Hey All,

I was hoping to add another piece of US history to my collection. How can I tell a President Kennedy issued 1963 United States Note?

I know Fed notes have the green seal, United States Notes have red but how can I tell the exact ones that were issued by the executive order 111110?

By the way this is my first post and I am glad I found this forum.

I think you are referring to a green seal 1963 note from the Dallas BEP.

I have never heard of anything like that. Maybe you could explain further.
There are no 1963 1$ notes that are red seal. Maybe you are mistaken?>

On June 4th, 1963 President Kennedy signed executive order 11110 which allowed the US government to make it's own money and bypass the Federal Reserve. The 4+ billion dollars of United States Notes (backed by US gold and silver) were put in to circulation in denominations of $2 and $5. The $10's and $20's were printed but never released as he was assassinated and the program was shut down.

I was hoping someone here could help me figure out how to correctly identify these specific US notes so I could acquire one.

okay I know what you mean know. Red seals $2.00 with the funny back (Monticello) reverse. They were called United States notes.

As far as your question goes I did not see any of that info in my book, so the best that icould tell you is the Red seal with United States Note plus the motto addede to the reverse

Thank you scoutjim99 for looking in to this! Was the example you posted only printed in 1963? The notes printed by the executive order 11110 were only printed in 1963. I have seen similar notes like you posted in the past but I have not been 100% sure they were the notes that I am looking for. I am hoping to find some definite description of these Kennedy issued notes.

The one I posted is from collection, and I have 1928 US Note, as well as 1953 and 1963, and that goes for the $5.00 as well. I hope this helps

This is the only note that I know of called a Kennedy note. that does not mean that I am correct and you are wrong. It is the only relevant answer that I know of.

The note I am posting is called,

1963 federal reserve note The alleged Kennedy Assassination note

Because it is dated 1963 and it is from Dallas with the number 11, however it is really a coincidence
but very curious

if I am reading this website http://www.john-f-kennedy.net/execu...der11110.htm correctly the notes you are asking about should say "silver certificate" on them since they were backed by silver just like the ones did back in the early days. Near the end of this long webpage it says he changed the backing of the $1 and $2 to gold instead of silver and it also states that the author has a $5 note that has the heading "United States Note" on it, so it should say one or the other I am assuming (I am not sure which because I have never seen one of these) but if it doesn't say either chances are its not currency made from this bill being signed

Ok I found one! here is a picture of a $2 note, if you look above Jefferson in this picture you will see the heading "United States Note" instead of "Federal Reserve Note"





Here is one on eBay right now http://cgi.ebay.com/1963-2-FR-1513-...VF_W0QQitemZ110175683468QQihZ001QQcategoryZ40033QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
and if you look there is actually quite a few on there for very little money. Here is two consecutive numbered United States Notes http://imagehost.vendio.com/bin/vie...e-53bb9&sp=1

Here is a $5 US Note





From the way it looks you would be hard pressed to find a 1963 series note that wasn't a "United States Note" because unlike coins notes don't change their dates every year, they only change the dates where there is a change in design so chances are if its a 1963 note red seal it is a US Note that was created because of this bill because I haven't seen a Federal Reserve Note with that date on eBay except for the $1 barr notes that are dated 1963 and they have the regular green seal.

there are no red seal 2$ bills or 5$ bills that say federal reserve note on them! Every red seal says USN

I thought that was what I said? I guess my early morning ramblings wasn't very understandable, what I meant is you can look for a red seal with the date 1963 and chances are it was made because of this bill being signed by JFK. Sorry for any confusion. All that being said I like this radar note

Thanks for looking in to this!!

I agree that this is the most likely case. I went to my local shop to get both the $2 and $5 notes BUT of course they were closed, lol. I will pick them up on Monday.

Thanks,

I also bought the $1 1963 K note as shown in scoutjim99's post. I noticed mine is signed by Henry H. Fowler and his is signed by C. Douglas Dillion. Does anyone know the significance of this?
