To use tab completion you need to escape some symbols that are used by the shell for other purposes.
dollar sign are some of them that needs a backslash escape so that the shell doesn't think you are trying to do something else. A different way to do it is to use single quote. That will escape everything except single quotes within.
If you have more than one match you just continue writing and pressing TAB until you have a unique match.
The alternatives are:
Here you cannot use $ in the file name since the shell will think it's a variable.
You need to backslash every char that needs to while you are finding a unique match. Eg. if it stops at
\(3311 you need to type
\)TAB to continue.
