Goldbacks - pcgs graded scans - serial numbers do not match

fcfc Posts: 12,788 ✭✭✭

Can anyone help me out by studying these pics fast? The serial numbers do not match. Can anyone help me determine if this was just a generic creation for selling purposes? Bust out your photoshop detective skills? The PCGS serial number does lookup properly, fyi, on the ones I checked.

As for first day of issue.. they could have just had an unopened package laying around to send to PCGS with the proper postmark.
I would also be curious if anyone has the pop reports handy for these. Like was everything graded 70s with no 69s or 68s?

    I have never seen these before. Will have to do some web research to understand more about them. Cheers, RickO

    Here is a blog page to start you off and an attempt to keep it more interesting for the folks here when it comes to how many were produced.

    You can obviously go to the main page to read as much as you would like.

    Turns out the NH 2020 $50 might be the rarest. But in reality they are not really that rare since nobody really collects them much. Gold bills like this are truly a novelty. I was thinking more a gift for my son who is 9 and has a "treasure box" I help him fill. I get my kicks out of putting in some serious stuff in it for him each christmas or birthday. A kilo bar of silver, 1 oz bar of gold, those pure silver lego sets that monarch makes, 1 oz bar of copper, silver eagle, assorted silver US coins, etc... Even some copper pipe and copper wire.. lol. Hey.. it has recycle value ;-)

    So these bills would be very cool since he lives in NH.
