The title of this thread is Post Your New Currency Acquisitions.

This was actually one of my first purchases or a gift or maybe I won it in a contest...I'm not entirely sure. What I do know is it's the only 1969C $5 note I own and it's not fancy or rare or a star or expensive and if I would have bought it raw it would still be not graded. It's so fantastically random I thought I would ask here to see if someone sees something I don't.

Nice additions coinfun. A 5 note run of consecutive 1976 $2 star notes.

I'm guessing these were held captive for almost a year before being graded and returned.

Predicting future rarities is best left to the pros but I like trying my hand at this by viewing totals. This chart indicates the JF* with 640K printed as the lowest. PMG shows 9 graded. The chart also shows the JK-B with 6.4M printed. PMG has graded 0 of these. Why the difference ? Everyone is looking for stars.



The JC-B also shows 6.4M printed with 0 graded at PMG. I know it's very possible that several collectors have these notes but don't consider them candidates for grading. With that being said, the only value in having something nobody else has is having something everyone wants. I'm still searching for an UNC example of the JC-B.

I'm a weirdo and here's my JK-B note.

Nice group of Remainders harley.

Why the BEP waited 20 years after introducing 1976 $2 FRNs to the public is a mystery to me. Series 1995 $2 FRNs are a very short series. Printed in late 1996 for four months and limited to the Atlanta District exclusively. Special low serial numbered star notes were printed for all 12 districts and released for collectors, but none for circulation. Block F-A is relatively easy find but not so much for the F-B block.

IMHO it's really not that much of a mystery. As you know, the BEP prints currency in response to Federal Reserve orders. Demand for deuces is pretty low (pretty much nonexistent) so the Fed didn't order any more for 20 years after the flood of bicentennial notes released (575M 1976 notes printed. The average order size since then has been about 160M notes and the latest order in 2019 was for 153.6M notes).

The last of the $2 LTNs were delivered to the Fed in July 1965 (and less than 4M notes were printed), so there was an 11 year break before they ordered the 1976 FRNs. A 20 year break after such a large order seems pretty reasonable to me.

The 1995 deuce I have in my type set is an FA. And looking at my spreadsheet, I still need to add a 1995 deuce star. Hmmmm... This should be a relatively easy series to "complete" as it would only take 5 notes.
