I'm not much of a currency collector, but have been lurking here for awhile and learning a lot.  I've been doing coins since the early 70s, ancients/medieval to US Civil War tokens to numismatic literature and most things in between.  I recognize a few usernames from the coin forums.   

I've had these 1963 FRN stars and was wondering if they are $2-$3 notes or worthy of a currency sleeve (I have loads of 2x2s but not many sleeves in my supply inventory).  Both are CU but have poor centering.  The reverses are similar (I take terrible pics).  Regardless of the value, I'm keeping them.  Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the Paper Money forum.

I believe they are worthy of a currency sleeve. If you’re low on sleeves, put them both in one sleeve. Many times when I have several similar notes or consecutive notes, I’ll put more than one note per sleeve.

I love these 1963 series as there were varieties to be found which can be worth more.  
Could you please turn them over and see if the small number in the lower right is number 447 or lower?
If so they printed that note using a printing plate that looks really close but is actually from the prior run of silver certificate Blue Seals, and you have a Mule.

I collect these and not are all Mules, especially not in your high serial number range for B-* s. 
Just for fun I'll make a wild guess that you have back plate 471 judging from surrounding notes in my collection

Do the mule notes (447 or lower ) only show up in 1963 Star's or do the 1963 non'stars have
mule note's in them as well?  What about 1963-A series both star and non-star's ?
Checking my Dist. set's now...

Series 1963 $1 mules are available for every district on non-star notes as well as stars. The two most desirable are B-B and G-B mules. I am not aware of any 1963A $1 mules.

I take terrible pics but  the back plate numbers for the previous star are 524 and 529

I also have 2 other 1963 notes (AU, not Crisp Unc)

G02572028* Back plate 443 - It's a mule (BTW: any premium over a regular AU 1963 star note?)
B95955468B Back plate 486

Thanks for the info on the mule notes. I wasn't aware of them
