I received change last month and received 8 brand new $10 bills in sequential order. When I got home I could see that the security thread was not completely Sealed on the bills at the very bottom of the notes. Would I rather have brand new $10 bills in sequential order without this flaw or not? Sorry, I'm a newbie to forums. Thanks

Welcome to the forum @1Thread2
Our paper currency is distributed in packs of new consecutive notes, so having consecutive notes is not out of the ordinary. I’m not familiar with a security thread not being sealed at the end error. Are you able to post photos ?

Hi Steve in Tampa, I don't know if you can see what I'm talking about. They are below the second L. Any information would be helpful.

Thanks for the photos. I call it a minor flaw. Not significant enough, especially without magnification, to be an error note. And, the serial numbers on the notes are unremarkable. To me they’re spenders.

Thanks Steve, It makes me feel better. I spent 2 of them on the way home before I looked at them. I appreciate your insight. Regards, 1thread2

Yes,that small "indentation" you see is in fact common and adds no value.I have seen many.

This is a common occurrence, when the notes are cut apart, the security thread is pulled slightly as it offers more resistance to the cutting blade.  This causes the slight buckle at the opposite end of the note.
