I was a NATO and Air Force flyer and lived in Germany and the Netherlands but I moved to Italy for family. I have dual citizenship.


I like the 50.000 note. I had a similar one but it was stolen :-(

Nice Ceylon & Russian Baxuss. Guess I'll get one of these Ceylon notes soon.


Here's a few more. I somehow lost the scanner after scanning the front sides.



Slovakia 10 Korun Specimen 1939




Czechoslovakia 20 Korun 1949




Czechoslovakia 100 Korun 1989 (Was the only missing part of last issue)




Greece 1000 Drahmai 1935

They issued this series in two different versions, one in Serbian (Cyrillic), one in Bosnian (Roman), as I recall. In this Serbian issue, if you look at the name of Ivo Andric, they used the wrong letter to spell Andric's name. My understanding is that this was very offensive to the Serbian-speaking population of Bosnia.




The last letter, which is written on the note as ђ should actually be ћ. They are two completely different letters.


The 5 convertible mark note also has an error, although it wasn't this blatant. On the reverse of both language notes, they used only the Roman spelling of five, "PET" rather than "PET" for the Bosnian and "ПET" for the Serbian.




Thanks for the explanation. This would qualify the former note be an error issue then?

Here are some Japan 2000 yen notes, which my initial research tells me are actually circulating commems (???) and not too popular in Japan. While I've been to Japan a few times, I never really saw these and was using a lot of plastic for biz purposes. I actually got these out of an ATM in Houston at Bush Intercontinental Airport. I was trying to help my uncle get some currency, and to avoid the lines he wanted to use the machine (I never buy foreign currency at airports but that is another story). I of course fat fingered a button and istead of Euros got him Yen. He was able to switch them for Euros but I kept these two notes because they were cool.
