Uncut $2 Bills in Banker’s Portfolio
These unique, uncut $2 bills are distributed by the World Reserve Monetary Exchange and elegantly displayed in a banker’s portfolio. Uncut and crisp, uncirculated bills are seldom seen, not to mention impossible to predict how much they may be worth in the future. The U.S. Government also discontinued printing the $2 bill in 2006 adding to its rare nature. This item would make a unique gift for an individual who’s hard to buy for or as an investment for a small child.
