  1. Oh good, I thought it was something I said... :-) Seems to work this morning. I have problems with my work website based on which browser you use, including Safari on your smart phone. I just wish someone would grade my notes now--they've been in Sarasota for over a month. Ooops chat boards seem to work, but journals still not working.
  2. Just 4 off from a radar. I'd bid it up to about $10 if it were at auction. Nice they gave it a grade.
  3. Finally, here's that sample. Sorry it took so long.
  4. I'll redouble my efforts :-) What happens with 5 likes? Do you get a badge? Like a steamin' pile o' sheckels? Anybody know how many PMG note holder types that PMG has used in the past 15 years? I just know of 2--the current holder and the one before that one.

    Rec'd at PMG, the wait begins.

    Another week down; notes still stuck in Received. Here's one of my small size NBNs waiting to be graded.
  6. Now I want a descending pairs SN :-)
  7. Make sure the font on the SN on the back is exactly the same as that on the front. It looks good to me with nice embossing evident on the front. See also PMG's posts on counterfeiting and changes to Serial Numbers (e.g., see: https://www.pmgnotes.com/news/article/8052/). For example, they use UV to see if a SN has been removed (but be careful not to look into UV as you can damage your eyes). I like the look of the note except for the lines where the SN would have been. That's a flag to me. Especially check this area as shown by the arrow in the attached pic. 99% sure it's genuine given
  8. Report it to the shipper. Save the packaging. Photograph the package. Let the seller know. If eBay, they also will help protect you.
  9. On a VG probably not, on a CU, may just make it an AU or possibly just a comment.

    Kelly's 6th edition of national bank notes is a good entry level book on populations. It's about 60-70 dollars. Maybe you can find one used. The census data is dated, but it doesn't change that much. Track and Price subscription which is a yearly charge gets you auction prices and updated census data, but you miss out on data elements like treasury serial numbers. Maybe the NBN census is the top of the line--not sure what the subscription is but I know they take paypal :-) I just have Kelly--census comes on a CD. So for example, the Security NB of Dallas shows 12 other $10 PBs not i

    I definitely will post the note in its new holder. It will be like Christmas Day/BDay/Return from Overseas assignment Day combined when my notes arrive home safely! I'd be OK with a F15 grade. Not going to be a lot of points, but it would be hard to beat all the things this note has going for it. The folks in Western PA got a lot of use out this $10. I was a bit reluctant to give my grade, but I'm comforted by the fact that no one from PMG seems to read these journals--and I kinda trust their grading process.

    Rec'd at PMG, the wait begins.

    I just sent a good chunk of my NBNs to PMG to grade. The post office sure took it's time, but got my package there in 8 days instead of 4. PMG listed as received about a week after it arrived in Sarasota. Here's one of the notes awaiting scrutiny. I can't wait to add it to one of my series of 1882 collections here. Connellsville, PA The First NB (E)2329 Radar Treasury SN on a $10 1882 VB Fr. 576 Tillman | Morgan SN 9076/T493394 pp F/118. Love that SN especially on an early value back.

    Good eye, hard to beat that for a 65EPQ. That should be about $200 on an Heritage auction; $500 on a LK auction :-) The upcoming HA Dallas auction is starting to post pics. It's got a ton of Texas notes!!

    I've had that note on Bryan, TX for quite some time--5 years. Five years ago is about when I really got into nationals and I've bought next to no coins since. It's in my first name signature set too (along with Victoria and Clarksville, TX of course). Seems like I only buy banks from towns that are first names on Texas. I had PMG certify it about 2 years ago and was happy with the VF 25. No EPQ for Bryan :-( I didn't know where Bryan was... We could always do a trade one day. I've been close to Victoria driving to S. Padre Isl. My collecting goals are shifting more towards series of

    In keeping with the Texas theme here, I'll share my series of 1902 TX set in it's current state (which would be more like Delaware in Size than Texas). I do have a Houston, TX The First NB Ch. # (S)1644 $10PB on the way to PMG. Basically it needs PMG to give it a grade about 3 levels too high for it to displace my PMG 30 Victoria NB $10 PB, but the numbers are just cool... 220361/X16961 pp Q/111
  16. If you had the Y99988999Y SN, you'd be in business :-)
  17. I won a sample note from PMG back when they ran a trivia contest for members (yes, those were the good 'ole days). It was a Malaysia, Bank Negara Pick #51 1 Ringgit ND (2012) PMG Unc Sample PMG Collectors Society Trivia Contest SN AG6140428 PMG 1528092-028 Sign. Z.A. Aziz, - Polymer Note I don't have a pic to post (Sorry), but it's at least one generation removed from the current PMG holder. It is the only sample holder in my collection. If there's a massive groundswell of demand (i.e. 5 likes on this post ought to represent a groundswell around here), I'll dig it out and post a pic.

    Zowie! That's absurd. Wait for the Kagins auction and it might start more reasonably. Nice Richmond DB. My VA set is in sad shape.
  19. Pretty sure PMG will not add the super as it is just implied in the "solid" ... A solid is a solid and it just doesn't get any more superlatives. Even a "super" radar doesn't get a "super" from PMG (i.e. a 71111117 is a radar just like a boring old 77111177 quad radar is just a radar). So no super, no quad, just a radar. Also, the solid 8s by definition is a rotator, flipper and radar--but it's all contained in the "solid". Quite the find if you got those out of an ATM! Recently a number of mismatched serial number $20s were pulled out of an ATM and Northeast Numismatics is selling them.

    V697873 was the last Treasury SN used on a Value Back; in this case the bank receiving that sheet wasn't recorded by Huntoon. Your note is rather low in the V numbers, so likely it was sent off to Port Arthur late in 1919, or maybe 1920 before the need for the First to renew its charter and issue Plain Back of series 1902 (my wife would like the charter date as it's her birthday--guess I should like it too :-). With only T U and V used for 10-10-10-20 Series of 1882 Value Backs, it's surprising how under appreciated TEN is on the back of a note when compared to the Date Backs and Brown Backs
  21. You should do a search of ebay for "solid 8" and Heritage Auctions. Join heritage for free. Their auction archives are great. The solid 8 ought to be a $1-3000 note depending on grade; the near solids less. Make sure you ask PMG to note "Solid SN" on your submission form.
  22. I have more than 20 notes to submit using only the Economy tier. Can I use a continuation sheet for lines 21-xx?? Note, all have different Fr. Catalog #s.
  23. County Seat of Perry County. Interesting town. I have an 1882 Date Back and a Ty. 1 $20 in competitive sets.
  24. Total depends on the bank, charter #, denom, like you said. If it is an uncut sheet, please do not cut it up. If you post a pic we could make an attempt at a valuation, but it's hard to grade an AU from a CU without having the note in hand.
  25. appears in an old database from HA along with SN 27522601 through 693, as CUs. Highest graded PMG 66EPQ, SN B2742642 pp B.
