Hello.  I’ve been holding onto these for decades.  How do they appraise?  How much might they appreciate in value in the years to come?  Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hello and welcome 🙂 . I can see your bills are in pretty good condition, which is great. The first 1976 $2 bill, the one in the second picture, has a low serial number and it is a star note, which has a significantly higher value than the rest. Star notes are replacement notes that have a star behind the serial number. These replacement bills were printed from 12 different federal reserve banks and only two of them are rare. The ones printed in Kansas City and Minneapolis, are very sought after by collectors. You can check your bill by looking on the front left-hand side to see the issuing bank's name.

Additionally, the average value of the star notes in good condition is between $80 and $150, and since yours has a low serial number I guess it can achieve at least $100, but of course, I can't guarantee. About the rest of the $2 bills, they are in good overall condition, but I don't see anything special about them, they don't have any rare or fancy serial number, nor they are star notes. These bills are probably worth around $2 to $5. You can check prices on eBay.

Now let's talk about the silver certificate $1 bill. The 1935$1 silver certificates are very common, however, there are different seal types and different varieties that can be valuable. You can see blue seals, brown seals, and yellow seals. Yours has a blue seal. Also, there are different series of these bills including the - 1935, 1935A, 1935B, 1935C, 1935D, 1935E, 1935F, 1935G, and 1935H. Yours is 1935-D. Uncirculated specimens are usually worth around $13 to $15, while yours is circulated the value is lower, and I don't think it can exceed $10. Once again, these are just presumptions. 

In case you are willing you can always have your bills appraised and graded at reputable sources such as PCGS, and PMG.
