Hi..unless your silver certificates are star notes with a star in the beginning of the serial numbers or the 1957 having a BB block which is serial numbers starting and ending in "B" they are really common notes.In average circulated grades a value of $1.50-$1.60 is all a dealer will offer.
The $2 notes 1953,1953A and 1953B are common notes in circulated grades.They have a dealer offer price of $3.75-$4.05 range.
The 1963 and 1976 unless they are circulated with no folds they would be worth face value only.
If any of these notes have tears,holes or bad stains then they really wouldn't be worth much over face value.

I have a 1957 Silver certificate and it starts with a star in front of the serial number, do you have any idea what it is worth or if it is of real value?
