Reality ain't so bad... besides, while I like that a nice unhandled note exists, circulated notes actually worked for a living, and have character that a plastic holder queen will never have. Did that note ever pay for a round of drinks for the house? A second hand gat used in a seedy alleyway murder? A night of unnatural carouses with a one-legged syphilitic hooker? Oh the stories it could tell...

One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor. There’s something to be said about both notes. The bold red seal, blue serial numbers and  vignette of General Windfield Scott Hancock stand out on the pristine example, but who knows when it will be held again, or ever. Whereas the circulated note has earned a living and done exactly what it was made for, and loves to be held.

+1 … your note has earned the right to look a little weathered,
it is still an attractive looker 👀,  I would be proud to have it 👍👍
