A star note is a United States bank note that has an asterisk (*), or star, in the serial number. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing inspects currency for printing errors prior to releasing notes into general circulation. When notes are discovered that have been printed incorrectly (such as having the serial numbers upside down, etc.) these misprinted notes (error notes) are replaced with star notes because no two bills can be produced with the same serial number. They are used to maintain a correct count of notes in a serial number run. By their nature, star notes are more rare than notes with standard serial numbers and as such are widely collected. Some of the highest prices paid for modern (post-1928) U.S. banknotes have been for star notes.
