I have a $1 bill, Washington, DC. that measures 7.25" x 3" that states" This note is legal tender for one dollar. The serial # is in red #T27350258A, as is the seal, and dated "series of 1917". The back side has a blurb about counterfeiting and the punishment associated with such. It also states that the note was printed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Any idea what it's worth and some history?

Hi..what you have is called a United States Note also called a legal tender note.These legal tender notes were first issued in the civil war in 1862 and were printed upto 1969.It is the longest issued type of currency in the US history.This series 1917 was printed from 1917 until 1923 series came out.Now value depends on condition of your note.How many folds any tears or stains.Is the paper limp or crisp.All these factors effect value.If you had a near perfect note with no folds crsip paper it would have a value of $200.A few folds 2 or 3 a value of $75 and if it 4 or more folds and paper is somewhat on the limp side like average notes you see circulated a value of $55.These value asssumes no stains or tears in your note.These are retail values a dealer would buy your note at less so he can make a profit on the sell.
Hope this helped.
