Information on these Silver Certificate Series 1934 Ten Dollar Bills:
In 1929 all US Currency was changed to its current modern size. Series 1934 $10 Silver Certificates were the first small size $10 Silver Certificates issued in large quantities (21,860,000 printed). There was a series 1933, however, it was a small printing (552,000 printed for 1933 and 1933 A) and the bills are very rare and not many survived. The obverse features a cropped version of Alexander Hamilton's portrait. Hamilton was the first U.S. Secretary of Treasury and one of two non-presidents still featured on U.S. Currency today (Benjamin Franklin is the other). The reverse of the bill features the US Treasury with a car parked out front resembling a Model-T. The series 1934 bill can be differentiated from future series by the blue numeral "10" on the left side of the obverse. Future series changed the numeral "10" to a gray color.
What is a Silver Certificate?
Silver Certificates were United States Currency authorized in the Act of Congress of February 28, 1878 and issued through 1964. Large size Silver Certificates were issued through 1923 and then the currency changed to the small or modern size we use today. Silver 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.
