Why buy this 1957-B Sequential 1 Dollar Silver Certificate Set?
Prior to 1963, Dollar Silver Certificates, including these 1957-B certificates, were redeemable for their face value in silver. That stopped due to an Act of Congress in 1963. Accordingly, these certificates make excellent teaching tools for those explaining the history of American monetary policy. This set consists of five notes that bear sequential serial numbers, a key point of intrigue for many collectors.
Classic President Washington Design
At the center of the note's obverse is a famous portrait of America's first President, George Washington. He is flanked by a "1" and a blue Treasury Seal, which distinguished silver certificates from dollars that would be issued subsequently. The serial number is above the seal. Near the bottom of the note are a pair of signatures, those of the Treasurer of the United States, Kathryn O'Hay Granahan, and the Secretary of the Treasury, C. Douglas Dillon.
The national motto," IN GOD WE TRUST," joins the face value of the CERTIFICATE, "ONE," in the center. They are flanked by the two faces of the Great Seal of the United States. "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR" are at the top and bottom, respectively, while the word "ONE" is inscribed above the numeral "1" in each of the corners.
