Owner's Description

A star in the collection is always cool. I disavowed stars as a novice collector. I have the same attitude as I do to serial numbers. Who cares if the serial numbers are all 5's with one other digit. Even all 5's or all any number has little meaning to me. The "A1" $10 buffalo legal tender note is selling for $1,000,000!! Definitely super cool, the first buffalo ever printed, but a million bucks?? Same with star notes, they look cool, I like them on small size, cheaper notes because you can really beef up your scores on PMG's note registry but star notes really aren't that special to me. Sure, they are rare, but I would rather have a high serial number, non-star note with great beauty. However!!! Having said that, the large stars that are have hollow centers look cool. And to get one on the super common Fr-237 is not a huge expense. On the Fr-237, the star adds to the overall attraction of the note.
