  1. Last week
  2. April 31, 1966. I can safely say that no one has that birthday.
  3. Regarding my district sets.  I did not collect these one note at a time.  These were bought raw or graded by CGA.  I took all raw notes (just put another set in for grading at the FUN SHOW last week in Orlando) (show closed Sunday). All were bought from private parties, then regraded by me in PMG holders.  The CGA graded notes were ok, lost a coupla grades on some, most only one and a few, no change.  I'm sure they were all from BEP packages.  Two sets, I have the packaging from the BEP.  Ican't categorically state how the others were gathered, but I can assume with great assuredness they all had similar packaging.

    It remains however, that populations and rank are up to date was far as PMG records go.

  6. The PMG Registry continues to grow and now includes more than 12,000 sets. PMG Registry participants, we thank you for sharing your collections with us and the world! Read more
  7. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe this set was pre-assembled at the BEP and sold as a complete district set with matching serial numbers.
  8. To mark the occasion, a special label is available to submitters for no additional fee for a limited time.Read more
  9. I have a $1,000 bill graded by CGA 65. I would be willing to have PMG grade this note as low as 63. Please advise.
  10. Nice website indeed! I like the binary $5s in Gallery 4 the most! Also, sounds like a great show... maybe I'll go next year. Seemed to be strong bids on most currency lots in Heritage's auctions.
  11. Earlier
  12. $2 red seal lot of 10 consecutive serial numbers unc as far as know untouched are they worth having graded? If so what should have graded at?

    Shipwreck coins!

    HI!! long time no chat. I just bought 5 nice coins like yours, already sold one of them at the FUN show last week. They seem to be in demand. Sold a nice 8 Escudo Gold I just had graded. Got $1700 for it, 1733-12 FV Details sand worn (I wouldn't think not). A beauty. How you been? Capt. Brian
  14. Jan 14, 2020 JUST back from the FUN show in Orlando. Put in another set just finished(for grading by PMG). Hope to get it back quick, but I bet they're backed up 2 months minimum, so I'll just go on a coupla cruises and check the mail when I get back. serial #'s 00000082*, not quite as low as my 00000039*, but hoping for good grading. One of them has a terrible margin cut, almost no margin, so thats gonna be a 62 or three. As long as they all come back UNC, I'll be happy. Anyway, I'll upload pictures when I get them back. My table had an excellent location as it was in the front row, all the way to the left as you enter, and directly across from the NGC & PMG tables lining the east wall. So everyone had to go past me to get to them. We were swamped. People were actually running in the front door, and to NGC and PMG for grading. After the crowds dissapated, and I was able to kabitz with them, I got a lot of great info regarding grading and NGC's services. They're great people. One of my adventures, was, I finished getting together another district set like my 2003 $2 District set #00000039*, but with a little higher serial #, 00000082*. Now my other district set, --39*, has Marin's signature making a nice courtesy autograph pedigree, so I was thinking, what the heck, maybe one of the treasurer's or secretary to the treasurer, might be there and sign these notes, and that would be neato. Imagine, havin' 2 sets of 2's signed by the treasurer of the USA. Anyway, I went to the huge Treasury's booth, and asked who may be in attendance and none of the notables would be coming. Too bad, collectors LOVE to have the current treasurer sign their notes. Anyway, I never give up easy. I asked, "Could I leave them with you and you get them signed and then mail them back, and I'd pay any expenses. NO WAY!! LOL, they just don't do that. So, I was talking to four people there, one in regular clothes, one sheriff (A treasury agent officer in uniform) a suit(one of the big deals with the treasury but he downplayed his position), and a lady. As we joked around, (I was trying to loosen them up so I could get them to jump through my hoop) but to no avail. BUT... Not going to give up easy, I asked is there any luminary there which would be important. To which they said no. Most of this conversation was talking to the fellow in regular clothing and near the end of my saga, I asked who he was and he said, "I only designed the package the notes came in." Now that restoked my fires for fame and fortune and I asked if he would sign the notes, and I would see if PMG would grade them with a "courtesy autograpy' note on the holder. NOT SO FAST!!! So I went to PMG and asked if they would do it. 1st, everyone I asked said no, then at the last, the fellow in charge of the 'get your money graded' table said, I need to get authorization from PMG management. He said he'd email and ask, so I went off to call them. NOT SO FAST, by now, Thursday afternoon, they were closed. So... I waited until the next day, and called in, put on hold and never did really get an answer, got disconnected. Being the PMG manager said he'd email home base, I figured he'd get the answer first. SO..... Later that day, he flags me down and says YES, we can do it BUT, he has to come over here and we have to witness that. "GREAT!", I yell out. So, I race over to the Treasury booth, and spout the big news!! "I won, I won", says I. At that same instant the suit woman says, holding a little book, "We can't do it." "It would be defacing government property". And she hands me the book, and with a the greatest face of dismay, I lost the war. Won the battle, lost the war. BUT..., I did get Brian Brown, the designer of the package the notes came in from the mint to sign inside the book for me. I bet I'm the only one who has that in the 2000 packages made by the mint. Neato huh. Well, lost the war, but 'got a medal', doncha think? So, I put them in for grading, and when I get them back, I'm gonna see if PMG will allow some points for the book signing. (never give up) My web site has great pictures, and as soon as I get them back from PMG, I'll post them. www.exonumiaandmore.com Happy collecting, and NEVER GIVE UP!!! The pot of gold at the end IS there! Capt. B

