    Back in July I was under the impression I may not be around this fine Earth much longer.
    After several surgeries, depression, loss of interest in most things....I received news last week that treatments were working!

    I thought I would celebrate and share with you 3 notes I picked up and 2 of them were purchased today.
    What a lift this brought to me and I once again opened the currency book to mark these 34C's as owned.

    The NY Note is the "finest known" and holds a special place in the collection.. (My Doc is from NY)
    The Phillie and Chitown Star was added today as a celebration to perhaps a New Year and New Life so to speak.

    As I get better I will try to be around more....I have started light physcial workouts to rebuild my strength and attitude.

    I hope you enjoy the notes! :)

    Thank you!
    Before I learned of my situation I was building a 34C Set as well for $5, $10 and $20's outside of the New York Collection.
    The Stars are difficult to locate as you well know.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Rick, I am very pleased to see you here again - your shared knowledge and enthusiasm for paper money are very admirable. Also pleased that you are there for your family too. The whole SEG presentation stuff has really sparked some serious researching on my part to find out more about the engravers that created the treasures we collect - and I admit I have been buying original artwork created by GFC Smillie.

    You hang in there and get that collecting bug back to full-time status! This is a fantastic thread to find today!

    I am quite overjoyed to have you around CT again, and those are some fantastic looking pick ups... only the finest notes for one of the finest guys! :thumb:

    Awesome to hear your doing well RickieB! :D
    Nice notes too. Speaking of 34C's, somebody paid me with a '34-C $10 at the store the other day. Its not nearly as nice as those though. :)

    I just don't hang around here like I used to but SO glad to hear you're on the mend my friend.
    As for light physical therapy might I suggest some curls with high grade notes in your hands? Start with a few and work your way up. You have the material.

    Stay well.

    Rickie, it is great to see you back on CT line. One question to you,

    On your 1934 star note, the title says 1934 C.

    Should the wording be 1934 G (as in Chicago issue) ?

    WOW! Great news to hear your getting back on the CT boards again. There were an awfully big pair of empty shoes here when you left.
