  1. 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.

    The only $10 VB recorded

    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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. County Seat of Perry County. Interesting town. I have an 1882 Date Back and a Ty. 1 $20 in competitive sets.
  6. 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.
  7. appears in an old database from HA along with SN 27522601 through 693, as CUs. Highest graded PMG 66EPQ, SN B2742642 pp B.
  8. Pretty sure The Hanover NB was 1st. I know because of this note in Heritage's archive: $10 Red Seal, F-VF SN 5497/A5497 pp F/2. I know (for sure) it's from a 4x$10 sheet because the font on the serial number is the new font introduced in 1903. If it was from a 3x10-20 sheet it would be the old font for SN A5497. Then since the bank SN 5497 = the treasure SN A5497, its from the first run. I don't think any treasury SN exist without the prefix letter. A prefix ought to be the first run. For 3x10-20 sheets, it wasn't until treasury SN B241777 that the new paging machine was used wi
  9. The database from Kelly is fairly dated, but is useful for relative rarity (assuming no hoards are found on a given bank (after the Kelly's last update). For example, the Reading NB of Reading Ch 4887 has for Ty. 1: 16-$5s; 32-$10s; 18 $20s; for Ty 2: 15-$5s; 28-$10s; and 7-$20s. It gives grades and serial numbers, including treasury serial numbers for large and plate letter. I occasionally miss the up to date pricing info from T&P. I have a nice $20 large size date back, series 1902 on this bank but it's in a PCGS holder, so not here in my collection.
  10. Seems more engravers did not cross their ts then did. Could be the style taught at that time, I don't know. I got Cs in penmanship. So I was lazy last time and didn't look at Heritage and the answer is there with only 3 $10 red seals on The Hanover NB (including yours) archived. All three are from 4x$10 plates. Here are the SNs plate letters and back plate numbers: F-VF 5497/A5497 pp F/2 PMG 30 SN 18309/A390378 pp G/9 PMG 25 SN 22418/A396987 pp D/1 Since a note from a 4x$10 plate (first use was in 1906) has a bp number 1, they obviously started at 1 despite having used bp 1
  11. google track and price. I looked and a subscription for nationals is $129. You can get a free trial. I looked at it for large NBNs and didn't buy because it didn't have treasury serial numbers. Do you collect a specific county or region of PA? I have a few smalls scattered from across the Commonwealth.
  12. Oh goodness, not sure that's good with the shill bidding plus notes that aren't quite as expected. I know of some shenanigans with certain ebay sellers. In the past it was much easier to see because you could find out the ebay ID of your competition--it's blocked now. I once did a 'buy it now' only to have the seller return my payment with item 'no longer in stock.' I thought I lost that one. However, I won the exact same note (same PMG holder) a few weeks later on a Heritage auction and paid just a few dollars more than my eBay purchase price. After commission, the seller lost more than
  13. Yes, more! Thank you! I had no idea coin sets to note sets was ~16 : 1. It's about 2:1 for me. I know NGC is giving lots of free grading away for top sets. I'd like some of that from PMG. I'm not sure the folks with the top sets on NGC really need free grading...??? And now I'm wondering how I get a look at Sheik's small size nationals collection? Think about 10 bucks in the '30s. My dad would hitch a goat up to a cart and with a buddy (whose father owned the grocery store) cart sodas and ice cream to road construction workers and sell them for a nickel. Yep, they had a refrigerated g
  14. I think there's demand for a lot more. There was on the PCGS registry when it was running. The problem is if you look at the chat boards, what you find is new user questions mostly. If you look at responses to journal entries, well there's little. People are busy and don't take the time to fuss (unlike me). You have to log in a 2d time to comment (or give me a sad face, confused face, haha face, or a trophy-like). Not worth the effort to put something out there. So, if you look at https://www.pmgnotes.com/registry/, the banner says "The Ultimate Destination for Currency Collectors". No
  15. The easiest new set to implement has to be Large Size Nationals by Fr. #. This info is already in the PMG database. Sets for Originals, Series of 1875, 1882, and 1902 by Fr. # come to mind. The old PCGS registry had sets for States and State Capital sets, large and small. That's likely harder to implement as I think all that PMG has data-based is the charter number, so a lookup table by charter number likely is required to get to the bank info (i.e. state and city). An A-Z Town name set would be nice. Oh right, a lowball set could be interesting.
  16. That Knoxville, TN $20 note is a radar bank serial number and the charter number 10401 is a radar too! Sheik has a date back on that charter which is a very tough Fr. # (well, it's just the top pop for an Fr. 596). For some reason he won't sell it to me cheap :-)
  17. I know a lot more about Zimbabwe because of your collection--they are beautiful notes. Thanks for the reply!!
  18. OK, I'm bored with 20 odd 'series of 1902 type' sets for my Nationals. I've asked for some more sets, but the response was 'no sets for you...' So, bored as I might be, I created my Series of 1902 Lowball Set. Check it out: See if you can get lower than my score of 1082 for 3 notes, or an average of 360.67 pts/note. You know the sad thing is my Tennessee set beats my Lowball set with 3 notes, 763 pts and an ave. of 254.33 pts/note, but that's because of net grades receiving just half point values.

  19. Imagine grading the Bebee collection down in Sarasota! That would have been fun. I'd be the one stuck grading 10,000 consecutive 2019 $1 notes courtesy signed by Pelosi and Trump... ugh. One question I have (Q1) is if the BP #s for $10 4x$10 sheets started at 1 to n and if the 3x$10-$20 sheets did the same. Thus my check above on the Philly and Marietta bank's choice--both ordered only the 3x$10-$20 format, so no answer there. Then the question (Q2) is how much variation is there on a sheet (limited by the number of sheets to examine). Your New York, NY The Hanover NB $10 RS
  20. Q2 generally scribbles and numbers receive a comment of 'annotation' from PMG. Generally the value would be less unless it's a courtesy signature from a notable person like a treasury official or celebrity. Q3 sure, a good reference for currency is Friedberg and typically you use the Fr. number when submitting US notes for grading.
  21. Nice looking $1 silver certificate Fr. 232. I think Jennifer has it. Thanks PMG for the nice pics that come along with the PMG verification tool.
  22. I'd say no extra value. You might want to check out http://coolserialnumbers.com/FancySerialNumbers.aspx If the note was crisp unc, I would tend to place a stronger bid on a note with a serial number like yours than one 'less' interesting.
  23. Given my current post and minor obsession on my Arkansas notes and banks that issued sheets of 4x$10s (as opposed to sheets of 3x$10-$20s), I checked on Marietta, OH The Central NB Ch. # 5212 and Philadelphia, PA The Quaker City NB Ch. # 4050 and found both ordered sheets of 3x$10-$20. So I still do not know why the Back Plate numbers differ and I still don't have a scope with a camera.
  24. OK, you wanted the user to click in the blue circled area to get to where you can find populations by block combos. Yep that works. And you found the answer to the question to be what? 3 in 66 and 2 in 67 for an Fr. 1922-I (II Block). Therefore, Paradox tremors was correct.
