$1 Notes

The first $1 Federal Reserve Note, like the ones we use today, was issued in 1963. Prior to 1963, we primarily used Silver Certificates. Of all the notes printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the $1 note makes up 45% of the notes printed.

First and Last Issue of the Small Size $1 United States Note

Series 1928 $1 United States Note, "Funny Back", Woods - Woodin, Plate# A14/2432, S/N A00004627A, 1,872,012 printed

PCGS About New 53PPQ

The reverse of the note was so radically different from other notes that it earned the nickname "funny back". The Series 1928 United States Note was actually printed in April 1933. Only 5,000 were released to the public in the US. The rest were issued in Puerto Rico during 1948 and 1949. It is thought that all the 8,000 star notes in this series were released in Puerto Rico. The Currency Acts of July 10, 1862 and March 3, 1863, and May 31, 1878 (among other legislation) established a statutory limitation of $346,681,016 on the amount of United States Notes authorized to be outstanding and in circulation. Most of the United States Notes issued during the Series 1928 $1 United States Note were $2 and $5 denominations, so the $1 note was very short lived.

Notice the very low serial number — This may have been one of the 5,000 released in the US!

The 1928 $1 Silver Certificate is the first small-size Silver Certificate. Although designated Series 1928, the notes were actually printed in April 1933. The reverse of the note was so radically different from other notes that it earned the nickname "funny back". The "funny back" $1 Silver Certificate Note was printed until 1935.

The first major experimental group of small notes was printed in November 1932 and delivered to the Treasury for release into circulation in January and February of 1933, during the period of the $1 Series 1928 A and 1928 B. The experimental set was to determine the effect of changing the relative amounts of linen and cotton paper fibers. The XB and YB blocks were each printed on paper of different proportions of rag content with the ZB block as the control. The XB block, consisting of serial numbers X00000001B through X10728000B, was made up of 50% linen and 50% cotton. These serial numbers are well above the ranges used on any other notes from the 1928 A and B Series.

Experimental "R" Note — In 1942 during World War II the US Government was concerned about the supply of paper to print US notes. As a precautionary measure, Series 1935 A notes made of special "experimental" paper were printed with a red "S" to the lower right of the Treasury Seal. Notes with the regular paper were printed with a red "R". The notes were delivered on June 20, 1944. The trial did not provide any conclusive results.

From History-Bureau of Engraving and Printing 1862-1962
Early in 1944 experiments aimed at improving the quality of currency paper indicated that the addition of certain chemicals during its manufacture might prove advantageous. In order to evaluate the findings it would be necessary to produce a quantity of notes embodying these special chemical features; then to issue these notes together with a quantity printed on regular paper for comparison of the serviceability of each type under similar conditions. Notes printed on the special paper bore a small, capital "S" printed in red on face in the lower right corner adjacent to the Treasury seal. Those printed on regular paper were similarly identified with the letter "R". Although no publicity was given to the issuance of the test lots, the public at large apparently was quick to observe the special markings on the notes. Rather than spend the bills and keep them in circulation, John Q. Citizen evidently decided to retain those notes that came his way as curios.

During the early part of WWII, the US had fears that Japan would overrun Hawaii. If this occurred, large sums of currency could be captured and used to fund their war effort. So, the US decided to issue the same $1 Silver Certificates, $5, $10 and $20 Federal Reserve Notes as used on the mainland, but with a brown seal and serial numbers and overprinted with the word "HAWAII" twice on the front and in large block letters on the back. Because these notes were distinctive, it would make it easy for the US to demonitize the notes if large amounts fell to the enemy. Later in the war, these notes were used in the US held Pacific Islands for the same reasons.

During World War II, emergency US Silver Certificates were issued for use by U.S. troops in North Africa and Sicily. But instead of the usual blue seal on regular Silver Certificates, these special "North Africa" notes were printed with unique yellow seals. Had they fallen into German hands, they would have been demonetized and made worthless. Most of these scarce and fascinating notes were worn out or destroyed over 60 years ago.

Excellent information from USPaperMoney.Info

In 1955, Congress ordered the motto "In God We Trust", which had long appeared on U.S. coins, to be added to all of the paper currency designs as well. At the time, the BEP was planning yet another upgrade of its presses, this time to models that could handle even larger sheets of 36 notes each. It was decided, therefore, that the new motto would be added to the back design of each denomination as the new 32-subject printing plates were adopted.

Once again, it was the $1 SC that was first to get the makeover. The new notes, dated Series 1957, had face designs basically unchanged from those of the 1935 series, but had "In God We Trust" added to the back just above the large "ONE". Since the $1 denomination made up the bulk of the BEP's production, and since the new 32-subject presses replaced the old 18-subject ones gradually over a period of years, there was an extended interval during which the 1935 and 1957 series $1 SCs were both in production. In particular, Series 1935F through 1935H all actually began printing after the Series 1957 notes were already in circulation. Therefore, the BEP finally added the "In God We Trust" to some of the 18-subject back plates as well, so that part of Series 1935G and all of Series 1935H were printed with the motto.

