  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.

    image.png.675c2b4be772b0cf9f100afcbc6147b9.png

    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?

  9. 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.

  15. Be patient, grasshoppa.....be patient grasshoppa.....

    I think U.S Mint took too many orders before they minted the coins. I have been ordering from U.S. Mint for over 6 years (probably lot longer for many of you) and never had problems with delayed shipments. I placed an order for one 20th Anniversary 3-piece gold set and three silver coin sets. I was informed that it may take many weeks for all of the ordered 20th Anniversary gold and silver coin sets to be shipped out. I was mostly "concerned" about the 3-coin gold set, for I did not want my order to get lost/dropped. The customer rep at the US mint told me that I will receive a set of the 3-piece gold but not till late November. Late November! I thoughts were that they are still minting the 20th Anniversary gold sets - upto 10,000 sets - that's 30,000 gold coins. Honestly, though, even if they lost/dropped my gold eagle set order, I would not be angry - just diappointed. I will have extra $2650 to spend on something else. Regarding the silver anniversary coins, I am just going to wait patiently till December (December is the target month which the customer rep told me that I would be getting my silver sets). Less than 2 months away. Heck, I've waited longer than that for my graded coins to come back from NGC. I reckon, the 3 silver sets will make a perfect presents to my children (even though they wanted the Lionel train sets). And if I like the silver sets, then I probably order some more for other family members. Regarding the San Fransico Commeratives, I've ordered both proof and uncirculated golds and silvers. So far, I have received the gold proof, but when I opened the box, the coin came out of the plastic capsule. The U.S Mint done a poor job in packaging in order to fill and ship the orders as quickly as possible. The customer rep told me that I will be receiving the uncirculated gold and both silver proof and uncirculated coins sometime in December. I guess I have no choice but to wait. I do envy those of you who already received the 20th Anniversary sets. And I am not going to trust their website when they said "free upgrade to expediateD shipping" for my gold proof came via regular mail. Then again, trying to fill hundreds of thousands of orders before X-mas, I say, "Good luck to you U.S. Mint - may the force be with you."

  16. Historians and archeologists have long regarded coins as important historical artifacts for understanding the culture and history of ancient peoples. That is why all world class museums include ancient coins in their collections. Modern coins and notes also reflect the historical and cultural context of their times.

    In order to fully appreciate the coins and notes in our collections it is important to understand the historical context in which they were created. While most numismatic reference books provide some historical context space limitations necessitate that the historical information in these publications is often highly condensed. It is impossible for these condensed summaries to fully convey the often complex historical context surrounding historically important coins and notes. In order to do so it is necessary to go beyond the basic numismatic reference material and study original source documents.

    Original source documents provide a much richer and more detailed understanding of historical context and really bring to life the importance of historically important numismatic specimens.

    My area of numismatic specialization is the coins and notes of the Philippines while they were under United States sovereignty. This is a particularly interesting and important period in United States and Philippine history. Fortunately America's experience as a "Colonial Power" and "Nation Builder" in the Philippines is well documented and many original source documents are available in the "National Archives", and museums in the United States and the Philippines.

    Over the years I have acquired a respectable private library of original source documents. My library includes out of print books written by the government officials, generals, and Guerilla leaders that played pivotal roles in the history of the Philippines under United States Sovereignty as well as official histories written by the "Center of Military History United States Army", and "The Historical Section of the Philippine Army". I also have certified copies of many original documents from the National Archives and the MacArthur Library. The documents from the National Archives and MacArthur Library are particularly fascinating to me as these once "Secret" but now declassified documents paint a very vivid picture of one of the most important periods in our nation's history. I am also privileged to own some of the original research notes and personal correspondence of the noted numismatic researcher and historian C.M. Nielsen.

    Today's Journal is the first of a series that I will be posting on Numismatics and History. In this series I will be highlighting some of the books, documents, research and private correspondence in my private collection. Hopefully I will also be able to share my enthusiasm for studying the historical context of our numismatic specimens.

