    Hi, navyflyer91!

    Flying Blue Eagle is an Expert on this site who has the current documentation concerning the possible monetary value of such things. As such, I'm sure that he will be along eventually to address your post.

    In the meantime, and as per Flying Blue Eagle's request, it would be helpful if you would post the following information concerning the currency that you have. I know that you've already provided some of the information that is asked for in the quote that is below when posting your question.

    Quote:

    #1 - The denomination of the currency, such as $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, $10.00, etc.
    #2 - Series date - Examples: 1935, 1935A,1935B, etc.
    #3 - Signatures - Examples: Priest - Anderson or others.
    #4 - Color of seal and color of serial numbers. Is there a star before or after the serial number? If so, what color?
    #5 - What is written above on the very top of the currency? Examples: SILVER CERTIFICATE, Federal reserve note, treasury or coin note. Legal tender note, etc.
    It sounds like what you have might be like that as described below. The information is from the following site.

    1.9) How do you grade the condition of paper money?

    Crisp Uncirculated, UNC or CU: This means absolutely not the
    slightest sign of any handling or wear or folding or *anything*.
    Some people use additional grades to distinguish qualities such
    as perfect centering or other printing characteristics. Certainly
    a note which has centering problems which are visible from a
    distance of 1 meter (3 feet) should have this mentioned in the
    condition description.

    Would what you have fit that description?

    Thanks!

    FBE, loved the jokes... hope my wife does as well.

    As for the 15 consecutive notes they are 1957 $1.00 notes VERY CRISP, Priest/Anderson, BLUE seal, have a blue star BEFORE the serial numbers, and say SILVER CERTIFICATE on the top. They look on center, but I am not sure how to gauge this and what should be considered center

    I also have a 1935 $1.00 bill in circulated condition but good shape, with a blue seal, no star, silver certificate on top.

    Hey, that's okay! You're welcome and my pleasure!

    Flying Blue Eagle has been pretty active here at least the past couple of days. So, hopefully, he'll be on sometime soon! Sometimes his health plays tricks on him though where he'll be unable to be on here for a number of days.

    Thanks!

    It could be that you haven't made enough posts yet to start doing that. Just my guess...

    The people that are the main ones who run the site have been making some big changes here over the past many months. Also, there has been a big problem with people that have been new, with maybe even one post to their name, who have rated very negatively and/or inappropriately and then we never see them again.

    I was a victim of that several weeks ago. The poster started a thread that was bogus and a bait for someone to answer so that they could rate them negatively.

    Thanks!

    Hi again, navyflyer91!

    Thanks for the positive rating! I know plenty of places online where you might be able to list what you have for sale. I'm sure that Flying Blue Eagle can give you some ideas about possible other places.

    eBay costs money to use. If you are interested in the other places online where you might list them without having to pay anything, please let me know.

    Thanks!
