  1. This appears to be a type of banknotes called Notgeld. There were many types issued after World War One. Cities, states, companies, etc. would print these for use in the inflationary period after the war. There is too much to learn about the time period and the effects of notgeld for me to put here, but it is quite interesting and you should do some internet research on it if you are at all interested in it. Do be aware that there was A LOT of it printed and there were A LOT of issuers. As such, most of it is worth little even today. In the condition of your note, probably nothing unless it is extremely rare. This note is from a little later in the period of issue, and I could not find your exact note, but I did find a seller offering them from this town here: http://www.apcpapercollect.com/kellerpq.htm Also check out this site: https://notgeld.com/grossgeld-1918-1921/what-is-notgeld

  4. Latest Banknote purchases.

    Got some Colombian notes lately, and I have to say that the more I look at them the more I like them. While at first they seem somewhat muted in colors and rather bland overall, there are hidden gems inside. I've attached a scan of just one of these, with some hidden text, hidden animals, and great security features. With so many of the newer notes having what looks like bad photoshop renderings of pictures into engravings, it is nice to see some these with real engraving artwork, melding the trees, the animals and water with different styles.
  5. A little more holiday fun - from Hollidaysburg, PA! A large red note with a huge Roman Numeral V - just in time for Valentine's Day - and Dated February 14th, 1859!

  9. Banknotes fanatic

    Hello, Nice Site. Thanks for letting us know. The IBNS is worth it, in my opinion. There is a lot of people that can be contacted through there and they have a list of IBNS Member dealers as well, which you could be placed on the list if you join. There is a forum there that is hard to beat with a lot of people who are eager to help with any questions you may have. And there is still a lot more, as well, not the least of which is the IBNS Journal. Drop by and check out the site. There's some info available to non members, but the forum is open only to the members. Good luck with your web store!
  10. not legal tender

    From http://www.bep.gov/resources/lawsandregulations.html Legal Tender: A Definition Section 31 U.S.C. 5103. Legal Tender United States coins and currency (including Federal Reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal Reserve Banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues. Foreign gold or silver coins are not legal tender for debts. However, there is no federal statute which mandates that private businesses must accept cash as a form of payment. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether or not to accept cash unless there is a State law which says otherwise. From http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/legal-tender?s=t legal tender noun 1. currency that may be lawfully tendered in payment of a debt, such as paper money, Federal Reserve notes, or coins.
  11. My New Banknote Collections

    Wow! That's nice, especially as you have your dad involved. I tried to get my son interested, but he never has been. Actually, of all the people I know, other than through the Internet, none of them have any interest. A very few think it's 'cool, but not for them', but nothing more. I was surprised to find that my father and brother, who are both history buffs, have no interest either (even though it was my dad who gave me a note from France that started my interest in this hobby). While that makes it a unique hobby for myself, it is nonetheless a little lonely...especially when I get excited about a certain note and I have only my wife to feign interest in it, solely to humor me. From what I've seen so far, your collection is a nice one. Do you have any favorite notes? Mine is the note my father gave me: http://www.banknotebank.com/notes/897747A.jpg http://www.banknotebank.com/notes/897747B.jpg

  13. BIAFRA notes

    Yes, that's a keeper for sure. I've never seen one before, either. Must've escaped from the printers at some point. That seems to fall into more than one category. An error, a waste note that should have (probably should have) been destroyed but wasn't an it also goes into the replacement category as the note to have been replaced. As to more information, I'd suggest looking into finding an expert on world error notes, and to the world replacement notes authority, Dr. Ali Mehilba http://www.worldreplacement.com/#!contact/c1d94 Ali is a great guy whom I've collaborated with in the past, and I think he can at least point you in the right direction. Please let us know if you find anything out.
