A Royersford man owns a 1933 $10 bill that could be worth
roughly $500,000, according to collectors.
Philly.com reported that Billy Baeder, 39, of Royersford, owns a bill with an unusual description that reads, "Payable in silver coin to bearer on demand," and has the serial number "A00000001A."
For those with cash hoping to make a purchase from Baeder, you’re out of luck. He’s not selling.
“If someone came to me and wanted to give me $500,000 for it, I would not sell it,” Baeder said, according to Philly.com. Baeder, who is a co-owner of Willie’s Auto & Truck repair in Royersford, has already turned down an offer of $300,000.
Baeder’s father, William Sr., who died in May, purchased roughly 25 years ago by Baeder’s father for “the size of a compact car,” according to the seller.
Baeder’s entire collection, made of roughly 1,000 notes gathered over 30 years between both collectors, is worth upwards of $1.5 million.
