I am almost too ashamed to post my "common" notes compared to these GEMS.

It's not a new acquisition, but since I am going to be parting with it soon;

don't mind me asking, but why are you parting with it?

Fuzzy,
I have about 200 "bills" that I am converting from "everything" to a "type" collection like I did with my coins, keeping the best and parting with the rest...and putting the proceeds toward my 7070.

This is my lone "Saddle Blanket".

I picked these up today when I went to get some coins. I am still getting used to collecting paper so I am still a little off on what to keep or sell/return to bank.





These are a couple of the $2 I got and an old Canadian tire voucher I have had for years and pretty much one of the oldest paper I have.

I'm so jealous of the wonderful vintage bills most of you have. I wouldn't even know where to look for one let alone afford one.





The fancy serial numbers are what really gets me confused sometimes even though I have books and the internet. I swear I stare at the bills trying to make sure I didn't miss some combination that is a keeper but I will get better so bear with me and I can always use some feedback from the experts.









Some pictures are scanned and some are taken with the camera because the fives, twenties and hundreds won't scan which sucks because the picture is not as clear.






The hundred has the "United States of America" bleeding through from the obverse and some partial serial number and the state seal. It is visible but not a thick bleed through mostly a imprint especially on the united states part.







The hundred dollar bill I was going to put away for bills but then I saw that it looked like it had some bleed through from the obverse to the reverse, 3rd printing I think. I'm really not sure if it can be seen in these pics but once I upload them here they may look better.

Some great notes there and jut a few question here (I need a little educating on US notes)

The yellow seal only apears on the Africa notes? Are they massively rare or quite affordable?

The federal reserve notes are the ones with individual locations on them, are they still issued today and whats the rarity/affordability of them?

The $500 is legal tender? I thought the largest generally circulating note was $100.

Are gold certificates worth a great deal more than silver certificates? (I am guessing the old ones are big money but the 1920's ones are affordable?)

Yes the yellow only appears on North Africa notes and they are on the higher end of affordable compared to other notes from the same time.

The FRNs are the only notes issued today, so unless they're old/special they pretty much are worth face value.

It technically still is legal tender, however the last series printed was 1934, so no longer are in use. Actually, they used to have 500, 1000, 5000, and 10,000 bills back in those days in "circulation". Even a 100,000 gold certificate, but it was only used to move large amounts of money between banks.

Silver certs were 1, 5, & 10s. While Gold certs were 10s and up. So it's kind of hard to compare them, but generally speaking they are quite a lot more.

@Andi75

Thanks for posting

I don't really see anything there worth keeping, out of the serial numbers anyway. Of course, the Canadian voucher is cool, and I personally would keep the new and sequential 2009 block L-N dollars, just because I like new notes..lol
