  1. This 100,000 Dollar Gold Certificate is the highest U. S. denomination. Only 42,000 were printed. They were used only for transactions between the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department. These notes were never issued for public circulation. When the Government stopped using them in the early 1960s, most were destroyed. Only three are known to have survived. One is housed at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, one at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and one at the Smithsonian Institute. It's illegal for a private person to own one of these notes, and none has ever been in private hands. All 42,000 were accounted for. However, I have come across several poor quality counterfeits. They seem to be originated from Asia. I received many letters, mostly from people in the Philippines, claiming they have found bundles of these notes. Some enclosed photos and even "Certificates of Authenticity". Upon close examination, the notes appear to be poor quality counterfeits. Careful reading of the wordings of these certificates turns up to be nothing more than official looking nonsense. You can read a few sample letters I received together with photos at http://nutmegcollector.blogspot.com/2010/0...34-real-or.html
  2. Can you tell the difference between a Bernhard and a geniune note?
  3. One OPERATION BERNHARD £10 1942-44 dated 18th April 1936 vf on sale at Colin Narbeth for £99.50 (USD 152.96) http://www.colin-narbeth.com/cgi-bin/world...=L&OUT=home
  4. It's Belarus P-2 1 Ruble Back
  5. It's quite common to have punch hole cancellation. Some Specimen notes are punch hole cancelled too. Recently I bought a rare St. Vincente $5 1917 note which has such cancellation.
  6. The purpose of new designs is to improve security, making it harder to counterfeit. There is no plans to redesign the $1 and $2 notes. I guess nobody bother to counterfeit these low denominations.
  7. I too see the faded bank name. Considering the poor condition of the note, the ink probably washed off.
  8. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- interesting, Tom, your's is missing 3 chops for the same years as mine. mine is very much looks like the one in the photo and the dealer had it for over 30 yrs this one is the 7 years and our are 8 years,but different chops.....you's serial numbers is different....also your printed serial # sign is way too low touching the border. ----------------------------------------------- Yours is missing the black chop under the Year Issued.

Mine is similar to these: http://www.hosane.com/upload/picS09121/s09120384-1a.jpg http://www.calgarycoin.com/reference/china/chipap02.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...00_wen-1859.jpg and all these have the other type of seal: http://www.numismondo.com/pm/chn/chnP.A4b2000CashYr41854.jpg http://www.thecurrencycollector.com/images...0_cash_note.jpg The 21 character handstamp on your note indicates for use in Kiangsu Province. I don't know the significance of the other extra chops.
  9. Don't know what the extra seal was for. Unable to read the writing on it. But the additional 21 character hand stamp on Madison's note indicates for use in Kiangsu Province. Should be Pick A5f instead of A5c.
  10. I haven't read the journal article. You have to be a member to access it online at IBNS website.
  11. I have a Hsien Feng Year 8 (1858) 2000 Cash note.
  12. Actually it's Pick A5c 5000 Cash 1858
  13. I don't trust SCWPM values. They are not reliable. The real market values are determined by how much collectors are willing to pay. I think prices realized at auctions better reflect the true values.
  14. The date is on the lower left in the front. I believe it's 2006/8/2
  15. The owner of the note insisted the star was part of the design, not drew in or stamped on later. Here are some high res images to show that the star does appear underneath the diagonal lines which form part of the notes design, clearly establishing that the star was put on the note before the design.
  16. The star seems to be embedded in the design. The regular £20 (Sir Edward Elgar) note doesn't have a star. So is this note special? Has anybody seen one like this?
