I've long been putting together my collection of mostly VF large size notes, and with the acquisition of the Martha note, Fr 221, I'm getting pretty close to what you could call a $1 type set of large size notes.

What should be my next addition?. It might be a while, since I only buy notes when I think I'm getting a really good deal, but options are:
1. Earlier Washington US note (1869-probably cost prohibitive, 1874, 1875, 1880)
2. 1923 red seal (my current most likely choice and cheapest remaining note)
3. Martha plain back or large seal
4. Stanton fancy back

Great notes! a series 1869 $1 Rainbow note would cap it all off. Or an 1890 Mcpherson Coin note.

The bison and indian notes are a must have. Also, large size gold certs would be nice to have. That is, if you care to move to other denominations other than the $1. If not, then the 1923 red seal is the obvious choice. Best of luck.

You're missing the same $1 note that I am.

A first series $1 National Currency note.

I'm in agreement, and in the same boat as DoubleEagle20. Your assortment of notes look cool, all grouped together. Thanks for sharing.

Agree, the next step is the 1923 LT. Great set so far!

Probably the easy choice based on what I've got and the $$.

This might have been my first choice, but budget may force my hand to go elsewhere.

Outside of the $1 notes, I am certainly looking for a 1906 $20 gold cert (I have the 1907 and 1922 $10 notes and 1922 $20 note).

There's one coming up in June on Heritage as part of the Mike Coltrane collection that would go perfectly in this group (VF35). I'll definitely be putting in a low ball bid and hoping for a miracle.

Fortunately, I have that one already...but in the same quality range as these notes, not CU.
