    I get the Tubbman but this design is way better and more pertinent to our history.

    We have already done something similar with the 1899 $5 Indian Chief note. We put the full feathered headress of his enemy on his head because it looked better than the single feathered one of his tribe. It was really quite an insult.

    This wasn't our history so I'm not sure how it's pertinent at all.

    I like the design. I would hope it was accurate. The above pics are from the actual tribe; I would venture to guess they are accurate.

    I’ve read this before. You would think that if the U.S. started issuing $500 and $1,000 notes again, they wouldn’t have any possible collector value until many years after being issued. I’m guessing in 20 years, inflation might negate any possible profits.

    Yes I hear that, just was thinking of the collector in the future, best wishes

    I can't help but see Ben Franklin as a Native American with hair in both of these portraits. If they are NOT Ben Franklin, then they are most certainly pertinent. Maybe it's just an illusion because I'm expecting to see Ben. I don't understand Ben as a Native.

    Hey there, I hate doing this here- but could you check your PM's? I have a question about an item you got quite awhile back that's of particular interest to me.

    Nice

  • Hey to all,
    I will put my choice in the line:
    Use all of the notes without regard to the denomination to some degree and base the choices on acts that benefit society as a whole.
    Jim Thorpe, Harriet tubman, Rosa Parks, Tecumseh, thurgood Marshal, et....
    later,
    there is a iriad of good choices.
