1957 A $ 1 Silver Certificate Star
Offered here is a rare 1957 “A” $1 Dollar series Silver Certificate STAR Note in Gem Choice Uncirculated condition. The STAR signifies a “replacement note”. When The Bureau of Engraving and Printing or BEP prints a sheet of notes and they are damaged in any way, the notes must be destroyed. By law, they need to print notes bearing the damaged serial numbers. When they print the new notes, they must bear a STAR in front of the serial number. This designates the note as a “replacement note”. The STAR Notes are far more valuable and much harder to find than a regular printed note.
The Silver Certificate is designated by the Blue Seal on the right center of the note. It also has “Silver Certificate” on the top center of the note. The note is centered very well, and the ink really pops. The colors are bright and bold. This note has fantastic eye appeal with no sign of wear on the corners or the sides. All of the corners and edges of the notes are crisp and clean. There are no pinholes, rips, stains, or tears.
The 1935 $1 dollar Silver Certificate has 9 different notes in the series. They start at 1935 and then go from 1935A to 1935H. The reason for the different types of notes is that when the “Treasurer of the United States” or the “Secretary of the Treasury” changes, by law they must print notes bearing their name. That is how the “A” through “H” series works, or any other dated currency with multiple lettering in the series. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing or BEP will print millions of “backs” of notes for a series. Then print a set number of “fronts” of the notes as needed for the series with the correct Treasurer of The United States or Secretary of The Treasury. You can locate their signatures on the bottom left side and bottom right side of the front of the note. The signatures on these notes are Smith on the left and Dillon on the right. A lot of collectors will collect the entire series in a designated note, which adds to the fun of collecting currency as there are many options.
