When it comes to super low print runs, 80 thousand gets my attention. I am aware that modern $1 run & block collectors are a small group, but to us, finding one like this is like finding the Holy Grail. Printed in early 2015, and coveted on eBay with ridiculous asking prices, it's good to already have one in Gem condition.

If you thought a 80K run was low then you're going to love this next one....32K printed. I read somewhere that the work order was misread and should have been a run of 320K.

These Boston replacement notes went unreported at the BEP. An estimated month/year is shown on the uspapermoney.info website I'm guessing from collectors reporting seeing them in circulation. I already have a lone example of this star note but couldn't pass on these. A member of a different forum posted them asking about their value and I PM'ed them letting them know I was interested. Great margins, deep embossing and that "new currency" smell.

Impressive notes, Steve. That New York star looks a tad overgraded, though - I've seen that kind of margin variance on the reverse of a PMG 66 note, but seldom on the front.

This came across the counter to me today at my local bank branch.

Most small-size collectors will have a $1 Silver Certificate Star note in their collection. Those just starting out will have a series 1957, 1957A or 1957B, which are easily available and affordable in uncirculated grades. This I consider "entry level" or the shallow end of the pool. I'm content knowing I'll probably never own a $1 1928C, 1928D or 1928E SC replacement note in uncirculated condition, and I'm OK with that. I'm not sure why I've waited so many years to finally find a 1935 $1 SC star, but I did. Do I wish it was GEM, maybe a little, but it is what it is.

Very nice replacement notes, everyone. That '09 B* is impressive, Steve!
