I am usually a coin guy but have a chance to get the following items. I need your best guess at the value.

1953 Blue Seal $5 silver certificate

1953 Red seal $2

1863 25ct fractional currency note

10ct American Banknote

1863 10ct fractional currency note

1862 25ct postage currency note

1929 $20 National Banknotes Central United Cleveland, 2 notes sequential

1874 25ct fractional currency note

1875 50ct fractional currency

1917 Red Seal $1

This note has a visible fold
1922 $20 Gold Certificate

Whatever you can do to help me establish some values would be appreciated.

    I'm seeing about $600 in total value here, at dealer buy prices.

    I'm valuing the two $20 nationals and $20 Gold Certificate all at about $100 each. A couple of the fractionals are pretty nice. I don't know much about the $2 red seal stars but figured them at about $25 each and a small premium over face on the $5 red seals.

    The Rushville National still looks like a good deal at $205, two hours before 7PM close.

    Update: Ended at $270 plus the premium. Still a fair price. Overall, prices seem fair without many rips or burials (outliers).

    If you don't know the value of notes like this you would be best advised to pass. I don't know the values.

    If a note is not CU, crisp uncirculated, I think value is less. I'm seeing an awful lot of creases, fraying, tears, dirt, rounded corners, etc. on some of the notes. I'd research the nicer cleaner pieces first. IMO. Peace Roy
