1935 E one dollar silver certificate error

I recently found a 1935 E one dollar silver certificate in my change.

It's in great condition and seems to be a error bill.

If anyone could help me out with more information on it would be great

Here are a couple pics

    It’s cool to get a Silver Certificate in your change, congratulations.

    Forgive me, but I don’t see an error. I see a poorly centered note, but nothing that fails BEP specifications .

    I was not sure if the bill being off center was a error or not.

    I have noticed if u hold it up to the light the front and back print are not lined up. Not sure if that's a error or not?

    Would it be worth getting graded?

    Registration, or the alignment between the face and back printings, always varies from good to poor. Poor registration isn't an error, just poor printing.

    Unless you can bundle that note with others to reduce grading costs, having it graded isn't worth it.

    Being off centre actually devaluates the bill unless it is off enough where the next bill is partially showing. Then it would be classed an error.
    Certainly not worth spending the money on getting graded.

    If you spent $30 for grading and shipping, you might get $40 for it on ebay

    -There are plenty of Reddit users who will tell you that minor off-centred designs are "errors." They also tend to advise everyone to grade whatever note has been posted. Its nice these people are so passionate about banknotes but you have to take their "expertise" with a huge grain of salt. That, or turn to forums (like this one) where you'll get more realistic appraisals (& perhaps a bit tougher/no BS advice).

    @Jwilt2008, so in comparison, here are 2 1935 E silver certs similar to your note, which are off center and were graded. The solid serial numbers one wasn’t off enough to be designated as an error, but the other one was, with the BEP rejection sticker affixed to it. Even the last note wasn’t rejected by the BEP.

    @jfriedm56 those are 3 lovely examples (worthy of a 'drool icon' if there was one here)!
