What is serial box?

Serial Box is a database containing serial numbers for software as well as hack/crack information. The serials themselves are often 'shared' by a single purchaser who has submitted their serial to Serial Box's authors (although the legality of this in relation to a software vendors SLA is questionable). Using Serial Box in no way ensures that you are clear of copyright infringement issues. Using someone else's serial number from serial box means that any networked computer is liable to deauthorize in the event that a program with the same serial number is also connected. That being said, it's best to use programs that are authorized with serial box serial numbers offline only.

What are rare American fifty dollar note serial numbers?

There really aren't any "rare" serial numbers, all serial numbers are only used once on a particular denomination/issuing bank/series. The most in demand are the first notes and the last notes of each series. Also in demand are the ones with all consecutive numbers (such as the serial number being all 4s or 7s), also popular with some collectors are radar notes, notes with serial numbers that are the same backwards and forwards. Overall though, the paper money market is pretty cold right now and it is a lot harder to sell an interesting note, particularly a modern note with an interesting serial number than something like a rare coin.
