Very nice... but do not tell Hamilton that Jackson stole his "photo op"...

@MEC2 post. Well done sir.
These Boston replacement notes went unreported from the BEP. This pair has even, broad margins and that “new currency” smell.
Today's new pickup was an impulse buy. I have a weakness for Dallas and for LGS notes, so I had to give in and get this one, a 1934 LGS $10. Don't judge...

I picked up a copy of "National Bank Notes" 6th Edition by Don C. Kelly, published in 2008. I expect the prices to be only possibly a guide to scarcity. The book is voluminous, with a historical background on the men who pioneered the collecting of the notes, with a great deal of additional information on the printing sequences, serial numbering, Treasury Dept actions, and even counterfeits. There is also a CD of a census that terminated several years ago, but should be still of value for the number of each note of interest to buyers, as it should be a clue as to value: ie whether a note is in the hundreds or thousands, or, even unique. It is more handbook, then just a catalog. He also gives background on the various other publications, discussing what is actually covered in them. Expensive for a spiral bound book, but 510 pages of quality info plus the CD. I'm content at the moment, and, since the pages lie flat, I could scan and print the pages for MA and not always be working with a fairly heavy and awkward book.
I assume you're familiar with the book??
Yes, a very popular book amongst National Bank Note collectors.
I'll post the items that may be of interest when they arrive. Spent more then I should have, but it'll work out.. Interesting lots in next weeks Civil War auction. Yes, I'm bidding. I was the co-producer of the reprint of Laurence's "Civil War Patriotic Covers", and wrote the included value listings which inspired many new sales. That was way back in 1975.
Thank Heavens I don't feel a need to join the NBN Census organization. I have a disc of the 2008 census that came with the Kelly book, but haven't been able to access the file within Windows 10.. It's well OOD, as the collecting of these is getting stronger daily. Looking for mainly banks in a county is almost affordable, so it will only increase, as far as I can see. My acquisitions will be available in my estate, possibly from a dealer, possibly at auction. I mention this as I'm 85 on June 12th...
