What is the Zegers/Winograd Project?
Submit Your Notes Below!
In 2014 & 2016 the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the governmental body responsible for printing US currency, mistakenly printed two identical 6.4 million-note print runs of $1 bills. That means that there are 6.4 million pairs of bills with matching serial numbers. To date, only 9 pairs have been matched. The matched pairs are estimated to be worth $20-$150k, depending on condition and serial number. The Zegers/Winograd project aims to connect people with matching bills and facilitate a buy, sell, or trade to put both bills in one owners hands. Enter your bill's information HERE to become part of the project!
