And it wasn't hard to find semi-key dates in the 19th century Liberty gold and Seated silver series that over the past 40 years have increased 30X to 50X in value. One of my better pics from 1975 was an XF45 1867-s quarter for all of $130. It's worth $4,000-$5,000 today. Believe me, it was better to spend those $10 notes back in 1976. Obviously, if found today you wouldn't do that.
    hey.. its a good story, yours that is, and heard it or similar from many, many times concerning all sorts of older entites.. as you know.. you have been there and back, that is obvious.... always been a pack rat i guess i certainly would have kept crisp consec 1934 $10 notes.....just cause of my pack it away mentality....LOL

    I stack lots of stuff...
    Fiat?
    Sure!

    If it isn't valuable in my lifetime, certainly it will be for the grandkids...
    I'm happy knowing I did something for them

    Oh, yeah...

    Some here have hinted about digital fiat...the $10 note is going to change in 5 years...there has been discussion about a "new" fiat...

    If/when any of this occurs, all previous examples will go up in value

    Keep Stacking

    Just wait until they change the composition of nickels...

    Since have been a philatelist for over 4 decades, I enjoy the art and design of old currency. Plus it is really an education for someone when you can show them a silver or gold certificate or a large US Dollar, or even Confederate paper money.

    On a side note, holding a cover (that is an envelope that has been canceled) that was delivered via a Zeppelin or censored US mail from WWII is priceless. Having history at your fingertips makes it come alive.

    I also enjoy museums. If you ever get a chance, visit the Edison/Ford museum in FL. Until I went there, I never knew that Edison has an ideal of building affordable housing out of concrete. Interesting idea.

    I have always thought the silver certificates of 1934 were the prettiest notes in all small sized currency, especially the one and the tens...
