    Fr. 1609 $1 1935A R Silver Certificate. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    Aside from the centering being slightly askew, this experimental example displays wonderful quality in its fresh paper and deeply inked surfaces. The "R" and "S" experimentals were released in the Chicago area on June 20, 1944, to study regular and special paper head to head, but the test was inconclusive. Both paper money collectors and the general public received the blame for removing the notes from circulation. Notes with the "R," such as this example, were composed of the regular paper variety while the "S" notes used the special paper.

    Estimate: $300 - $500.
