1875 NBN Paris, IL Graded

I finally had it graded. I picked the note up for a very nice price ungraded. There are several notes that were preserved with about the same serial number range so the lack of extreme rarity makes these notes of less value. I have seen several of the CH# 1555 in $10 and $20 denominations sold at auction. They are always graded and always seem to be AU or Unc with the EPQ designation. So, as I have posted before, these type of notes are not graded for a reason and here is it this time. When I re

New Note for Collection

This Thomas Flynn Fr. 774 "battleship" note was sold for $6,037.50 in April of 2008. The same note sold for $4,312 in 2014. I just picked it up at auction for $3231.75. This is 46% reduction in 9 years. I wish there would be a really good article on how much the currency market has softened quite a bit. One vendor says the premium for low serial number specimens has dropped out the bottom. Interesting since there are Bison notes and other low serial number notes still going for several

Retouched

This is being offered at auction by Heritage in their Long Beach, 2017 September auction. I have heard "retouched" used in the context of "this note is to be avoided at all costs" to "I don't pay attention because the note appearance is all that matters." I lean more and more to the latter looking for bargains on notes that are not "NET" but some negative comment is on the back. I believe you can snatch some good bargains on notes with comments that are not "NET" A tear that you can't see on a s

Would you regrade this note to get the PMG score or leave it in a PCGS holder. Anyone see any NET problems? Thanks.

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.

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
