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.

Reverse of Investment Focus II

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.
