Default $2 bills worth anything?

My neighbor gave me 20 $2 bills from 1976. If I have to rate them I give most of them a 7. Are they worth anything besides $2? Thanks.

He just gave you 20 $2 bills? Did you give him $40 is more common bills in return?

Anyways, here's a lot of 21 $2 1976 bills. I don't know if they're the same type or anything, but here you go: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-Lot-of-...#ht_659wt_1161

older $2 bills have some collector value, but they still print $2 bills currently, so newer ones are only worth $2

Unless they are CU are star notes and or have fancy serial numbers then no. The only other thing is if they are error notes. Missing a seal different serial numbers ink transfer etc. Spend them at the store and have fun with the cashier.

The ones you have can sell for $2.25-$2.50 each if you sell them one by one

A waste of taxpayer money.

I receive one every now and then in change, usually dated from the 70s. Not sure why the Treasury still authorizes them.

Go to the bank and get them for face value.

It is one of the dumb laws on the books that they have to print them based on demand( i think they last printed them in 2010 or 2011) I would assume at some point Obama or the next president will put an end to that. Just like they did to half dollars.

Do you only want ones from the 70's, I can get you an unlimited amount of newer $2's, all brand new still in the bank wrap.

I am fairly sure they still mint half dollars. They may be NIFC but they are making them.

And the best use for a newer $2 bill is to use them for the tip rail at the strip club.

You are correct they still make them, but only avilable through the Mint.
