There were two different types of $10 bill issued with that date, blue-seal silver certificates and green-seal federal reserve notes. Retail values as of 07/2010:
Blue-seal Silver certificates:
1934 $13.-$25 depending on wear; $75 or more uncirculated.
1934A $13.-$30; $125 unc.
1934B $50.-$300; $2000 unc
1934C,D $20.-$60; $100 unc.
Green-seal Federal Reserve Notes:
1934 - all series letters $12.-$20 circulated; $35 unc.
Certain special bills printed during WWII can be much more valuable. These had yellow seals for use by troops in North Africa, or brown seals for use in Hawaii.
It's normally not necessary to provide a bill's serial number. Serial numbers are counters and a security feature but rarely affect a bill's value. Some collectors will pay extra for numbers with a special pattern, e.g. 12345678, or low numbers such as 00000015.
