    Do you usually examine currency for defects? I usually don’t but once noticed the printing on the back of a $100 bill was not aligned - it runs off the left side of the paper and there is a bit of the next bill printed on the right side. I stuck it in my box of oddly stuck coins and other misprinted bills accumulated over the years. Are these worth keeping?

    I'd hang on to it(them). Don't know about currency or coins, but in the stamp world misprints are usually rare and valuable.

    There are collectors for everything. If nothing else, absent an economic collapse, a $100 bill will still be worth $100. Paper currency collectors like them to be crisp and unfolded. The rarer an item is the more chance collectors will pay above face value to have one in their collection. Collectors like their bragging rights.

    Doubtful, counterfeiters do not want to try passing bills that draw attention.

    That's odd. I just click on it and it comes right up. I've never logged in. I will try posting the photo. Hopefully it's not to large.
