They also printed 10's until the early 60's ... the old fashioned larger size (pre-1929) all the way up to 1000's ... read "....One Thousand Silver Dollars Payable to Bearer on Demand"

The Series 1928 through 1928E and Series 1934 had what is commonly called "funnyback" due to the design much different from today. The Series 1935 through 1935H were wet printed with 35H ending in the 1960's. Series 1957 through 1957B were dry intaglio print and discontinued more or less when the first series of Federal Reserve Notes Series 1963 began. No redemption in silver after 1968.  Most expensive single series is 1928E. Special notes printed for World War 2 are Yellow seal for North Africa and Brown seal with overprint for Hawaii. These were issued so that they could be quickly recognized and demonitized were these theaters to be captured by the enemy...

It depends on its date, series letter, and condition. A 1957, 57-A, or 57-B bill is so common that you'd be lucky to get more than 25¢ or 50¢ extra if you sold it to a dealer. Nor can you redeem them for silver. The government discontinued that practice about 50 years ago when the price of silver was deregulated.
