  1. Well, I've looked in my knowledge base of stuff, but I certainly can't find it. Perhaps its unlisted, or just hidden really well. EDIT - I found it! They are not listed in the usual catalogs, so that's where I was going wrong. I did find them online, though. This is a 200 Cash banknote from the Yan Tai City Bureau - Year is 27, or 1938. See this link: Your note is, unfortunately, the one in the rear. http://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=1841&category=37780&lot=1611880
  2. Thanks Art! Here's another note I think has some interesting aspects. Argentina, 50 Pesos. New issue, picturing the Falkland Islands.
  3. I bought some notgeld recently. One of them is a small set from Oberammergau. There's a neat little history to the city, which these notes commemorate if you're interested. http://www.banknoteden.com/German_Notgeld_Oberammergau.html
  4. Here's a small note from French West Africa
  5. Got this note today. $1.50 from the Vermont State Bank in 1809.
  6. I got these in yesterday: A 2013 Guernsey 1 Pound note that is a Thomas De La Rue commemorative, showing his portrait on the back and a 1859 obsolete banknote from Hollidaysburg, PA. I don't know if they did this on purpose or not, but the $5 bill, with the large red roman numeral V was issued on Valentine's Day, Feb 14, 1859.
  7. Hm. I don't like them, but I would like to see more innovation in newer design of our currency in the future.

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here. What areas of banknote collecting are you into?
  9. Check out these sites http://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/coin_kingdom_llc/181/product/danish_west_indies_state_treasury_note_2_dollars_1898_pmg_64_epq/407343/Default.aspx http://www.ebay.com/itm/Danish-West-Indies-Denmark-P-8r-2-Dalere-Dollars-1898-RARE-EF-AU-/360725224354 Looks like a prize find.
  10. Not much of an error I'm afraid, These are more common than you'd think. The serial number has four leading zeroes, which gives it a little more 'oomph' if you will, but even still, this is not really considered a low serial number by a lot of collectors. I'd say there is no added value to the note myself.
  11. Welcome to the hobby! As a new collector, before you dive into buying a lot of expensive notes, I would recommend that you take some time and decide that you want the notes, and not pursue an impulse buy. There are those who will disparage the 3rd party graders, and those who will extol their virtues, it is up to you to decide for yourself. OK - 'Nuff said on that, as I don't want to lecture. There are several grading companies out there, and more popping up each year. As you may well know, the two largest are still PMG and PCGS and they have the best overall reputation thus far. While I have heard of some instances of over and under-grading, and even some mis - attribution of notes, those instances are, rare. We hear of them often because of the availability of the Internet forums and the desire to tell stories of unfortunate happenings... but they are, given the vast amount of notes out there, quite rare instances.I have not heard much of graded notes being forged. I do remember in the past couple of years that someone was seeing a note that they bought in China being a faked graded note, but that was only one instance. One way to aid in this is to check the serial number on the Holder the note is in. You can verify that this serial number corresponds to the note inside. Most grading companies offer this service. Here are the links for PMG: http://www.pmgnotes.com/grading/NoteVerification.aspx and the other link for PCGS: http://www.pcgscurrency.com/cert/ You can help to verify these notes in this manner. It is not an absolute guarantee, as a good counterfeiter will replicate this too, but I have not yet heard of anyone doing such a thing. Hope it all works out for you. If you get them, don't forget to share the images with us here! We love to see what others get, too.
  12. Hello Eugene! There are several sites that you can try. I found them easily on http://banknoteindex.com/ (Cannot link to actual images, sorry. just by typing in the country, denomination and year.

  22. In the hospital ? Sorry to hear that. I hope you're getting better at least. I Hope the new year brings better health. I've always enjoyed seeing your posts with new additions for your zoo. if you let them run wild again, I'd understand, but would miss seeing the new ones added. You've actually inspired me to get several notes for my own collection. It's more important to Take care of yourself first though and stay well. I agree with Art: That is a cool Congo note.
  23. Got this in today. Broken Banknote from the Bank of the River Raisen dated 1838.
