Star Notes are banknotes with an asterisk or star after or before the serial number. In the US the Bureau of Engraving and Printing inspects currency for printing errors before releasing the notes into circulation. When notes that have been printed incorrectly have been discovered the misprinted "errors notes" are destroyed and replaced with star notes to ensure that no two bills within a certain series have the same 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.

The 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.
