    Thanks for the information Sir. I have an older Paper Money of the United States book but it doesn't get into too much detail about these ODD issues...

    My wife claims "obsessed." I don't know if that's better or worse than "out of control," ha.

    How much was it?!?! Nice note. Looks like quite a piece of history. I'm getting bored of the modern currency, we need some old fashioned artwork/designs that looked cool.

    Well, it's offcenter, think I paid around $30 for it.

    Take Care

    So Bonedigger..do you see what I mean..I posted a new purchase and our Pal :hug:, DeOrc comes right back at us with well a few more are coming in...so you know that when he says a few more he is talking about many note's right...:thumb:
    It is tough trying to follow this currency-a-holic.. :eat:LOL (great respect intended) so for the most part I have accepted defeat and will just sit back and watch the beautiful notes he add's to one of the finest collections I have ever seen..:bow:

    So Ben, lets take it all in and perhaps we persuade DeOrc into letting us know the formula for getting raises at work to support the addiction!LOL....oh my Goodness did I say that addiction word??
    Whoops I meant to say chronic addiction...LOL

    We admire ya DeOrc and the fantastic collection you have worked so hard to put together! Great Job..:thumb:

    I agree RickieB his (De Orc) collection is one to admire Without A Doubt, but then again I've also seen some of your collection and that one is not far behind. IMHO. :D

    Take Care
