Looks like an interesting piece of folk art, maybe done in the 1930s or 1940s given it's a series 1928 (most of these with the gold clause were withdrawn in the 1930s, though were still legal to own and spend unlike actual gold certificates). The most obvious error is the four "7"s on the front should be "8"s for the St. Louis Fed.

the box is 95mm x 82mm and is spring loaded opening.. i was thinking of cleaning it .. do you think this would damage the box? .. as i am a "coin" man i may let it go at some point.. and i will keep you in mind if you would like first refusal (thumbs u

is it steel or silver? I dont think cleaning it would damage it all that much. , The type i was refering to was made of steel i wouldnt use anything abrasive on it but sure give it a shot. could only help the apperance of it

I've seen them before, My understanding is that they were made in Hong Kong.

 

Another error I spotted was that it is a FEDFRAL RESERVE NOTE from THE UNITED STATES OF AMRICA.
