I add the final note in my set...
I added the 20th and final note for my fractional currency type set today, a second issue fifty cent note graded AU 58. It completes the type set, but I still have work to do. My goal is to have notes that graded in the 55-63 range, so I will continue to search for up-grades.
What a set of Notes!
I had the privilege of buying a few of the notes from the Thomas M. Flynn Collection that was recently auctioned off by Heritage. What a fantstic and almost complete set of all the Friedberg Large Notes! That was a once-in-a-lifetime collection that is now disbursed through numerous collectors. I am fortunate to be one of them. Prices for the rare notes were incredible and the total collection fetched perhaps a record.
THIS IS THE FIRST OF THE SHORT RUN NOTES ( 640,000 PRINTING ) NEW STYLE FIVE DOLLAR STAR NOTE series 2006.
This is the first consecutive pair of the new FIVE ($ 5.00) dollar star notes that I have found. They were removed from a shrink wrapped brick of new notes. I also obtained the sticker from the brick as well. They are from the SECOND PRINTING/RUN, serial numbers IA03200001* - IA03840000* . The First Run consisted of 3,200,000 STAR NOTES SERIAL NUMBERS IA00000001* - IA03200000* 1st Pri

Learning to make smart investment choices for my children.
My father collected some foreign coins when he was in the military. None were of value but the intresting pictures struck a fasination with coins. I was hooked. I began collecting other coins and was given a coin collection from my Mother; there were many dollar pieces, quarters, dimes, and pennies. I collected through the years and recently began making high investment purchases for my two children. Something I can pay $500 (example a
Let's hunt buffalo!
Finally I've found a note so I can start my Wild West Currency Edition Signature set. I've really thought my first additions to my signature set would be a Chief note and/or a Bison note. But I couldn't pass this one up.
The note is an Obsolete note from the Western Exchange Fire & Marine Insurance Co., from Omaha, Nebraska. It's a $3 note and has a red THREE overprint. The center vignette is a mounted Indian chasing a buffalo, and when I saw it on a Teletrade auction
This is a rare pair of Ten's, Only 128,000 printed!!!!
Got this pair out of a Bep Pack of notes. Fresh from the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, It is an extremely rare issue with a four thousand sheet printing. (4000 X 32 = 128,000 notes)
A pair, one is a REPEATER
From The First Run of 320,000 notes for the Richmond Federal Reserve. (See, I have other notes besides Cleveland) The first note is a repeater note, The other note is a two step ladder note, 0028 0029.
U.S. $2 paper money
I am interested in obtaining a complete type set of U.S. $2 currency. I would like to obtain as many XF and better notes as possible. I have all but 6 types in my collection, but need to upgrade most of them. If you have certified $2 U.S. paper currency, please contact me.
Check out this one year issue note.
I purchased this note Fr.40 $1 red seal legal tender about 2 years ago. It is housed in a PMG holder and graded Choice Crisp Uncirculated 63 with exceptional paper quality.
...7 gorgeous Mexican notes.
Well, I really shot my coin/currency budget on this haul. I couldn't pass these 7 notes up though, as they are so beautiful. And what's worse, I'm looking at another specimen note, and it's going to cost me as much as these 7 did. So now, I'm thinking, do I want to cull through my coins, keep my Wild West and other signature sets, my Franklins and my Morgans, then sell the rest so I can continue my currency habit, or do I collect both???
I know why I like currenc
Am I insane to do both coins & currency?...
I must admit, I'm glad our Collector's Society fee covers both coins & currency. I've been working on my coins so much lately, that I decided to get my currency caught up, and yes, to buy some more!!!
I originally started out with just United States currency, specifically Silver Certificates and Legal Tenders, mostly all small size. But I'm starting to like more things now, at the top of the list are the Deuces, and Mexican notes. So of cou
2003 Cleveland District with two leading zero's, one of which is a "bookend note".
I had a pair with four leading zero's, a pair with three leading zero's and thought that I would include a pair with two leading zero's. From the information that I have found, The first Cleveland run consisted of a run of 10,000 sheets of 32 notes per sheet, for a total of 320,000 notes. The production run was in October of 2004. This pair of star notes were taken out of a shrink-wrapped brick of notes from
Passed on from my Grandfather, out of his wallet and into my collection.
My grandfather carried this note in his wallet for a good many years(unfortunately) and the note shows it. The note was given to me by my Grandmother after he passed away. He obtained the note Mint fresh (CHCU) and counter-signed by Ivy Baker Priest above the printed signature on the note. Still, it is of great value to me. It is a cornerstone to my collection.
Rare and radar !!
Have had this note in my collection for some time now. Not only is it a rare issue, but a two digit (binary) RADAR note as well. Collecting consecutive pairs of Star Notes has become my true interest in the hobby, although a single star is a good thing.
At the age of 15 I started to collect....
At the age of 15 I started to collect and was pretty proud of my collection but after 4-5 years it got stolen and I lost my intrest:-(
Anyhow i?m now 52 years and regained my faith & intrest about 2 years ago.
Must say i?m adicted & use at least 4-5 houers daily looking for new coins & Coin lots to buy so my colection is definitly growing again.
I?w just joined here & am planing to start submitting coins for grading soon.
