Yeah, right tc.

Okay, my turn....here is 1934 Star.... 7,680,000 printed.....84 known today.



I like that big blue '1' opposite the over sized blue treasury seal.

Does your note have the In God We Trust motto on the reverse?


No, alas it is the run of the mill version. I also have 12 other silver certs ALL that I got in circulation, never paid more than a dollar for one. Surprisingly several of them are in VG condition and 2 are awesome including a 1935E.

Some notes I really want and will probably end up buying are some of the WWII notes and I have always wanted a "funny back".

"(probably) end up buying" ? If you haven't already found them in circulation, I would have to say that your time is running out.
I would have to agree with you though, I really like the yellow seals and blue numbers (more so than the brown).

Known population : Hawaii...95 North Africa....60.

I meant probably end up buying as in paying the sickening rate someone is asking for it. No, if I haven't found it by now in circulation I doubt I ever will. But as long as there are kids, Dad's notes will always find a way into circulation.

On that last note: My ex-wife had (years back) two young boys. I kept all of my old coins/currency in my dresser drawer. One day I came home from work and saw a trail of coin leaving my bedroom. Yes all of my collection was gone. I followed the bread crumb trail to a stash under the youngest one's bed and when I located him his pockets were bulging.

The next day I was telling that story to my co-worker and he said something that stopped me in my tracks, "aren't you glad he doesn't have access to the outside world yet?".

I went out and bought a safe that day.

Great story. Well told. I like stories just as much as pictures. I have neither kids or spouse, so I revel in my security and independence.

Yes but I don't have $5 star notes to share.

Neither do I....but I do have a twenty. This has deteriorated into a star thread, so I am just posting stars of any denomination or size.

Ooooo, it is almost a 'trinary' too. I guess this would be a quadnary? Known population: 15.

There are several WWII notes on the "Post Numismatic Items You Want To Sell Here" forum right now.

Since nobody else wants to post pictures of their notes, I will continue singularly.

Known population: 64

(Raises hand) I have a question, how do you know how many there are extent? I have quite a few star notes, mostly aces ($1), over the decades, I am going to keep the best types and release (into collectors hands) the rest. I am going to focus on quality types versus quantity (like I am doing with my coins).

There are a number of individuals and companies that provide censuses. Martin Gengerke authors a census of large size notes in his "Paper Money Records", but now I believe it is available only in DVD format that can be updated.

Track and Price is an online census of both large and many small size notes and the thing that I like about it is that it provides consistently higher population numbers than any other census that I have found. (Higher numbers equates to higher sense of realism to me). Serial numbers are also listed.

I am fairly realistic in my notion that no census data is entirely correct, and many will rise over time, but for right now, I go with what is known by those who specialize in the field by compiling and listing notes by serial number.

The known population figures that I use are from Track and Price. Some figures change over time, and some of the rarer notes remain at a constant population.

Below is a 1914 FRN star that has remained at a known population of 7 for at least the past seven years. I doubt that more will be found. Yes it is in very ratty condition, but it is what it is....a very rare note.
