Comments continue to trickle in regarding the Las Vegas Million Dollar display and its purchaser, dealer Jay Parrino.
Joe Boling writes:
Regarding the million dollars in 10,000 notes, if the original display was composed of series 1928 notes, then they were gold notes - the gold redemption clause was negated by FDR's recall of gold, but the notes promised payment in gold.
Kerry Wetterstrom, Editor/Publisher of The Celator writes:
Just a follow-up to the thread about Jay Parrino. He is now a major dealer in certified (which includes slabbing) U.S. stamps. Just as in coins, he deals in the very best. He is a regular advertiser in Linn's Stamp News, sister publication of Coin World.
