... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor^) One of the most frequent questions I answer at shows pertains to dollar bills without the motto In God We Trust on the reverse. I have noted this before, but will repeat, since there Is some confusion on the point. No bills have as yet been reported Without the motto, which were not Intended to be printed that way. Only series' 1935G exists, both With and without the motto. The 1935 series was printed by the so-called wet process and they continued to use the old reverses after the 1957 series was printed with the motto. Later they added (he motto to the 1935's. But this was toward the end of the series, so actually , the Issue witty-the motto is scarcer than the one without. Neither Is particularly scarce, altho most have no doubt been placed in circulation by the banks, so finding an uncirculated specimen would be difficult. Adequate supplies exist, however, in the hands of collectors and dealers. Silver certificates are no longer being printed, but the banks will place in circulation those that they now have in stock. The 1935H Is the only elusive series of the last few years. Many are now collecting the dollar series and some fairly presentable specimens of older Issues can still be found in circulation. The scarcity rating runs as follows: 1928E, 1928C, 1928D, the 1928 red seal U. S. Note, 1935A with the red R for regular paper, 1935A with the red S for specimen paper, 1928,1934, 1935A and 1935A with the yellow seal for the North African invasion. These are the top 7, prices are generally quoted for uncirculated and some dealers will price according to the « 1 PREPARE NOW FOR THE HOLIDAYS with this SENSATIONAL BUY!

Many of our early bills were rather poorly cut and this does detract from the attractiveness of the note. Numbering errors appeared In the 1957 and 1657B series. These may receive a catalog listing In the future. If so, the 3747 error on the 19B7B and the 55-54 error on the 1957 would rank price wise after 1B28D. In case you are wondering, the top valued 1928E is priced at from $275 to $300. A leading dealer in Omaha offers $230 for same. Established currency dealers likely would not be interested In anything after 1935D except for the errors. The 1934 Is a good Item, as it was . the only one designed with a blue number one at the left. Collectors of design types need this one Issue. The series designation is changed whenever there Is a change In design or in the holders of the offices of Treasurer of the United States or Secretary of the Treasury. If the design Is changed, they usually change the series number to indicate the year of change. If the office holder changes, then they add a letter to the original series. 1935G then Indicates an uninterrupted design with seven changes in office. The exception to this would be the 1935G with the added motto, -o- A letter from Dave Shumway contains a report from London, of a collection of autographs of every American President which sold to a dealer for $1,540. It wasn't stated whether the signatures were on letters and documents signed while they were actually in the White House. I would think that such.a collection would now be rather difficult to assemble, since so much of this material would be in collector's hands. If signatures ; t while in the White House were : the objective, the main block would be William Henry Harrison, who lived only a month or so after delivering the longest Inaugural speech on record In the rain. He caught pneumonia. For that, the speech ought to be memorable, but apparently it wasn't. I see little alternative In this field other than dealer contacts. A section of Hobbies magazine is devoted to this field. Remember to beware of the old land grants, which are often offered to supply the Presidential hand.

I think that these should be bought only from a recognized autograph dealer. The average antique dealer who handles old documents on the side is of doubtful qualification, -o- A rather peculiar ad appeared in Coin World. A dealer offered to pay $17 for a $2 1/2 Indian head gold piece with a selling price of $22.50. His offer for a $5 Liberty head Is $18, yet he sells for $21. Seems odd to offer less for the more expensive coin. The only explanation I can see is a faster turnover on the $5 piece. The dealer margin on gold is less than on most coins and the market has dropped quite a bit from the gold speculation days a year or so ago.
