After perusing the forum I didn't see a new member intro so I'll just jump right in. I'm Yehuda (yes really) and I am a collector of rare Alabama obsoletes. I've tried collecting other states, Confederates, Federals and different currency genres but nothing holds my attention and fascination like the Alabamas. I'll begin by posting pics of some of my favorite notes.

This is an 1867 Patton certificate named after governor Patton and issued by the state to provide specie for the coming tax season. Shull lists it as a rarity 10, or 5-15 known and it is unlisted in plate B but Heritage says there is at least one more plate B known. I got it from Amanda Sheheen a couple years ago.

1865 City Of Montgomery early reconstruction issue I got from Don Kelly. Rosene lists it as R-5 or 11-25 known. I didn't pay much for it due to condition.
