Information on these Silver
Series 1928 One Dollar Bills:
as well as Legal Tender Notes were the first small sized $1 bills
issued. The obverse features a
cropped version of George Washington's portrait that was previously
featured on large size $1
Silver Certificates. The reverse features a
large ornate "ONE" superimposed by "ONE DOLLAR". Because of the
reverse, this bill is sometimes referred to as a "Funny Back".
The note's seal and serial numbers
printed in blue. The series 1928 bill can be differentiated
from future series by the placement of the treasury seal on the left of
the obverse of the note, superimposed by the legal tender obligation.
Also, on the right of the obverse "ONE" is printed
in large gray letters. (In future series the seal is
super-imposed over "ONE" on the right side of the note.)
is a Silver Certificate?
Certificates were United States Currency authorized in the Act
of Congress of February 28, 1878 and issued through 1964.
Large size Silver
issued through 1923 and then the currency
changed to the small or modern size we use today.
Certificates all have distinguishing blue seals. Silver Certificates could
be exchanged for silver dollars or silver bullion. The
Silver Law of 1963 changed this, discontinuing redemption for silver
dollars in 1964; then silver bullion in 1968 (based on silver price of
$1.29 per ounce). Small size
Silver Certificates have
been issued in $1, $5, and $10 denominations.
