    hi I was wondering if I could get an opinion I have a 1957 silver certificate that appears to never have been circulated has a star before the serial number is an A series and only flaw is that it appears that there is either an ink stain that is fairley small in the corner I'm not sure if its ink though but its on the outside border and I was wondering if you could determine the value
