1973 $1 One in a Million?

Post by jjanyday » Wed Apr 07, 2021 2:05 pm

Selling off dad's collection, I came across this oddity. A local dealer suggested it would fetch $300 at least, but I should get it certified.

Anybody have thoughts? What's it worth and where do I get it certified?

Cheers

:oops: :oops:

Is it what's call a butterfly banknote? This looks awesome if legit.

It’s a fantastic bill if authentic, listen to the dealer and get it certified.

They will grade it, plus it lets you show buyers that it’s the real deal, which grows your potential audience and that will command a higher premium.

Looks authentic nice find.
Somehow it got folded after the sheet was printed so there must be at least a couple more out there somewhere.

Depending on your location I would suggest getting it graded at BCS http://www.banknotecertification.com/ if you are looking to sell it I'd be interested please send me a PM
