FRN District Sets by trading $1 notes

I’ m looking for trading partners. Thought I would work on building district sets for starters. Just getting back into collecting currency, I used to collect block sets and I had a group of traders on a yahoo group called block traders many moons ago. I’ve managed to collect about 10 groups of sequential $1’s at the bank in the past few months from the 2017A series but only a few different districts. It’s pretty cost effective’ just the price of a stamp to exchange a few notes. I’m on the east coast in NC and Richmond is our most common district. Let me know if anyone has an interest.

  • I thought for sure that I could find other modern note collectors on the forum. I currently have 3 different $1 2017A districts and 2 different districts for the 2017A $2 and 2013 $2.

    @FrankM Welcome, maybe show us some examples of exactly what you collect. Show and tell works here. Good luck. Peace Roy

    Anything older that 2017?

    It is not that life is short, but that you are dead for so very long.
  • Yes, a few here and there. I am slowly working on an inventory. What did you have in mind?

  • I got lucky yesterday at the bank and picked up some new notes including a partial strap of 2017A EA block up for trade too.

    I would have to check the safe deposit box. My father was an avid FRN $1 collector.

    I've picked up several more sequential CU notes in the past couple of weeks, both $1s and $2s. If anyone is interested in making a trade for series 2017A I can share an inventory list.

  • I just picked up a strap of 2017A $2s LA block from the bank. I’m now up to 7 districts with some spare notes to trade if anyone has an interest.

    So at this point in my goal to collect a CU district set which kind of morphed into a CU block set I have collected about 20 different blocks for the 2017A series $1 FRN. Not too bad out of about 40 blocks printed, but a long way to go. I also began collecting a CU 2017A $2 district set and now have 7 districts. I’m always trying to get extra notes for trades should I find some collectors to trade with but it looks like there are barely any others working on the current 2017A series. I am visiting family this summer in New England so I will be hitting the banks for new money and in the mean time I’ll still try locally but it’s been dry. Maybe my trade lists will generate some interest.

    I got a mixed strap of CU $2s today. Not sure how that happens but first half of the strap is BAs and 2nd half of the strap is EAs. Just happens to be what I have gotten before so nothing new here. Also found out my favorite teller at the bank is leaving, too bad she always kept an eye out for me. Just a shout out for anyone collecting series 2017A either $1s or $2s looking to make a trade of a few notes.

  • I’m still looking to make trades. I’m almost done with the 2017A $1 block set, still need about 6 more blocks to finish. I’m still working on the 2017A $2 district set. I’m looking for the $2 Philadelphia and Atlanta districts to finish. Next I guess I’ll start on a 2021 district set although I have yet to see this series in circulation. Anyone that wants to trade CU notes just shoot me a message.

    Update! The $2 2017A district set is completed. I am also almost done with the $2 2013 district set, still need the C,G and J districts. The difficult set is the 2017A block set. I only need 3 more blocks to complete the set. They are the FI, KC and LG. I haven't seen any of these blocks in CU condition and not even in circulated condition. I have extra notes so please reach out if you would like to make any trades.
