I will pass on the GA proof - I was just trying to bottom feed.

I did not get the potentially unique note. Which one was it?

I was the high bidder on this note sold at the last Heritage FUN 2010 session.

Yesterday I received the notes I bought at the Heritage FUN auctions. I am very pleased. For impaired notes they look better than the images led me to believe they would. This expanded my proof collection by 25%.

Hi Greg, I found this intaglio from 1980 in my collection, same vignette as your new years note.
seems Danforth&Wright Co. used it on more notes.

Yes, there were several notes printed with the horse vignette.

Well, I can't pretend to keep up with Greg, but here's my one addition so far this year.

Image

Wolka 1848-17, unlisted in Haxby. It is mounted on a card, and the triangle in the middle seems to be a cancellation, as the writing across the front reads "Redeemed January 27th 1835".

Not the prettiest note around, but I can cross off one more tough bank from my list. Only 16 to go!

ETA: The writing below the redemption (to the right as you look at it now) is the signature of B.W. Snodgrass, the cashier at the time of redemption.

This note from the recently concluded Heritage auction amuses me. Yes, I was the high bidder... in fact, I think the ONLY bidder. You may wonder why, but I'll keep that bit of amusement to myself for the moment.

OK, I will bite. What is so amusing? Is it the the AF with a crown or the eagle feeding its young?

It must be that the proof got an apparent for being "hole punched?"

There seem to be quite a few of these non-Christie proofs around, with Heritage selling 4 different ones and more than a dozen listed in All_Lots. Haxby lists the $1, 2, 3, 5, 10, and 50 as proofs, all with similar values. Durand lists the whole bank as R-7. However, none of the other values have shown up in All_Lots??

What makes it amusing to me is the grading.

Today for the first time ever I bid in an auction using an agent.

While reading Antiques and the Arts weekly, I ran across an ad for an auction being held in my home town in TN. The thing that caught my eye about the auction was the lot that had a knife made in East TN in the 19th century. So I went to the web site and looked at the knife.

While poking around the other lots I noticed two lots of obsolete currency, and one of them was a proof from a bank in TN I collect. I placed an online bid on the lot, and then noticed so had two other people. I decided to try to secure my chances better by employing an agent.

So I called my dad and asked him if he would mind attending the auction and bidding for me if the lot went higher than my bid. He agreed. The net result is I came away with a Bank Of Jefferson proof $5 note for MUCH less than they were selling for in Memphis (about half, actually).

Add one to the collection.

These kind of finds are always nice.

Hopefully the agent's fee was not too high.
