  1. Great bank name especially with the British spelling of sulfur. Kelly only shows this note for SN 1 from Sulphur Springs; T&P know of any others? I found a Sulphur, OK that had a national bank. I would guess the opposite of Sulphur Springs might be shown below.
  2. What set are you working on? Did you see an error message, like note not valid for slot? If you want to create you own, non-competitive set, create a signature set. Go to control panel, scoll to the bottom. Click on create new set, then select the green tab "Create a Signature Set" On next page fill in just the fields with a red star. Signature sets let you enter any PMG certified note.
  3. Well, CaptBrian did mention flowers and plagues, so back on topic would be a note with flowers (there must be some world notes that would fit in here) or an appropriately titled national bank note of course. While I don't have a Roseville, CA note I do have an Orange, CA note and a Floridian would appreciate orange blossoms as a flower I'm sure. So, here's my contribution to thinking about flowers (and not plagues) for now. Perhaps a field of blooms would be appropriate. The second note is from New Bloomfield, PA (named for the location's fields that were in bloom when Perry County needed a County Seat in 1820) and is one you can find in my Small Size Nationals of Perry County, PA Signature set.. Cheers All!
  4. PMG holdered a Technicolor note. They occasionally come up on Heritage. I don't see why they wouldn't holder the entire card. I like the bicentennial card! This souvenir card was issued at the 1981 International Paper Money Show in Memphis. It has been cut down to the size of the note as originally issued and was encapsulated by PMG, but not graded. It was printed from an original face plate (catalog # Fr. 1179). Gold certificates are the only US currency ever to be recalled and were illegal to hold until April 24, 1964.
  5. Hope you get pictures working. I've noticed a bunch of listings from sellers normally not very present on eBay. I will look for captbrian2 on eBay, but Nationals are my thing. I did post my one deuce in a PMG holder--it's a radar, and a bicentennial, but in PMG 35 garnering 3 points, I'm last place . But if we only had poor man's sets I'd be #1!!! You can check it out here.
  6. Turned digit or gas pump error (the older gas pumps used to have wheels that turned to show the price and would stop between digits). Slight mis-alignment is very common. They garner a very nice premium when more substantial as depicted below. And what you really want to find is a mis-matched serial number.
  7. Go to PMGnotes.com. Under Resources you'll find PMG Population Report. Select US, then small size federal reserve notes, then click on $1. Go to page 7 or just follow the link below. A search of Fr. 1922-I in the PMG Population report confirms 108 in 66, 87 in 67 and 10 in 68 (of course 65 and above always carry the EPQ designation). You will also find that there are 120 Fr. 1922-I* grading 67. see https://www.pmgnotes.com/population-report/united-states/small-size-federal-reserve-notes/1/?page=7 From this page, click on "BL" beneath 1922-I and then you'll find pops for all Block Letter (BL) combos and indeed, 3 in 66 and 2 in 67.
  8. I think you mean catalog number. The most common catalog for US notes is Friedberg (Fr.) numbers, a common reference that you may find in a larger library. For world notes you would probably use Pick #. Perhaps an easy way to find Pick or Fr. numbers without the reference is to create a free account on heritage auctions. Then a simple search of your notes ought to indicate what the Fr. number is.
  9. Thanks and good to hear from you! Pi Day update: Maryland has shut down all gatherings of people through at least the end of March due to the corona virus, so no spring show in Baltimore this year. I have a Baltimore $5 red seal I was going to drop off for grading--maybe this summer. If I get the grade I expect on that $5 RS, I'll move my MD type set from 36th to 22d place, moving slightly ahead of the Sheik Pittsburgh Ch #252 Same Signature Set (you need another Ch. 252 note Sheik :-). My 1902 Type set for MD is here: Stacks will auction the Garret example of an 1804 dollar with a high estimate of about $1.5 Million and one of just 15 known to exist. If I could just get half that amount for any of my nationals with known estimates less than a dozen I'd be able to afford an 1804 dollar. I'm happy to hold and admire my notes that were actually made to be used, unlike an 1804 dollar that wasn't minted until the 1830's. I'd be fairly happy to have one of those dollars too to admire :-) I should have shorted the market last month.
  10. Pi Day #piday is of course March 14th (or 3.14 [3/14], or “π”) followed shortly by the Whitman Coin Show in Baltimore and Spring! I've been busy making a sub type signature set of my series 1882 Nationals. My 1882 sub types set is a work in progress. Ever seen the Circus Poster variety on a $5 Brown Back?? Take a look. If I'm missing a better way to designate these notes, please let me know. OK, back to Pi Day. Check out this Elk City note from Oklahoma with a charter date of... you guessed it, Pi Day! It sports a nice 4 digit radar serial number as well and was previously in the Douglas Knight Collection. Then there's my Bangor, PA note, also a Pi Day charter and a solid 8 Serial Number. Perhaps I'll see ya in Charm City.
  11. Neat. Suggest posting a link to the set. From Control panel, find the set and click on signature (far right). Then copy the UBB code in the upper box and past into your journal post (you can edit your original post). That way we can get the same info as on your screen capture, but also open and see each note. So for my Large Size national type set of 1882, see: thanks
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. Excellent tip--I'll have to check out SPMC's site for bank officers. You learn something everyday. I also thought Jas. was for Jason, but looks like it's used for James. As far as a V in front of president, they typically were just penned in as a "v" or "vice" as I have several such examples. Recall my Fostoria, OH note from a previous journal entry (your finds at a local coin shop) where that bank had a stamp made for their VP to routinely use when signing notes. I find this all very interesting, but, no doubt, much more remains to be learned about Sands-if, indeed, anyone ever recorded details of his personal life. If time permits this would make an interesting story in Paper Money, the journal of the Society of Paper Money Collectors.
