  1. How about writing about the history of paper money in the US starting with continental and colonial currencies, confederate currency, and obsolete bank notes. Then discuss how the government started issuing paper money in 1861 and The different types of banknotes such as fractional currency, legal tender, demand notes, silver Certificates, gold certificates, national bank notes, federal reserve notes, federal reserve bank notes, etc. and the two different size notes. This information is intriguing and you may find it fascinating and become a currency collector.

  2. Outstanding, thanks. That answers my question. I have numerous notes that were graded when PMG started grading and all have very low control numbers. All notes are GEM, but no EPQ designation and I find it hard to believe that these notes were altered.
