You might want to look into your wallet to see if you have any of these one-dollar bills because they could be worth much more than face value.

Over the past few months, my dad has been obsessed with finding rare cash and coins. He's always asking me if I know anything about it. As I am not a collector or know-it-all, I do not. However, since it's my dad, I do a little research to find the answer to his questions. That leads to social media sites like Facebook always popping up random ads based on what I have been searching online. For once, I am thankful for these ads because they led me to discover something pretty cool that I know my dad will love to find out about. There a quite a few dollar bills worth a lot of money, and you could have them in your wallet right now.

We receive the cash and put it in our wallets until we spend it. Chances are, you have a one-dollar bill in your wallet right now. If you do, check the serial number on it, because it could be worth more than a single dollar.
