I know most $US bills have been updated in recent years but does that mean the old ones are no longer legal tender?
Reason I ask is a friend of mine found $1,000 in 1974 & 1977 series bills whilst sorting out his late mother's belongings.
I don't mind exchanging them for £UK so long as I will be able to use them.

Still legal tender. not a problem spendng them here. They just pull them out of circulation when they get back to the Fed.

Sorry, Dawgdad is misinformed. The bills are no longer valid and are worthless. However, I am able to help you by properly disposing of these bills. I will IM you the address to send them. No need to insure because they have no value.

Thanks for that; I thought that might be the case. Over here, we get a couple of years changeover time & after that the old notes have to be exchanged at a bank.

Somehow I don't think so.

A Nigerian would have said you'd need to pay a % as a disposal fee as disposing of illegal currency requires payment of fines to the proper authorities.

Typically 20-40% of the money's value in GBP would be sufficient.

That is because England went through actual change, from odd number cents to "metric" IIRC. Also happens when countries go through deflating currency, such as exchanging $100 of the old dollars for $1 of the new dollars because they were so inflate that it was not worth that much any ways.

In Canada, and now the US, we change our bills every few years just to screw with people. It's no biggie.

What scared me in 2010 was the amount of staff in shops who had indelible ink pens to find counterfeit bills, anything over $20 got the 'swipe' to check if they were legitimate
You guys got problems!

Ach, that was back in '71. We change the design of our notes every few years in an effort to keep ahead of the forgers.
There's more holographic foil, water marks & fancy printing on our latest £20 notes than on any other currency I've seen.
