Way back when.... In the early 1970s a pack of Silver Dollar Reverse notes showed up in the Cincinnati area. They came from a bank in Huntington West Virginia. I managed to get 19 notes from the pack. The serials were B285804XX. Many of them are listed in Martin Gengerke's census. At about the same time two other groups showed up in the Pittsburgh area. Today's collectors are the beneficiaries.

The $10,000 gold certificates became collectable following a 1935 fire in Washington, DC. Most show signs of their fiery origin. Many of the notes have been treated to remove stains and oxidation.
This often removed the signature. None of the Uncirculated PMG graded notes achieved EPQ status. The following note is one of six AU 58 notes to earn their EPQ stripes. ORIGINAL!
$10,000 1900. F1225h. Teehee-Burke. PMG Choice About Uncirculated 58EPQ. A superior example of this wildly popular but non-negotiable note. Serial M109354. $6250

Pandemics give us lots of free time. I used some of mine to resurrect this ancient (2001) listing.
1918 $50 F831. St Louis. The $50 denomination was issued only for St Louis. The late William A Philpott ("Mr Phil")
owned a hoard of some 30 notes, which he released gradually at ever-increasing prices. This particular note is the plate
note for Hessler [The Comprehensive Catalog of US Paper Money]. It was sold publicly by Hickman and Oakes in 1986 and
by Stack's in 1990. In both of those sales it was described as Crisp Uncirculated. However, the note has a faint pressed,
centerfold - [Mr Phil had a reputation as a "washer and presser", in an era when this was not frowned upon].
