The trip involved 4 tables (the last belonging to a gentleman I've done numismatic business with in the past, and trade with well) and considerable wheeling/dealing/trading up. The end result? I turned $110 into 3 MS60+ common Peace Dollars aaaand : Now...admittedly...i'm a complete novice when it comes to any paper currency. I just happen to have WANTED some confederate notes for a long time, and the day seemed to be going so well. I HAVE tried to compare them against the information found at http://www.csacurrency.com/csacur/csades.htm Certainly, the ink seems the right color, and shows definite skips in a few places. The notes have the correct colors, and the paper has the feel and smell I'd expect from older notes. Bottom line...I'm pretty pleased...I got something I'd wanted at a price i felt was below what i might have paid....and the 3 extra peace dollars kinda pad me a little against being completely ****ed by counterfeits. What do you paper currency experts think? Did I do ok, or am have I just paid a bit of a stupid tax?
