  1. Today I officially got a P-72 Zimbabwean banknote for my wife for my birthday. I think it actually came right around a month ago but as of today it is officially “mine” and I can list it. lol Anyway… 

     

    s-l1600.thumb.jpg.5758918716c0e1b76ba7d805a4b01823.jpg

     

    It came with a circulated 500,000 note as a tag along. :)

     

    246168819_2114973665322273_8009419858305435989_n.jpg.6e175fec82b2b34e3022dc6bb6f087c0.jpg

     

    At a whopping $265 – a very high price tag for this set, making it cost about 1/10th as much as the rest of the 100-note set combined and beating the next most expensive note by a factor of ~2.5 – this was a bit of a painful one to pull the trigger on but I just had to have this or I don’t think I’d ever be able to feel fully satisfied with the set.   

    This is / feels like a pretty big thing because it finally completes my 3rd dollar banknote set by pick #. 

     

    This means the list of accomplishments in my Zimbabwean banknote collection (Gradually, then Suddenly) for 2021 includes: 

    1. First dollar banknote set complete by pick # - I added the P-3 at last. 

    1. First dollar traveller’s checks complete by pick # x2 sets 

    1. 2nd dollar bearer checks complete by pick # - I filled in the last 3 holes, one with a top pop I sent in myself. The only thing I think that is arguably missing here is the P-46a sub-type. 

    1. 3rd dollar banknotes complete by pick# - I have hardly ever seen a 73b, a 74b, or a 76b for sale and I refuse to pay $140 for a grade 15 just to say that I have that variety. 

    1. A whole bunch of raw gas coupons added and added to the set with a placeholder. 

     

    The set is complete by pick number from P-1 to P-12, from P-15 to P-23, and from P-32 to P-104. 

     

    For the first time since I expanded the set to include all the pick numbers there are fewer than 10 holes / gaps in the set.  

     

    6 of those holes are the Cargill Bearer checks – I’ll try my best down the road but… those are hard, and I just don’t feel bad about not having them! 

     

    2 of those gaps are notes that, as discussed in other entries, I’m not convinced deserve to even have their own pick numbers (P-28 and P-31). 

     

    And the last hole is a P-105, and… does anyone think I won’t get that as soon as I’m good and ready? lol 

     

    Looking at it, seeing that last gap in the middle of that huge, otherwise unbroken, 70+ note block… Feels nice! And I’m a little shocked and in awe. I would not have believed I’d get here in 2019, especially not in just 2.5 years. 

     

    At this point, my set has more notes and varieties and more images of notes in higher grade / better condition than many of the sites I used to learn about the collection and build mine.   I feel really good about reaching this point. REALLY REALLY Good. 

     

    But every time I hit a milestone like this though the “road ahead” becomes a steeper climb. Lol 

     

    Last night I also won a new P-46b unopposed. The P-46b in the set is one of the three notes I submitted myself earlier this year, but it disappointed with a 64EPQ. I was happy enough to get to have the 2nd dollar set, but, as I long suspected would be the case, not long after I just graded them myself the dealer I get so many of these notes from started popping up with more 2nd dollar bearer checks in high grade for cheap. They've been listing a lot of things in the range of P-39 to P-49 in 67 and 68 EPQ grades the last couple of weeks.

     

     

    I'm a bit salty over this because I got charged sales tax again this time when I haven't been charged sales tax the last couple of times I've bought from them. That brought the price up to $37.88. If I'd known I'd be hit with tax and pay almost $38 and not $35 I would have just bought the note from them through their site. It's $35 on their site and I won with a $30 bid, but I could have used their 10% discount code, not paid shipping and gotten out for $36.50... At the end of the day, it's $1.38. Not a big deal, but still mildly annoying. I'm getting tired of this on again / off again with this seller and eBay on Sales tax. Between that and the discount code on the site I'm increasingly convinced that I need to just give up on eBay wit this seller as long as that 10% code is on offer. However, as Mike has pointed out, a lot of their better stuff goes to eBay on auction, and doesn't show up on their site until much later, if it shows up at all. So waiting and hoping to see it on the website is a bit of a risk.

    It's a little funny to me that this post is focused on the two different 10,000 dollar notes in two of the series / sets that have them. There's a total of 5 $10,000 denominations, with P-14 (RARE!), P-17 (Dirty Common), and P-24 (RARE) rounding out the group.

