US Currency-Obsolete Currency
$1 Obsolete - Run of four 1875 City Warrant of Jefferson City, MO PMG ChCU EPQ
A somewhat stunning group of four "City of Jefferson" (now Jefferson City, the state's capital) dollars, these are in consistently attractive PMG 63 to 64 grades. Excellent margins and pleasing print...

1862 $1 Fr# 16 - PMG VF-20
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $1 Fr# 16 - PMG VF-20
Here is a classic example of the note that gave rise to the term "green back", the nation's first one-dollar bill. Problem-free for the grade, the edges are nicely consistent from side to side,...

1862 $1 Fr# 16c - PMG AU-58/closed pinholes
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $1 Fr# 16c - PMG AU-58/closed pinholes
The "closed pinholes" are essentially undetectable and may not matter much at the borderline AU58 grade. What will appeal is the low 3-digit serial number, along with bright, beautiful ink and...
$1,100 $1,400

1862 $5 Fr# 61a - PMG CU-62 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $5 Fr# 61a - PMG CU-62 EPQ
Absolutely beautiful in terms of color saturation and vivid presence, the razor-thin top margin appears to be all that bars a fully choice grade. A clean and consistently attractive 1862 $5 legal...

1862 $20 Fr# 124 - PMG VF-20/internal tear
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1862 $20 Fr# 124 - PMG VF-20/internal tear
When displayed flattened out within the PMG holder, the referenced "internal tear" toward the right becomes difficult to detect, making this a fair selection for type purposes. Very scarce 1862 legal...

1863 $10 Fr# 95b - PMG Net VF-25/repaired
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1863 $10 Fr# 95b - PMG Net VF-25/repaired
Skillful repairs have restored the appeal of this Lincoln portrait ten. Chittenden-Spinner signatures and rather fair color for only the VF level.
$1,500 $1,800

1869 $2 Fr# 42 - F
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1869 $2 Fr# 42 - F
While flat and a little limp, the note may still find its way into a VF holder given the relatively strong color, but we will provide a grade estimate of Fine. Centered well from left to right, the...
$850 $950

1869 $10 Rainbow Fr# 96 - AU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1869 $10 Rainbow Fr# 96 - AU
Color is crucial to the appeal of any rainbow ten, and this near-mint example features lovely brilliance and consistent saturation. The left margin is somewhat tight, but that shouldn't detract from...

1869 $20 Fr# 127 - PMG Net F-12/foreign substance, paper damage
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1869 $20 Fr# 127 - PMG Net F-12/foreign substance, paper damage
PMG notes "foreign substance, paper damage", and this is a note that altogether has seen its fair share of wear and other difficulties. Nevertheless, it IS a popular rainbow type, and will command...
$1,400 $1,600

1875 $1 Fr# 20 - ChCU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1875 $1 Fr# 20 - ChCU
A tight upper margin will bar a choice grade and may have some impact on bidder expectations, yet this is still a rare legal tender dollar, nicely preserved. The other three margins please the eye,...
$875 $975
13
1880 $1 Fr# 30 - CU
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $1 Fr# 30 - CU
The popular, large brown-seal legal tender gets nice type representation by this CU example, replete with very good margins and decent color. The extreme lower left corner seems slightly rounded off,...
$650 $750
14
1880 $10 Fr# 107 - XF
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $10 Fr# 107 - XF
A better jackass note with a large pink seal, the general quality should come in at the AU grade level. However, the margins are a bit lopsided, and some sort of staining residue slightly corrupts...
$1,000 $1,300
15
1880 $20 Fr# 147 - PCGS VF-30
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1880 $20 Fr# 147 - PCGS VF-30
Not often seen above the Fine grade level, it is a pleasure to view such a choice VF example of the 1880 Legal Tender $20. Generally bold margins, except at lower left, the paper features strong...
$650 $750

1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121 - VF
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1901 $10 Bison Fr# 121 - VF
Just about perfectly centered. Although a bit richly toned, the paper retains considerable original quality, having been once lightly pressed. Based on color variation at upper right, it appears the...

1901 $10 Bison Fr# 122 - PMG AU-58 EPQ
US Currency-Legal Tender Notes, Large
1901 $10 Bison Fr# 122 - PMG AU-58 EPQ
The paper looks just as beautiful as expected of the EPQ designation, and this is, overall, an unusually bright, original bison note, sporting beautiful cardinal red seals on the front. Centering is...

1880 $10 Fr# 288 - PMG VG-10
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1880 $10 Fr# 288 - PMG VG-10
Heavy wear and a resultant low grade should be no deterrent for the collector who needs an example of this extremely difficult 1880 $10 silver certificate. Despite the wear, this remains a completely...
$1,200 $1,400
19
1886 $2 Fr# 243 - VF
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1886 $2 Fr# 243 - VF
Pressed, but perhaps not overly so since the paper still offers noticeable tactile "feel", and retains decent crispness for VF. While perfectly centered top to bottom, the left margin is a trifle...
$800 $900
20
1886 $10 Tombstone Fr# 293 - F
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1886 $10 Tombstone Fr# 293 - F
Although pressed out rather heavily, this very popular tombstone, always a scarce and difficult type, still presents reasonably well at only the Fine level. Rosecrans-Hyatt signatures accompany the...
$700 $800
21
1891 $1 Martha Washington Fr# 223 - XF
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $1 Martha Washington Fr# 223 - XF
From an older collection comes this well-margined and rather vivid Martha ace. Pressed, yet still reasonably crisp and fresh, the "look" is just about ideal for our estimated XF grade.
$475 $575
22
1891 $2 Fr# 245 - VF
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $2 Fr# 245 - VF
Evenly margined on three sides, the left margin is even wider, creating plenty of frame space for the highly popular series design. The center fold is a bit strong even for the VF grade, but...
$600 $700
23
1891 $2 Fr# 246 - CGA GemCU-67/original paper quality
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $2 Fr# 246 - CGA GemCU-67/original paper quality
Ellis Johnson Collection. William Windom may be grimacing a bit at the center of the note, but it certainly isn't because of a lack of quality, as this is a near-stunning, well-centered original...
24
1891 $5 Fr# 267 - VF
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1891 $5 Fr# 267 - VF
The shortcoming for this note is undeniably the presence of several olive-brown stains visible from either side. Still ,the 1891 $5 silver certificate is from a popular series and offers the popular...
$500 $600
25
1896 $1 Educational Fr# 225 - AU
US Currency-Silver Certificates, Large
1896 $1 Educational Fr# 225 - AU
The left fold is a bit more pronounced than ideal for an AU note, yet all four margins are even and nicely presented, creating very fair eye-appeal for the grade. A single pinhole may be found just...
