Bought this set at garage sale.

As the title suggests, I bought this set of notes at a garage sale for $40. The signatures looked to be in genuine ink and already in protective sleeves. Did I get a bargain or blindsided? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Each note appears to be genuine and you did great!

    Yeah, you got a great deal for $10 a note. Usually when this type of stuff is found in such a venue it tends to be reproductions that even the sellers have no clue as to their authenticity.

    That sure beats the broken chainsaws and unused exercise equipment I see at garage sales :D

    Amazing find at a garage sale - maybe the guy thought that word on them was "COUNTERFEIT" - LOL!

    You got about $100-$150 worth of notes for $40.

    It would be nice if we could all do that more often.
