Graded PMG 63 (Choice Uncirculated). Please see the images for more details on the condition of the bill. In response to American campaigns abroad, the U.S. Mint created the 1935 $1 North Africa Silver Certificate, which could be redeemed for silver bullion. The main distinguishing feature of the North Africa Silver Certificate is its seal, inked in bright gold rather than in the traditional blue. These bills were issued to those serving in the North African campaigns of World War II and could be swiftly demonetized if Americans were forced out of this land, rendering them useless. Silver certificates were issued between 1878 and 1964 in the United States as part of its circulation of paper currency. They were produced in response to silver agitation by citizens who were angered by the Fourth Coinage Act, which had effectively placed the United States on a gold standard. The certificates were initially redeemable for their face value of silver dollar coins and later in raw silver bullion. Since 1968 they have been redeemable only in Federal Reserve Notes and are thus obsolete, but still valid legal tender. Large-size silver certificates (1878 to 1923) were issued initially in denominations from $10 to $1,000 (in 1878 and 1880) and in 1886 the $1, $2, and $5 were authorized. In 1928, all United States bank notes were re-designed and the size reduced. The small-size silver certificate (1928–1964) was only issued in denominations of $1, $5, and $10.
