Educational Series notes. They are phenomenal pieces of American art - as well as highly collectible.

Pardon my bluntness, but you asked for thoughts.

You'd be a damn fool to:

#1, accept their grading.
#2, accept their pricing.

So with that said:

#1, learn to grade for yourself.
#2, learn the values of the notes you're considering.

Why?

#1, they may be over-graded, or conservatively graded. Big difference!
#2, they may be underpriced, or way over-priced. How would you know?

These notes could be common or rare, find out.

I see you are ready to jump, like right now,
but you need to buy a US Currency price guide and study it fast and hard on those notes.

Otherwise, you're taking a gamble. Period.
You didn't state what kind of dollar figure is at stake, but it's up to you if you're comfortable with taking the risk.

I'd be happy to give you cliff notes if I had them, but I'm not into paper currency so I can't.

He's asking $175. But your right. I shouldn't jump.

More bluntness...

I'd be tempted. Not a whole lot at stake, and you're buying nice art they ain't making any more of.


But, that wouldn't stop me from going to Barnes & Noble and spending the $15 on a guide first thing, and making sure.
I mean, for all I know, this guy could have gone all around town netting no offer better than $40 for the lot.

I just don't know, so I'd make sure I was reasonably safe first.
Like I say, the risk isn't huge... but look dude, you'll need that guide going forward anyways.