(Actually, there were also many very minor differences between the 1935 and 1957 $1 designs. The new 32-subject presses differed from the older 18-subject presses in one important respect: They were designed to print on dry paper, rather than the dampened sheets required by the BEP's older equipment. The wet-printed notes had always shrunk slightly as they dried after printing, so in order to create notes of the same size using the dry-printing process, the master design engraving had to be made slightly smaller. Evidence of this can be seen at several places in the 1957-series designs, perhaps most prominently in Washington's portrait, where considerably less of his ruffled collar is visible within the oval frame.)

By 1963, the BEP finally had enough new presses in operation to produce all $1 notes, and so other denominations also began to be printed from larger plates with "In God We Trust" added.

Series 1969 $1 Federal Reserve Note, Chicago, Elston - Kennedy, Plate# E149/1246, S/N G34496114C

From United States Paper Money Errors: A Comprehensive Catalog & Price Guide by Dr. Frederick J. Bart:

The end of roll error originates from markings or splices created by Crane and Co. This firm supplies the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) with currency stock. Markings take various forms. Until recently, an impregnated red or purple diagonal line indicated the end of the roll. Since the series of 1990, a matte green indicator strip forewarns the press operator. When the matte green marked paper is accidentally utilized for currency production, the marking appears vertically at one end correlating with a faulty alignment on the opposite side.

She married Walter Kabis in 1970 and changed her name to Dorothy Andrews Elston Kabis.

Board Break Error from United States Paper Money Errors, 3rd Edition, by Dr. Federick J. Bart

The designation "board break" refers to the error resulting from a partially broken impression cylinder. An impression cylinder forces the unprinted currency into the intaglio recesses of the printing plate. The impression cylinder, or rigging, carries a wooden external wrapper, rigid enough to ideally sustain the workload yet pliable enough to squeeze the currency sheet into the plate.

The plate cylinder contains two or four thirty-two subject engraved printing plates. During the production of United States paper money, the currency sheet passes between the plate cylinder and the impression cylinder under 40 to 80 tons of pressure. Because the impression cylinder must endure such extreme pressure, areas occasionally become fatigued. The end result of such fatigue is failure as segments either compress into the cylinder or fall away. The disruption in the continuity of the impression cylinder yields an area incapable of pushing the currency paper into the incuse design on the plate cylinder. This produces a white unprinted area on the finished piece of paper money that correlates directly to the portion of the plate cylinder opposite the broken segment of the impression cylinder. Consequently, every note printed using the imperfect impression cylinder will exhibit the identical error—matching in size, shape, and location—unless the defect expands and/or until the rigging is replaced.

First Series to be printed on the experimental Web Press at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC.

Catalina Vásquez Villalpando, the 39th Treasurer of the United States, has the distinction of being the only Treasurer ever sent to prison. She received a four month prison sentence, probation, a fine, and community service for conspiring to withhold information from the federal government and the United States Senate. She pleaded guilty to obstruction and tax evasion and assisted the government in its further investigation of corruption related to her case in return for the light sentence.

She resigned on 19 March 1993, and the post of the Treasurer of the United States became vacant for almost one year. As a consequence, Series 1988 A proved to be a very extended issue.

Error Note — Complete Face-to-Back (F2B) Offset

Series 1995 $1 Federal Reserve Note, Cleveland, Withrow - Rubin, Plate# C96/212, S/N D35604219C

Normally a sheet is fed into the printing press and is physically pressed by an impression cylinder into the inked printing plate to produce the intaglio print. If there is some type of misfead of the sheet, then the inked plates make direct contact with the impression cylinder and the inked impression of the plate sticks to the impression cylinder. The next sheet fed into the press receives the expected printed image, but the inked image on the impression cylinder is also printed on the opposite side of the sheet. The first few sheets have sharp images and each subsequent sheet eventually removes all the transfer ink on the impression cylinder.

This note is a complete Face-to-Back, commonly abbreviated as "F2B" Offset (or Transfer) Error. The back of the note is printed first. When the face of the note was printed, the offset error occurred.

Star Notes were first used in 1910. They were produced in all demoninations with the sole intent of replacing notes that are removed from regular production for a variety of reasons: research, testing or because of damage. A star note has the security features of other notes. A star note is distinguishable by a star in lieu of a suffix letter at the end of its serial number.

Prior to the use of star notes, notes were replaced with exact duplicates bearing identical serial numbers. However, as production requirements increased, a more expeditious way of replacing notes became needed. Thus, star notes use began to expedite the replacement process and maintain production schedules.
