Not a currency guy but I think this is a better note based upon my research FR 755?

I know its very hard to tell from pictures but thoughts from the group would be appreciated

    A wonderful example and it seems to be in great condition. The back of the note is the Money Shot on these 1918 $2 FRBNs. The Battleship note showing the United State’s naval might. Thanks for sharing. Is it your note ?

    Not my note yet trying to do research to determine value have not had the note in hand but looks to be $1,000 plus note in anticipated condition?

    Easily worth $1,000. Even XF notes are trending north of $1,500.

    Really nice note / CPG for AU58 is $8120 for FR 755. I bet graded examples are really low pop.

    I cant tell grade from photo if it’s Unc or not. Would need c in hand. These notes in very high demand. CH CU? An XF 40 is at $2190 for CPG.

    I would definitely send in to our hosts for grading. I have handled a few but retailed my last one years ago on the bourse from my table.

    I didn't pull the trigger on buying this note and he ended up selling it for $3,400. As I'm not a currency guy I wasn't comfortable with my ability to assess the grade but maybe I should have taken chance and bought it.

    • I think its important to follow your gut instincts @wrighty: otherwise you'll have buyer's remorse. It is always very difficult to assess a note's grade simply by photographs (or scans). It's easy to 2nd guess ourselves. That's why TPG has becomes so popular (takes out the guess work).

    -I know I wouldn't be comfortable parting with that kind of money for a note (at that tough/popular level) unless it were graded. I would want "original" or "EPQ" for that kind of money too (although that might be a bit of a reach). I would settle for a lower grade (at EPQ) as long as it had similar eye appeal as the OP note.

    from the pics...a very nice looking note...scarcer Fr# also...We have been through this quite a bit but assessing note from a pic just doesn't work. The pic seems as though it's a bit too flat as if it had been pressed....ditto on spending that money based on description or pic...should have been graded a long time ago which makes me feel that there is something going on with the note.
