Ever gotten a $2 bill in change at the store?

Recently, my husband went to get something at the grocery store. He gave the guy $10 and expected to get $3 back. He should have gotten three bills. The guy gave him only two. How could that be? My husband told him that he made a mistake and only gave him $2. The guy said that he gave him $3. How was that possible with only two bills? Turned out one of them was a $2 bill. I wonder if that $2 is real or counterfeit? I have never gotten a $2 bill in change at the store in my entire life... Didn't even know they still existed.

The $2 existed before and it still exists. All the $2 bills my husband has say 2003 or 2009 on them. One actually says 2013. I am not really sure if a lot of them are in circulation but they can still be used if you have them.

I'm sure no one would take the time to counterfeit a small bill. I'm a cashier and I will see two dollar bills here and there but i don't give them out. I figure the bank can deal with them, Maybe that cashier had limited bills in his drawer and had no choice. Probably your husband could have asked for ones instead.

What is a $2 Dollar Bill worth? Typically the $2 bill is worth its face value. Special $2 bills have been made in recent years, however they are not worth anything more than face value on the collectors market and most current $2 bills are not worth much more than their face value.
