I have a 1935 silver certificate series E it is a lot smaller than my 1935 series D silver certificate So I am assuming it is an experimental. I am wondering how much it is worth.

 @jeff Welcome to the forum!  I hope you enjoy the content here and stay active!  As others have stated, the note itself has been trimmed, which is a damaging alteration that renders the notes value down to face value - $1.  This isn't a rare or valuable note, to begin with, but if it was, having been trimmed would kill some to most of its numismatic value.

As a side note, the $1 Silver Certificate Experimental issues were done in the 1928A, 1928B, 1935 (plain) and 1935A series.  In the 1928A and 1928B series, the Experimental notes were printed in the lowest part of the XB, YB, & ZB blocks...00000001-10728000 on the XB block and 00000001-10248000 on the YB & ZB blocks. 

For the 1935 (plain) series, the Experimental notes were at the lowest part of the AB, BB, & CB blocks...00000001-06180000 on the AB block and 00000001-03300000 on the BB & CB blocks.  

For the 1935A series, the Experimental notes are far easier to identify as they had a red "R" or "S" overprinted on the front of the note and only within the upper half of the SC block.  The red "R" was overprinted on the regular distinctive paper and the red "S" was overprinted on a special paper.  Here are examples of each from the 1935A series.

To my knowledge, there were no other "Experimental" paper releases within the small size $1 Silver Certificates.  I hope this helps!

Enamored with VF-35 and lower grade PPQ/EPQ notes!

By the way, I don’t want to be a bad guy but ...   giving long answers to a single post “what is this not-worth-much-note worth?” to someone who doesn’t really intend to be a forum member .... well ....

(too bad they took away the down-vote button because I surely could have earned a few down-votes here)

YC...I was impressed by JDizzle's response to a new member. Not only is it possible that his welcoming, informative response will result in someone sticking around and delving more deeply into the hobby, but it is also likely that it will be informative for other members who have been around awhile. It's great to have the experimental data in one place.

I agree 100%………. I remember TennisCoach & gnat  taking the time to PM me with info & suggestions when I first joined this forum😀.   Everyone here was encouraging and supportive to my new found interest in the WW II issues.  Since I joined I have enjoyed building a decent although limited collection of these notes.   I stuck around and although I’m nowhere near the caliber of you guys I enjoy seeing everyone’s notes and I think as my budget allows I will branch out.
Tomx4 definitely makes a good case for fractional’s 😀.
You never know how you may influence a new member .

just me thinking out loud

I won't compare the Facebook groups to this forum but on Facebook, at least 90% of these "what's it worth" posts are from people who are only hoping they made some quick money.  They aren't interested in learning about the hobby and becoming a serious collector and fade away pretty quickly once they realize it isn't easy finding something that's valuable.   But of course you never know.  There are always exceptions.  I see the original poster hasn't posted any follow up questions which isn't a good sign.

I wonder how many members began collecting paper because they found something interesting and it sparked the beginnings of a rewarding hobby...again thumbs up @jdizzle for an informative supportive reply...doesn't matter if the poster is a one timer or a future collector.

As a collector that got inspired again by a few silver certificates and coins that my dad left me, money or worth was never a consideration. If you care about the value then the object is meaningless. I was proud to read the post jdizzle made but it was not worth the time. Based on % the op won’t be back. He/she has no interest in the history/story of the coin just it’s value. I may be wrong but I highly doubt it. When the question is what is this worth? Chances are you’ll never see that person again. Just my 2 cents.

Don't forget, there are plenty of other members, new or otherwise, who may benefit from these responses -- even if the original poster is a write-off.

Truer words...I think about this every time I post and especially when writing a new post for the Gallery section. The information may be something the veterans are already aware of, but there’s plenty of new members and readers that haven’t joined (yet) that benefit from the posts.

There was also an experimental run in 1935A

XB, YB, and ZB has printings between 576,000 and 720,000 depending on block.

These were produced in May of 1940. These blocks reappear in 1942 with darker ink on the back as normal notes.

I think two things can be true at the same. Most of the “what’s it worth?” questions are quite obnoxious, to be frank. Sometimes the questions are genuine. But too often they do not lead to anything constructive for the hobby.

That said all information is good...for someone...somewhere. Hey, it’s discouraging posting Bahamas stuff on this forum because most people here could care less but somebody might eventually find the information useful.

So I think it’s good to see information even if the person it was originally intended for does not read it.

Sticky a “What’s it Worth - NEWBIE’s Post here for info” thread on top of the forum with FAQ. People who are so inclined can help, and those who are so inclined can read it and complain about it. Maybe a sticky FAQ can have links, how to search eBay, examples of typical questions like “Is this orange seal $2 worth over a million dollars?” Etc.

Good idea Dan. Is there a Mod who wants to take this up?

Yeah the what's it worth should *probably* always be combined with an existing newbie WiW thread so it doesn't clutter the forum. The hope is, in maybe one percent of the cases, the curiosity that can be created by posting "that's worth face value, look for one of these {insert image of Buffalo note}" and hope someone gets the itch that way... you could also archive them by date, so start a new one every year (so it doesn't get too long a topic, but see now I am just rambling...)
