Excited To Be Able To Add More Currency

Posted: 2/2/2011 9:25:50 PM | Views:1640

I've sold some of my coins to work on currency.

It's been almost a year (10 months I guess) since I've wrote a journal entry here. In that time, I've come to a big decision for me, I've decided to cut down on my coins so I can afford to purchase more notes and related items.

This is one of those decisions that can cut both ways. I love coins, have since I was a youngster. But I do appreciate a beautiful, well-printed piece of currency. I also was a small offset pressman for many years, and I think this furthered my love of currency.

I also like adjunct items (both coins and currency) and last week purchased 4 lots a Stack's auction. 3 of the lots are die proof vignettes used on various currency and financial documents, the other is a (quoting the Stack's description) "Archival Specimen" of a "Teller Order Certificate from The First National Bank of Deadwood". Based on the date, this would be Dakota Territory.

So, I hope this entry shows how exited I am to be able to afford more currency and related items. Another related item I really love are die plates of vignettes used on various types of financial documents. As an example, I'm attaching a scan of a print of one of my dies, this one is entitled "Lower Falls Of The Yellowstone". Hope you all enjoy it.
