Hello Lobo,

If you are interested in seeing what your Series EE are worth, try http://wwws.publicdebt.treas.gov/BC/SBCPrice on the Bureau of Public Debt website. I entered two $100 Series EE bonds, 01-1985 and 12-1985, since you did not say when in 1985 you purchased them. Here are the results:

Issue Issue Int Next Final
Date Series Denom Price Interest Value Rate Accrual Maturity
12/1985 EE $100 $50.00 $96.28 $146.28 4.00% 12/2004 01/2015
01/1985 EE 100 50.00 102.16 152.16 4.00% 01/2005 01/2015

While the early bonds have not fully matured, they have undoubtedly exceeded their face value.

I use the Savings Bond Wizard (SBW) to track my Series EE and I bonds and it is a great time saver, assuming enter the bonds in a timely manner and do not let them stack up for a year or two. I buy a Series I bond through payroll deduction every two weeks and it takes a minute to enter the data into SBW. Best of all, it is free from the Bureau of Public Debt website.
