huntingburg—an old friend

Once again, this month’s article will be based on a recent addition to my national currency collection. Indiana, for whatever reason, always impressed me as a quintessentially Midwestern state. Others might well suggest Iowa or Kansas, but I have made some travels in Indiana, and the well-kept classic nature of its towns made me think Midwest. I have maintained a small but well thought-out collection of Indiana notes for some years. A recent addition, and a sort-of old friend, brings us this wintry month on a visit to Huntingburg, Ind. Let’s go! Huntingburg is a small city in Patoka Twp., DuBois County, Ind., located in the far southwestern part of the state. It has a current population of just over 6,500. During the height of the national currency era, between 1910…

behind the bank note

For this issue, I have invited Jay Recher, Research Manager at Paper Money Guaranty, to share some of his thoughts on collecting bank notes. Q. What inspired you to become a bank note researcher? A. I’ve always been drawn to learning and I enjoy solving puzzles. In my position at PMG, I’m constantly learning something new—which satisfies my thirst for knowledge. PMG has graded more than 4.5 million bank notes from nearly every country, so we are constantly seeing new and interesting notes. Q. Do you also collect bank notes? A. Yes. My collection consists of mainly two types of notes: any note depicting playing cards (clubs, diamonds, hearts or spades) and Nebraska obsolete notes. I wrote a book on the latter, Territorial Banking in Nebraska, which I self-published in 2015. But my favorite…

collections lead heritage sale

There were many notes included in Heritage Auctions’ December 4 – 6 World Paper Money Signature Auction. The auction included notes from the banknote collections of Ma Tak Wo and Yuri Solovey. The collections featured pieces from China and the Banque de l’Indochine. The auctioned notes from French Indochina seem to indicate the market is pretty stable, since many notes fell solidly within estimate. One strong performer that placed above estimate was lot 26009 that consisted of two French Indochina, Saigon 1 Piastre ND (1903-09), Banque de l’Indo-Chine notes with grades PMG Very Fine 20 Net; PCGS Very Fine 30. The lot of two was estimated at $500-$700 and brought in a realized price of $2,520. Two other notes that caught my eye were lot 26062 and lot 26132. Lot 26062 was…

club energy sparks interest in show attendees

I just came home from the Michigan State Show. It was a resounding success, with happy collectors and dealers. This seemed sort of a mystery, given the slow market and lower attendance at major shows, so I asked Michigan State President Stephen Friedman what was up. The basic reason was club energy. This year, under Steve’s leadership the Michigan State Club participated in the Warren, Michigan Christmas parade. They gave out 5,000 fliers on their Thanksgiving show. They put a focus on folks with children, explaining the fun kids could have with collecting. They invited adults from local homes for the elderly and really got the message out. Over 100 kids attended the show. A number of seniors attended also. Parents bought proof sets for children’s birth years. One dealer…
