    "For Louis Howe"

    Henry Morgenthau, Jr.: United States One-Dollar Silver Certificate Signed "H Morgenthau".
    -Series of 1934, Serial Number A24377929A.
    -Inscribed to Louis Howe.
    -Excellent condition save for portions of mounting hinges at two corners.

    In 1934, a law was passed in Congress that changed the obligation on Silver Certificates and allowed the government to exchange silver bullion for the certificates, not just silver dollars. All previous series were phased out and replaced with the 1934 Series that introduced a small-size $5 Silver Certificate. This was also the year that Morgenthau became Secretary of the Treasury thus his engraved signature was on this series. This one was inscribed to Louis Howe, FDR's close friend and advisor. Unique.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
