While my main focus has (and will continue) to be coins, Iíve recently though about picking up a few large size notes. I love the artwork on the older notes, but I canít decide what types to get. I really like the woodchopper series, but are there any other nice, affordable, large size types out there?

You picked a good time to be in the market. In my opinion, itís presently a buyers market.

The entry level large size note is the 1923 Silver Certificate Ace. Many can be found in virtually every grade.
If buying online, I highly recommend buying a graded note. And if I took it one step further, Iíd recommend finding an example with great eye appeal and original paper (EPQ or PPQ). Years back, I bought an Fr.224. Itís the iconic Educational Ace. The note I bought has massive eye appeal, but does not have original paper. So now Iím trying to upgrade to a VF/XF note with EPQ/PPQ. Do your homework, be patient, and buy something you really like. Stay away from bargain problem notes.

Thanks for the advice Steve. I love the educationals, but they are a little over what I want to spend at the moment. Iím just looking to get my feet wet.

Every large note collection has to have a black eagle.

Yes, Black Eagles are very affordable in medium-circulated grades, as are Sawbucks ($1 USNs), Green Eagles ($1 FRBNs) and $5 FRNs. The 1922 $10 Gold Certificate would be my first choice in a nice VF grade if you can spend in the low $300s.

I think these are undervalued, if you can find them. Much rarer than price would suggest.

Indeed they are, but I think the OP is looking for more affordable entry-level notes!
