I can't offer any input on price, sorry, but I do agree that she's a beauty!

Wow, what a nice note!

Heritage sold a 64 EPQ in January for a little over $2k. They also sold a 64 for $1800. Greensheet bid on it is $1450. Since it's such a desirable note, you probably won't be able to get it close to bid. With the EPQ at $2k, I think $1600-$1800 is fair. Regardless, it looks like a very nice note.

Super note.

I agree with CoinCollector2012 and would feel comfortable buying it for under $2K.

When recently shopping for a Battleship, one of my parameters was original paper, regardless of the grade. It appears to be in a newer PMG holder so there must be a reason it did not merit the EPQ designation. Beautiful note.

That $2 Battleship sure is nice. I was just looking at one in a currency book last night and thinking how it would be nice to snag one of those.

Iconic note for sure. Hold out for the PQ designation.

I must add that, paper quality aside, that certainly looks like 65 centering.

Maybe squashed in a book or ironed?

I am guessing U.S.S. Texas.
Would that be right?

From David Q. Bowers Whitmans Encyclopedia of US Paper Money; " On the back is what was intended to be a generic dreadnaught fighting ship-that is, not a specific vessel. Named after states, dreadnaughts were objects of great pride. While it was felt best not to show a specific one or reveal the name, the image was taken from the 27,000-ton USS New York, commissioned in April 1914."

Ah-ha!, I was close to being right!

I suggested U.S.S. Texas, because it was (still is) one of a two ship class of dreadnought battleships. U.S.S New York was the other ship in that class.

U.S.S. Texas currently still lives, as a museum ship.
