Bison Added to the Trophy Case
I recently added this mid-grade Bison Note or Buffalo Bill (great names) to my $10 large-size type set. This design is very popular with collectors, and prices reflect it.
Notes graded 67 recently hammered at $17,600 to $18,800. 66's sold for $11,750. Too rich for my blood. I came down the grading scale to nab this trophy.
This note design is rated as number 6 in the book 100 Greatest American Currency Notes (Q. David Bowers). Portraits of Lewis and Clark are also on the face of the note.
