I picked up some inventory items I was looking for, thanks gentlemen (you know who you are). But I will say that maybe I caught someone on a leaning moment. I got this stack of $2's for $4 each. I know they're not ALL goodies. But they work for me, specially at that price. IMG_20200114_231214713[1].jpg

Posted on the other thread before I saw this so I will just add it here as well...




I was beat on many lots some by multiples of what I bid! However, I like the price action I am seeing... Hopefully it continues!

I was able to add this 1 little note. For me it is a big acquisition with Territorial Scrip coming up so infrequently. I was surprised this didn't bring more as I do think it is unique from my observations but there could be others out there that other collectors know about or own.

5 Cent Wewoka Trading Co Wewoka IT Seminole Nation ND PCGS 15 Apparent.jpg

Wewoka, OK (Indian Terr.)- Wewoka Trading Co. 5¢ ND Burgett UNL PCGS Apparent Fine 15.
This is the only note from this issuer known to us. Wewoka was located in the heart of the Seminole Nation. The website of the Oklahoma Historical Society notes, "Elijah J. Brown, a white trader, established a trading post at Wewoka in 1866. Over two decades the post passed through several owners. In 1880 Seminole Chief John F. Brown and his brother Andrew Jackson Brown bought it from Courtland L. Long. In 1891 Long repurchased an interest in the firm from the Brown brothers and named it the Wewoka Trading Company. Located at the corner of Main Street and Wewoka Avenue, the general store offered clothing, stoves, furniture, wagons, and farm implements. Customers included whites and African Americans as well as American Indians. The company issued its own scrip, which could be exchanged at other local businesses. The vault at the Wewoka Trading Company safeguarded the Seminole Nation records and the federal annuity payments to the Seminole." This issuer is unlisted in Burgett and signed by Long, dating it to between 1891 and approximately 1907. PCGS mentions a repair in the lower right corner that is pretty well done. A great note from a hard to collect area.



Here are some other similar descriptions but you can see that there is a lot of history to this store/issuer:

The Wewoka Trading Company was one of the pioneer business concerns of the Indian Territory. It was established in the 1880’s by John F. Brown, Chief of the Seminole Nation; his brother, Andrew J. Brown, Seminole Nation Treasurer; and Courtland L. Long.  It rose in importance until it was rated as one of the greatest commercial undertakings of the Southwest. At one time, it was valued by Dunn & Bradstreet at well over one million dollars.  The gigantic store, which covered nearly a full city block, carried everything from a knitting needle to a threshing machine. This company made its own paper money, known by the Seminoles as "Choka Sodka." The scrip (or script) was prepared in Canada and signed by C. L. Long, secretary of the Trading Company and either John F. Brown or A. J. Brown as President or Vice President.   It was redeemable in goods at the big store of the company. (https://www.seminolenationmuseum.org/history/wewoka-community/

The Wewoka Trading Company, a once-prominent business establishment, was located in Wewoka, Seminole Nation, Indian Territory. Elijah J. Brown, a white trader, established a trading post at Wewoka in 1866. Over two decades the post passed through several owners. In 1880 Seminole Chief John F. Brown and his brother Andrew Jackson Brown bought it from Courtland L. Long. In 1891 Long repurchased an interest in the firm from the Brown brothers and named it the Wewoka Trading Company.
Located at the corner of Main Street and Wewoka Avenue, the general store offered clothing, stoves, furniture, wagons, and farm implements. Customers included whites and African Americans as well as American Indians. The company issued its own scrip, which could be exchanged at other local businesses. The vault at the Wewoka Trading Company safeguarded the Seminole Nation records and the federal annuity payments to the Seminole. In the early 1900s Charles Ross Anthony, founder of Anthony Stores, worked as a bookkeeper at the firm. Following the death of John F. Brown on October 21, 1919, the Wewoka Trading Company had a closeout sale. Wewoka Mayor C. Guy Cutlip purchased the three-story, brick building, which existed until destroyed by a fire on October 28, 1925. (https://www.okhistory.org/publications/enc/entry.php?entry=WE024

Haha!

The past few days I have felt like shifting most of my attention back to my movie prop collection. Currency is so frustrating.

I dunno...Panda's are starting to sound better and better, too!

I picked up the series 1993 Web printed fold error on Heritage live currency auction,  last January I picked up two series 1988a Web fold errors (one printed fold the other unprinted fold) plus the series 1995 printed fold plate note ... I purchased those three Web folds for a fraction of what the 1993 cost, but it was worth it...

A friend of mine was at FUN, (I wasn’t) but he told me that one of his friends that was there with him, got this in change from a dealer.  


I’ll admit, I likely wouldn’t have noticed:
