Would it be possible to start a registry for $5 R/C BABN Notes. Does any member own any and/or seen any? Was there really 88,000 printed and circulated?

I think he is referring to the regular issue Beattie-Coyne notes with prefix R/C that were printed by BABN (BC-39a) and are numbered 0000001 to 0088000.  These are extremely rare and I have only seen one in the past 20 years.

Yes, it was the non-replacement R/C. I've corrected my original posting. It was 88,000 not 8,800. Missed one zero.

Let's see if there's enough demand for it, then we'll talk.
