I was very blessed to pick this up at a shop today! I think it's got a shot at VF35. It is the first signature combination for the series and the face plate and back plate are both #1 how cool!!! :)

    Wow! These are my favorite types of findings! I'm envious! This is a nice note! I love strong VF/XF notes with softer folds! That's a beautiful note!

    Sweet! Them $50's are on fire....I brought 6 of them to FUN and sold them all-none of them were as nice as this note though.Hey Rob,maybe you should stay away from large size for a while......you know,to give us slower folks a chance(lol).

    Tookie, this $50 FRN qualifies for the coveted "Gem VF" grade. To make it less conspicuous, rub some grease on it, wash it up good, and then press it flat. There. Now it's a typical Large Size $50 FRN.

  • Nothing like Originality for the large banknotes... that's a NICE one you have there
