  1. Overseas auction sites. I never thought of that. Going to give those a gander. I hear you about the deep pockets sites. Nice notes though. Very interesting to read about.
  2. Thank you for the reply Fenntucky Mike. I do have Pierre Fricke's excellent book on Collecting Confederate Paper Money (2014). Updated from the 2008 version which I used for years. Also Mr. Tremmel's Counterfeit Confederate Currency that is very helpful as well. I have other books U.S. coins and currency too. Ebay seems to be about the best place for me if I'm cautious and patient. I do find people tend to get in a bidding frenzy and go overboard on many items. I'm disabled so I don't have a lot of money to spend and can't travel as much as I'd like but I enjoy the challenge of trying to find a decent note at a good price. Keeping an eye out for a local coin show is about my only option now as the only coin shop in town folded. Thanks for the advice and happy hunting!
  3. What have you found to be the best source of Confederate notes of mid-grade quality? I'm a poor guy so no 60's notes for me. No crumpled up, prune-like notes with missing pieces and tape either. Just respectable notes that are obviously not of the highest quality but look nice enough to display.
  4. I just created a membership and signed in myself. Got a few German banknotes as well. I find Confederate paper money and Alabama state paper money from that era interesting. A lot of history in those notes. Been to many places & a few battlefields. Always a sad, somber feeling when you remember every soldier was an American. Anyway, I plan on lurking and learning about this website. I've been picking up notes and coins for years so that price guide may be of help to me also. I hope so!
