The Pensacola Hoard. In the early 1970s a pair of Florida "lads" were familiar figures at coin shows. They were George Nicholson, a well-known vest pocket dealer, and his friend, a retired physician. "Doc" always carried a small briefcase. He had bundles of $20 Type 2 nationals on the American NB of Pensacola, like the ones below. His price was $35 per note. Today these notes provide collectors an inexpensive Florida national in prime condition.
