  2. I think it could be fun to drastically redesign our currency and move away from the "greenback" concept. I've been seeing more and more world currency lately and most of it just looks a lot better than the current batch of US currency. They've added colors and security features over time but they've been reluctant to move away from the base look / design concept of the "greenback." As far as Tubman on the bill? I think it could be good... but all the concept art I've seen for the bill is just "blah." It doesn't look good. I suspect that's because most of what's out there keeps the basic look of the bill but inserts Tubman in the place of Jackson. I really hope that when they roll this out they'll make a visually appealing bill. I'd love to have one and keep it in my collection. It'd be a really special development for US currency.
  3. We Need Better Looking Currency! How about a remake of the Bison and Chief Notes!
  4. Trump Disses "Harriet Tubman" reworked of the Twenty Dollars bills. The 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 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 TIME EDITORIAL section on Friday May 24, 2019 an on most of the TV news stations. As notes in May 2018 ADDING - ONES journal, as notes that the new twenty dollars note would not be issue as long as Trump is in office. This mean that for another eight years, the MINI hall of fame that is the nation's paper currency will continue to be exclusively WHITE and exclusively MALE.

    Thank you! So after reviewing it looks like this note was printed on watermarked paper, which is why we notated "Watermark" on the label. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.

    I saw a 1869 $5 legal tender rainbow note graded by pmg 65epq with the term watermark on the grade would you be able to explain what that means thanks
  17. NGC probably hasn't gotten around to assigning any points yet for that note. just call them and let him know. PMG Cert: 8023451-005 Note #: MAD72Ab Serial #: YD9426643 Country: MAD Note Description: Madagascar, Banky Foiben'i, 2500 Francs = 500 Ariary ND (1993) Signatures/Vignettes: - Wmk: Zebu's Head, - Sign. #5 Grade: 66 EPQ Comments: Exceptional Paper Quality
  18. What set are you trying to put it in? Are the points listed as a "0," or are they just blank?
  19. Good afternoon. We would automatically put the signature on the label so you would not need to choose anything special for that. This variety is referring to an additional reference number that we do not normally list that you might want to add for an additional fee. Thanks!

    I don't really consider myself a note / currency collector. I just have my one, very narrow and targeted, area of interest in notes and beyond that I'm about the coins. But, even in my narrow focus, it seems like prices have generally declined since 2015 / 2016. I'd mostly chalked this up to a drop in interest as we gained more distance in time and people forgot about the Zimbabwe hyperinflation. I still think that's probably a big factor in that series but it's interesting to hear that prices are down mostly across the board. But I'm no currency expert.

    Truly. Many notes have actually lost value over the last 10 years or so. Even the really expensive rare notes have even seen some decreases since 2013-2015 and it's fairly apparent that the highest note prices were prior to the crash of 07-08. Also, I see folks bidding on Heritage are reselling on Ebay for a razor thin margins. I wonder how many real collectors are out there! I have noticed that really nice notes that have large populations have more or less remained constant over the last 8 or so years. So yes, that commission eats you up when you resell. Banknote Reporter has scant mention of price trends so you're right, there is very little guidance on price trends. One really has to watch the markets closely to even get a feel for it. T&P is good, I just never found it a particularly useful guide on price trends. Doing searches on Heritages ~600,000 notes sold is the only way I can really keep up on trends. I have noticed you can take a bath if you try to resale notes with any flaws unless the rarity of the note precludes those flaws and that seems to be on really expensive notes. And of course, as I have said many many times, buying ungraded notes is Russian roulette. Finally, the traffic of this board compared to NGC or other coin sites is really the nail. This board has a handful of us posting. PMG has let this web site flounder. Many folks update their note collection but no one shares their ideas. Maybe because us currency collectors are the oddest of the odd but i do love it!

    My comments: it seems like about 5 years ago currency collecting was hot, not so much now. I checked Heritage auctions one time and saw that the some expensive notes bought years ago are now going for less than what they originally sold for. One of the problems about selling is the commission that these auctions charge. you basically have to make 10-30% profit on what you bought the note for just to break even to pay them the commission. And of course there's more people getting their notes graded shows that there's more notes out there. Greater supply, lower demand. PMG is not the same as NGC. NGC provides a newsletter that can tell you which coins are hot or not. Also they have better records on the prices with auctions. Even the BEP now sells there notes now through the u.s. mint. But I still enjoy collecting currency much more than coins. PMG is doing a good job going international. But the same thing with coins I have no idea about world prices value I would never buy a note that isn't graded by PMG to ensure its authenticity. Good luck. Keep us informed and what you are noticing in the buying and selling trends.
  24. Yup. I see your point. I'm definitely not in love with the signature sets on this side of things. My view counts are stuck at zero even though I know people look at them, Every time I make even the slightest change to the slot name or comments my pictures disappear. Every time I try to add a new slot that doesn't go to the end of the set most of my pictures and some of my comments get blanked. I back-up all my writing in a word file on my dropbox to stop losses... I've brought most of this up with them but they haven't fixed it yet. I suspect the issues will be fixed when they just release a new format and change everything. I can't really blame them if they take that approach. When something is a mess and you're replacing it anyway, why invest time in fixing what you're just going to kill soon?

    There is life on these boards! I am curious what the buying and selling trends are in the currency world so I try and keep up with Heritage, Ebay, Stacks, Lyn Knight, Great Collections..etc I want to know if I am going to break even or not if I ever liquidate my collection. Unlike collecting nickels or quarters in a cardboard holders, paying significant money for a lot of currency begs the question of investment potential. Of course one must by the note, not the holder, but if the note is common, any comments or NET has risk. For rare or hot notes, comments are less important but it seems NET's and comments can result in incredible discounts to the actual value. Definitely a hobby one must do their homework. Thanks for the comments.
  26. The meaning of complete set in our world is subjective to say the least. I go on PMG's definitions for the Type sets that I mainly pursue but when you start talking about National Banknotes...Wow...is it both large and small Fr's? Large notes that go back to the Originals? Large NBN notes of a given denomination? Individual Ch#'s in large and small? Or just large? I guess you get my drift. And I am still working on the custom "signature"sets which is a really poorly written code. You agree? Anyway, no answers from me. Just rambling.
  27. What would the reason be for a note having zero registry points? As in this note with Certification 8023451-005. Thank you
