  1. 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. Added on June 6, 2019 - Why not the Native Americans on most of the existing currency, which is most part of the Western existing states. Is this the time to look at new redesigns of all the existing Currency series starting with the Twenty Dollars and then One Dollar thru the Hundred Dollars notes entering the twenty first century? Not just adding a Black or White women but also all the Native Americans, shut as the American Indian, Eskimo, Hawaiian and the Mexicans American that were added with the area that Mexico ceded to the United States in 1848, the cession consisted of present-day U.S. state it's California, Nevada, Utah, most of Arizona, about half of New Mexico, about a quarter of Colorado and a small section of Wyoming. Also during this same time add Porto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Inlands. We have updated are flag with fifty states, why not the currency to cover all of the people. This could be part of new counterfeiting upgrade for both the front and back of the new small size Federal Reserve Notes series. The new currency could be infused the same way the Silver Certified were remove from circulation over a period of five or ten years. Added on June 25, 2019 - "Statement from Bureau of Engraving and Printing Director Len Olijar, issue on June 14, 2019 - "The illustration published by the New York Times was a copy of an old Series note with the signatures of former officials, with a different image super-imposed on it. It is not a new $20 note, as incorrectly stated by the New York Times, in any way, shape or form. The facsimile contained no security features or offset printing included on currency notes. There is nothing about that illustration that even begins to meet technical requirements for the next family of notes." You can see the full statement on BEP website.
  2. This BEP report list all the notes that were printed by both the Eastern Washington, DC and the Western Fort Worth, TX location. This report cover all production ranges printed with serial number and star notes, for One Dollar thru the One Hundred Dollars notes. This is first time the FED under this admirations, that they have miss the last three months for February, March and April production reports. The last update by uspapermoney website was for January production and was posted on February 19, 2019. Also on the last update “U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing” website show January 2019 production. The BEP website has cover the monthly production reports starting in fiscal year of 2003 thru 2018, witch cover the last fifteen years of production, without missing a single month. Also in the last report show that the One Dollars 2017 E5 was printed at Fort Worth the Western Currency Facility putting it’s out of the normal series. This BEP report is the only way a collector like you and me can see what new 2017 series notes were printed for all twelve Federal Reserve Districts and the serial number that were printed for each of the district and will be available at your local bank, our thru a currency dealers. Also this is the only way the currency books can be updated for new Friedberg number along with the correct number of notes were printed for both the regular and star notes along with the serial number issue for each of the twelve districts. You can see the number of slots change as more Mule and Back Plate Error are added and new 2017 series are updated, as of this time there are 710 slots in sets, and will change as the 2017 star notes are added. I will keep updating this Journal on the miss reports. Added on July 8, 2019 - Six month have pass without a production report on the currency of FRN that have or have not been issue buy BEP. At this time there is no way to updated 2017 series currency sets. There is no way to see what star notes that have or have not been issue to the banks. I have checked with three banks in my area on the west coast "Citi, Chase and Bank of America, all have not received any new currency as of the end of June. Added on July 22, 2019 - BEP issue a new production report for May 2019 for both Western Facility (FW) and also Eastern Facility (DC) that cover One Dollar thru One Hundred Dollars notes. The one item need to be noted is the low run of L star with only 10,000 sheets printed.
  3. THE NEW 2017 SERIES WILL BE ADDED TO ALL EXISTING SETS, ALSO THE COMPLETION OF THE MULE AND BACK PLATE ERROR NOTES FOR ONE DOLLAR SETS AND UPDATING ONES THRU THE ONE HUNDERS DOLLARS REGULAR ISSUE NOTES SETS. As I complete the One Dollar Master Set with only 43 notes remaining, I will spend more time building the other series of notes starting with the Two Dollars series thru the One Hundred Dollars notes, the first will be the Fifty Dollars notes and working to update and fill in the open slots. The second will be the five dollars sets. This will take some time to complete, for all of the sets. You will see them change as the notes are added to the sets. As part of this expansion I hope to see the BEP SHEET NOTES be added to the Registry sets, this would fill in and complete all of the sets for the One, Fives, Tens and Twenty Dollars notes that were printed by BEP and sold thru the BEP store buy United States Mint as a “premium product for the collectors”.
  4. THE SMALL SIZE NEW ONE DOLLAR 2017 SERIES NOTES WILL BE ADDED TO ALL THE SETS THIS YEAR FOR BOTH DC and FW RUNS I hope to complete the 2017 series of one dollar notes this year. In checking the population report, it's show that the total number of One Dollar notes graded at the end of last year is 543,984 an of that 176,139 are small size Federal Reserve Notes an of that 40,488 were One Dollar notes. The plan is to complete all of the remaining twenty nine Back Plat Error and Mule notes for the One Dollar FRN District Master set by the end of this year. This will be part of 46 note slots needed to complete the "$1 FRN District Master Set" for all the open slots. Over last year (2018) a total of 237 notes were sent in for grading by PMG and added to the sets. The photo below is the first one of two graded from the San Francisco District issue.
  5. The first will be the updating of the existing Five Dollars Small Size Notes sets to fill in the open slots and the addition of the 2017 series notes. The One and Five Dollars notes, along with the addition of 2017 series of $10 and $20 notes. The plan is to complete all of the remaining twenty nine Back Plate Error and Mule notes for the One Dollar FRN District Master set by the end of this year. This will be part of 46 note slots needed to complete the “$1 FRN District Master Set” for all the open slots. I have the SSFRN Five Dollars note sets schedule this year with 35 notes for one of the bulk submittal. Over last year (2018) a total of 237 notes were sent in for grading by PMG and added to the sets. Also this year will be the updating and adding more “Large Size Notes” this will expand the existing sets. Also updating all of the One Dollar sets with addition or up grading with higher graded notes. Also the addition of more Red and Silver Certificate notes. As part of this expansion I hope to see the BEP SHEET NOTES added to the Registry this would fill in and complete all of the sets for the One, Five, Ten and Twenty Dollars notes.
