I have an older $20 that has a 1/4 wide blank stripe just left of the face, as if it were creased when it was printed but the back is normal and the length is normal

Any one else have one???

I have a dollar bill which is off center.
About 3/8" border along the top 1/2 border along the bottom.
Is it worth anything?

I have a $20 bill brand new straight out of the ATM that was aligned wrong so most of the picture is at the top and the top of another one is at the bottom. Just wanted to know if I should just try and spend it or if it might be worth something.

Yes it is worth money. Don't listen to Tallyho and others. Any extremely off-center paper money like yours is worth more than face and sometimes worth a lot more than face. This does not include the slightly off center stuff like the dollar bill mentioned above, however.

And other misprints being mentioned here are also worth more than face. Go to ebay and check it out.

I have a 1993 $20 bill that is miscut and misprinted - the serial numbers are printed over the words Washington, D.C. and over the treasurer of the united states signature. Any worth to it?
