Tom Sheehan forwarded the following note and query regarding neckties with numismatic designs, Leave it to an E-Sylum reader to have such a narrow specialty! -EditorDid anyone else notice today what Ted Turner was wearing during his December 18th CNBC interview? Since I have a collection of numismatic ties it was the first thing I noticed. Mr. Turner's tie was a representation of a $10.00 Legal Tender Note (F114). It is one of the more colorful and popular numismatic neckties.
I consider myself a bit of an expert in this area since my collection consists of about 50 different ties. Believe it or not there are even varieties in numismatic ties. I do have a dupe or two to trade.
To view the interview, see: Madoff & the Super-Rich (www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=970792002&play=1)
One of Turner's ventures is a chain of restaurants called Ted's Montana Grill. Turner owns ranchland in Montana where he raises buffalo, and he mentioned both in the interview. That may be the reason for the tie - another way to promote buffalo meat. -Editor
