Old $1 silver certificate bill with Matha Washington's face on it from 1891

Description: One dollar silver certificates from 1891 were the second $1 silver certificates printed by the United States. 1891 was the last United States bank note to feature a famous woman as a portrait on the bill.

This bill looks almost identical to the earlier dated 1886 $1 silver certificate; we wrote a price guide you can see if you want more information. We would love to see what you have, please contact us by email or phone today.

The 1891 $1 silver certificates have Martha Washington on the left-hand side of the bill.

As seen below, these bills have blue serial number ink and a red seal on the right side of the note. 1891 Martha notes only have two signature combination varieties: Tillman and Morgan or Rosecrans and Nebeker.
