    Will the bank accept a torn bill?

    My dollar bill is torn and missing the piece. I edited a picture so that you can see the part missing (which is the left). Is it still any good? http://tinypic.com/r/4g6fr4/5

    • As stated above, all you need is 51% of the bill for it to be considered legal tender. So, yes, the bank will accept it.

    • Currency notes which are: NOT CLEARLY more than one-half of the original note and/or, in such condition that the value is questionable and special examination is required to determine its value. Currency can become mutilated in any number of ways. The most common causes are: fire, water, chemicals, explosives; animal, insect or rodent damage; and petrification or deterioration by burying. Under regulations issued by the Department of the Treasury, mutilated United States currency may be exchanged at face value if: more than 50% of a note identifiable as United States currency is present; or, 50% or less of a note identifiable as United States currency is present, and the method of mutilation and supporting evidence demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Treasury that the missing portions have been totally destroyed.
