Owner's Description

The recent auction of the Doug Murray collection saw a lot of great all the way to average notes. However, I like to own notes by great collectors if the price is right. Of course, I always look for Thomas Flynn notes, also Doug Murray, Chet Krause, The Siesta Collection. Although this note is a "set completer" it is a comment free note with nice color. Completing collections is costly and sometimes one must purchase inexpensive notes to complete sets. I doubt I'll ever complete the complete Gold Certificate collection, mainly because of the scarcity and price of the 1201 - 1215's. Even the Grant 50's that are Fr. 1198, 1199, 1200, 1200a, 1200m, 1200am is daunting. Four pricey Grant $50's are required just to complete the Fr. 1200 series. My Fr. 1200 PMG 53 EPQ was costly enough. The other three, of which this is one note, will probably be VF. these four notes in XF to AU could easily surpass $20,000. It's an expensive hobby for us paper junkies and the chance you will ever see a profit, or even break even is not probable. Thus we do it for pleasure.
