While I purchased 2 more slabbed notes, one is going to be used for a contest, so it won't be mine in the future. But you do have today's which is the last issue of Silver Certificates, these along with the United States notes (red seal) were the end of an era, now all we have are Federal Reserve Notes. At one time the US in small series had:
Gold Certificates
National Bank Notes
Federal Reserve Bank Notes
Federal Reserve Notes in amounts up to $10,000
United State Notes
Silver Certificates

Like every purchase we need a nice set of stamps, so today's stamped package.



As I didn't know who was on the stamp, I had to google it. Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet was an American educator. Along with Laurent Clerc and Mason Cogswell, he co-founded the first permanent institution for the education of the deaf in North America, and he became its first principal.

The note.

This is FR1255, which has a green back and a printed signature of Colby and Spinner. The 3rd issue 10 cents does not have CENTS on the note. This is the only issue without cents.






While I had one, this was one was a high grade. The 3rd issue:

As CaptainCoffee likes to pick on me as I had no star notes, I did notice that I was missing a green seal earlier date star note. So today's pick up is FR 1962-D* which is a Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (Series 1950-A) * note.

Nice adds. I also have a new addition I will post when I get a chance.
I know you are joking, but to be clear, I suggested you might want 1 (just 1) for completeness sake in your dollar small size type set. Beyond that, it's on you. I don't collect star notes myself because they just don't get me excited. I found one nice common one in circulation once, and that's all I have in my collection. Maybe I'll get a low-end large size star note at some point, just because that star is nice and BIG.

I don't know, somehow I remember you "Bullying" me into getting star notes...

JUST KIDDING

I'm like you in that * notes like "fancy" serial numbers really don't interest me.

But in this case, this was a nice pickup of a series that I really don't have. Will I get the $10 and $20 * notes? I don't know.

But sometimes you find a bargain (tomorrow's note) and you can't say no.

My last note.

I like to collect by setting a few goals and working to get the coins and notes that meet those goals and while I follow that 95% of the time, I have been known to buy low cost notes that I can see an upside with. So notes that aren't part of my collection, duplicates and even low cost slabbed notes. Today's note was a low cost bargain and while it wasn't one that I was missing it was a Hawaii note and we all love Hawaii notes.

The note:

I remember like 40 years ago when I was a youngster, the first time I saw a Hawaii note, I was like whaaaaaa? Blew my mind for some reason.
