I found-- in a foreclosed house that I bought, I was kind of cleaning out a bunch of junk in there and came across this book in a closet, kind of stuffed in the back corner. And boom, that's what I came across. Whoa-- a Martha Washington $1 bill. This is pretty amazing. COREY: She looks really like George Washington, though, doesn't she? RICK: Show a little respect. I'm just saying that her hair sucks. That's all. WOMAN: Hm. Coming the pawn shop today to sell this dollar that I found with Martha Washington on it. Hoping to sell the dollar for about $1,500. It'll be a nice little cushion. I'll probably buy something cool, you know, maybe a hot tub or a pool table or something like that to go with the house. RICK: This is back when we used to care about what our money looked like. BRYAN: Yeah, this is gnarly. This is technically the only woman that's been on a US bill. I mean, they just announced that they're most likely going to put a woman on the $10 bill now. I heard that. No, it's just an incredibly good shape. Luckily it was in this book. How much are you looking to get out of it? You know, I looked online a little bit. And what I could see is it, you know, was worth around $1,500. COREY: I mean, it's in really good shape. Do we need to get it graded? Well, that's the weird thing. When it's in this good of shape, you really do need to get it graded. And there's 10 grades of a pristine bill. I mean, this thing could be worth anywhere from between $1,000 and $10,000. $10,000? Oh, my gosh. It all depends on how it grades. Out and there's a lot of variables when it comes to paper money. I have a friend who's in town right now, and he grades bills. I'm going to get him down here. He'll tell me what grade it is and help me out with the price a little bit. And we'll go from there, OK? - Perfect. Sounds good. Thanks. Be right back. So hearing that could be worth $10,000, I'm pretty stoked. That'd be amazing. Grading paper money is a really, really tricky business. So I'm calling it a friend of mine who does this for a living. How's it going, buddy? Hey, Rick. Nice to meet you. Peter. Bryan. This is the, you know, Martha $1 bill. It's in great shape. And-- but we are [inaudible] with paper money and you guys and your little grading weirdness. Sure. Sure. This is fantastic. My name is Peter Treglia. And I work for a company called Stack's Bowers Galleries. I'm an expert in rare United States paper currency. Well, this is an 1891 $1 silver certificate. Well, the overall condition is pretty fantastic, actually. - Grab yo a tray real quick. - Yeah, please. Thank you. I brought my light here. OK, so as you know, paper currency is-- it's very fragile. Unlike coins, you can kind of fool around. You can iron. You can enhance the condition of a bill. But-- well, this is actually really-- this is really, really high grade. At first glance, appears to be flawless, and if so, could be worth upwards of $20,000. Wow. It is in absolutely awesome condition. The best a bill can be is gem crisp uncirculated. And the worst is a poor. This is kind of towards the top end of the range. BRYAN: OK. PETER TREGLIA: However, it does have a slight, very slight, centerfold, which takes it out of the uncirculated category. It is not in the top range. As far as value, I would put a conservative retail value around $1,500. OK. - But it's a cool find here. - Yeah. I mean, I'm stoked. I just love the fact that you're seeing Martha Washington is on a centerfold. [laughter] Thanks, man, appreciate it. - [inaudible], Rick. - Thank you, buddy. - Corey. It's a pleasure. - Thanks, Peter. Nice meeting you. - Take care. If the shop is able to acquire this bill, I think it's a fantastic buy for them. They should have no issues selling it quickly. So the man said to $1,500. What do you say, man? Yeah, he said $1,500 was a fair retail value, OK? And I have to make a living. So I'll give you $800, $800? Oh, man, you're killing me. You just got offered $800 for a $1 bill-- --that you found. Yeah, I get you guys got to make a living. But come on, man. $1,400. Tell you what, I'll have a grand for it. I think it'll sell really quick because they're talking about putting Harriet Tubman on the $10 bill now. So there's some more interest in this bill. Can you do $1,200, man? I will go $1,100. I won't go a penny more. That's what I can do. I did find it in the book, so I can't really complain about that, so. - All right, deal. Thank you guys, man. Come with me, and we'll do some paperwork. Walked in the shop with a book and a dollar bill, and now I'm leaving with $1,100 in my pocket. his.
