  6. Very nice note Dave. Thanks for the synopsis as well.
  7. Great question; Simply put, the "Columbian Bank Note Co" was contracted to produce the note. from engraving the plates to printing it. On Issues that precede that issue, it was the "National Bank Note Co; NY that produced the notes. 1/2 Cotton 1/2 Linen

  10. Greetings friends...another fractional "Walker" Fr#1308 in Gem to share with you all. It is a pleasure for me to share this example with you. (this note is part of the 4th and 5th Issue's in my collection) Chow... 1/2 Cotton 1/2 Linen Here is who he was.... "When Robert J. Walker (1801-1869) was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by President James K. Polk in 1845, he had already established himself as a supporter of an independent treasury system and an apostle of free trade. His first concern as Secretary was the establishment of the Independent Treasury System of 1846, w
  11. Well for me I started out by locating metal money boxes. I have 1 box for each denomination from $1 thru $100. Inside the box are silica gel packs (rechargeable) and the majority say 60% or more of my notes are graded, the raw notes are in mylar sleeve's. I have them in Series order. The metal boxes are then stored inside my safe with several boxes of silica gel and my gold, silver and platinum hoard. There you have it. Any other methods that you guy's use that may present a better measure of protection? Please advise...... 1/2 Cotton 1/2 Linen

  13. F.E. Spinner (Francis) 10th Sec of the Treasury Server Under the "Lincoln Administration" Some interesting facts of the 10th Sec of Treasury! Did any of you know this about him? The job of fighting counterfeiting continued during the Civil War. At that time, the government took over the printing of currency from private banks and printers to standardize the design of the money, which was quickly dubbed "greenbacks." On July 17, 1861, Congress passed the first federal law authorizing the U.S. Government to issue paper money. At that time, Frances Spinner was serving as Treasure
  14. Hello and Thank you everyone for replying. What some nice notes you have See 323! San Miguel...nice web note..indeed they are hrad to find. A question for each of you is "What inspired you to collect what you currently have"? How long has it taken to get to where you are at? How do you get the enlarged images on your post's? The one I put on is tiny compared to what you posted. Thanks...and keep them coming! I have a Dallas FRN $50 with the following SN# 01688601* and 5 others that follow it in numerical order. They are of course Gem Crisp. 1/2 Cotton 1/2 Linen
  15. I am wondering if anyone here is collecting the small size US Federal Reserve notes? If so, what area interest you and why? If you care to be specific by all means do so. Do any of you specialize in Series? Anyone trying to collect a specific Federal Reserve Branch complete series of Notes? Post some pics and what got you interested in these notes. Provide details of what you think of the older currency from the new modern printings. As an example the Series of 1928 numeral notes-vs- the 1928 A letter notes. What quality differences do you see? Ink colors, signatures and informatio

  19. Hello Collectors... I for one am fascinated by truly fine examples of the fractional currency. Post your best pieces and let's talk about Sec of Treasury for each series.

  21. Hello to all. I am a new fourm member, however, not new to collecting. I prefer to collect fine currency at AU55 or better only. I also collect USA and some Foreign Au, Ag and Pt. I have a un-registered APE set of American Eagles from 1997 to present. I look forward to some stimulating conversation/posting on paper and specific coins. 1/2Cotton 1/2 Linen
