The value of a five dollar bill is five dollars. It's not clear what you mean by "consecutive serial numbers."

The star at the end of the serial number means that when the original bill was printed it had a defect in the serial number and had to be destroyed. Because no two bills can be printed with the "same" serial number the new bill printed in its place has a star at the end to signify that it's a replacement for the destroyed bill. Having a bill with a star on it can mean that it's worth a couple dollars more unless it's a collectors item.

A star at the end of a number means that at one point in time, there was a dollar bill with the same number on it. Because of resons unknown, the government burned the dollar bill, and made another dollar with the same number, adding the star.CorrectionHere is the statement from the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing regarding star notes: When an imperfect note is detected during the manufacturing process after the serial number has been overprinted, it must be replaced with a new note. A "star" note is used to replace the imperfect note. Reusing that exact serial number to replace the imperfect note is costly and time consuming. The "star" note has its own special serial number followed by a star in place of a suffix letter.The serial number of the imperfect note that was removed is not used again in the same numbering sequence.