  6. Over 2019 you will see this set type “One Dollar Federal Reserve Notes – District Set with Stars and Varieties” change as more new notes are added and with the correction of Mule and Back Plate Error, also the addition of the sheet notes and other BEP issue items. This year, I hope to see the scoring system be completed to remove all of the dual scoring system. Over the last year 2018, with all the changes added up to more than 15 note slots to the sets. You will also see the addition of more 2017 series notes to fill in the open slots as the notes are graded by PMG. One of the sheet note that need to be added is the 2003 Fr #1928-J sheet note serial number J99910479A in a PMG-67E this should be listed a RARE note with only 14 graded to date and only 471,000 printed with the serial number range 99500801 thru 99971801.
  7. The One dollar Federal Reserve Note – District Set with Stars and Varieties set type, was just updated to add the missing mule (m) and back plate error (bpe) notes to the set. The last change added more note slots count and was change to 704 within the set. As more information and research work is done, the number of notes within this set will be added. Also some of the mule note are BEP sheet note and would need to be added as part of this set and are some of rarest. You will find most of information in Robert Azpiazu book, “Collector’s Guide to Modern Federal Reserve Notes – Series 1963 thru 2009” from Whitman Publishing, it’s also list all of series. This would help you the collector with notes that may not be listed within sets and help you fill in missing notes with in your collection. The SSFRN One Dollar set is one that will change with each new series. As I noted before this is like a penny collection that will change with time or a living set and sum of the later notes can be pick up at your local bank.
  8. At this time the BEP SSFRN sheet notes are not part of the Registry sets of notes and are not part of the scoring system, but the sheet notes are listed in all are part of the some of the existing one dollar sets at this time. I have ask that the BEP sheet notes be added for all sets or as a stand-a-loan sets. All of the information is listed on the US Paper Money Website for $1 thru $100 notes with all the serial number listed. The Registry list Disney Dollars as part of sets, but this is not currency and was shut down by Disney and is only a collector items with full valve as normal currency. I have added a Disney note set to my Registry sets, an will add a note in near future. There are 16 sets listed in the Registry as of today, May 22, 2019. I have two sheet notes on hand, they are 2003 Fr #1928-J with the following serial numbers J99896479A and J99910479A both were graded as PMG-67E and should be listed a RARE note with a high point count, with only 471,000 printed with the serial number range 99500801 thru 99971801. The notes are listed in the updated population report with a total of 14, with 12 in PMG-66E and 2 in PMG-67E.
  9. SSFRN – THEY ARE ONE DOLLARS 2013 D AND J STAR NOTES The last two one dollar star notes to be added to the $1 Federal Reserve Note – District Set with Stars and Varieties, master set are the 2013 D star block with two runs totaling 3,450,000 as a normal run and the 2013 J star block with only 250,000 notes printed making this a rare note. All the information is on uspapermoney.com and in BEP mouthy production data. The note were added to the MASTER ONE DOLLAR SET.
  10. BEP NEW RUNS - ONE thru HUNDRED DOLLARS NOTES with STARS – NO WOMAN ON THE TWENTY DOLLARS BILL The closing out of the 2013 series notes, the first printing were in November 2013, could be change out within the next two years with the changing of the existing Treasurer of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury, the year could be as soon as 2017 or 2020 with the printing delay with the new series notes. The 2013 notes came in under the presidency of Barack Obama’s under his second term, the newly elected president will have a change of appointing a new Secretary of the Treasury and a Treasurer of the United States, after January of 2017 with him being sworn in as the 45 President of the United State of America. Only after the printing on new notes will see if the change made to 2013 will remain or if some changes are made. The first notes were the 2017 $1 dollar currency printed in 50-subject sheet format, but the other were printed on 32-subject sheet. Also during the same time the new resign twenty dollars notes was to be printed with Harriet Tubman the first African-American woman on United State currency and would replace President Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollars notes. This would be the first woman in more than a century that will appear on US currency. The new designs was to be unveiled in 2018 and go into circulation shortly after the unveiling of the new twenty small size Federal Reserve note. The currently announced delay could be a precursor to outright cancelation of the Tubman portrait. With Trump in the Whitehouse we will not see a new twenty in the near future with a women’s right to vote. For more information see David C. Harper in May issue Numismatic News.
  11. UPDATING THE SCORING SYSTEM and CORRECTING THE SETS FOR MULES AND BACK PLATE ERROR NOTES I am very happy to see the Registry adding and updating the scoring system and also being proactive in adding the new series of 2017 notes as the information is issue by BEP and other website for the notes that have been printed. In this way a collector can see what notes that have been printed an issue by BEP and can picked up a new note as a bank note fine. They also have update the sets with mules (m) and back plate error (bpe) notes for the one dollar sets with stars and varieties and checking with the notes that are existing in the population report. Over the last year they have corrected and changes the scoring for more than hundreds notes and sets. Also at this time you can see the changes made to the scoring over the past six months. They have also added new 2017 sets for the one and twenty dollars notes along with star notes for that series. The next is for the Registry to correct and update the existing remaining scoring system that stall have some of notes with duel or two difference scores or points for the same note, this was part of the old scoring system stall exist within the system today. This may take some time for the Registry to correct and remove all of the dual scoring.
