There are some links in this thread, with pics to various stamps found on notes. Check it out: Strange pyramid on $20 bill.
But on the other hand, you probably did well stacking, enough that could reinvest in the collectibles now. :yes:
A great old thread! With hilarious commentary and the famed, now extant, Elaine! LOL!
I rallied for this coin for a long time. Many ignored it and lots of people said it would be a looser, a...
Eh...! I thought I had been posting. :eek: :D
There's not really much to get overly excited about, yet, and everyone seems to know what's up or, rather what's down.
Sage is good for purification... Thyme-ing is good for investments and this is not a time for panicked buying.
Then again, she often came off as a gold digger, so if you say there's gold in Central Park, she's probably there with a shovel already looking for it. LOL! Nice to hear from you to...
Elaine's bull... market finally burst, we haven't heard from her in quite, quite some time.
I'm not sure about the order of printing. Maybe someone else will know those details.
Ken, I think you (almost) hit the nail on the head. 'what the collector demands'... It's important to consider, are folks collecting or are they consuming?
At least in this current era, the U.S....
You should rule out 'shrinkage' for the reason I gave before, not because of any measurement of printed design features.
Sometimes dies are re-engraved and the design elements are often only...
While paper can (and does) shrink (occurring during the paper-making phase prior to the printing phase of production), a printed design doesn't shrink after it's been printed. So you can rule that...
Some nice pics from the Smithsonian coin collection! (an old CT thread)
National Numismatic Collection of the Smithsonian Institution

This series has steadily declined from a...
Hello, here's some info on a couple of the vignettes appearing on these new BEP souvenir cards:
PEACE - Left oval vignette
Large Size note: $10 Interest-Bearing Notes of 1863 (Act of March 3...
ANA Dealer Directory search by state, etc.
I noticed the same thing, Joe. Maybe it's a 'watermark' to protect the rights of the image. ;)
Yes, let's see, the Mint releases them earlier in the year, gets its customers to think (= feel/react) exactly what you've just expressed, then as the last quarter of the year rolls around, they'll...
Nah, this is par for the course. They're hardcore practicing hucksters, and have been for a good long while already. These sort of concocted coins are the results of marketing research studies,...

What'll they think of next!
Haven't we already an odd ongoing experiment with the 5 ounce silver America the Beautiful coins bearing a .25¢ denomination. :smile
Hey guys, Happy New Year! I'm still out here and continue to mind my thread subscriptions when there's something new posted. I've just been a busy-bee with other things that don't allow for as much...
:smile Thanks. I've just been busy at life with much less chance to come to the forum lately. I still enjoy collecting, learning about numismatics and reading threads I've subscribed to here.
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. +1 about the red-brown version. Purple has an interesting appeal as well.
