Down to one note - the 1934b $5 FRN...
The rare 1928D has joined the set - how fitting in 2009 with all this depression/recession talk. The 1928d's were issued around 1933 and quickly removed from circulation when the "Gold Clause" was removed on the 1934 series after the New Deal.
Now off to find the final note, a 1934b $5 FRN. Not just any old 1934b, I want to take my time to find a nice ungraded example of the series so I can have the fun of sending the note in for grading.
The elusive 1928C has joined the set - how fitting in 2009, the 200th Lincoln Annv.
Working hard and a great find in this economy - I picked up a ungraded 1928c $5 FRN for lowest amount in 2 years of searching. Passed up the first four and scored with this one - there is truth to the advice of being paitent for a nice coin or note that is a must for whatever you're collecting.
Now off to find the 1928d $5 FRN...
Have a great February!
