Santiago, Welcome to Coinpeople!

 

I've looked at your blog and I must say that I am quite impressed with your presentation of banknotes. You certainly do have some rarities there, especially with the autographed proofs. I especially like your layout with the banknotes and additional photos depicting the models and the areas shown on the banknotes. Your blog was indeed a treat to visit and I have added it to my bookmarks. Thank you for sharing your site with us! :bthumbsup:

Another Welcome, Santiago (I didn't know that was equal to James!).

 

Your blog is really wonderful. The notes, the way you've laid out images and certainly the content. You've done quite the detective work on these items! For those who may not have noticed it, Santiago has is a link at the top right of the page to a translator tool so that it can be translated to English.

 

Thanks

Dave

Hello. Today I post a new interesant item in my Blog.

 

In this new post I explain that mean the serial numbers of banknotes in french west africa and mathematical calculations to obtain them. All this with a case study.

 

The French government, throughout history use different methods to obtain the serial numbers.

this method is the banque de france numbering system

 

This method is for the bank notes of french west africa.

after 1940, preogressively, the note number was increased to 100.000 notes instead of 1000

No hay problema. Esta es una area que me interessa mucho, por los diseños y los colores. Y no te interessan los de Africa Equatorial? Tambien tinenes unos diseños y dibujos como este de 5000 frs.

Hola de nuevo. Conozco el sitio de Dave. Es muy bueno. Los billetes de Afr occ me interesan y de hecho tengo bastantes pero como es imposible coleccionar todos, de momento me he especializado en billetes de Afr Occidental. De momento voy a ser lo mas exahustivo posible con los billetes de las colonias occidentales. Si te interesan billetes de dictadores hay unos muy bonitos de BokassaSaludos!¿ que te ha parecido el tema de Monique Cras?. Pronto escribiré datos de esta pintora
