1957 $1 silver cert.

I know these are common. I do have a $100 stack. Missing 2 bills to have it fully consecutive. They are nice straight and crisp. They are a little off center. Would it be worth grading them all and having a large run?

    This is strictly my opinion. I have a personal threshold of value for notes submitted for grading and these do not meet that threshold. And, I have a feeling you may not like the grades assigned. I have several packs of replacement notes and keep them in Capital Plastics holders to keep the edges and corners from getting roughed up.

    I don’t disagree with you. I am not into currency. Just happened into these and don’t really know what to do with them. I’ll likely just keep them in the drawer for a few decades.

    -I agree & continue to debate my own thresholds. Just to be clear, I have 2 thresholds: minimum grade (typically original UNC) & a minimum market value (or what I think the note is worth). The only thing going for having these graded is you'd get a discount since they're consecutive (at least from PMG, I believe) but its got to be a bulk submission.

    I see this question (should I get it graded) all the time & I even have a stack of less common notes than than the OP which I'm still undecided whether to submit (& question myself whether they pass the market value thresholds).

    There's this unfounded myth out there that consecutive serial numbers are somehow 'special.' I'm not sure where it came from but it is totally baseless assumption. All banknotes (except Euros & a few nations) are issued consecutively. The only exception to this rule is older truly tough series (or special # & errors). It may have came about when early paper money collectors assumed consecutive meant UNC (but we all know that's not true either).
