Hey everyone? I've been having some difficulties exchange my old dollar bill. Can anyone please help me? They said it was old. But it is still im a good shape though.
On the plus side, the left signature of the Treasurer of the United States, William Alexander Julian matches the bill's date. The right signature of the Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau, Jr. also matches.
Based on pictures of other 1934 series $100 bills online, including from some dealers, there are some features which don't appear to match.
The text below Franklin's picture should say, "will pay to the bearer on demand."
The text on the upper left that starts, "This note is legal tender..." doesn't match what other bills have. The statement is much longer.
One site said to check for raised text on the bill. That's the only security feature at the time. They did state that the raised text could be worn off but then I would expect more general wear on the bill.
