Fr. 1609. 1935A $1 Experimental “R” Silver Certificate. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.

Two weeks after Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy during World War 2, the BEP conducted an experiment in the Chicago area by releasing a batch of Experimental Silver Certificates with different mixes of paper composition. Each note would have a large red letter to designate if it was on Regular or Special paper, with an R or S in the lower right corners of the notes. Collectors at the time removed many of these from circulation immediately, and today’s collectors are able to find many uncirculated examples, such as the beautiful example here, as well as the very next lot. The paper tests were inconclusive, likely as many notes simply didn’t circulate.
