  2. With the President in the White House, its look like we will see the new redesign Twenty Dollars bill with in this year or next year, with "Harriet Tubman" on the bill in 2022 or 2024 series, only after the new Treasurer of the United State and a new Secretary  of the Treasury are name and approved by House and Senate. We will see the new "Harriet Tubman" bill that will be printed; I hope they can be printed at both the Washington D.C. and at the Fort Worth TX location. This will be the first time a person of color will be on any U S currency in the history of the United States. This bill first design was the 1928 series with Tate-Mellon and the next was in 1996 series with the Withrow-Rubin "Big Head" notes series was last printed in that format.

    Starting in 2004 the new redesign notes with Marin-Snow series was the first printed in that format, and rand from 2004 thru 2021. This will be the fourth redesign for the Twenty Dollar notes. This is one of the most used notes of all the currently in circulation today. The Harriet Tubman bill will be an open face design, the same way as the series of 2004 current bill that are in circulation. This will be a newest note in the series of Twenty Dollars notes, within this collation.

    What do Ontario, CA and Glasgow, KY and Warren, PA have in common?  Those are three towns of many that had National Banks with "Citizens" in their titles.  David Wooster, a general in the American Revolutionary War has at least one municipality named in his honor.  What state is it in?  By the way, it had a Citizens NB and the note I have posted there happens to have a nice radar serial number.  Keene, right?  Yep, it had a Citizens NB and was one of the first banks to have BEP produced plates which was a reason for Series of 1875 National Bank Notes!   sig.jpg

    1880/9-s Morgan, Vam 11 Hot 50 NGC MS67 PL?

    I have just aquired a 1880/9-S Medium S Vam 11 Hot 50 NGC MS67 PL. This Morgan is not found in the NGC population report. Can someone confirm this for me?? If so, how do I have it included? This is truly a unique Morgan graded by NGC. Can someone tell me what "HOT 50" is??

  11. 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."

    I am very new to collecting coins and have a lot of questions.

    I have had an interest in coins/stamps since my first JR stamp collection set and have just recently began to pursue this interest. I would like information on topics such as; " how to determine when a coin is worth getting graded, considering the cost of the service vs the value of the coin.

    I have picked up quite a few gems of wisdom just reading the message posts and I appreciate the e-bay advice it saved me some dollars last evening as I usually go by the sellers percentages of overall satisfaction and do not read the actual comments.I have interests in silver dollars and pennies and I have thus far not purchased anything worth the costs I paid for it so I guess I am a sucker, but I guess most of us where at one point or another.

    Coin addiction.

    I am 61 and it took 50 years to get started. I was widowed last year in July and I needed someting to do that could replace marrage and become a true companion. Since I was a little kid I was interested in coins; thier designs intrigued me and I could remember in 1959 when the new Lincoln penney came out and I was facinated at the statue of Lincoln depicted inside the memorial; I thought it amazing that such a tiny thing was "engraved" in such detail on that shiny brand new piece of copper. I tried collecting but spending was more fun at the time.

    Years passed and it wasn't until the beginning of this year when I discovered ebay and some friends that were collecting. After some searching, studying, wasting some money and then introduced to coin certification that I decided that coin collecting was fun and I became engrossed and somewhat addicted to modern US Coins.

    I got hooked and last month joined up. I am now a part of the Collectors Society and today I will enter the very serious beginnings of my Sacagewea dollar proofs and mint entries and watch them grow.

    I have plans to build my display cases and the thought of filling the empty spaces with graded, encapsuled coins is exciting. Building the cases is a project that is exciting as well. To anyone who reads this I am FlakyJT. Have a good day.

    High hopes!

    I have been purchasing more and more items from the BEP. My most recent purchases have been the limited edition collector's sets. I am hoping that as they sell out that the value increases. I just purchased the 1999 $10.00 Federal Reserve set limited to 2000 total availability. Anyone have any feedback for me? Let me know!

    At the age of 15 I started to collect....

    At the age of 15 I started to collect and was pretty proud of my collection but after 4-5 years it got stolen and I lost my intrest:-(

    Anyhow i?m now 52 years and regained my faith & intrest about 2 years ago.

    Must say i?m adicted & use at least 4-5 houers daily looking for new coins & Coin lots to buy so my colection is definitly growing again.

    I?w just joined here & am planing to start submitting coins for grading soon.

    I?m curently most into Russian, Japanese, Swedish, Philippine coins.

    1 coin I?m spessialy found of is a 1 Grano (Alof de Wignacourt 1601 to 1622)Malta.

    I bought it for a few dollars only as the seller dident know the coin, it toulk me a few days to find out what it was by help from someone with better knowlege than me in a forum :-)

    I?m also interested in Bank notes.

    I?m happy I still have time to learn but sad I dident start up again at yanger age!

  14. The 2013 Star notes had a run of 80,000 For the 2013 L star note. I came across these this week..... two packs of A, Boston FRB ..

    came across these this week, Will be placing one of them on ebay to test the waters... I have not seen any others yet.. but who knows how many are in the run as there is no Production numbers that I can find from the Federal Reserve (BEP). ??? There was an 80,000 run of 2013 L star notes, of course I want this First run of A stars to match that production number....

  15. I've sold some of my coins to work on currency.

    It's been almost a year (10 months I guess) since I've wrote a journal entry here. In that time, I've come to a big decision for me, I've decided to cut down on my coins so I can afford to purchase more notes and related items.

    This is one of those decisions that can cut both ways. I love coins, have since I was a youngster. But I do appreciate a beautiful, well-printed piece of currency. I also was a small offset pressman for many years, and I think this furthered my love of currency.

    I also like adjunct items (both coins and currency) and last week purchased 4 lots a Stack's auction. 3 of the lots are die proof vignettes used on various currency and financial documents, the other is a (quoting the Stack's description) "Archival Specimen" of a "Teller Order Certificate from The First National Bank of Deadwood". Based on the date, this would be Dakota Territory.

    So, I hope this entry shows how exited I am to be able to afford more currency and related items. Another related item I really love are die plates of vignettes used on various types of financial documents. As an example, I'm attaching a scan of a print of one of my dies, this one is entitled "Lower Falls Of The Yellowstone". Hope you all enjoy it.
