This is probably as good a place as any to put a post up. Marc (mfontes) told me this was the place to be when I wanted to read, chat and think paper. I had been away for a long time from collecting and recently came back. I revisited the CU Forums, and started reading and posting again there. However I noticed the Currency Forum is dead there. Like Sleepy Hollow (do we still refer to the NGC / PMG boards that way?) is any better.
Anyway, I had (still have) a couple pieces of Fractional Currency, including something that seems to be a real rarity (more on that another time). When I came back to collecting, I pulled out the old library from some carefully packed boxes, along with some old catalogs, and spent a few days shuttling things back and forth from the bank vault to admire what I had left in the collection, and started thinking where I'd like to go next. I decided part of "next" would be to get a few more Fractional's, and try to learn more about and purchase some Large Type. So here I am. The journey continues. I'm going to post a note I always liked and thought was something I would want. I've researched this and several others I want or recently bought pretty extensively, and felt good about going after this one. It just showed up today. It's a very attractive note for the grade, and looks nicer in hand. I also liked the fact it was a R-series Serial #. I'll need to get my scanner up and running correctly or figure out how to photograph notes so I can use something other than a cropped version of the auction images. Until then, this will have to do. Say Hi if you want. Here or over there (same name and "stuff" as on CU).
