    I have 24 consecutive serial number 1957B Silver cerificate star notes, these notes are Crisp Uncirculated. They have zero signs of wear, age or discoloration. I bought them at an auction when Silver was $14.21. Is there a way to find There value & if this is the longest run of 1957B series or if it is the longest run of pre-1963, 1953 $1 silver certificate star notes?

    Not sure I understand your reference to the price of silver in this post?

    As far as value of your Notes, I’d suggest checking auction prices realized. EBay is one option.

    Here’s an auction of 25 that ended on June 10th. Depending on what you have (condition, block, etc.), this may give you a ballpark idea.

    Can you post pictures?

    I'm not a paper collector, but isn't it fairly common for star notes to be issued as an entire strap of consecutive serials? Was it different for silver certificates?

    Also, you'll probably be advised to edit your post to remove your email address, so spambots don't harvest it.

    You weren't allow to redeem silver certificates for silver after (1968?).
    Through 1964 you could still get a silver dollar for one at the bank.
    And then after that, little silver bullion?
    Silver certificates have nothing to do with the price of silver.
    Let's see some photos.

    This auction ended in late July, and coincidentally is exactly what you’re asking....24 consecutive 1957B star notes,

    That is the set i bought, 007 serial number, $176. I know they are more valuable but I have no way to actually put a value. My insurance company wants a hard value or they will only insure at my purchase price.

    You won these in a true auction on EBay. IMHO, your purchase price is the best indicator of (fair market) value.

    I tend to agree with @DUNK 2 .... the deal you got is what I would consider average. They sell from $5 -$10 each and you paid a little over $7.00. Many of the 1957, 1957A and 1957B $1 SC’s were saved, many in consecutive packs.
