From 1878 to 1927, US Silver Certificates and other forms of paper money available in the United States did not look like they do today when it comes to dimensions. These 1923 $1 Silver Certificates represent the last series redesign in the large-sized notes. These notes were affectionately known as “horse blankets” by Americans because it was joked that each one was so large it could cover a horse’s back.

President George Washington features on the obverse of 1923 $1 Silver Certificates. This effigy of Washington debuted on the 1923 Silver Certificate and would go on to feature on the 1928 Silver Certificate, the 1928 redesigned United States Note, and eventually the modern Federal Reserve Note.
Please note that US Silver Certificates have serial numbers and seals printed with either blue or red ink in the 1923 Series. Additionally, the signature combinations of the Register of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States vary throughout this series as individuals came and went from those posts within the federal government. If you buy multiple notes, you may receive matching signature combinations and ink colors on your Silver Certificates.
The nation of issue and denomination are found on the reverse side of 1923 $1 Silver Certificate Notes. While the obverse field is printed with blank ink on white fields, the reverse of the notes bears green ink throughout the field for its printed notations.
