Shipping to other Collectors

You can mail notes USPS First Class mail or insured USPS Media Mail depending on the value of the notes. See the USPS Shipping Insurance and Delivery fee schedule for the latest prices.

Shipping notes worth less than $200 combined?

Uninsured media mail should be fine. Remember to save and monitor the package’s tracking code. Purchasing additional insurance will increase your cost and decrease the profit on your sale.

Shipping notes worth more than $200, less than $800?

Add insurance for extra peace of mind. Sign up for tracking notifications using your email address. If you’re shipping to a cautious customer, you may want to upgrade to Priority mail. Most small collections will fit in a standard USPS priority envelope.

Shipping notes worth more than $800?

Insurance is mandatory and it’s best to use Priority Mail, Overnight Express or USPS Registered Mail. This is especially true if your shipment exceeds $2,000 in value. This is just too much risk for most people. Monitor the shipment’s progress using USPS tracking notifications. For extra protection, request an adult signature upon delivery. Finally, call or email the other person to confirm safe receipt.

Shipping to Dealers or Auctions Houses

Auction houses and established currency dealers almost always have insurance on inbound packages.

That means you don’t have to insure the package yourself. Always ask first before mailing your notes. In most cases, they’ll request USPS Priority Mail or USPS Overnight Express with signature required. Insurance companies need to know that a package was reasonably protected, tracked and securely received before processing any damage or loss claims.

Value: 1933 $10 Silver Certificate value $5,000 or more in Extremely Fine condition.

1933 $10 Silver Certificate Valuation

Paper Money of the United States indicates the government issued 216,000 notes. It printed far fewer star notes. Each note has signatures of Julian-Woodin.

You’ll notice the inscription “Payable in silver coin to bearer on demand”. This is unique among small size $10 Silver Certificates. The government decreased Silver coinage production during the early 20th Century. As a result, Silver Certificate bearers could no longer be paid in silver coin.

The government passed new legislation in the early 1930s authorizing alternative redemption methods. Moreover, the BEP began removing outdated 1933 $10 Silver Certificates from circulation. Dwindling numbers made them an instant rarity.

Subsequently the Bureau of Engraving and Printing had to redesign the Silver Certificate.

The 1934 $10 Silver Certificate is different. First, it contains the inscription “In Silver Payable to the Bearer on Demand.” Second, the government printed them in massive quantities. Therefore, these notes are much less valuable. You can still find them in circulation.

The Bottom Line

Collectors consider the 1933 $10 Silver Certificate a modern day rarity. Some 80 examples are known to date.

A 1933 $10 Silver Certificate will value from $3,000 to $100,000 depending on its condition. There is just 1 star note known. It likely values over $100,000. By contrast, the best 1934 $10 Silver Certificates barely exceed $500.

Track and Price indicates 1 1865 $5 note and 3 1875 $1 notes.

Another 1865 $5 Deep River Note would be a great discovery.

The bank began operating on January 1, 1849, located on 151 Main Street, Deep River. First it was called the Deep River Bank and Trust Company. Later, it was given charter #1139 in 1865. Its official name was the Deep River National Bank of Deep River, Connecticut. Directors of the Deep River Savings Bank were also involved with the National Bank.

In 1899, R.P. Spencer was President, H.R. Wooster was Vice President and R.L. Selden, Jr. was cashier. These men may have autographed many notes. Locals will recognize the bank officer names. Descendants still live in the area. The Chester ferry bears the “Selden” family name. Also, the Seldens were a prominent Haddam name.

The bank ceased issuing currency in 1935. However, 1865 $5 Bill Deep River National Bank notes remained outstanding. People redeemed most notes. Others became souvenirs. This bank’s 70 year lifespan means its notes aren’t too rare. Nonetheless, notes in excellent shape from 1865-1882 command an above average appraisal.

Subsequently, the bank began commercial operation. It merged for the first time on November 11, 1974 becoming part of North Branford’s Community Banking Company. Ownership and operators changed many times afterwards. Eventually it became home to a Citizens Bank branch office. The building is different from its original structure. It was renovated many times since original construction. But the hometown service and friendly faces remain the same. And a short walk across the road leads to the historic Deep River Library.
