The fun has already begun for numismatists in the opening weeks of 2010 at Heritage's annual Florida United Numismatics (FUN) auction.
Aside from coins, the auction also featured a number of exceptionally valuable banknotes, among them an uncirculated $5,000 Light Green Seal Federal Reserve Note from 1934.
The note sold last Thursday, for an impressive $97,750.
It originated in Dallas, which remains one of the most avidly collected districts for Federal Reserve Notes, especially for high denominations.
Billed by Heritage as its "finest example" from the district to appear at auction in five years, the note boasts fresh bright paper, a colourful overprint and four sizeable margins with razor-sharp corners.
In evidence of its authenticity, the note bears a serial number officially recorded as uncirculated.
Some lots are still open for live bidding, more details on which can be found at Heritage's website. Alternatively you can view our list of other exceptional, rare and valuable coins which are currently available on the market.