    Today's offering is a certified copy of a declassified "Secret" U. S. Army document from the MacArthur Library. The document, which was not declassified until 1975, is the official transcript of a secret radio communication (dated January 16, 1943) from General MacArthur to LTC Marcario Peralta the Guerrilla commander in the central Philippines.

    Peralta was one of the most dynamic military leaders of the Philippine Resistance. He was born in Manila in 1913. In 1936 he graduated from the University of the Philippines with a law degree and a reserve commission in the Philippine Army. He was later commissioned in the regular forces and by the eve of World War II had risen to the rank of brevet Lieutenant Colonel.

    When the Japanese invaded the Philippines Peralta was the Assistant Chief of Staff for Operations and Training (G3) of the 61th Division Philippine Army which garrisoned the island of Panay in the central Philippines. As Division G3 Peralta oversaw the establishment and operation of a Guerrilla Training school to prepare the reservists of the 61th Division to carry on the fight in the event that the main U.S. and Philippine forces on the island of Luzon were overwhelmed. He was also responsible for the stockpiling of supplies and munitions in the mountainous interior of Panay.

    When Corregidor was overrun by the Japanese and Lieutenant General Jonathon Wainwright ordered all USAFFE (United States Army Forces Far East) forces in the Philippines to surrender Peralta refused to accept the order and told his Division commander, General Christie, that he would rather face court-martial after the war than surrender to the enemy.

    Christie sympathized with Peralta's position and sent several passionate communications to Major General Sharp the USAFFE commander in the central and southern Philippines requesting that the 61th Division be detached from Sharps command and be allowed to fight on. Sharp flatly refused and ordered Christie to surrender. In fairness to Wainwright and Sharp they had little choice since the Japanese were holding the American and Philippine garrison of Corregidor hostage and were threatening to execute one hundred prisoners a day until all American and Philippine forces in the Philippines surrendered.

    On May 21, 1942 Christie reluctantly ordered the 61th Division to surrender. At the last division staff meeting before surrender Peralta convinced Christie to turn over the division funds, consisting of sixty thousand pesos in Philippine currency, so that he could organize Guerrilla forces on Panay. Five thousand officers and soldiers of the 61th Division followed Peralta's example and refused to surrender.

    After the formal USAFFE surrender Peralta reorganized the 61th Division on Panay. After the 61th Division was fully operational Peralta extended his influence to other islands in the central Philippines and established the IV Philippine Corps. Peralta was the first Guerrilla commander to establish radio communication with MacArthur's Headquarters in Australia. By the end of the war Peralta commanded one of the largest and most effective Guerrilla commands in the Philippines. When American forces returned to the Philippines they found Peralta's Guerillas waiting for them on the beaches ready to join in the liberation of Panay.

    For his actions during War War II Peralta was awarded two of the U.S. Army's highest awards for valor the Silver Star and the Distinguished Service Cross. After the war Peralta went on to a distinguished career in the Philippine Army retiring as Deputy Chief of Staff of the Philippine Army. After retiring from the army Peralta was elected to the Philippine Senate. He also served as the 13th Secretary of National Defense for the Republic of the Philippines.

    At the time of the radio communication of 1/16/1943 Peralta commanded the IV Philippine Corps which consisted of the 61st Division on the island of Panay, the 72nd Division on the island of Negros and the 83rd Division on Cebu. Please note the last line of the communication where General MacArthur authorized Peralta to "issue reasonable amounts of -script for military purposes only". This authorization served as the basis for the establishment of the Free Negros Military Currency Committee and their issuance of 1943 Military -script.

    The Military -script of 1943 consisted of "Army of the United States of America" notes in Two Pesos (S711 and S711a), Five Pesos (S712), Ten Pesos (S713), and Twenty Pesos (S714) denominations issued under the authority of the IV Philippine Corps and a second issue of One Peso (S715) and Twenty Peso (S716) notes issued later in the year under the authority of the 7th Military District.

