2003 $2 -  Evolutions Matching Set - I00002557*

2003 $2 - Evolutions Matching Set - I00002557*

Price: $175

Limited to only 2000 sets worldwide, these were sold out in a New York half-hour. To quote from the BEP website: “Due to an extremely high volume of phone and internet orders, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing sold out of the $2 Evolutions within the first 30 minutes of the release date of 8:00 AM EDT on July 27, 2005.”

According to the BEP description,“This set features, for the first time ever, a crisp, uncirculated Series 2003 $2 note and $2 star note with MATCHING LOW SERIAL NUMBERS representing the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.” The serial number range on these 2000 sets is believed to be from I00002101 to I00004100.

As it is, this remains the only example of a matching star and non-star set from the same Series ever issued by the BEP at any time and in any denomination. Its uniqueness is probably what caused the initial buying stampede.

Fortunately, despite the overwhelming initial demand, sets are still available at reasonable prices in the marketplace.

However, the release of the popular 2008 $2 Notes, along with the historically strong collector base for deuces, may lead to renewed interest in this set.

Like Tony Bennett, you never know who or what will suddenly be re-discovered by a new generation and appreciated once again for a uniqueness and class that trancsends time.

We’ve been wrong before (we have many references you can call to confirm that), but it does seem that for the 2003 $2 Evolutions Matching Set…“The Best is Yet to Come”.

For your collecting pleasure, we have available low-numbered set #I00002557*. It is priced very reasonably, almost for a song, at $175.
