I have a Series 1935F one dollar silver certificate misprint.  There is no printing on the back and there are no serial numbers printed on the face.  Condition of the bill is well worn with multiple folds and creases, but is otherwise fully intact.  Is there a range for its value?

Thank you for any information.

Hey Andy, that is an interesting note.  However, my first thought is that there is a 99% chance that the note has been chemically altered to remove those prints.  Currency is printed in 3 stages.  For your error to occur the first and third print would both have been missed.  The odds of that happening are virtually impossible.  

In reality, in that condition, if the error was authentic, it would still only be worth about $50 due to the condition.  Condition is still very important when dealing with rare currency.  People expect errors to be in perfect condition because in theory the error should have been quickly spotted.

You can tell if the note has been altered by its smell and by looking extremely closely at it.  If there is even a hint of an overprint, then it has been altered.

I can answer any question relating to valuing US Currency and rare coins. My specialty is national currency, large-size currency, and small size issues between 1928 and 1957. Many bank notes have variables that can make two seemingly identical notes have very different values. That is why it is so important to work with an expert. I also work with rare Canadian banknotes as well as some other foreign currency (mostly British Commonwealth countries).


I have been a full time currency dealer since 2006. I set up at about ten national coin and currency shows per year all across the country. My company has a retail location in Greenville, SC. I am in a unique position to see, value, and sell millions of dollars worth of paper money on a annual basis. I have been lucky enough to sell hundreds of individual banknotes worth over $10,000 each. I personally hold several world records for highest price paid for certain categories of banknotes. You can also find me locally in Greenville, SC where I run a small coin store called Greenville Coins.
