I just ordered my 5 sets. I need 3 more to round out the Christmas gifts, for my grandchildren.

RonnieBGood May 13, 2014 at 10:17 am

Would make good gifts but…
I hesitate to spend $20 a piece (including ship) for a $2 bill even with a 3k maximum!

Jack May 13, 2014 at 4:16 pm

Got my 5 sets. These will be sold old by the weekend. Web sight at 8AM was very sluggish. Most likely due to the heavy traffic. I like the set but agree with Ronnie about them being pricey. I usually keep one and sell the others so I end up getting the set for free.

They already SOLD OUT! I was on their web site around 4:00 p.m. Central Time on the first day of sale. I was thinking about ordering but I first checked out other year’s sets to see how they were selling on the second market. I noticed other sets had a limit of 5,000. The 2014 set has only 3,000 sets so I decided to go ahead & order. I went back to the Money Factory Store around 5:00 p.m. Central Time and they were sold out! I blew it by not ordering the set the first time I was on their web site. I’m so upset with myself right now. Oh well, maybe next year. lol

Victor DeCurtis May 14, 2014 at 10:25 am

Ronnie, yes, $20 for a $2.00 bill seems pricey, until you know, only 3,000 sets will be available, and the reverse of the bill has a unique look. Oh, and, did I mention they were all sold out, by 4pm, on the first day? Sometimes we have to hold our breath and hope for the best.

RonnieBGood May 14, 2014 at 10:41 am

Vic / all – Glad you got your sets.
The best flip is to get them graded. I am not sure why the paper money is so much more to grade than coins are but PMG will grade this set for $25 with just a UNC or GEM grade. I would go for the actual grading and not the generic grade. This will cost more but again get you will get the largest profit for a flip on this one.
I was aware of the 3k limit and the different reverse for this year but I am just not a collector of fiat paper money. I have a few older graded PMG treasury notes. For this year I am saving for the coming JFK coin sets 😉

Victor DeCurtis May 14, 2014 at 1:23 pm

Ron, oh yeah! I am waiting with baited breath, for the 2014 Gold Kennedy Half. I don’t remember if it’s as demanded or a set amount. I remember in 1965, when I returned from Vietnam, the first time, I happened to pass a dry cleaner in 29 Palms, California and noticed, he had a frame with over 1,000 BU Kennedys, on his wall. I asked him if he had any extra he wanted to part with, he said, NO! Ever since, I order what I want and never rely on someone else to show “pity.” I actually saw a glint in that old Marine’s eyes. I’ve often wondered if they remained on that wall, for very long. 🙂

I don’t think the back side of these notes will be any different than they were since 1976. By the way the ad looks from the BEF, you would assume they had a 2014 on the back. They did this last year and gave you the impression that the back was different. Victor or Ron, any word on when these Kennedy coins are going to be released? Happy collecting!

Victor DeCurtis May 16, 2014 at 8:46 am

Jac, please don’t tell me that I got sucked in, thinking these were different. I really don’t give a damn, about serial numbers matching, but a one time reverse was worth ordering. One thing I know, if they are the same as every other $2 bill, since 1976, they will be sent back, immediately. As for the Kennedy Gold .50c piece. don’t know, but it will be released, soon.

Victor DeCurtis May 16, 2014 at 8:57 am

I just sent an e-mail to the Money Factory Store.
“According to the e-mail I received, I and every one else was under the impression, the reverse side of the bills, would be with “2014”. Is this so, or will these $2 bills be just like every $2 bill, printed since 1976? I expect a timely answer.
Victor DeCurtis”

I just received this from the Money Store.
“OK. So, if you would, save the cost of sending them, credit my credit card
and cancel the order.

Yes. The 2 bills will be just like every $2 bill, printed since 1976. The
2014 is the folder cover image from an older note.

Man, this news, suck!

Victor DeCurtis May 16, 2014 at 12:18 pm

I just received an e-mail, saying they would cancel my order. I almost wasted $260.

Jack May 16, 2014 at 3:55 pm

Victor,
I wish I caught you in time. Not to upset you but, I already sold 3 of my 5 sets on E-Bay for $149 each plus shipping.

Victor DeCurtis May 17, 2014 at 8:41 am

Jack, a day late and a dollar short. Believe it or not, I wanted to give these to my grandchildren, for Christmas. Well, if you call them, there are five more available. $149?????? Damn, that’s what I call a good turnover. Very good. 🙂

Joe A. May 18, 2014 at 6:19 am

I’m not sure if I am allowed to ask this question here so here I go. If anyone does not want their $2 Set and not out to make 2 or 3 times profit from these sets I am looking for one to keep for myself & then leave it to my granddaughter in the coming years. I would really be very grateful if someone would sell me one if the price is not too high. I missed the sell by about an hour & I really do want just one set. If anyone has one send me an email at joea59@hotmail.com. Thank you
