    It looks like it has a error on it where the word Washington DC is stamped upward I'm comparing it with another silver certificate let me know if you see other errors thanks. The bottom one is possible error. 15854366155862347068543640330983.jpg 15854365299706349076854783316520.jpg

    It is not a printing error. There were different types of seal styles for that year. You have 2 examples.

    There is a very slight shift also. It is not centered. The seal and serials are a little low. No premium unless it is an extreme shift. The notes seem to be in very good condition.

    Both are normal but different examples of the 2 seal styles from that year.

    I imagined you would know and chime in! ;)

    I did a google search and the first 2 images that they show are like the 2 that the OP has shown. One is printed Higher and the other in the middle.
    And that is all I know because I read somthing about it some time ago. :pompous:

    The blue seals on the OP’s two notes are identical. The placement may be slightly different on the two notes but both are within BEP tolerances, and the seals themselves are identical. The size of the seal was reduced in size between series 1934 and series 1935, and different seal colors were used for some special printings of series 1935A, but all $1 1935E SCs have the same blue Treasury Seal.

    In addition, the article you linked mentions a grade of MS 63, which you will never see on paper money. MS (mint state) is a coin term and not used with paper currency.

    Sorry but I am not seeing that they are identical.

    The Top seal the words WASHINGTON D.C. looks centered with the letters close together and the lower seal looks higher and the letters look spread out.

    You are correct about that and I apologize for provided false information. But it does show the different types of seals. My point was that they show different seals but they don't explain why the seals in question have different positions for the word WASHINGTON D.C.

    The back is printed first. The face or front is printed next, minus the blue seal and serial numbers. The third print or overprint is last and sometimes it’s not perfectly centered, and that’s what you’re seeing.

    @SteveInTampa
    So the 2 examples I have shown from Google have the same Printing Error Issue. You can claerly see the different positions :watching:

    No. The difference is minor and well within BEP tolerances.

    Good to know! So a Printing varience? Within tolerance? OK. Thanks again.

    Both appear to be cut high on the boarder (Top) I wouldn't think that would be
    something common at I am sure there are more centered not from that particular series.

    Notice how low the signature is on the bottom note compared to the top one? That is because in those days the signatures were not part of the plate but were applied during the third printing.

    The distance between the 'Series E' and the blue seal...
    ... seems identical for both seals.:yawn:
    At the same time the distance between 'one dollar' and and the blue seal...
    ... appears very different for each blue seal.:eek:
    [Therefore the seals are different.]:smug:
    I am taking my meds.:)
