    If you get sick of them let me know. I know they get boring. But I enjoy Paint. Here is a Speelman-White signature collage. Those two signatures are very common on many many notes. Here are a few notes you can find the famous duo.

    Speelman and White signature combination.

    Collage of CH 6301 Red Seals

    I promised myself I would not get carried away with NBN. Stick to Federal currency. Ha! Just didn't happen. Putting sets together is a great hobby for me. How about those Arizona notes? The territorial notes seem to be off the charts with prices reaching that of decent automobiles for the red seal territorial from Nogales. Unbelievable how fickle that part of this hobby can be. Folks pay exorbitant money for utter rarity. I thought I would post an example of my other hobby. Finding interesting internationals at reasonable prices.

    Even at Heritage the Scans are ALTERED - Part 1

    You are truly amazing. I just don't have the eye you do. In that regard I am a simplistic collector, however from your observations I've learned how to scrutinize notes more carefully. How about some eye candy from the last Heritage auction. I couldn't resist this note. It's just so gorgeous.

    Ch #6301

    Do you have a list of the 132 Charters that printed on the Napier-Thompson plates? Is there a count of the number of notes with this combo? Do they command a premium? I would be interested as I only have one. Thanks!

    Ch #6301

    I have no connection to Pittsburgh. Can't stand the Steelers. Just like Ch 252 because I thought I could build a complete set. But found out that might be more doable with Ch 2491. And Ch 6301 I started collecting only because of the Mellon signature. You looking for these?

    Beautiful note with a ladder serial number. Let's see the value on the reverse!

    A PMG Grading Kanban

    I am like you. I know it's a long, long wait so I just predict what the grade will be. I am usually pretty close. However, the note posted below I purchased ungraded. It was crisp, perfect corners, clearly never had any folds...I mean the note is just spectacular. I thought it was going to grade 63 EPQ. And hoping it might even go higher When I received it, I was in shock. I have seen 40's that weren't even close to this note. This is the first note I have ever resubmitted. I will probably get the same grade, but this time I will press them as to what the flaws were. This not is so obviously never been circulated! I'll let you know when it returns from regrading purgatory!

    Ch #6301

    D. Dr. You're eye is far superior to mine. I would have never noticed the serial number type set you discovered. However, I did read the completely new news for me, from the article that before star notes, the replacement notes could be detected in the serial number. However, the article was not clear on exactly how to identify a replacement note before stars. Are you saying my $10 red seal is a replacement note because of the crooked treasury serial number? I recently sent this in for grading and just sent it back because I am sure 40 EPQ is not correct. This note was clearly uncirculated. Any help from your fountain of knowledge would be much appreciated. Yes, I am hooked on 6301, 252 and 2941. Common charters but easy to find notes to complete collections (or should I say...easier). Thanks, Sheik PS I added the reverse of the $20 PB because it was given the "good embossing" comment. Purchased ungraded for $336

    Collage from Los Angeles Ch # 2491

    Thank you very much my friend. Now I can cease my tireless search for the $5 PB from Ch #2491. Amazon sells Don Kelly's NBN book but it was written in the 90' edition 3. I think there are like 6 editions now?? Do you know what edition is the most current? Do you know where I can get the latest version. Amazon had a few old versions that were used. I want the latest version that is not used. In the meantime I thought I would share my BB Ch #2491. In addition to my $10, $20, $50 & $100 1902 PB and my $50 small Type 1 1929.

    My beautiful Ch #6301's. Just tell me I have a reason to be in love with this Charter.

    Salem, OH Charter 43 sequential serial numbers

    I couldn't tell you about back plates, but that is a seriously excellent score. What are the odds of finding consecutive notes graded the same at different shops? That is awesome. Keep them together forever!
