How much is a 102 Year Old dollar bill worth in good to Mint Condition?

My grandfather is moving out of his house and into a retirement home. While going through his things he came across a 102 year old Ten Dollar bill. (US currency). I was wondering in anyone has any insight as to how much it may be worth. I know its hard to know without seeing it by any clue would be great.

There are two or three different things your note could be, and all of them are good. You need to provide more info as to which one your note is.
The first possibility is the Series 1907 Gold Certificate with the portrait of Michael Hillegas at the front center. There are six different signature combinations, and even the most common signature note will sell for $180 on eBay in average Circulated Condition. Here is one that sold yesterday on eBay:

It could also be a Series 1908 silver certificate (which is worth about twice as much as the previous note) or a National Bank Note (which has the name and charter number of a specific National bank on it. Value is anywhere from $100 to several thousand, depending on condition and which bank).

Please provide more information (design / portrait, signatures, type of note: Silver certificate? Gold Certificate? National Bank Note?), and I can help you. By the way, to a collector, Good is a very heavily worn note. Grades go from there to Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, XF (Extremely Fine), AU About Uncirculated, to UNC (Uncirculated) and Choice UNC.
Saying a note is in Good to Mint condition really doesn't tell me much. Note that the note in the eBay lot I linked to has been professionally graded Fine, which is fairly worn if you look carefully.