  2. With the President in the White House, its look like we will see the new redesign Twenty Dollars bill with in this year or next year, with "Harriet Tubman" on the bill in 2022 or 2024 series, only after the new Treasurer of the United State and a new Secretary  of the Treasury are name and approved by House and Senate. We will see the new "Harriet Tubman" bill that will be printed; I hope they can be printed at both the Washington D.C. and at the Fort Worth TX location. This will be the first time a person of color will be on any U S currency in the history of the United States. This bill first design was the 1928 series with Tate-Mellon and the next was in 1996 series with the Withrow-Rubin "Big Head" notes series was last printed in that format.

    Starting in 2004 the new redesign notes with Marin-Snow series was the first printed in that format, and rand from 2004 thru 2021. This will be the fourth redesign for the Twenty Dollar notes. This is one of the most used notes of all the currently in circulation today. The Harriet Tubman bill will be an open face design, the same way as the series of 2004 current bill that are in circulation. This will be a newest note in the series of Twenty Dollars notes, within this collation.

  3. Written 8/7

    The auction for the 30 Shahiv banknote ended and I didn't place a bid :fear:, with only one bidder and a $158 starting price I just couldn't justify the risk of bidding and ending up with this note. That's not to say the note was not worth the price, Top Pop, it's the harder to find "b" variety with the Gray-Violet ink and it's the only note of this variety currently graded (all pluses) but I just couldn't do it. The note just didn't have the good vibrant ink/color that I would like to have with this note, (although the Gray-Violet version is notoriously light when it comes to color) no EPQ designation was a drawback as well but wasn't necessarily the determining factor, I just wanted a note with more color.

    The 30 Shahiv note concluded the seller's auctions of all their listed Ukrainian notes, all 4 Shahiv notes sold, the 100 & 250 Karbovantsiv notes did not and the seller has since relisted them. The 100 Karbovantsiv at a Buy Now price and the 250 is again up for auction with a starting bid of $138. I'm watching both and neither will sell, I think, although I did receive an offer from the seller of $10 off on the 100. hm The Shahiv notes all sold for pretty good money especially the 10 Shahiv, :devil:  and now I'm just waiting for the seller to hopefully list the next four in the near future.

    On a side note the 40 Shahiv I won showed up and it's a real beauty with better than expected ink. :cloud9: It's only graded 35 but I think it's strong for the grade, similar to how I though the 30 Shahiv looked weak for it's grade. When is a Fourth Party going to show up with fancy stickers to place on the holders to make these determinations? lol Like CAC for banknotes, lol it will probably happen in the future, if it hasn't already.

    Now, the agony of waiting in anticipation of the second set of Shahiv notes.:frustrated:

  4. Incorporated in 1840, Clearfield is a borough in and the county seat of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census the population was 6,215 people making it the second most populous community in Clearfield County behind DuBois.

    On the night of May 12, 1869, the County National Bank of Clearfield was broken into, the door of the safe ripped open, and $15,000 in currency and $4,500 in U.S. Bonds taken.  This story is pieced together from newspaper articles of the time. Note that some reports mistakenly have the bank robbed as the First National Bank. A sizeable reward of $1,000, or possibly $5,000 was reported.  Two men were arrested near Centerville on the 19th by Deputy Sheriff Huzzard and John Defibaugh.  They took passage on the stage some distance from Bedford, and the driver being suspicious of them sent word to the Deputy Sheriff and drove slowly until he was overtaken by the official. The two were taken to Bedford and jailed and the officers of the bank were notified. Cashier D.W. Moore, Esq., arrived the next day. A third robber with over $15,000 was still at large. In the meantime, D.R. Anderson and John B. Whip of Centerville found a package containing $4,500 in U.S. Bonds and $60 in new postal currency [known better now as Fractional Currency, issued from 1862-1876] hidden in the hollow of a stump near where the two men were arrested.  A preliminary hearing was held before Justice Nicodemus and the parties gave their names as J.M. Newman and Jacob [possibly James] Wilson. District Attorney Kerr made an application to have them removed to Clearfield County for trial and Sheriff Steckman was directed to convey them to the county jail in Clearfield.  It would come out that one of the two robbers was the notorious safe-blower known as Jack Nelson, alias "California Jack" and the third man named Jeddie E. Lamoine had made his way to St. Louis.

