I went to a couple of banks to check for cool money. The first bank had two old notes. I was shocked that one was a 1928b "Funny Back" $1, this series, 1928B, was made between February 1932 and March 1933. This is my first "Funny Back" found in circulation, it has been at the top of my "Want to Find List" since I started searching for old currency. Even though it is an absolute mess I very happy with it. I also got a 1928D $2 note, in better condition, made between January 1934 and July 1944. The second bank I went to, attached to a supermarket I needed to go to had one old note. A 1934D $5 Federal Reserve Note, made between June 25, 1946 and May 29, 1949. Again in very bad shape, but it is my first Federal Reserve Note from 1934. Nothing is worth much, except for face, but I love finding all of them.

Good fillers till something better shows up to take its place. We're nothing but see through plastic bills now up here, doesn't even have that smell of $$$ anymore. :(

Most of the stuff really isn't ever worth much, but in our hobby the find is what its all about. Nice saves, I would have loved to have found those at the banks.
