Hi guys,
Before heading to work, I checked out a pretty decent Show. In Tinley Park, IL.
Sold a couple items and bought a couple.
Here are the 2 interesting items I picked up.
2 Crisp Star Notes, "Barr Notes".




Just Beautiful!
Talking about Beautiful.
2003 1 Onza Libertad!
Doesn't this look like a Proof?




PL at least, right?

    Not so much the fields, sure, but those Cameo appearances.

    Soon, when I get a chance.
    The Lib will get a bath!
    ;)
    Then, it should REALLY POP!

    “Lib” may have had a few too many “baths” already. The fields have that dull look from having been dipped multiple times.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Hmmm? Really, you think? 🤔
    You could be right?
    Unless, it's an "Antique?"

    Funny?
    I just went on Ebay to search for the 2003 Libertads, like I have. They ALL have that same Cameo like appearance! Along with the dull looking fields.
    Hmmm?

    What is the significance of the "Barr" notes?

    He was Secretary of the Treasury from December 21, 1968 to January 20, 1969. Notes with his name were heavily hoarded because people thought they would be rare since he was in office for only a month. They are quite common because of the hoarding.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I decided NOT to dip it!
