The Mike Coltrane Collection Part 1
U. S. Currency Preview

In the past few issues we previewed many of the great rarities in The Mike Coltrane Collection Part 1. It's a fascinating grouping, with notes spanning virtually all genres of U.S. currency: Colonial notes, Continental Currency, War of 1812 Treasury Notes (the first portion of the finest collection ever assembled) as well as Federal large and small size issues. Many of these pieces have been off the market for decades and are all offered completely unreserved. An eclectic sampling is below:
