Interesting about how long the different denominations have different “till lives.”

Anyone out there know how bills that are too worn get taken out of circulation? Or say I’ve received a bill that clearly won’t make it into the ATM, will a bank replace it for me?

Damaged U.S. currency—paper bills—that have merely been damaged can typically be replaced at a bank, while bills that have been mutilated must be mailed to the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing for replacement. ... Bills that are dirty, defaced, or torn can typically be replaced at a bank.
