This post includes the much older red seal two's dated 1953 & 1963 and a later green seal note of 1976. I've always liked the $2 bill because I guess it's different and along with the fact that the reverse artwork is so cool. The note in pic 4 has a different reverse (back side) than the bill in pic two. The 1976 note has a very ornate depiction of all the guys signing the Declaration Of Independence. Maybe I'll delete pic three and show the different backside of the bill in pic four.

One interesting note about these notes is that the older bills (pics 1-3) say at the top of the bill "United States Note". On the newer bills such as the 1976 example, it says "Federal Reserve Note". Not being a currency collector, I'm unsure why there is this difference.

    Not being a currency collector, I have still put away quite a few of these notes down through the years. My justification was I could always spend them if I needed to. As far as anything I collect, it doesn't take a whole lot of justification on my part to collect anything. Pack-rat is a term used by former significant others. I'm unsure why I have the strong attraction to these $2 bills. But I guess since the thought that because they are different, and since they are not commonly used, coupled with the fact that they are rarely seen, has to be the reason or a strong part of it. But thank you for that clarification and your comment AR8Jason.
