    I have not more than $10. I don't have more than $10.

    1. I have not more than $10.

    2. I don't have more than $10.


    Are the both grammatical and same in meaning?.

    They mean the same thing but the second is much more common in modern English. I might expect to see your first in a novel from a couple of centuries ago. If it said "I have no more than $10" then it would be relatively common and natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
