I am always in the market for rare Alabamas, especially post war issues. If anyone runs across anything, let me know, and of course I'll do the same!!

Also, I collect Birmingham Alabama nationals. I need small size Ensley NB, Woodlawn American NB, Leeds American NB and American Traders NB. Large size I need Traders NB. Any denomination for all of these banks is fine.

I just went through my entire collection and I'm amazed to find I have nothing from Alabama. I have almost every other southern state (except Florida). So obviously this is a hole I have to fill too.

I do see AL proof notes come up from time to time. I'll have to see about snagging one now.

I see modern ABNC proof cards here and there and there was a nice ABNC proof 1867 state issue on ebay a few months ago, but other than that they seem scarce. If you run across something you're not going to obtain, let me know.

Btw, Amanda Sheheen has Mobile Alabama proofs from the 1830's for sale, but they ain't cheap!!

Yes, I have bought from Amanda a few times. She isn't cheap, to be sure, but she has the goods. She is willing to negotiate sometimes.

I'll pass along any leads I have on AL material. I tend to pay the most attention to Stacks/Bowers auctions, Heritage auctions, and (when they show up) Smythe auctions.

I've done a lot of business with Amanda because she does have the rare notes. When it comes to rarities, whatcha gonna do! If it's impossible to find you pay the price!

So true. I recently paid $1000 for a very rare issued Bank of Knoxville note. Had to do it... no choice. They show up like NEVER. :)

And now this one is off the market until I die.

A couple of years ago I went back to school and had to sell two of my rare notes that I know I'll most likely never be able to buy again. Makes me sick to think about it. And yeah, I'll have to get awful hungry to sell any more of my 'unobtainables!'

Btw, if you get any leads on an Alabama And Chattanooga Railroad Co. 25 cent meal ticket, I'm in the market to throw one on the pile.
