Last Update July 26, 2015




Our selection of over 12,000 United States and World Bank Notes features color images of the faces and backs of the notes offered for sale.

As a member of the Professional Currency Dealers Association I guarantee your satisfaction.

Our list of New Purchases is updated two or three times each month.

The $100 State Bank of Ohio note has long been the "holy grail" of Ohio obsoletes. 19th century counterfeit detectors listed it for every branch. But research by Wendell Wolka revealed that no $100 notes were issued or prepared by banks in the State Bank of Ohio system.

The note shown here is the first to reach the hands of modern collectors. Technically it is a spurious note, not a counterfeit, since no genuine notes of this type were issued.

At the final meeting of the State Bank Board of Control genuine notes were burned. It seems likely that many spurious and counterfeit notes joined that bonfire.

We have the new colorized $100 notes in stock, both regular issues, stars and uncut sheets. Series 2013 deliveries with Rios-Lew signatures have begun, both regular and star.

In January 2015 the BEP began delivering "Single Note Inspection" (SNI) process notes. This process identifies and reclaims notes from otherwise defective/unsuitable sheets. These notes are packaged differently and are not consecutively numbered. reports Washington DC produced notes (2009A) are showing up on ebay, presumably via SNI. I have seen (March 2015) DC produced notes from the New York and Chicago districts. Maybe Series 2009 will follow??
