  1. More images of the Nicaragua 200 Cordobas note discovery:
  2. Nicaragua 200 Cordoba polymer note discovery At the local flea/collector’s market last Friday, I was offered the following nine polymer partly printed Nicaragua 200 Polymer notes. It is impossible to tell whether they are the 2009 original issues or the 2012 reprints. I have to add that this market is located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and the vendor was not a local. I was told that these notes were salvaged from a waste paper treating facility. I know that in the past, quite a large number of currency notes including high denominations were found in these places – there are several in Indonesia. Due to generally very low unskilled wages, many people here are drawn to sift through paper and other waste in order to source items of value. It seems that, at first glance, the notes look similar; there are differences in the amount of times these items have been through the printing procedure. These are made using the Guardian method as mentioned on the Innovia Security website. Most of the security features appear to be absent except that some but not all notes possess “shadow images” or “iridescent features”(I don’t know how to tell them apart). For further comment, I will now download the images: This is the only example that I have without the signature of the president of BCN. The back of the note is completely blank. The only one like this of the lot. Here are the other images (following after this message): Many images printed on back. Note is one of two where the print includes the margin with plate number. Other side again showing plate number. As top example but far less details printed. Similar to previous. Other side has far less printing. More examples: Cut as per normal note Cut as per normal note Raised features with “200” and flower like symbol above signature Similar Several of these were contained in the lot. Appears correctly cut. Another type with more items printed. The most complete printed note of the lot lacking the security features plus serial numbers etc.
  3. Hello everyone First visit to this site in the 90s and noughties (2000-5) I obtained quantities of Russian coins dating from 1700 approx to 1970s. The better ones I had slabbed like the commemoratice roubles from the 19th century and the values are fairly easy to find on sixbid or individual and mainly US auction sites like Heriatage and Stacks Bowers. The reason this message on this thread is as follows; I also acquired a set of coins from Bank of Foreign Trade of the USSR Commemorative 1 Rouble Copper NIckel Coins containing five coins in Proof strike from 1965 until 1977. Do anyone of you out these knoiw how many of these were struck (in the box as well as possible), who they were issued to and of course not least of all, where they are (have been offered) and what prices paid. I live in Indonesi a and am ready to help members of this forum if visiting my sunny isles. Thanks in advance!
