>PETE<  I have a couple of old notes that I know aren't worth more than what they already say...  But I noticed a slight difference on one of 1934 $20. bills. They're all from Chi.Ill. but one of them has missing 'marks' in the boarder surrounding Jackson's massive hair. And that same bill has a different color green stamp on the front   ..and that same green tone is used on the entire backside..  What's the deal?

Hi..On the 1934 series the orginal seal color was a lime green color which was change in 1938 to a pale blue color.The series year on the notes was still 1934.This color was gradaual so several different intermediate hues were produce.So it's not unusual to see a color difference in seals or the back having a differnt tone for green for the 1934 series.In circulated grades dealers would sell this note in the $25-$35 range with the light seal color having a slight priemum to the dark color.
Now on the marks you refer to I'm not sure what that could be.If you can scan it and  send it to me maybe I can come up with an aswerer.Email scan to marlofan@aol.com.
