Yet another treasure from today. Silver certificates were first printed in 1878 in response to protests of the gold-standard (all paper money was redeemable for gold, so now some of it was redeemable for silver!). This particular $1 bill is from 1935, the last year these certificates were printed.

It is the same size as modern $1 bills, though of course the look is slightly different. I must say I like the touches of blue--gives it a bit more character.

The thought today of redeeming money for precious metals is a bit...odd, but it was necessary in a time when the public was distrustful of paper money, not to mention fancy-shmancy standardized money printed by the federal government.

    I have a $1.00 Silver Certificate but I'm a little confused, it says series 1957, how is this possible if they stopped printing them in 1935? I'm not a collector so I may not understand the series #. Thank you for any info.

    Most 1935 and 1957 series Silver Certificates are worth a very small premium over face value. Circulated examples typically sell for $1.25 to $1.50 each, while Uncirculated $1 Silver Certificates are worth between $2 and $4 each. Exceptions to these values include Star notes (where the serial number is followed by a small star in place of the suffix letter), and other various varieties and blocks including 1935A Hawaii and North Africa notes, Experimental notes, and various rare blocks and serial number ranges.

    Like all forms of coin and currency collecting, CONDITION is incredibly important. It can be the difference between face value and $100! The average silver certificates from the 1930s sell around the double face-value range. However, there are a LOT of variables. Older = more value here though, and lots of other variables too. The certificates from the the 1950s don't sell for much more than face value, unless there is something else interesting going on (serial number, star number, etc.) The best way to get an accurate feel is to take your bills to your local numismatist club or coin dealer.
