Just stumbled across some stuff about which i know nothing.

First, a 1922 $10 gold certificate. Could you help me with a valuation? Yes, I know it is in rough shape.
I have no interest in it, just want to get a fair price. I did find a couple on Ebay.


(Sorry about the shadow across the photo.)

Second, several circulated $5 Series A / B / C 1950 Federal Reserve Notes. Are these worth any premium?

    My guess on the gold certificate is about $50.

    The $5 FRNs might be worth a premium if in higher grades or are scarce blocks or plate combinations. If you post scans of these others can offer more info. but be sure to include face and back plate numbers.

    Collector and dealer in obsolete currency. Always buying all obsolete bank notes and scrip.

    These are certainly not higher grades, but here are photos. No crazy serial numbers, but are they better ones?/ Worth more than $5?
    Your opinions (or offers) are welcomed!

    So far as the $5 notes are concerned, if offered to me my buy price would be $5 each. Condition, condition, condition.

    All glory is fleeting.

    People who think they have something special, have to ask themselves how collectible they are and whether the owners will want to share their recent finds with pride with other collectors?
