I created a series of Barack Obama Novelty Notes to commemorate the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States.
One customer bought a set of four notes like the ones shown here for $7.99.
He had the bright idea of taking them to the post office on the day of inauguration to have them post marked individually by hand.
There was a man waiting behind him at the post office counter. The man saw what was going on, and offered him $200 cash on the spot to buy these notes.
My customer wrote me about this incredible story.
