Old Money to Play With

Thought I would show you a piece of what I get to photograph occasionally at work.
This is an authentic Republic of Texas bank note for $50.
We've gotten quite a few ROT notes as well as confederate notes.  Very interesting pieces.  They are all hermetically sealed now by a grading company so they will not disintegrate over time.
Lovely pieces of history!

I'd never seen ROT currency before! Fascinating. It must be great fun to handle treasures such as this.

Very cool. Love it.

I hope that my small brush with the edge of the hurricane winds will be the only time. LOL I can wish can't I?? Doesn't it count that it was blowing at 50 MPH??

Have a wonderful day.
