What is the current value of $1 bills from 1935 and 1957?

I have some old bills that I would like to sell and I'd like to know the value. 


We librarians who staff this service are not expert appraisers of currency and therefore we cannot provide you with a value. The Bureau of Engraving suggests "you contact dealers in old or rare currencies for an opinion." Value depends upon the rarity and condition of the currency, so the bills really need to be examined by a professional. 

If you would like to find out the possible value of your items before contacting a dealer, ask your local public library to see if you can borrow or use A guide book of United States paper money: complete source for history, grading, and values, 2020 edition by Arthur L. Friedberg, Ira S. Friedberg, David L. Ganz. Whitman Publishing LLC., Pelham, AL, 2020. If your library does not have a copy you may be able to request that they borrow it from another library, or ask another library to send you copies of the pages dealing with this currency. If you need to get the book from another library, give this number to the library, it will help them find that edition: OCLC Number 1196245617.
