    66electrafied Just tossing in my nickel's worth

    Is there anyone out there in Buick-land who collects obsolete US banknotes (pre civil war)?

    What I'm looking for is some information on some of the issuing banks as well as the notes. The source book for these notes ("the Haxby") is long out of print and worth a small fortune, and before I hunt a set down, I was wondering if there was anyone who has it and whether it contains information about the issuing banks as well as the values or rarity of the notes. The books are called "The Standard Guide to US Obsolete Currency", by Haxby, published by Krause Publishing.

    So I'm also looking for a decent history of Banking in the US from 1810 to 1860.
