    I think everyone here knows why I collect US Currency...always looking for something on the bill that makes each of them unique!

    I don't do paper so I'm generally clueless on the subject.

    However, I must say I think that 1891 $1 is cool looking even without the solid serial number. (With it ... well ... that's just supercool.)

    But do my eyes deceive me in seeing that it's not all there? :(

    More of a "75c" silver certificate, then?

    Ah, well. It's still neato-cool.

    Nice additions @Clarenze Cruz .

    Looks like the Martha might have been a wallet piece.

    Perhaps sometimes taken out of the wallet for bar bets?

    Didn't notice the first time that Martha was Marthaless...

    MEC2: When I first saw this note, I also did not notice right away that Martha's Portrait is missing. Too bad. I wish this note was not ripped off.

    Better pictures of the two notes again:

    "75 cents" is correct! I am persuaded that one could cut up a fractional currency note in order to make an appropriate remittance through the mail.
    Fractional currency was handy for mail order purchases.
    (fractional currency came about because of recurring silver coinage shortages)
    Too bad the lovely Mrs. Washington cannot grace us with her charms, this time.
