    Is there any value other than $1.00 to an old silver certificate with the word ONE on the back instead of the current production bills with the eyeball-one- eagle? Thanks Ross Puls

    PS It's worn & not in the best condition. Just something I put away many years ago.

    The idea was that you could trade it for a silver dollar. try it. a silver dollar is worth about $34 right now.

    I just recieved two of them in change from store yesterday. Mine are 1957 series with blue seal. Some kid must have robbed Gramma.

    I have a book ( check book style ) filled with 50 $1 bills all new and in sequential order that was given to me in 1978 as a graduation gift, pretty cool I think.

    needs to shoot more: That does sound cool I've never seen one of those, what I have have been around the block a few times, was just curious if they had any collector value. Ross

    I have one with "Allah Is The Only God" stamped on the back if that'll help.

    Are they different than these two? These are Silver Certificate $1 bills which I received in change years ago. They are in very poor condition. It sounds like the one you are describing has different markings on back.

    grntitan: One of them is what you have--the other just has "ONE" horizontally printed on the back and "one" vertically at each end. Just curious as I put them away about 40+ years ago. Ross

    Anywhere from 4.00- 65.00 depending on condition.

    A red seal would bring in more.

    Notice that back in the early 20s, the bills were considerably larger:

    PS: Some banks still offer the "checkbooks" of singles, especially around Christmas.
