Recently,I bought 3 very nice notes from a certain member from Minnesota,Alex (Friedman);]

Bahamas 2001 $1.
Bahamas 2002 $1.
Singapore 1990 $2.

I received in the mail this morning a 50p. British postal order issued on the 4th of April 2005 in Cyprus here; 'UN NICOSIA BFPO 567. 04 AP 05'.This is interesting as it is a Field Post Office issue.This is a remainder issue,because the regulations on the back include the following clause 'This Order is issued in accordance with the relevant Scheme or Schemes under Section 28 of The Post Office Act 1969.' This Act has since been repealed & replaced with a new Act in 2000.I'll get more information later.

If you have bought anything in the banknote line,could you please leave a posting (including photos,if possible).

Aidan.

This is what I got today from a thrift store here, will post pictures soon as I can if anyone is interested.

1967 one peso Bank of Mexico
1968 one dollar Bahamas Monetary Authority (2 of them)
1990 one dollar Bank of Jamaica
1992 two dollars Bank of Jamaica
1991 five dollars Bank of Jamaica (2 of them)

So now someone please tell me what is the most I should have paid because I don't know anything about this currency, they looked nice and I bought them. I will blame all who have posted such nice pics of bank notes and forced me into addiction! :ninja: ;)

They're "Law" 1968, but could have been printed as late as 1973.

Alex,I know these are from Jordan.When were these issued? The AH & AD dates are there somewhere.

I picked up a plastic 1 Pound note from the Isle of Man last weekend.I knew that it was the Plastic Pound,as it is the only green coloured one.All
the others are purple.

Aidan.
