The $2 note is a "$30 value" but the case for the free 3-D note is a "$40 value"? :?

It's the "unbelievable" economics of "Made for TV" merchandise, Eric.

No serious collector of coins or bank notes would go anywhere near this sort of thing. Numismatics is a hobby of mine although one I haven't been able to do much about in a very long time. (It's expen$ive!) Every note I have and which any serious collector has would be of the real McCoy unadulterated or altered by anything except wear, tear, and time.

Hi Mike,

<<Numismatics is a hobby of mine...>>

Then you will appreciate this :) The DLRC scan is the dead brown one I bought from, the other is the old original Goldberg auction photo I dug up before I bought it. The coin was exactly as imaged in the Goldberg Benson auction! ;) PCGS Pr63, today a 64+ no doubt ;) Low mintage/low pop too. I really prefer Proofs 1937-1942. I used to have a set of 10C in Pr from Seated up to Roosevelt.

Hi Ken,

you noticed that too? Deep down, he must have a problem with lying! :)

Hello. I can remember one year while in Texas. The guy I was staying with really wanted me to have a $2 note as they were quite rare. Not rare as to be worth anything but you just didn't see too many of them. We went from bank to bank to try to find one. When I finally got one Ricky was over the moon about it while I just thought "so whats the big deal". But I pretended that I was excited. Ken.
