U.S. 1935 $1 Silver Certificate, Very Good. These 1935 $1 silver certificates circulated while America was still in the depths of the Great Depression. That same year, Amelia Earhart made the first solo flight across the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii to California and the Social Security Act was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Featuring a distinctive blue seal, small-sized $1 silver certificates were issued in 1928, 1934, 1935 and 1957, and could be redeemed for their face value in silver dollar coins — and later raw bullion — upon demand. In the early 1960s, silver certificates were discontinued; although they are still considered legal tender at face value, they can no longer be redeemed for the precious metal.

Finding a Silver Certificate is not always easy. Finding an affordable 1935 in VF condition is rare. I am now a proud owner of such a certificate. I now own all of the 1935 series, including the yellow and brown 1935A. But, one day I hope to own the 1935 A experimental paper marked R and S. In the meantime, I am enjoying this 1935 plan bill as the first in my 1935 set of 13 out of 15 bills. ICCoin was very helpful in my search.
