Silver Certificates were originally introduced in 1878 and
involved denominations from$1 to $1,000 on large size paper money. In
fact, the most expensive US note to ever sell was a $1,000 Silver Certificate
from series of 1891, featuring the portrait of William Marcy, the Secretary of
War. It realized $2,600,000 in a private (but verified) transaction
including both Stacks-Bowers and dealer Sergio Sanchez, Jr.
Small (modern) size silver certificates were continued in 1928,
when the United States underwent a major redesign change in significantly
reducing the size of her paper money. So, the small size silver
certificate before you now comes from a long and storied history of rare and
expensive banknotes. Silver certificates—on small size notes—were issued
only in denominations of $1, $5, and $10. They were abolished by the Act
of June 4, 1963 whereby the paper instrument was no longer redeemable for
silver granules. The blue serial numbers and seal make recognition easy.
