Star notes are used by the BEP (Bureau of Engraving and Printing) to replace misprinted/damaged currency before it goes into circulation. These replacement notes are printed just like normal notes, except there is a star printed in the serial number. They are used to maintain a correct count of notes in a serial number run. Star notes are more scarce than notes with a normal serial number, and as such, are widely collected by numismatists.

A United States Note / Legal Tender Note is a type of paper money that was issued by the U.S. government from 1862 to 1971. They were originally issued by the U.S. Treasury for circulation to pay expenses incurred by the Union during the American Civil War. Over time, legislation governing these notes had been modified numerous times and many different versions were issued by the Treasury.
