Nice notes, Baxuss! Cool low serial number on that Dominican note, too! I like when that happens.

 

I got in these Hong Kong notes today. I see that I didn't upload my new Tongan notes, nor two recent Djibouti notes on here, but they're on Banknote bank. One of the Tongan notes is a nice radar serial number (if your into that sort of thing - I'm not too much, but it doesn't hurt to have it!).

The HSBC note is from 2011.

 

Thanks! That explains why I don't recall seeing it.

 

I'm anxiously awaiting the new nots from the BOC. I've seen the Maucau design online, and I like it a lot. Haven't seen the HK design - hope its a different design than the Macau note.

 

Both notes have essentially the same front design.

Hey, your riight about it being reminiscent of the Angolan notes. I was thinking that the back was reminding me of the Guinea notes designs of a few years back, but the front is much more like the Angolan notes. I haven't a book t o look in right note, but I'd bet it was done by the same printing company for sure.

 

Nice note btw!

The creature on back of the Iranian note is Simurgh, a mythological bird. In Iranian art (an on this Iranian note) Simurgh is mostly shown with a dog's head and claws of a lion. In Iranian mythology Simurgh once saved a baby called Zal on top of Mt. Demavend, and grew him up. Zal became the father of a famous Iranian hero...

Nice note Dave, Do you now have all the "Experimentals"? Also, I think they were testing the paper on that version, do see any difference compared to other notes durring that time?

 

 

I qdont have ALL the experimentals, but I do have the R ans S ones. I might go for the ores at some point, but for now I'm going to focus on a couple other areas. As for a difference - well my first impression of the S was that there was nothing discernible. And that was to be expected, as the whole experiment was evidently unconclusive (I haven't found anything to state what the REAL differences were in the first place) .. But when I got the R not I was at first thinking it was a bit thinner. I at first dismissed this as it is a VF grade (sold as VF-xf) while my S is a Au-unc. I will try to get some time this evening to better compare them side by side.

Are there more experimentals other than the R and S? I must know!
