Those are very pricey and above book value. I ended up picking up a 53 grade. Thank you though.
Banco De Costa Rica 10 and 20 Colones
Let me toss out one last star, more are on the way to be sure but here's the last of my star batch. She may not look like much kid but she's got it where it counts, she'll make .5 past light speed... or in this case, a 1934-D St. Louis $20 wide back star, a very short run, this will be the third in T&P if they ever notice it.
Nice Star pickup BTW... im jelous...
post again? why not?
I started a thread asking condition/value opinions. (http://www.cointalk.com/t223965/) Maybe this will help boost its visibility with the right crowd.... Enjoy!
SnV - I think that's a fine grade star note there, definitely uncommon to be sure. Pop shows 7 known, auction from a low of $60 on eBay a couple years to a high of $160 for it's close trinary cousin on Heritage here http://currency.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=141129&lotNo=31369 - I think the value is in between. You'll get closer to each of those values depending on where you sell it... can't tell from your moniker if you were in Marine Recon or suffer from fecal urgency...
Anyways, on to MY notes... and today's new pickup is... let me see... is two Two TWO NOTES IN ONE! I figure I should put both of these notes up and bookend their mate - I have acquired a 1928B DGS, not a spectacular example but do you ever argue with face? Nope... in the middle is the tranny twenty transitional green seal I posted a few days ago, and the other new pickup is a 1928B LGS, so this should show the color transition nicely for these seals. And that LGS sure is a looker, you know I love the limes...
Awesome example of the transition in a single series. Are there plate numbers that document where the color transitions occurred?
trying to come up with a username and my dog sat down by me.... the rest is history!!!
The executive assistant to the General Manager asked if I would stop by her office to evaluate a note her friend had inherited from her father. I told them the note was in fine to very fine condition. They then asked what do you think it is worth. I said, it depends on whether it's a FR.16, FR.16a, FR.17, or FR.17a. I sent a scan to a friend, John Spinelli, (owner CGA) and he determined it was a FR.16. The owner of the note said she was offered a thousand dollars for the note, and I told her to jump on that with both feet. She called me 3 days later and said the offer had been withdrawn, and asked if I would like to purchase the note. I offered $225 and she said OK........so here it is.
I wasn't looking for one of these, so I didn't offer as much as she might have realized at auction.......and was surprised a little when she said OK.
I totally agree -- great looking locomotive! I'm pretty sure I've seen this and the mining vignette on a stock or bond somewhere. If I can scout out companion pieces I'll post them.
Cool story, bro.
Here's a new large pickup of my own, the price was extremely right on this note too, Burke Glass is rare for Dallas and I got this for a relative song. I now have every signature for Dallas large fives, this was the last one. I'll upgrade later sure but the Glass notes aren't common at all so I'll fill that empty spot with this example for now...
