Wondering How I Did?

    I recently purchased 4 consecutive 1923 silver certificates (FR 238) with 3 graded Choice About New (58) by PCGS and 1 graded Choice About New (58) Apparent given a very slight rust stain (paper clip) on the face of the Note.

    Let's have some fun (or not). . . Before I spill the beans on price, what would you pay for these Notes?

    I'll bite, $360.00 for the set of 4.
  7. I'll go $280 for the set. I adjusted my price down when I saw they were not PPQ.

    Fr. #'s 237 and 238 are so plentiful in problem free examples, with not much of a premium put on notes being consecutive, I would venture to guess between $245 and $275 for the lot of 4.
  9. I would say $ 40.00 each as I don't usually buy notes in plastic, or if I do I don't pay for the plastic. Maybe $ 175. tops.
    I am having a hard time seeing the paper clip rust stain so I may be way off on this.

  10. I must be a sucker because I paid more than $40 for some XF 1923 $1s (which I maybe since I am still pretty new at this). Where can I get real AU 1923 $1s for $40 each?
  11. Try Coin shops, I've found that most Coin dealers don't know much about currency and sometimes very good deals can be found.

    Those notes may be worth more to some because there sealed in plastic, but like I said, I don't buy plastic. As to them having a premium because of them being consecutive, I've never found that to be true, but if anyone is into that kind of collecting I have a lot of consecutive notes that I'll sell off at single price, but you will have to buy two of them.

    I'd be interested in knowing what you have/want to sell.

    As for price. . . Yes, please show me 1923 AUs at $40/each. I'll gobble 'em up.

    Steve in Tampa guessed correctly. . . $275 for the set.

  13. Well I just cant pull them out of thin air, you have to look for them, and not every coin shop will have currency.

    As to what I have, lets start with these:
    1934 - 125.jpg

    Or if you don't do $ 100.'s I have 1's, 2's, 5's, etc. It would be better if you post your want list in the propper section of the fourm, I'll take a look at it and get back to you.

    Edit to add that they are all CU.

  14. Bill your attachment isn't working. I think the tough part is many people's experience suggests nice AUs sell in the $65-$85 range and more is often asked. I had an experience where I bought a particiularly nice XF for $35 at the National Money Show. I was looking for another of similar quality and had a dealer offered me $55 for the one I had. I ended up paying $45 for an XF that wasn't quite as nice just to get 2 fairly comparable for my nephews. I had spent a month plus looking for 2 AUs before the show in the $55-$65 range and I had zero luck. So to hear that $40 would be the benchmark price is surprising for me. My Redbook lists 40 EFs at $55-60. But again I am still learning.
  15. Hi starbux,
    I just re loaded the scan and now it seems to be working, don't know what happened.
    Yes, you do have to work at finding the deals, I think if all it took was money then anyone with a pocket full could buy what they want. A lot of notes can be bought at good prices but it does seem that when they are sealed in plastic they will sell for a bit more, when I buy notes I buy them as raw notes and price them that way even if they are in plastic.
