I have always had moderate interest in paper, but never could really get started. I've found a real fondness toward obselete's and confederate notes.
Started a Signature Set to incorporate unique and interesting obsolete notes. Seems to be a fun and interesting way to keep the hobby fresh, take my interest away from coins now and again, so that nothing every gets stale.
The first note has a bit of hometown flair. Hagerstown, MD is about 15 miles from where I grew up and I've been watching many of these Hagerstown Bank notes recently. Made a fair offer on this MS 64 EPQ and now I'm the proud owner.
Perhaps the most interesting part of these notes is the traceable history, which I hope to be able to add to my Signature Set as time permits.
