  1.  The last update by the BEP was for the fiscal Month of September 2020, this cover the Western Currency Facilities cover the 2017A series of notes. The only One Dollar notes that were printed were series 2017A E/A and E/B printed at the Washington DC Facility and for Western Currency Facility were the 2017A L/C series of One Dollar notes. This may be last set of notes to be printed under the current Secretary of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States.

    With the election over and Joe Biden as newly elected President and with a new cabinet that will be names, we may see a new series of notes starting in mid-2021 with a new Secretary of the Treasury and a new Treasurer of United States. Also with the first woman Kamala Harris as VP, we may see a woman on the Twenty Dollars bill that was turn down by the other "GUY" in the White House, this would be a first and would be the right time.

    Trump Disses "Harriet Tubman" reworked of the Twenty Dollars bills. The existing Secretary of Treasury Steve T. Mnuchin is correct when he says the reason for the delaying the long-planned reworked of the twenty dollars bill, is that he's got his hands full at this time is fighting counterfeiting. "The New York Times" quoted senior Treasury officials as saying that Mnuchin was worried that Trump might cancel the Tubman bill altogether, so he opted to avoid the inevitable outcry by delaying the release of the bill from next year to 2022 or 2028. The release date was to be next year, on the 100th anniversary of the constitutional amendment that acknowledge a Woman's right to vote. The information above was in the LOS ANGELES TIMES EDITORIAL section on Friday May 24, 2019.  

      

     

  2. So, I knew going into this and in making my other post that the old Travellers checks are pretty out there and common and available...

    As long as you don't insist on them being uncanceled / unused... (Geeeze! That is a heck of a lot of money!)

    image.png.1b3b7773fb09544d5dc3c60755ba9c39.png

    But I'm finding that the Cargill Checks (P 13-14 and P 24-27), may just only be available much more rarely and at prices I am just 100% not willing to pay for them, short of me winning the Mega Millions.

    However, the more I look at them the more excited I get about the idea of buying and collecting some of the old fuel ration coupons from ~2005. And if PMG is willing to grade them I could see them either being included in my current "Gradually, Then Suddenly," and / or becoming the focus of a new Signature Set / Collection. These are very interesting to me as much as anything because you have the Reserve Bank issuing ration coupons and not the government or some other part of the executive branch. So I feel like that makes these very much adjacent to the Bearer Checks and Agro Checks as collectables.

  3. Since its founding in 2005, PMG has been committed to the principles of accuracy, consistency and integrity. We are grateful for all of the collectors and dealers who have entrusted their notes to PMG. Thank you!

    Almost impossible to find, this Compound Interest Treasury Note was a recent addition to my $10 large size type note collection.

    81% complete after this addition, acquiring the remaining notes is a difficult and expensive task. Low grade net notes are my best hope, and I recently acquired this note on eBay. For the grade, it looks really nice. What say you?

  11. It's now the end of March, one of the wackiest months in my life and probably yours and perhaps in history of the modern world.  Plagues have been with us since the beginning and I suppose this isn't gonna be the last one unless we all go down with it.  But, not here to discuss our future, but the present.  Seems as though everything except the graders have gone home, and I bet their number of coins and paper money has dropped quite a bit as only electronic trading is happening. All the venues I go to are shut down for the foreseeable future, and my website hasn't had a hit in 2 weeks.  I thought maybe with folks stuck inside, perhaps more would be looking at the site, www.exonumiaandmore.com but no such luck.  

    I'm working with a company who puts up sites, so I cannot edit it until they finish with their legal beagles and so on and so forth.  So,I thought I'd talk about what I am doing to keep me off the streets looking for paper money blowing in the wind.

    A while back, I bought a stash of uncertified notes, mostly $2 modern FRN's  If you care to go to my site, you can see a few, and also I put a few on eBay and will add more when Tomorrow comes.  I put so many up, I ran out of free postings, so I have to wait til tomorrow. See captbrian2.  Is it illegal here to putup my locations of info. Hope not.

    Anyway, these $2's are of many sorts.  Fancy serial #'s, error notes, and so on. One of them, I especially like (the blue book shows it at $700+-, and it is with 3 other notes.  What happens is, the third printing, (the serial # & seal) are submitting to gravity, then fighting it.  The 1st note is where it should be (the serial #) then the 2nd note has it dropping down a bit. and the 4th, it begins to defy gravity and starts self correcting back up to where it belongs.  I have never seen a set like this, and I have talked with others who have seen similar, but it is quite rare from what I can get from the paper money community.  Anyway, I will try to post the pictures. 

    I always have incredible trouble posting pictures on these journals, but I'll give 'er a spin.

    No luck with picture. I'm gonna publish this then try to add in pictures.

    New to collecting.

    I started about 2 years ago, focusing on the State of North Carolina's obsolete Confederate currencies. Looking to learn from more experienced collectors.
