This bill is very well done on the front I must say.

Interesting! I wonder how many times it worked as a 10-spot.

Appears to me to be of minimal collectable value ... unless one of you experts know something I can't see.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

To explain further, there were no $10 silver certificates printed for Series 1923 only $1's and $5's.

This note started life as a Series 1923 $1 silver certificate before someone altered the note into a $10. I'd speculate that it was done sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s when times were hard and money was scarce.

They did a better job on the front, as the back is pretty poorly done.

I was looking at 1923 10s since I have always wanted a poker chip and just happened across this.

That is very cool. Anyone know how was it done? I can't figure it out (the reverse is pretty obvious, though).
