Our June U.S. Currency CCO Auction is available for viewing and bidding at StacksBowers.com. There are almost 300 lots in the sale, that features impressive offerings of Confederate Bonds and Obsolete Currency. The other sections contain some neat items too, such as lot 91162, a Fr. 752 1918 $2 Federal Reserve Bank Note in PCGS Banknote Choice Uncirculated 64.

The featured note is a popular Battleship deuce, offered here in a highly sought-after Choice Uncirculated grade. A New York class battleship is seen on the reverse (either BB-34 USS New York or BB-35 USS Texas), which were pre-World War One era dreadnoughts and state of the art technology at the time this series was in circulation.

We are currently taking consignments for our August Global Showcase Auction, as well as our monthly CCO events. To consign your U.S. paper money and world paper money to a future sale, contact a consignment specialist at 800-458-4646 or visit StacksBowers.com.
