Investing in any form of coinage, be it gold and silver bullion or historic banknotes, comes with a desire among most to protect that investment. Banknotes are especially vulnerable to damage that can detract from the collectible value of old notes. If you own old US banknotes or other forms of paper currency and want to protect them, currency sleeves are a good first choice. Provident Metals currently has Large Currency Protective Sleeves available to purchase online.
These Large Currency Protective Sleeves are designed for older, larger forms of US currency no longer in production. Each sleeve is designed to hold just one banknote and offers a flexible, durable housing to keep the banknote safe from damage. These are specifically labeled Large Currency Protective Sleeves because each is designed for use with historic banknotes such as those issued in the US prior to 1930.
From 1861 to 1929, the United States issued banknotes that were up to 50% larger than the modern Federal Reserve Notes. Some of the bills were so large they were affectionately known as horse blankets. This applied to notes from several different eras and types of issue from the US, including old Legal Tender Notes, Silver Certificates, Treasure Notes, National Bank Notes, Gold Certificates, Federal Reserve Bank Notes, and even the direct predecessor to modern notes, Federal Reserve Notes produced through 1929.
One such example would be the historic $10 Legal Tender Note Series 1901, better known as the Bison Note. The large banknote featured an American bison on its obverse with portraits of Lewis and Clark. The historic female personification of America, Columbia, is featured on the reverse of the notes with a denomination.
