I came across a $10.00 bill when I was cleaning out some things and it doesn't have "In God We Trust" on it anywhere. Can anyone tell me anything about this bill?

to CCF curious,
We need to know if it's a A,B,C,D,or E.Also if you could scan a photo of it and post it that would be great.I suggest you use Photobucket to upload the photo.

P.S. You will find the letter under the date,also is it a star note?
What is the serial number?
( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )

Thank you for taking an interest in my post.

It is not a star note.

The serial number is G52054858A

In the upper left corner is the letter D.

In the lower right corner is the letter D and the number 71.

I scanned the bill but the add image icon keeps coming up with the error that I need to be logged in to use that feature. I will keep trying to display the images as they clearly show the details of the bill and I had been looking it over with a magnifying glass.

Nope, what John means is that if the note is 1950, 1950A, 1950B, 1950C, etc etc

It's a 1950A Priest-Humphrey D Cleveland Reserve Bank
I would guess mine is probably worth $11.00 to $15.00 because of the condition. But fun to get money looking like this anymore.

I don't know anything about the art of collecting money, sorry to be so dumb.

There is no letter by the date all it says is 1950 Series. I went over it very carefully.

Do we know why the "In God We Trust" is not on the bill?

In 1956, the Cold War was in full swing, and the anti-Communist suspicion of the McCarthy era was at its peak. Partly in reaction to Communism (which was commonly associated with atheism despite being merely devoid of an official religion), the 84th Congress passed a joint resolution to replace the existing motto with "In God we Trust." According to United States Code, Title 36, Section 302, the new motto officially displaced the original 180 year-old national motto "E Pluribus Unum" (Out of Many, One) when President Eisenhower signed the resolution into law on 30 July 1956. There was no law before 1956, and your note was printed in 1950, so that is why it dosn't have "in god we trust"!

For more information about it, check out this page!

I hope that was what you were looking for!

Good morning everyone.

Were you all able to read Dillon's explanation re:no "In God We Trust" on my bill? When put in the historical context, then I understand what has happened. I think I will keep the bill with the other keepsakes that belong to the owner I was going through things for.

Eventually I will be posting questions on the coins that were with the bill, so I may be talking to you again.

I'm not at my own computer at the present but will try and post the images of the bill later, just so that those who are interested can see.