  17. Never felt so happy to get a 15

    Happily Surprised

    Sending notes in to be graded can be a real shoot.

    Sometimes lucky 7 comes up and sometimes you out.

    This time I was Happily Surprised, I was expecting this rare

    mule to come back a 10 or 12 net. It was like Christmas when

    I saw the 15 and no ugly comments. PMG has graded

    over 1 Million notes now, with a total of (2) 1935 Mules from the M-A block.

    My 1935 set is now 100% complete.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry. People were complaining about the shirt shamming artists as a legitimate career choice. Old Navy apologized for the T-shirts and pulled them from its stores and issued a statement that it did not try to offend anyone on purpose. In my opinion the Old Navy did not offend anybody. The T-shirt merely reflected the current affairs of the art and the place of an artist in our contemporary times. I call the current situation "Hyperinflation of Arts".

    Hyperinflation in economy often occurs when there is a large increase in the money supply not supported by the product growth, resulting in an imbalance in the supply and demand for the money. Left unchecked this causes currency to lose its value. Rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society.

    "Hyperinflation of Arts" started with Conceptual Art movement in the mid-1960. The movement completely rejected standard ideas and aesthetics of art. Many works of conceptual art, often called installations could be created by anyone. In the article "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" Sol LeWill explains: "In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art."

    In music around the same time, the avant-garde movement developed. That movement in music challenged and critiqued existing aesthetic conventions, rejected existing status quo, and introduce new and unique elements to provoke or annoy the audience. Music, however, recovered from the influence of avant-garde movement, and moved on. Maybe because you can reject existing status quo all you want, but at the end of the day, you won't be able to play any music without music elements such as rhythm, harmony, dynamics, etc., or music theory. Yes, you will be able to go on stage and cut the piano in half to shock and annoy your audience, and you can declare that it was a music performance. Next time however, your audience is not going to show up to see it again, because it was interesting once (maybe).

    Music moved on, and avant-garde movement is just a movement in music history, however art never recovered from the conceptual art. Art is still under strong influence even now in the twenty first-century. We are still suffering from the belief that idea suffices as a work of art, and that concerns such as aesthetics, expression, skills are nothing, but the limitation to the boundaries of art. The boundaries were pushed very hard and are still being pushed. Institution such as museums and art galleries, and educational institutions are still forcing conceptual art as a main stream art, and any other styles of art suffered devaluation.

    The idea that you don't need any skills, or education, or talent, or anything else to become an artist was pretty much accepted. This notion opened the door for anybody who wanted to enter the art scene and declare themselves the artists. I personally witnessed ridiculous situation when someone without any degree was teaching in a major university. The university hired someone without any degree to teach the students who were actually pursuing the art degrees.

    I'm sure everybody is familiar with a tale by Hans Christian Andersen "The Emperor's New Clothes", about tailors who promise an emperor a new clothes that is invisible to those who are unqualified for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor paraded before his subjects in his "new clothes", no one dared to say that they don't see any clothes and the emperor is parading naked, until a child cried out, "But he is naked!"

    I cannot help but think of the Andersen's tale when I think about the art affairs in our contemporary times. The mainstream institutions still strongly insist that "Emperor" is wearing expensive and sophisticated clothes and those who are unable to see, are unqualified stupid and incompetent. I personally see that "Emperor" is naked, Old Navy sees it, so does everybody else. Conceptual art like avant-garde music was shocking, and appeared fresh in sixties, seventies, eighties... , but in our contemporary time it cannot pass as fresh, but quite opposite. It stinks...

    Because there are no boundaries to entry, the art scene is flooded with endless number of people who aspire to be the artists, but don't want to spend a lot of effort, time or money to produce the quality artwork. The product they produce is the product of no skill, and represents rejection of standard ideas and aesthetics of art by the conceptual art movement. Such products presents very little value, therefore the value of art has been deluded, and in return the place of an artist in the modern society slowly disappears. Like in economy, rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society. Rapid devaluation of contemporary art is devastating for art, and painful for the society.
