In addition to the rare notes, the sale will also feature a selection of more affordable notes for the budget-conscious collector. These notes are a great opportunity for novice collectors to start building their collection or for experienced collectors to add to their existing collection. The auction will be held online and will be open for bidding to the public. World Banknote Auctions has also listed part 1 of the Navy Commander Collection of U.S. National and Gold Banknotes, which will take place on March 10.
