I prefer coins and notes that have seen some circulation. I think it adds to the history.
What is there to stop you? Overall, the 1914 $5, $10, $20 blue seal Federal Reserve Notes aren't all that cost-prohibitive. If I recall correctly I only paid $130 for both notes back in 2011.
$130 is rather cost prohibitive for me, my friend I really like that $20 though.
Back when I was 11 years old, that is where most of my accumulated birthday money went.
When I was 11 I certainly wasn't thinking about coins/bills unfortunately. Now I have a wife, 2 dogs, 3 kids, 4 cats, and a house to worry about. My budget is pretty limited.
I got this from my grandfather 25 years ago.
That’s where the true value lies.
I can certainly thank my grandfather for fostering my interest in numismatics at that age.
Wow. That is a great memory to have. If it were mine, I'd send it to PMG to be encapsulated, not caring about a grade, and then frame and hang it for all to see. When they asked me about it, I'd relate the story of how and why grandpa gave it to me.
@Bradley Trotter, what are we seeing on your $10 note, just below Mellon’s signature ? Is that light spot on the note or the sleeve ?
If I recall correctly @SteveInTampa, that would be the remains of a sticker the dealer had on the holder.
Edit: These photos are rather old. A few months after I took these pictures, I sent these notes off to PCGS Currency as part of the membership voucher I received for my 16th birthday.
