    Some creases etc. I wished I would have traded the ones of all denominations when I worked at the bank. Blue and Red Seals.

    There's a lot of stuff that I wish I'd bought and kept when I worked in a bank in the 1960s. But you have to remember that buying a blue seal $10 bill was a major investment, and a $1000 in silver coins was a fortune. Besides, in terms of return, almost all the bills I should have bought have actually lost value since then after taking into account inflation. A couple of national bank note that I did buy are exceptions, but to keep up a $10 silver certificate would have to be worth about $150 today just to break even.

    57 blue seals are one of the most produced
    notes of all time there for the value of CH/CU is only about $15 if that and stars
    not much more.

    I bought the above CU note about 8 or 9 years ago for about $15 (I believe). Posted it (& a star SC) on some forum back then & was pretty surprised to learn how many were issued right into the 60's I believe (like billions were issued!)

    Thanks for posting this. I'd forgotten about the silver certificates I have. None of them are in pristine condition and out of the 50 I have, only a handful have the star designation.

    Decided to get a local Florida bank account IMG_1342.jpeg IMG_1343.jpeg IMG_1344.jpeg IMG_1345.jpeg last spring. A quiet little branch near me. Been training them on numismatics. They save anything strange to them. And I give a little lesson at the teller window.
    Next week they will get some cookies. More if they’re good
    Here’s a godless dollar 1935 D

    So neat! Awesome! Yes I had one girl at our bank watching for coins. She has transferred. Very nice especially that 35!
    And the 28!

    Don’t think they like taking pictures in the bank. Not sure if the girls will pose outside under the shade tree. But I’ll ask, just for you.

    Be sneaky about it. They are called creeper shots for good reason. Oh and these days? They'll pose for you. :D

    Unless it has a star....super low serial number (or other odd SN)....or very high-grade....they really don't have much more value than $1-$3, right ?

    I purchased a few in high-grade years ago....not sure what I paid for them, maybe $40 on average ?

    Here's one:

    It seems that generic, run-of-the-mill graded Silver Certificates may have appreciated (50-100%) in the last 4-5 years....would that be correct ?

    It's tough to gauge sometime, you see a higher price in auctions today and you can't be sure it's a price move or if there's a rare SN or currency block or something that the bill has driving up the price.

    I was checking out the HA Weekly Currency Auction last night and it seemed that basic SC's, and modern Radars/Repeators/etc. had moved since I was last super-active a few years ago.
