    Fr. 1609 $1 1935A "R" Silver Certificate. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ
    Fr. 1610 $1 1935A "S" Silver Certificate. PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.

    PMG has graded only four examples higher of the "S" note and that being by a just single point. These highly desirable experimentals were originally released in the Chicago area during June 1944. The "R" notes are the regular paper notes and the "S" notes are the special paper notes. Some data was obtained as to the ratio of "R" to "S" notes returned as unfit for circulation, but the Treasury Department and the BEP were unable to fully analyze the results and the special paper idea was dropped. The blame for the failure of the government experiment fell upon the notes being too easy to recognize by collectors and the general public. (Total: 2 notes)
