  1. I don't know why the 5's look like that in the photos. They don't in hand. I had to place them on a little curio stand so that they would be at an angle to keep the plastic holder from reflecting the light directly back to the camera. Do you think it may have something to do with the opacity of the paper and the reverse design? (shrug)

  2. The $20 Hawaiian, the $10 1929 and the three, consecutive $5 Silver Certificates have been in my family for about 50 years. The 1917 Russian 250 Rubles was a freebie from NGC at the 2006 FUN. Since I'm not really into paper money, I'm thinking about selling them but I need to know what their value might be.

     

    Thanks!

  3. Then in that case I'd want a $100,000 note. Only used for bank-to-bank transfers smile.gif

     

    I believe this gold certificate with a portrait of Woodrow Wilson was only used for transfers within the Federal Reserve system. They were not available to other commercial banks.

     

    If I had my choice of anything, it would be the Binion Display, intact, that was at the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas...........100 - $10,000 notes.

  4. Remember a few years back when a man bought an old picture at a guh-rage sale and found one of the original state's copy of the... 893scratchchin-thumb.gif...was it the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence?

     

    It was the Declaration of Independence and he bought an ugly picture with a nice frame at a flea market for $20. If I recall correctly, it was believed to be the North Carolina copy that was hidden away during the Civil War (?).

  5. Hope someone enlightens her to the possibility the bills may be worth more then face! Otherwise, she may be spending way more at that next garage sale then she knows!!! headbang.gifforeheadslap.gif

     

    Okay, which CS member is in charge of the Omaha district? Be sure to get in touch with her and advise her of her rights...........I mean..........no, don't imply that she is a criminal..........uh, warn her about shady dealers..............sorry, I meant no offense...........you know what I mean, darnit!

  6. Wireservice report from an Omaha newspaper:

     

    Linda Stafford has been going to garage sales for 30 years, and it finally paid off for her in a big way. She was making room in her garage for her latest purchase, a high-backed chair that she bought for $2. Her daughter, Mandy Rath, heard something rattle in the chair. They removed the bottom and found two paper packets in a compartment, one containing $10 in coins and the other with $3060 in bills, Series 1928 to 1953.

  7. Latest ads in June 6 issue of Coin World :

     

    Hanks & Associates, Inc. - 2003 $2 FRN, Pack of 100 consecutive numbers - $239; 2 Packs - $469; 5 Packs - $1099

     

    Paul Sims, Inc. - 2003 $2 FRN, Green Seal - $2.95

     

    No ads for low serial numbers, but I thought I read somewhere that someone who got one of the earliest filled orders got shafted with very high numbers.

  8. I haven't heard a word about the $2 note sets sold late last year by the BEP.

     

    Any word on the secondary market? What about those who drew the low, low #'s? Any f/u news at all?

     

    Just don't try to spend them at any Best Buy in Baltimore, MD. The Balto. Co. PD has already arrested one man for trying to pass legitimate $2 notes.

  9. Thanks for your reply. We approach these notes from a value standpoint. The PMG is not even one year old and we believe that these notes in GU66 are worth these prices.

    Here are two reasons:

    1. We view these notes like the beginning of the certified Statehood Quarters. Just the 1999 Statehood quarters have increased in value three to five time over the last five years.

    2.When PCGS and NGC started, the pool of available coins was larger then and as a result the best coins when in first. Today, twenty years later, the pool of coins is much smaller and one can not find the same coins as they did twenty years ago. I believe the same will be true with currency. Today the pool is large and there is a better chance to find a high quality note, like GU66. As time moves forward, the pool will grow smaller, which will cause the price to go higher.

     

    Where can I get these PMG notes for:

    $1 2003 GU66 PMG FRN Philadelphia Fr#1928-C $14.98

    $2 2003 GU66 PMG FRN Minnaepolis Fr#1937-I $17.00

    $5 2003 GU66 PMG FRN Cleveland Fr#1990-D $20.00

     

    This is a emerging market and would like to gain an understanding of how one determines the worth of notes?

    Todd, in my opinion, comparing the FRN's to the 1999 States Quarters sets is misleading and a disservice to the collecting public and the hobby, itself. The States Quarters program was like none other in the history of the Mint. Not only was it the first change in the quarter since 1932, but the legislation mandated five different reverse designs every year. The reason for the astronomical jump in value for the '99 sets was because the program attracted tens of millions of new collectors to the hobby practically overnight. Many of them, however, became interested too late to be able to purchase these sets directly from the Mint before the '99 products were discontinued.

     

    You can't say that for these FRN's. How many people have been drawn to the hobby as a result of these "phenomenal" issues? All I can say is, "If you really believe what you are saying, here, I have some choice property on the moon that I can sell you at pre-construction prices. Don't miss out on this fantastic deal!"

     

    The fact that you are referencing the TPG's to try to support your argument is nothing more than the "hype" we ordinarily hear from the "Big Three"...........QVC, SaH & HSN. I think you should do one of two things...........either take this to the "Marketplace" where it should have been in the first place, or get a job with one of the "Big Three"!

  10. Welcome to the Boards, Caleb! In the future, I hope you don't mind if I refer to you as "CC". One of our other members has a "puppy" named Caleb and I don't want to get the two of you confused.

     

    PMG is just making sure they have everything running smoothly before they open the doors to the onslaught of submitters. My first submissions were through a dealer, and I received them about a month ago. I don't know if it is normal policy, but he doesn't charge anything for the service, just the PMG charges.

  11. The same serial would be cool.

     

    Before I approach ICTA, I need to know who here would support the notion of a Proof Currency set.

     

    Please reply with you comments.

     

    Todd

     

    Count me in! Although, I think we should come up with a designation other than "Proof". It (Proof) has been associated with coins for so long that it just doesn't seem to be appropriate.

     

    How about "CUTE" ........... Crisp Uncirculated Treasury Edition ? 27_laughing.gif27_laughing.gif27_laughing.gif

  12. Can Individuals submit paper money for grading directly yet?

     

    I'm sure that PMG will make an announcement (perhaps, here, on the boards............. Hint! Hint!) when they begin accepting individual submissions. I submitted six notes through a dealer and it took about 30 days to get them back. The turn-around isn't too bad.

  13. What could be the cause, O32 ? If nobody likes their cash, they can send it to me. I'll give it a good home.

     

    Right now, I'm waiting for several notes that were submitted by a local dealer for me. I can't wait to get them back.

    I don't get it confused-smiley-013.gif was that susposed to be a joke or a warning?

     

    Sorry, Hayden, I just assumed that you would have read "Tangents" before you came here. Check out my last post on James' thread on "Kansas City ANA".
