From 1915 to 1934, the United States Treasury produced both the modern series of Federal Reserve Notes and a series of Federal Reserve Bank Notes. The two collections had distinctive designs separating the two visually and offered different legal backing. While Federal Reserve Notes were backed by all Federal Reserve Bank branches, Federal Reserve Bank Notes were backed only by the branch location that issued it. Today, 1918 $1 Flying Eagle Federal Reserve Bank Notes are available to you online in Very Fine condition at Silver.com.

Note Highlights:

  • Available to ship to you inside plastic currency sleeves!
  • First issue of the $1 Federal Reserve Bank Note!
  • Includes the popular effigy of President Washington!
  • The face value of $1 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • President George Washington is depicted on the obverse.
  • An American bald eagle clutches a flagpole with the American flag on it in the reverse design.
  • Very Fine condition.
  • Please keep in mind Federal Reserve Bank Notes were issued by individual Federal Reserve Banks, meaning the notes can have various branch banks noted on the obverse.

Federal Reserve Bank Notes debuted in 1915 with denominations of $5, $10, and $20. The original Federal Reserve Notes shared the same designs as the early Federal Reserve Bank Notes in these denominations, though the visuals would change across the two collections with time. In 1918, these $10 Flying Eagle Federal Reserve Bank Notes were issued along with $2 and $50 denominations. Known as the 1918 Series, these three new Federal Reserve Bank Notes were released in an emergency issue to replace Silver Certificates that had been temporarily halted due to the passage of the Pittman Act.

All of these 1918 $1 Flying Eagle Federal Reserve Bank Notes are available to you for purchase in Very Fine condition. A paper note in this condition has its original crispness with clear, untarnished visuals. The notes may, however, show folds, creases, and wrinkles from folding, but otherwise showcase very minimal levels of flaws and detractions.

President George Washington is depicted in the obverse design of 1918 Flying Eagle Federal Reserve Bank Notes. This portrait of Washington is set in an oval field to the left of the design element. The center of the design field includes a large inscription that reads, in part, “The Federal Reserve Bank of” … “Will Pay to the Bearer on Demand One Dollar.” As each Federal Reserve Bank Note was issued and backed by just one of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, a different bank name was featured in the middle between the aforementioned markings. Possible bank notations include New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Dallas.

An American bald eagle is found on the reverse of the 1918 $1 Federal Reserve Bank Note. Reminiscent of the 1899 Black Eagle Silver Certificate, the design shows an American bald eagle perched on a flagpole with the American flag as its spreads its wings wide.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
