Hi everyone.

A friend who worked in Equatorial Guinea (Embassy of Spain) has given me this banknote. Notice that Equatorial Guinea is the only country that was a spanish colony in Africa. The banknote is circulated but in very good condition.

I just finished putting my website together and until I get a proper domain name, it's at this slightly hokey website address:




As a highlight to my newest acquisitions, here's a sampling that I picked up from the Maastricht show in late April:


The whole Slovenia 1990/1 set from P-A1 to P-10 (see PA1 and P-9A below - I love the orange-ish coloring of that note)






New Zealand 10/- from 1934:




And these awesome Italian, long thin notes (P-86, 87):




And finally, my favorite Haiti note (P-15):




I think I got about 50 notes at the show. Had an opportunity to buy a Gilbert and Ellice Islands note buy the 14,000 euro pricetag was a bit too steep for me. :sorry:

Got this in today. I've been wanting to get some colonial and continental issues for a long time. This is my first and I really like it. I'd eventually like to got one from the 13 colonies, and La Louisiane and Northwest Territory, along with one each of the 14 emissions of the colonial notes. It will take some time, but I think it would be neat to have a representative set such as that. Unfortunately, as I have embarked on this with one note, I've recently read a couple of "Invest in Colonials Now!" articles. - Sigh - same thing happened to me with French African and Early Chinese Republic notes. But then, if it was too easy, it wouldn't be worth it I suppose.

Nice notes everyone. I really like the Uzbekistan notes RBethea has. The printing style reminds me of teh early Tibetan notes.


And that 1 Korun from 1940 that Cemars has - that notes colors are always striking.
