Two things affect the price of a bill, rarity and quality. And if you're lucky enough to have a bill that is both rare and high quality, you could be looking at quite the payday.
According to coinsandcanada.com, the rarest $1 bills are the ones in perfect or near-perfect condition. Bills can be categorized: Good, Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, Extremely Fine, About Uncirculated and Uncirculated. The higher quality ones can be worth up to tens or even hundreds of times the value printed on them.
But here's where it gets interesting, there is a rare series of bills from 1954 called "Devil's Face" notes. These bills were taken out of circulation because some people thought that the Queen's hair on them looked sort of like a devil's face.
