I have a very unique twenty dollar silver certificate. My father passed it on to me so it is something that is really special to me. It is a series of 1934 "F" with signatures from Morgenthau Jr. and the other signature is somewhat hard to read but I think it says Sinclair or something close to that. The serial number is F13622078 A. Also on it it has two B's printed on it one in the top left hand corner within the border and the other on is towards the bottom right hand corner. It is something that I have had many experts look at and so far they were not able to find anything on it in any of their books. Could anybody tell me what it is I have exactly and how much something like this might be worth?

    From Yahoo answers: The value depends upon
    -the color of the seal
    -the grade (condition)
    -the serial number
    -the series (1934, 1934 A, 1934 B, 1934 C or 1934 D) and
    -in some cases, the Federal Reserve Bank that issued it.

    To estimate the grade, see the guide at

    I will assume it has a green seal.

    In general, if the serial number does not include a star, a collector would expect to pay around
    $23 to $30 if it is graded "very fine"
    $60 to $125 if it is graded "uncirculated"

    and, if the serial number does include a star, a collector would expect to pay around
    $75 to $150 if it is graded "very fine"
    $500 to $2,500 if it is graded "uncirculated"

    If it has a brown seal instead it is more valuable, worth more than $10,000 if the serial number contains a star and if is graded "uncirculated."
