Colors of Money

Paper Money-U.S. | ANAStaff

We all make certain assumptions about money. We assume that there will be enough currency and coin to complete any transaction, that we can spend and receive money without difficulty or doubt, and that money will hold its value over short spans of time.

Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

This blog is about another of my Civil War bank notes. This one is a Type 62 or as they are also called a T-62. Although this one dollar bill is graded a modest VG 8 by PMG, I love it. It has a ton of wear. Used by a lot of people during a very dark period of our history. This note is from the Sixth Issue. That is an act of the Confederate government, that on March 23, 1863 authorizes the $50,000,000 be printed monthly from April 1863 to January 1864. This resulted in T-56 to T-63 notes. All the notes are dated April 6, 1863. All the notes printed as "Payable two years after a peace treaty. T-61-63 notes are marked payable 6 months after a peace treaty.

National Currency

I am not a paper money collector and know nothing on the subject. Is there a guide book on paper money such as the Red Book for coins ? What about National Currency.

Continental Currency Signers

Paper Money-U.S. | user_8633

Hello! I'm very interest in finding in-depth information regarding the Continental Currency signers (not all colonials, just Continentals)? Is there any extensive information available? I know several collectors, including myself, have some piecemeal information from what little is available, but I'd like to know more about all (or most) of the signers. Please respond to this blog or contact me directly at pbarbr@hotmail.com. Thank you! Paul

Gift of a star note

Paper Money-U.S. | Bush Bush Numismatics

Every year for Christmas our Great Grandpa hands us a ten dollar bill. Well this last year he gave us a ten dollar bill and a two dollar bill. It was so cool so I just kept looking at it. Then, my brother took a look at it and compared it to his. The only difference was mine was a star note! My brother got very jealous of the gift I received, so he tried to buy it off of me with candy and toys. When I got home that night to look to see how much my star note was worth. My particular note was worth forty dollars! And now I have a very valuable star note but I didn’t have holder for it. Now I am a coin collector but I don’t have very many paper money holders so I asked my brother for a holder, and he told me because I didn’t give him the star note he wasn’t going to give me one of his many extra holders to keep it safe. So then he put it with the rest of his notes. But finally I got my own folder so now my star note two dollar bill that my great grandpa gave me on the afternoon of Christmas Day lays in a binder of coins in its folder in a box under my dresser safe and sound and protected from the harsh environment of the outside world.

The Currency Of The EMPEROR Of The United States Of America

Paper Money-U.S. | Jonas's Coins

In today's blog, I will be talking about the currency issued by the Imperial Government of the United States, which was run by Emperor Norton the First. Before we go further, I assure you this is not a joke. PMG will grade the currency he issued. So, who is this Emperor Norton???

Below is my example of a Confederate States of America $20 note. It is classified as a Type-67 or Criswell-507. Both of these are numbers to classify all the variables of all the notes. There is also a PF number. In this case it is a PF-6. The PF number is a Fricke number system that uses 1 through the number of varieties for each type note. This Type-67 note has 42 varieties. My numbers indicate this note is a Series 3 with a Rarity of 3, meaning there is a population of 10001-50000 known. A very common note. Thought it was easy didn’t you?? One last thing. The plate position letter. “B’ for this one. That is where in the engraved plate this note was made from.
