I was doing an internet search trying to see what the differences were between the R and S 1935A $1 experimental issues, and I learned that special paper and finishes were issued in 1928 and 1935 as well, but were differentiated by serial number and not markings such as S/R.

1928:
Special paper: X 000 00001 B - X 107 28000 B
Special paper: Y 000 00001 B - Y 102 48000 B

1935:
Special finish: A 000 00001 B - A 061 80000 B
Special paper: B 000 00001 B - B 033 00000 B

To my surprise, one of my 1928 notes fell into the Y-B range. Sorry for the poor scan...not sure why the colors look so faded and lifeless.



I've never heard of people collecting the special paper notes from 1928 or 1935 (non R/S), but people collect Web notes, so maybe its a thing. Anyone know if these are particularly desirable?

I've collected them off and on over the years. They are not as popular as the 1935/R and S notes because they don't have the R and S red markings.

Interesting. Does anyone know what became of these experiments in terms of actual paper changes?

Can you notice the difference in paper/finish?

I have 6 1928 $1 silver certificates, one of which is the special paper note pictured. There are variations due to overall quality of the notes, but I would never have guessed that the paper is different. Looks exactly the same side by side. Below is a close up with my digital microscope of two notes side by side. One is just slightly dirtier than the other. Maybe not super useful since I had to edit it down to 300kb.

I guess we can say the testing was inconclusive
