Antiques No-Show

Thomas Overbeck

From time to time I'll sneak in the name of one of my readers. Hopefully the "antique store owner" will be pleased. (And the lady there isn't the owner, just an employee.) :)

@Angus: If you can't get your name correct, how do expect the rest of us to get it right?

There is a little more logistics required here than is first appendant. A merchant in 1964 will be a little suspicious of receiving a $50 bill printed in 2009. So some of her major hunting will be for old currency, more so than old stuff.

I seem to recall a comic you did where she bought a new superhero comic back in 1939 (or so) and sold it in 2000 for big bucks. Hopefully, nobody noticed the date on the dime. The first appearance of the Joker or is she the joker?

Remember Doc Brown's briefcase full of currency organized by years? Cassie has something similar to that.

You could probably just take some $100 bills as far back as they'd reasonably be accepted as real, then break them up into smaller units of currency from that time period, then take those back as far as reasonable, and so on, until you have a bunch of $1 bills from 19whenever. You would be hoping that nobody would look close enough to notice the dates on the bills, but it would get easier as you go along, since before ~2000 the U.S. changed its bill designs less often. Plus, inflation would work to your advantage in doing this, as $1 in 19whenever is worth more than a $1 bill now.

Or, considering you know what the stock market is going to do and thus can likely get nearly-unlimited funding, you could always just buy a bunch of something that will be accepted in any time period, like gold, and exchange that for currency in the time period you want currency from.
