This Is NOT a Counterfeit Bill | The Exchange – Yahoo! Finance.

In this age of debate about the value, or non-value, of the dollar, we’ve encountered a little something from the past that you probably don’t see every day unless you’re a currency collector — a 1935 series U.S. dollar silver certificate.

The phrase “In God We Trust” is absent. The 1935 series certificate was the last paper currency in the nation whose run began without the language — it had been used and dropped previously on certain American coins. However, it was added later in the series, which was printed for several years. The bill we’re showing here is the 1935F, without the wording, but it can be found on some subsequent G notes, first appearing in 1961, and on all of those in the H run, the last of the 1935s. (Other, newer bill series first carried the phrase in 1957.)
