my mom has this dollar that she has had a very long time now she would like to find out more about and see if it is worth anything because a friend of hers keeps trying to buy it from her, what would be a fair price.

Hi Debbie,
Actually, it isn't half printed.  The "final" printing in the process is adding the letter on the left that denotes the federal reserve bank wi the serial number as well as the serial number on the right.  This is the 3rd set p in the process.
Your Mom's note has that printing but in the back.

It is an interesting error.  As for value, that's tough to say.  We can see it was folded, but can not see if there is other damage eg. Ink, pencil, pinholes, tears etc.
Just for fun, I would pay $125 for it if you want to sell.