    Error or no?

    Hello, this could definitely be considered an error but our graders would need to examine the note in hand before they could be sure. Thanks!

  19. Use of the geographical (regional) sort letter stopped in 1924, so the (E)252 note is older. You can also tell it's older because of the treasury SN (ED block in current terminology is well before NH) and bank SN is smaller. Also, the plate letters (F is earlier than HH). The newer note with the HH plate had the signatures engraved on the plates. The older note was likely sent out to a printer to have the signatures added and potentially the quality on the Cashier's signature suffered or that's the signature that was provided by CC Taylor. Interesting difference in Taylor's signature! As nice as it is in later years I suspect the printer didn't do a good job, just a good enough job. Sand's initial (E) is quite different too. As for the VP notes, some had the information in the description of the notes and some I just noticed browsing notes. HA just sold a $5 BB on a New York, NY The NB of Commerce in NY, Ch. 733, with J. Pierpont Morgan's signature as VP. I think that's a tough signature to come by. I don't know of a database of VP signatures. To my knowledge, they were not recorded in the annual comptroller of the treasury reports (just cashier and President). I also like the RADART SN N702073H... I see that more often than a Radar SN. It has one extra digit--a 3--too many. The other note is a RADRA SN 87687. I should start another signature set on these...
  20. That is a fantastic set! Thanks for posting the link. I enjoy looking at other collectors nationals. Did you acquire just by visual inspection of the notes to see the 'v.' or 'vice'? Did you do prior research using a database? I would be curious how you were able to spot the notes. Also, I noticed you have a couple of serial number 1 notes. Very nice Catawissa note. I saw a few SN #1's at FUN but didn't pull the trigger. On another note, I noticed that Ch #252 had only C.C. Taylor as the cashier, also with a prominent signature but there was a series of notes that his signature was clearly not the same as other stamped or engraved versions. The attached file shows the commonly seen C.C. on the bottom photo and the mystery C.C. on the note with the regional 'E'. Another mystery!
  21. Hello, Paul. This note is for Pick# 62d. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
  22. Series 1882 notes use Prest. with the t superscripted. I'm inspired to make a Nationals signature set with Vice Prez signed notes. OK, here it is: https://notes.www.collectors-society.com/registry/notes/ViewPersonalCollection.aspx?UserCollectionID=1440 From the National Bank Act (ch. 58, 12 Stat. 665; February 25, 1863), originally known as the National Currency Act Section 11. The association (the national bank really) were "to choose one of their number as president of such association and to appoint a cashier and such other officers and agents as their business may require; and to remove such president, cashier officers and agents at pleasure, and appoint others in their place;" Section 18 stipulates that the notes have written or engraved signatures of the treasurer and register "and shall also express upon their face the promise of the association receiving the same, to pay on demand, attested by the signatures of the president, or vice-president, and cashier;" So here we find the vice-president may sign, but I don't see an Assistant Cashier, although I haven't followed the statute forward to see if it was modified to allow for an assistant cashier's signature. Then again, the officers were chosen and replaced by the 'association', so who would know who the cashier was at any given instance. My favorite note in the signature set above is the SN1 $5 red seal from Catawissa, PA with signatures of the Assistant Cashier and Vice President.
