Heavily used circulated notes (some knucklehead used tape to repair them a very long time ago)

1891 Silver Certificate Note




1899 Silver Certificate Note

Collecting since 1972. Learning from then on

These are practice MPC notes that Disbursing Officers and clerks would have used to practice working and paying out MPC notes in the field. They could use these without having to account for them if any mistakes were made while training. They appear to be printed around 1964 and if you look closely at the "obligation" section it says they are for use in "accordance with the rules of Monopoly"!
Very interesting!

Glad to see folks posting here again.
Maybe not traditional numismatics, but the pseudo military money is interesting. I guess in '64, they actually had to practice handing out money properly. I retired from active duty a little over 2 years ago, so I always enjoy stuff like this. I remember the first pair of boots I was issued had an Army pamphlet (instructions) attached explaining how they were to be used.
The Martha and black eagle notes are such classics, you gotta love 'em...but they are pretty rough indeed.

I haven't been able to find/purchase any of the banknotes I'm really looking for (large size and fractional) in the last couple months. Everything seems to be going for quite a bit over what I'm expecting lately...and I'm a real cheapskate at heart.
I never collected obsolete currency before, but had the opportunity to buy some notes at (what I think are) very reasonable prices, so I'm dipping my toes. It has been interesting researching an learning about these notes. Here's the first one.

I have looked at a few on HA, but have not bitten. I have so little experience with colonial notes in-hand, that I would not be comfortable buying a raw note. The certified notes at auction recently have all gone for more than I'm willing to pay at the moment.

I actually attempted to purchase the red overprint at the same time as this note, but failed. Since then, I also attempted to buy a matching $1 and $2 green overprint note, but failed there as well.

Here is another New Jersey note one if anybody is interested.

Not much love for Jersey? How about Texas? This is certainly the most desirable of my limited obsolete note collection. The thin paper makes these very difficult to scan, so I have to go with a photo. 1839, cut cancelled.
