Dad's Most Recent Currency Binder

Paper Money-U.S. | AndreBizzle

Hey Guys,


While I was going through my dad's collection, I came across a currency binder that included his most recent acquisitions. Towards the end of his life, my father's interests shifted from coins to focus on Colonial America Paper Currency. I don't know much about these pieces, but I think it's fascinating to hold a piece of paper (with a gloved hand of course) from 1773. If only these pieces of paper could talk, I can only begin to imagine the stories they might tell!


Here's a list of what I've found. I've attached pictures of both sides for each. If you guys happen to have any additional information on any of these pieces I'd love to hear it! If you'd like to see better pictures of something just let me know.


1. 18 Pence - October 1, 1773 - No. 9582 - Printed by Hall and Sellers

2. 18 Pence - October 1, 1773 - No. 22308 - Printed by Hall and Sellers

3. 6 Shillings - April 10, 1777 - No. 26835 - Philadelphia - Printed by John Dunlap

4. 20 Dollars - July 2, 1780 - No. 781 - Rhode Island - Printed by Hall and Sellers

5. 5 Shillings - January 1, 1776 - No. 65209 - Printed by James Adams

6. 20 Shillings - May 1, 1777 - No. 10341 - Printed by James Adams


Thanks!

Oh my. I've always wanted one of those, but always seem to get outbid. Maybe I should exceed the market value slightly when I do? Your late father had an awesome eye and knew what to pursue!

Great collection of paper notes. I never got into the notes. Would like to see sone graded? If I collected notes, I would collect graded most likely.

Please don't take them out of the plastic. Its the best way to take care of them. If you decide to send them in . That's different. But they look good your Dad did a good job protecting them.some people don't protect anything.I The paper is very old. You can damage them taking them out . There very dry and can have pieces fall off

Try to arrange your pics facing natural light . Remove all items from plastic covers before taking photos. Make sure you do this in a dry space. Get your items certified the "safest" way . I am here to help, anytime!!

You have the treasure at hand. The items you hold from your dad are higher than legends and you for being the collector shall be valued. Those are interesting dates and significant specially the 1776, which to my beliefs was issued under the economic pressures of war. Do not let comments take you down, cherish everything you hold. I doubt very much your dad collected counterfeits nor funny items, as I read his postings. Keep up the great work.

I have bid on some of these with no luck. The value depends on the paper quality and who signed them. The paper looks excellent. I can read those who signed them. My book is in the library. I donated them after I stopped collecting . They are still on my bucket list. To own currency signed by Franklin and many other signers of the independence is holding history Our history. Your father was great in taking care of them. . Enjoy them. Find a book on colonial currency!PLEASE DONT TAKE THEM OUT OF THE P!ASTIC. THE PAPER IS VERY FINE OLD AND MIGHT BREAK APART!!!
