Which note would you rather have?

Which do you see as more desirable?

And is the type II as rare as I think it might be?

    The low serial number is cool, but I'd rather have the higher grade note...

    I agree with Terry. Gimme the 58PPQ.

    Same as what @asheland said

    In terms of the appearance I prefer the 58PPQ to the 20 with lower serial but I'd need more info on printings of the Type 1 v. Type 2.

    This really is a serious question... type I - 408 sheets x 6 = 2448 notes; type II- 732 notes and not sure about the surviving population of either but I suspect the type II survival rate is lower and perhaps close to unique.

    And yes... I submitted these thinking the type II would get a 20 and the type I would get MS. I was hoping that the type one would be the consensus note for the bank and I doubt that it is.

    It almost sounds like you might be wanting to know which note is more valuable, or which note is considered more rare. I originally thought you were in the process of deciding which one to purchase, but after reading your above post, it appears you own both of them already. Maybe a member with Track & Price will see this thread and provide us with details of their sales/auction history.

    At first blush, it would seem the Type I would have greater value based on condition... but what if there are less than 3 of the Type II notes left? Or could this be the sole surviving type II note? It may not just be about the low serial number. In my mind, the type II note would be the tougher note in terms of rarity but does that make it more valuable?

    This should work... This was the best of my first submission to our host. So lets expand the question to include all three... which would you rather have?

    I'd rather have the $10 note

    Ounce by ounce the stack grows .

    Since I don’t have any ties to any of the cities shown on these notes, I would want the $10 note.

    The type 2 is much rarer. It's the second one reported and the best, the other grading fine.

    But the $10 is a better note than either $20.

    Looks like there were $10 and $20 sheets (#1-6) from Charter 7774 and the $10 sheet was cut. I presume that the $20 sheet is still intact but those singles may become available someday. Sheets get cut into singles but never the other way around.

    Most of these sheets were from the Col. Green hoard. Some were used to pay the income taxes on his estate at face value. Those were presumably destroyed but many serial #1 sheets were saved.

    The $10 note is the one I prefer. Peace Roy

  • I'd take the Type 2 $20 any day of the week. Lower print run and I love T-2s.

    I would much rather have the higher grade 58.
