OT GEM 1914 $20 FEDERAL RESERVE LARGE NOTE

Post by bhinkle » Sat Feb 05, 2022 9:52 pm

I received this GEM 1914 $20 Federal Reserve large sized note today, that is graded PMG 65.
Since I haven't found any nice vams, for years, I thought I would also post some pictures of
my 1881 S R-7 vam 54B, that I was lucky enough to have spotted and bought awhile back.
I'll add three more close up pictures.
Enjoy, Bert

Great looking note! Too bad the obverse is rotated 90-degrees.

To quote Ron from Harry Potter - and to sound a bit British in my Wyoming accent:

BLOODY HELL, Bert...

These are both stellar. Been hunting unsuccessfully for a 54B for quite some time now... :?

Great note. I have a couple of examples of this, but they are nearly this nice

Wow! Both are stunners! I have recently started a Paper Currency collection and man, I thought coins were expensive!

I've been on the hunt for an '81-S 54b for a long time! I'd love to find one some day. Thank you for sharing!
