In 1878, the Silver Certificate was introduced by the United States Treasury following popular displeasure among Americans with the fallout of the Fourth Coinage Act in 1873. Silver Certificates were redeemable for a long time for their face value in silver dollars, while the final year offered raw silver bullion at the time of redemption. Right now, you can buy 1928-1928B $1 Silver Certificates in Fine condition online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of these 1928-1928B $1 Silver Certificates at Provident Metals, you will receive a paper note in Fine condition. Notes in this condition can have a variety of obvious signs of wear and tear, as well as some of the original beauty and condition as when first printed and released. The notes have some of the original crispness with no major stains or tears present. You may notice a range of minor flaws that include possible pinholes, minor edge splits, and frayed or rounded edges. Notes in fine and fine-plus condition may have some minor differences in visible brilliance, but when taking a closer look, the notes possess many of the same defects and signs of wear and tear common on circulated notes. The Silver Certificates offered here come with a protective plastic currency sleeve.
President George Washington features on the obverse side of all 1928 $1 Silver Certificates. This three-quarter portrait is now common to the Federal Reserve Note and features the former president in the center of the design field. The notes throughout the 1928 Series all have blue ink on the two markings of the serial number and US Treasury seal. Other notations include Silver Certificate, This Certifies That There Has Been Deposited In The Treasury Of The United States of America, and One Silver Dollar Payable To The Bearer On Demand.
In the reverse design element of 1928-1928B $1 Silver Certificates, you will find simple, yet elegant border designs identifying the nation of issue and face value. The face value of the certificate is noted several times, most prominently across the center as ONE and ONE DOLLAR. The four corners have a 1, while the sides of the central design read ONE 1.
The 1928 Series of $1 Silver Certificates included six versions of the note for circulation. No major design changes occurred across these six releases, known as the 1928, 1928A, 1928B, 1928C, 1928D, and 1928E. All six have blue ink on the serial numbers and US Treasury seals. The differences arise in the signatures of the Treasurer of the United States and Secretary of the Treasury. The 1928 Series is signed by Treasurer Harold Theodore Tate and Secretary Andrew William Mellon. 1928A Series notes are signed by Treasurer Walter Orr Woods and again by Mellon. 1928B Series notes are signed again by Woods and by Secretary Ogden Livingston Mills.
