I just think serial number 10's on $10's are pretty cool. Plus I like the phrase We the People and the Liberty torch on each side of Mr. Hamilton.



Ok everyone, your audience is waiting. Let's see some notes!

    Bought this on the Bay. Very pleased with the condition, although PCGS seems to have under-graded it IMO. Not sure why it's "about new" either.



    The obverse centering is excellent and the reverse is good. Overall, the note looks as good as CHCU 63. Regardless, this is my second 0000000X single digit note. First one was from Max.



    Your opinions are welcome. Is this worthy of a breakout and re-submit to PCGS or PMG for an upgrade?

    I suppose this MPC considering it only cost $1 in a 'bargain box' and I bought it because it was a radar; not because I collect MPC which I don't. It was always just 'a nice note' until I posted it here and several members asked if I would part with it. It's now a treasured note.

    And I have to post this one because I actually said NO to Grover Criswell (rest in peace) when he tried to buy it from me at a Memphis show years ago. It's # 27883r (R7) in the Guy Kraus book on Mississippi obsoletes and scrip.

    Very nice note, and certainly NOT a 58. I see a lot of PCGS 58's that should have gotten (and almost always do if resubmitted elsewhere) a much higher grade. IMO, you should have no problem getting at least a 64 on that note.

    Here's one that makes me smile for the story behind it.

    This a $2 obsolete note from the Bank of Granville in Ohio, circa 1860 -- it's actually a reprint, part of ABNCo's American Paper Money Collection. But since the bank never actually opened, this proof may be the only way we get to see it.

    The central vignette, titled "The Mechanic," was engraved by Lorenzo Hatch and W.W. Rice. It shows something called a pendulum governor or fly-ball governor. This device was attached to an engine (you can see the belt at the top) to govern its speed. It spun on its shaft with the weights acting as a brake to prevent the engine from racing out of control. The faster it spun, the further out the fly-balls extended. At top speed the weights spun all the way out to their limit.

    And that, friends, is the true origin of the term "balls out."

    While not worth much, I really love this 1777 4 Shilling note, because it was the first Colonial I ever bought, and I bought it because it was printed by John Dunlap. Being a history buff, I knew that John Dunlap was the man who printed the original 200 copies of the US Declaration of Independence! So, it does make me smile - not for the monetary value, but for the historical value. :smiley:
