Amazing US currency coming up for auction with pieces graded by our host.

The video (in the middle of the story) is definitely worth watching:

The world’s rarest, most valued print money collection ever assembled goes up for auction next week in Baltimore, Maryland and while the pile of cash is only worth $76,000 on paper, it’s expected to draw upwards of $30 million.

“A lot of bills the U.S. government doesn’t even have a copy of them,” Vicken Yegparian, vice president of numismatics at Stack’s Bowers Galleries, the firm holding the auction, tells FOX Business.

Sorry if it's been posted already. I looked but didn't see it.

    It will be very interesting to see what they bring.

    Fantastic collection of large size notes. Grinnell collection was the best ever by a long shot (and will never be equaled - least of all exceeded), but in modern times, for large size, this is simply unbeatable. BTW: Not graded by the host of this site - PCGS Currency has been a separate company since 2009.

    Lotsa Large size in there. My limited perception is that Large size prices are strong, so this is good timing by the seller

    Do you think the auction house will take a check? If so, I'll "buy" several.

    Nailed a #1 National in the auction tonight at a reasonable price so I'm happy.
