Quote: I can tell you large size notes have taken a plunge in the last 6-8 years.
That is definitely not true as a general statement.
Some large size varieties have dropped significantly (such as the 1914 FRN), while others have been on a steady upward spiral (like Gold Certificates). Now is the time to pick up those FRNs and hold off on the gold.
one question being someone bought coffee with it and touched it , the person buying , the cashier and you have all touched the note . that means its been circulated but in near uncirculated condition correct ? if you blew it up and looked you would prob find oil from people fingers on the coin and some slight wear .
Oh yeah for sure. There are some smudges (fingerprints maybe?) on the reverse from someone/something. I guess I won't really know for sure unless I sent it in to be professionally graded whether or not this guy gets uncirculated status. That won't be for a while though.
