    Question about

    I inherited a "Buffalo" $10.00 bill. I have trouble reading the date, looks like 1862 or 1869. It has pictures of Lewis and Clark on the front along with a buffalo. It has gone back to the lock box, wonder what it is worth? I guess it is in "okay " shape considering it is so old.

    That means you would go $30.00 on a new Kolar I guess. Maybe trap is not financially adviseable for you.

    Not many $.00003 targets around. LOL

    Charlie Becknell just a suggestion have it appraised that is the only way you will get an answer to your question. With all the high priced offers I am seeing being made be very careful, don't let the greed of the bidders sweep you away. LOL

    Be sure you have put the note into a protective cover. Leo collects coins/bills and keeps his best paper notes in solid plastic cases so you can still see both sides.

    They are like guns, what is the condition. If its mint you are better off. Take it to a coin shop and see what they say. Just keep your eyes on it while they look at it.

    If you do the coin shop deal as far as price goes double it at least once to get a correct price.