    Governor Geary of Pennsylvania made requisition to Governor McClurg of Missouri for return of Lamoine to Clearfield for trial.  Cashier D.M. Moore was dispatched to Jefferson City and with this document was able to procure an arrest warrant.  Lamoine was arrested by officers in his residence on Franklin near Garrison Ave., making no resistance.  Officers Harrigan and Tracy made the arrest.  Lamoine had previously been arrested on suspicion of having been connected with the safe robbery of the Franklin County, Missouri treasury of some $10,000, but was acquitted.  He had since been engaged in the liquor business under the firm of Lamoine & Co.  He was about 35 years of age with a wife and children.  Mr. Moore, accompanied by Officer Tracy departed St. Louis for Clearfield with the prisoner.

    By July 16, 1869, two of the Clearfield bank robbers were found guilty and sentenced to four years in the penitentiary.  The third party, "California Jack," turned States evidence and escaped punishment.

    In December of 1869, perhaps tiring of his duties as cashier, Daniel W. Moore purchased the Altoona Vindicator and changed the name to the Altoona Sun.  He had been associated from 1838-1865 with the Clearfield as sole or part owner.  He would become best known as a prominent citizen of Clearfield County and veteran Democratic Editor.

    About a day ago I submitted this on the bank wiki here:  County National Bank, Clearfield, PA (Charter 855) - Bank Note History

    Almost impossible to find, this Compound Interest Treasury Note was a recent addition to my $10 large size type note collection.

    81% complete after this addition, acquiring the remaining notes is a difficult and expensive task. Low grade net notes are my best hope, and I recently acquired this note on eBay. For the grade, it looks really nice. What say you?

  11. It's now the end of March, one of the wackiest months in my life and probably yours and perhaps in history of the modern world.  Plagues have been with us since the beginning and I suppose this isn't gonna be the last one unless we all go down with it.  But, not here to discuss our future, but the present.  Seems as though everything except the graders have gone home, and I bet their number of coins and paper money has dropped quite a bit as only electronic trading is happening. All the venues I go to are shut down for the foreseeable future, and my website hasn't had a hit in 2 weeks.  I thought maybe with folks stuck inside, perhaps more would be looking at the site, www.exonumiaandmore.com but no such luck.  

    I'm working with a company who puts up sites, so I cannot edit it until they finish with their legal beagles and so on and so forth.  So,I thought I'd talk about what I am doing to keep me off the streets looking for paper money blowing in the wind.

    A while back, I bought a stash of uncertified notes, mostly $2 modern FRN's  If you care to go to my site, you can see a few, and also I put a few on eBay and will add more when Tomorrow comes.  I put so many up, I ran out of free postings, so I have to wait til tomorrow. See captbrian2.  Is it illegal here to putup my locations of info. Hope not.

    Anyway, these $2's are of many sorts.  Fancy serial #'s, error notes, and so on. One of them, I especially like (the blue book shows it at $700+-, and it is with 3 other notes.  What happens is, the third printing, (the serial # & seal) are submitting to gravity, then fighting it.  The 1st note is where it should be (the serial #) then the 2nd note has it dropping down a bit. and the 4th, it begins to defy gravity and starts self correcting back up to where it belongs.  I have never seen a set like this, and I have talked with others who have seen similar, but it is quite rare from what I can get from the paper money community.  Anyway, I will try to post the pictures. 

    I always have incredible trouble posting pictures on these journals, but I'll give 'er a spin.

    No luck with picture. I'm gonna publish this then try to add in pictures.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry. People were complaining about the shirt shamming artists as a legitimate career choice. Old Navy apologized for the T-shirts and pulled them from its stores and issued a statement that it did not try to offend anyone on purpose. In my opinion the Old Navy did not offend anybody. The T-shirt merely reflected the current affairs of the art and the place of an artist in our contemporary times. I call the current situation "Hyperinflation of Arts".

    Hyperinflation in economy often occurs when there is a large increase in the money supply not supported by the product growth, resulting in an imbalance in the supply and demand for the money. Left unchecked this causes currency to lose its value. Rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society.

    "Hyperinflation of Arts" started with Conceptual Art movement in the mid-1960. The movement completely rejected standard ideas and aesthetics of art. Many works of conceptual art, often called installations could be created by anyone. In the article "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" Sol LeWill explains: "In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art."

