The 1935-A $1 Silver Certificate printing is especially interesting because at times the BEP halted printing the standard blue seals and transitioned to others such as Experimentals, Hawaii and North African notes.
A fun challenge is to try and collect them all!

The S-C block was printed with quite a few varieties, specifically these ranges
S00000001C - S39996000C Blue Seal
S39996001C - S54996000C Hawaii brown Seal
S54996001C - S70884000C Blue Seal
S70884001C - S72068000C Experimental Red R
S72068001C - S73884000C Blue Seal
S73884001C - S75068000C Experimental Red S
S75068001C - S99999999C Blue Seal

    Very nice (both sets). I can see the appeal of the Hawaiian, S & R experimental notes.

    I wonder if any astute collectors have a matched pair of serial numbers on the 1935A $1 SC A-C block...now that would be cool.
