I'm sure we all have a note with issues but could care less...this is one of those.This is a type I was introduced to by the person that sold me my very first note (a bison).This elderly gentleman at the Margate Coin&Stamp in Margate, FL (which no longer exists as he has long since passed) had a private collection that wasn't for sale.As he was sharing some knowledge, encouraging me to read up and learn before spending my money, he would show off his stuff to me.He had a set of these "silver backs" and I was hypnotized! I have only owned 1 of these before (in vg grade with repairs) and sold it some years back.I always keep an eye out for even half a deal on one to try to replace it.Finally,I nabbed this one.Corner missing, a few small tears, sure....but I don't really care much at all.Feel free to show off a note you have with issues but you don't care too much about them (for whatever reason).

National Currency collectors run into this issue all the time. The need to 'settle' for a note with significant problems, since it may be unlikely that a non-problem note will ever become available for a needed charter or town. Here's a Wisconsin example: only 6 Cuba City notes are known to exist for all Wisconsin collectors and those collectors who chase "foreign country in US" Nats.  Nasty dark wallet stain, but I love it, warts and all!!

Nothing wrong with that Cuba City note... great national.

Problems, problems, problems, but one of the toughest nationals to get... so get one, then worry about condition...

First Post!!


I acquired this one about five or six years ago. This has always been one of my favorite designs and couldn't pass up a good deal. Still saving up for a really nice example, but I imagine this note could tell quite a few stories.

Definitely not a high grade note, but it's the only issued note of its design known - this was the first $3 design for the State Bank of Ohio.  Forty-one branches, and all that's known of this design is one proof and now this note.  Completes the set of all genuine, issued SBOH notes.

BMG aasked "So where is the paper pull? I must be completely missing it."

Funny you asked that. As I posted the Cuba City a couple days ago, I was asking myself the same thing. There's no ink missing any where on the note as you often see with a paper pull. I believe thy're referring to a roughed up area over the effigy;s right shoulder on the reverse. Glad it's got the big stain, I wouldn't have been too happy if the note was netted for this defect alone:
