Latest Banknote purchases.

You could do a whole theme collection from the socialists countries of pollutant belching factories on banknotes, I know Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia also had them. Curiously Russia preferred to just put different visages of the Kremlin on notes to remind people then who was boss. The reverse of the Czech 10kcs from 1960 has a factory in the background on the front and a dam on on the reverse it, no doubt not environmentally friendly.

There are a lot of countries that love the factory look for their notes. I quite like it as well especially when they notes are from the early 1900's.

 

Here is a North Korean Factory.

Very nice notes. I didn't realize the notgeld were running anywhere near that high.

 

 

Rarer notes are, Mainly in non paper. However I have a couple of paper notes that value about $300 they were nice pickups in a bulk lot of notes cost me 84 cents each :ninja:

I just got this one from the last Lyn Knight auction, my first McKinley! And my first PCGS graded note. I must admit I prefer the PMG holder to the PCGS, as this holder just seems flimsy while the PMG holder is more rigid. This note is graded VF 25, as a mule, and was from the Rickey Collection. Not sure what that means, so if anyone has any idea, let me know!

The reverse is well-centered, Jeff. I think the vertical folds just outside of "United States of America" and "Five Hundred Dollars" are actually complimentary considering its wear. As for PCGS vs PMG, I'll have to go look at my holders.

 

I bought a nice note last week but I am not satisfied with the scan. I keep meaning to photograph it, but I'm lazy.

Thanks! Those are really neat. Not just the beautiful engraved scene, but the idea that a banknote can have a reverse with virtually no other writing on it, almost as if they decided the back is really "extra space" and they might as well just use it for a nice picture.

Well if you like that, then you should check out the other ghana notes from 1965. They are similar in that regard, but with less attractive scenes. Most have a building, but this one: Link is rather pleasing to look at.

I stopped by the BEP store in DC yesterday and bought some more 4 piece uncut sheets 1, 2, 5 old 2006 and new 2006 (Colour) and 10$ (colour)

 

Not super exciting but I have special frames for them and enjoy them as art work also.

 

Ciao,

I was tempted to buy single notes of the Richmond FRB. Saw them on sale and thought that was a neat idea. So I can sympathize with your desire to purchase the sheets.
