Reverse of $50 Fr-1197- My Scan

Reverse of $50 Fr-1197- My Scan

This is my scan of a note I purchased. The seller tinted the scan with more orange to make the note more presentable. Be careful when you buy gold certificates and be sure to ask. Is this the original scan or di you colorize it? I think my scan is nicer! My scan of the reverse of Fr-1197 $50 Gold Certificate. Next post is the sellers scan.

Inherited from Grandfather in 1972

Inherited from Grandfather in 1972

Sat in a drawer for 40 years Our grandfather saved a few bills from when he first immigrated to the US in 1917. I decided to have them graded and although worth very little, they are priceless to me. Sweet man thought he was passing down valuable currency! To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

What notes are the best investment? One might say any note you can buy low and sell high! Since this Journal is useless in that I am talking to myself (no one ever replies) here is my take. GO to Track and Price. It is surprising some notes perceived as rare, BILLIONS were printed. Small silver certificates after 1934 are just about all worth a few dollars. Some make money by selling hundreds of these graded at 65 or 66's bought for 20 bucks ans selling for 50 to 100. Even the star notes are w

GOLD CERTIFICATES Everyone should have some gold coins, but gold certificates are really good investments. Don't buy . Try to score at least a 30 and preferably better in PPQ or EPQ. I look at the 1922 and 1913 large size $50 Grants. With the exception of Fr-1200, these are incredibly low populations! And finding these $50's in better than PCGS, PMG 50 is really difficult (unless the 1922 Fr-1200) So buying a quality 30 or above with no NET or Apparent and especially if you can get EPQ/PPQ, I

Fr-1197, a note from 1882. Look at the beaut of the reverse. They don't make notes like this anymore. Reverse of a gold certificate with good eye appeal = good investment. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

Another reverse beauty

Another reverse beauty

The Hillegas $10 is numbered in the 1000's but they are reasonable prices for high quality. Get this for the same price someone is selling a 2009 $10 bill with a 2 digit serial number.
