    Out looking around for picks and I came across this awesome one dollar Black Eagle Silver Certificate. I had never seen one before until today. I made my best deal and I took it home and put it in one of my showcases for everyone to see. Here's a little info on the dollar.
    Giant "Horse Blanket" Black Eagle Note!
    Nicknamed for their size (25% larger than our current dollar bill), this 1899 $1 Black Eagle Silver Certificate prominently displays an eagle with his wings spread, printed in black ink on the obverse. This is the only piece of U.S. currency ever issued which displays the portraits of 2 different presidents-Lincoln and Grant-two giants of 19th century American history. One of these same notes in near-perfect condition recently sold at auction for $30,000!

      Who is "farmlady" off-fuel? You holding out on us again?
    16. officialfuel officialfuel, 5 years ago
      blunderbuss2, I don't know who everyone is that hits my things. But farmlady is a friend of mine that lives in northern Indiana that I meet about five years ago. I hope that answeres all the curious people on here. LoL

      Didn't mean to invade privacy, God forbid! But, is she single & can you send a pic? LOL. Ah, she would probably sweat during our 72-77F winters here. So cold that I had to go down a clk on my overhead fan today. And it's only 77F! Wait till the really cold weather gets here!
    18. officialfuel officialfuel, 5 years ago
      blunderbuss2 ask anything you want, I have nothing to hide! lol Sorry but she has been married for 30 years. You could send some of that warm weather this way! You've got it made and enjoy your warm winter. :-)

      Hey, you guys sent it down here & wish I could reverse the flow. Actually, I rather enjoy the "cold" weather. Met a newcomer German girl & will let you know later if I have it made. What's called "warm body weather" here. LOL!
