    I too got a Mauritanian note - but just the 50. I got it to add to my Musical Notes collection theme. Along with Solomon Islands and a Bulgarian note. The Mauritanian notes are a little different feel, alright. But I do like the overall designs. The Solomon Islands notes I have are VERY intense in saturated color.

    Pretty random assortment of some notes. I actually only wanted the 5000 Rupiah note, but the seller sent the others along as well. ... plus more, that I already had, and have posted previously.

    Like MMMM I have just received the pretty cool Armenian Noah's Ark commemorative note. A must have for MMMM! I also have an Azerbaijan 1 Manat featuring musical instruments. I will try to put up the link to my website with these instruments as well later this weekend.
  6. 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

    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.
  9. 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!

    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!

    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.
