Title: My only $500 note
Post by: Gary_T on April 05, 2019, 04:24:43 pm
A picture of my only $500 note.
Anyone else have this kind of stuff?
I got this from the fonder of this site Paul Wallis

Nice $500, more affordable than the real one!  I have these wallets that have bills like $50  and $100 as the design.  Not sure if I would use it in public, but it's still cool

I own a French back and face proof pair that I bought many moons ago and overpaid for.  It's probably the closest I'll ever get to owning a circulation issue $500 note so I still have it.  You don't lose unless you sell, right?

Don't know what you paid but I doubt you overpaid for it.  Those are extremely popular even as proofs.  We'll just see what the set sells for in the coming Torex auction and you can tell us again if you still think you overpaid for yours.

Speaking of the $500 proof, the French Back Proof catalog number is JMZ in the 2019 catalog?  What does JMZ mean or is that a typo?

Good eye.  I see it is on P224 & appears on the 30th edition too.  I am wondering if it was an old annotation/code for an old auction since it lists for $2,600 in UNC (before the specimen/proofs were given a Charlton code) & it just never got flagged?  Probably should post this on the "GPM 32 revisions" thread.