    In music around the same time, the avant-garde movement developed. That movement in music challenged and critiqued existing aesthetic conventions, rejected existing status quo, and introduce new and unique elements to provoke or annoy the audience. Music, however, recovered from the influence of avant-garde movement, and moved on. Maybe because you can reject existing status quo all you want, but at the end of the day, you won't be able to play any music without music elements such as rhythm, harmony, dynamics, etc., or music theory. Yes, you will be able to go on stage and cut the piano in half to shock and annoy your audience, and you can declare that it was a music performance. Next time however, your audience is not going to show up to see it again, because it was interesting once (maybe).

    Music moved on, and avant-garde movement is just a movement in music history, however art never recovered from the conceptual art. Art is still under strong influence even now in the twenty first-century. We are still suffering from the belief that idea suffices as a work of art, and that concerns such as aesthetics, expression, skills are nothing, but the limitation to the boundaries of art. The boundaries were pushed very hard and are still being pushed. Institution such as museums and art galleries, and educational institutions are still forcing conceptual art as a main stream art, and any other styles of art suffered devaluation.

    The idea that you don't need any skills, or education, or talent, or anything else to become an artist was pretty much accepted. This notion opened the door for anybody who wanted to enter the art scene and declare themselves the artists. I personally witnessed ridiculous situation when someone without any degree was teaching in a major university. The university hired someone without any degree to teach the students who were actually pursuing the art degrees.

    I'm sure everybody is familiar with a tale by Hans Christian Andersen "The Emperor's New Clothes", about tailors who promise an emperor a new clothes that is invisible to those who are unqualified for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor paraded before his subjects in his "new clothes", no one dared to say that they don't see any clothes and the emperor is parading naked, until a child cried out, "But he is naked!"

    I cannot help but think of the Andersen's tale when I think about the art affairs in our contemporary times. The mainstream institutions still strongly insist that "Emperor" is wearing expensive and sophisticated clothes and those who are unable to see, are unqualified stupid and incompetent. I personally see that "Emperor" is naked, Old Navy sees it, so does everybody else. Conceptual art like avant-garde music was shocking, and appeared fresh in sixties, seventies, eighties... , but in our contemporary time it cannot pass as fresh, but quite opposite. It stinks...

    Because there are no boundaries to entry, the art scene is flooded with endless number of people who aspire to be the artists, but don't want to spend a lot of effort, time or money to produce the quality artwork. The product they produce is the product of no skill, and represents rejection of standard ideas and aesthetics of art by the conceptual art movement. Such products presents very little value, therefore the value of art has been deluded, and in return the place of an artist in the modern society slowly disappears. Like in economy, rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society. Rapid devaluation of contemporary art is devastating for art, and painful for the society.

  17. Be patient, grasshoppa.....be patient grasshoppa.....

    I think U.S Mint took too many orders before they minted the coins. I have been ordering from U.S. Mint for over 6 years (probably lot longer for many of you) and never had problems with delayed shipments. I placed an order for one 20th Anniversary 3-piece gold set and three silver coin sets. I was informed that it may take many weeks for all of the ordered 20th Anniversary gold and silver coin sets to be shipped out. I was mostly "concerned" about the 3-coin gold set, for I did not want my order to get lost/dropped. The customer rep at the US mint told me that I will receive a set of the 3-piece gold but not till late November. Late November! I thoughts were that they are still minting the 20th Anniversary gold sets - upto 10,000 sets - that's 30,000 gold coins. Honestly, though, even if they lost/dropped my gold eagle set order, I would not be angry - just diappointed. I will have extra $2650 to spend on something else. Regarding the silver anniversary coins, I am just going to wait patiently till December (December is the target month which the customer rep told me that I would be getting my silver sets). Less than 2 months away. Heck, I've waited longer than that for my graded coins to come back from NGC. I reckon, the 3 silver sets will make a perfect presents to my children (even though they wanted the Lionel train sets). And if I like the silver sets, then I probably order some more for other family members. Regarding the San Fransico Commeratives, I've ordered both proof and uncirculated golds and silvers. So far, I have received the gold proof, but when I opened the box, the coin came out of the plastic capsule. The U.S Mint done a poor job in packaging in order to fill and ship the orders as quickly as possible. The customer rep told me that I will be receiving the uncirculated gold and both silver proof and uncirculated coins sometime in December. I guess I have no choice but to wait. I do envy those of you who already received the 20th Anniversary sets. And I am not going to trust their website when they said "free upgrade to expediateD shipping" for my gold proof came via regular mail. Then again, trying to fill hundreds of thousands of orders before X-mas, I say, "Good luck to you U.S. Mint - may the force be with you."
