Small start to a currency collection

| The Paginator

This June I got to go to the Currency Show in Kansas City. As I wrote in my last blog post I was trying to start a currency collection so that is one reason me and my family went. To start of my collection with some paper money that wasn’t too expensive, I bought a five dollar red seal series 1953 A. I also bought Disney dollars while I was at the show although they aren’t for my currency collection necessarily I bought them for a display I am going to do on Disney dollars soon.The main reason I chose the red seal five dollar bill to start my collection was because I already had one that someone gave me but it wasn’t in very good condition so I got an almost uncirculated one. It’s a lot nicer to look at than a wrinkled one!

Saving money can backfire...in this case

| The Paginator

I recently started collecting paper currency but I was having problems finding currency that wasn't way too expensive. Anyways while I was looking for cheaper currencies I came across some interesting information. We went to the library and got two currency books one from 2009 and the other from 2017. I compared the notes that I was interested in between the books and the prices were quite different but not at all the way that I expected.

The National Money Show in Texas

National Money Show | The Paginator

This year my family went to Irving Texas for the National Money Show. The main reason we went there though was because I did a money talk on World War II Emergency currency and I put a display in on Kennedy half dollars. The three World War II currency's I talked about were the Victory Note, North African Yellow Seal Certificate and the Hawaii note. It was a new experience for me so it was a little scary. Although I earned 250 YN dollars for doing it so that was the best part! I didn't get any awards for my display but that was OK because it was my first time and a learning experience.

Two dollar bills!!!

Paper Money - United States | The Paginator

What is the deal with $2 bills? Will the government ever stop printing them and why do people think they are they so rare? The bill has gone through a unique past. It’s past reflects the history of the United States and it is one of the most uncommon bills ever made in the US!

The Arcane Susan B Anthony Dollar?

Coins | The Paginator

It all started when my dad and I went to Starbucks my dad handed the guy there 2 Susan B Anthony dollars and some change and the guy kept telling him he needed more money because he didn't realize they were worth a dollar. That’s when I realized that most people don't know what a Susan B Anthony Dollar is. So I decided to do a survey on the High School students at my school. The most common answer I got for my survey was she was an Indian Lady, the denomination was San Francisco which was funny because the answer was on the coin and most people had a random answer for how many years it was made. So because lots of people don't know what a Susan B Anthony Dollar is I am going to tell you.
