what errors increase value, what about a digit in the serial number being considerably lower than the rest?

how low of a serial number is considered collectable or desired by collectors?

All legitimate, major, errors have value. A gas pump error (one or more digits at least 1/3rd out of alignment, my criteria for it to have a premium.) is a neat find but are fairly common, especially on older notes. A low serial number, two digits or lower,  would have a premium, a serial number 10 or lower would have a higher premium because there are fewer of them. Some people collect or consider three digits a low number but those obviously carry a much lower premium compared to the others. There are all sorts of minor errors out there that have little to no value, the more dramatic the error the more it will be worth. Also condition is key, a heavily circulated gas pump will, normally, have no added value for example.

PMG has been running a nice monthly article on errors, take a look at them and also look at sold listings at auction houses like Heritage, Stack's Bowers, etc. to get a feel of values.
