The One-dollar Prexie

Woodrow Wilson was the 28th President of the United States, and his portrait is on the one dollar value of the Prexie series. The likeness was taken from a medal produced by the U.S. Mint.

The one-dollar Prexie is the first of three that were produced in two colors. It was issued in sheet format only. The first day of issue was August 29, 1938, with a total of 309,426,788 issued through 1956.

There were no single rate uses for the dollar Prexie, but a number of multiple rate solo uses are known. Instead of reciting possibilities, I will make a list of the uses that I can illustrate.

Two times the fifty cents per half ounce airmail rate to the Philippine Islands.
