Cool 100th Anniversary of $10,000 Gold Certificate

Cool 100th Anniversary of $10,000 Gold Certificate

A very happy birthday to my Fr. 1225h graded PMG 25VF. It's date is February 20, 1917 so Monday (tomorrow) February 20, 2017 this note will be a century old. Nice! Tomorrow, February 20, 2017, this fine old $10,000 gold certificate turns 100 years old. Note the date on the note is February 20, 1917. Most were destroyed, with the exception of a number of 1900 $10,000 bills that were in a box in a post office near the U.S. Treasury in Washington, D.C. There was a fire on 13 December 1935, and

Even at Heritage the Scans are ALTERED - Part 2

Now my scan Heritage says, "The margins are outstandingly large for this type, and the gold inks are as deeply colorful as we have ever seen them. PMG likely saw some very minor flaw with the note out of the holder, but in the holder its obvious original embossing along with its other attributes makes it look like a 65 EPQ to us. From The Yuri Solovey Collection" Now look at their scan compared to mine once I received the note. When will this monkey business stop!!?? I expect it from Ebay

Top 3% of all Fr. 39's graded

Top 3% of all Fr. 39's graded

Almost 2000 have been graded by PMG of this common note. This 66EPQ is in the top 3% graded with only 6 notes graded at 67EPQ. The Fr. 39 is a very common note. But this one has such perfect centering, embossing punched all the way through the note and a note that is so bright, the note looks like it just came off the printing press.

My Favorite Note

My Favorite Note

The best grades are not always the greatest eye appeal. My $20 large note gold certificate collection is almost complete, only lacking the Fr-1179. As you may know the Fr-1179 and 1180 are the technicolors so you will forgive me if I only have one of the two in my collection? This reverse is my most wonderful. I love it dearly.

Another Grading Company Comparison

Another Grading Company Comparison

Educating all on the difference between CGA and PMG As the esteemed Matarcat says, treat CGA as ungraded when purchasing.Note, the even though PMG did not assign it "NET" another surprise was the note had been "Retouched", impossible for most to realize before sending in for grading.

Bet I cannot buy just one!

New Note Notifications for the Novice Well I have just entered the exciting world of collecting notes, currency, or paper money as it is called in the trade. I recently purchased 89 notes graded by CGA the olde, and as we all know that holder is not from the promised land, but a grader which fell into the lower regions for various reasons. I got two books on paper money; my favorite so far is the Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money. My send favorite is Paper Money of the United State

Proof ALL Grading Companies are the Same

Proof ALL Grading Companies are the Same

It really doesn't matter what grading company one uses. The standards are so well-defined and tight now that the value of a note has almost no wiggle room. As you can see here, I wanted a reputable company to grade a note. Of course, it was a waste of money since the note graded the same thus the value remained the same. Anyone note any sarcasm? That's because there is plenty!! I knew the note would not grade as well. I thought perhaps a 58EPQ would be the lowest but more likely a 62EPQ. Holy

Art Project of Large Note $20 Gold Certificate

Paint and crop is quite entertaining with scanned notes I couldn't help myself. My $20 Gold Large Note collection is nearing completion. I only need an Fr-1181, 1182 and 1183. I have the technicolor Fr-1180. I need the Fr-1179, the other technicolor note to truly complete the collection but that probably won't happen for a long, long time. I hopefully have a trade in the works to get the 1181, 82 and 83. I thought I would choose 6 of the reverses and do another collage. I will do another with
