A dollar bill from 1957 that has been used and has been in heavy circulation is usually worth face value at \$1 or just above face value. A dollar bill that has not been used and is in perfect, mint condition is worth \$15 as of June, 2014. The prices of the dollar bill are completely dependent on the condition they are in and whether they have a star serial number. Dollar bills with star serial numbers are generally worth about 1.5 times as much as dollar bills that do not contain a star serial number.

It is important to note that a person holding this bill may be able to get more for it if they sell it to a collector. A collector who is looking for a specific bill, like the 1957 one dollar bill, may be willing to pay more than it is worth to help complete a collection. Any person that receives a 1957 dollar bill that is in at least average condition should speak with local collectors to find out if there is any interest in the area for the dollar bill.
