Silver Certificalte Valuation
The Treasury Department printed 1957, 1957A and 1957B silver certificates. All three series are about equal in value. However, some are ordinary bills while others are star notes. The term "star note" refers to a silver certificate with a blue star preceding the serial number instead of a letter. Circulated 1957 silver certificate star notes in average shape are worth around $3. Uncirculated star notes may be worth up to $10. By contrast, ordinary 1957 silver certificates fetch about $1.25 to $1.50. Uncirculated bills are usually worth $2 to $4.
