I have 1s and 5s to trade.

 

They are great!

 

I am really impressed with the work.

 

Anyone who needs to trade should PM me.

I got me some 10's and a couple 20's today. Had to go shovel a lotta' snow before I could look at them closely, though. They are pretty-dang-cool! Good job! The foil strip was a nice touch, too. :ninja:

 

10's - serials:

AC 0000007

AC 0000013

AC 0000027

AC 0000031

AC 0000044

 

20's - serials:

AD 0000007

AD 0000017

 

I'm not much of a serial number guy myself (even though I have two 7's already), so whoever would like to trade, lemme know!

Received my notes... these are cool :clapping:Not sure how I am going to do this yet. Maybe try to fill a few holes between ser. nos. I have:

 

One Coinbucks;

 

AA0000003

AA0000008

AA0000019

AA0000034

AA0000034... Should this have been a star note :ninja: Should this be considered a Major Error since there are two of the same ser. nos.? ;)

AA0000038

AA0000046

AA0000071

AA0000096

AA0000105

 

Five Coinbucks;

 

0000010

0000019

0000021

0000038

0000039

0000044

i had a feeling there might've been a printing problem with the ones. Lol...I had so many sheets of the ones I just cut them out and let them be. I spent all of my attention on the five's and higher! Hmmm...if there's a duplicate of that #34, there should at least be two more duplicates out there as well! At least two, just because they printed out in sheets of three. ;)

 

I have another error sitting here, except they're a trio of fivers. heheh...the paper feeder had a double feed and these came out single sided. I might use them in a future contest/giveaway.

 

Let me know if anybody finds any more errors!

(besides the sloppy cutting job!) ;)

Coinbucks can of course be swapped for guineas too! Both currencies are worth the same value in relation to each other. $20 is 20gs.

 

Does that always have to be? I was thinking this morning of starting a currency trading operation to create a market driven exchange rate mechanism. The only catch is that you have to do them in even amounts to the note size. Like if you wanted to bid 1.2 coinbucks for 1 guinea, your minimum trade would be 5 guineas for 6 coinbucks. You could do smaller increments, but your minimum trade would increase, like moving to 1.19 from 1.20 would require a minimum trade of 100 guineas for 119 coinbucks.

Is that true? Did I get enough ones and fives to trade them for 10s and 20s? Are the relative populations like that?

 

If so, it seems that ultimately, at even trades, everyone would be left with exactly one of each kind of note. Is that correct?

Roughly. Have you recieved your allocation of guineas yet?

 

The first delivery should get you one of each at least, you might get duplicates along the way because some members might decide to collect differently, i.e serial runs of $1 notes and thus dispense with all their others...

 

This intial run is an experimental one to see how this kind of project will work, one i'm keen to see the results of.

Does that always have to be?  I was thinking this morning of starting a currency trading operation to create a market driven exchange rate mechanism.  The only catch is that you have to do them in even amounts to the note size.  Like if you wanted to bid 1.2 coinbucks for 1 guinea, your minimum trade would be 5 guineas for 6 coinbucks.  You could do smaller increments, but your minimum trade would increase, like moving to 1.19 from 1.20 would require a minimum trade of 100 guineas for 119 coinbucks.

 

 

This is something that i think should be considered further down the line. My main aim, or at least my role in this project as i see it thus far is to set up two currencies (thanks very much to San Miguel for helping me out by volunteering to do the coinbucks!), and to facilitate trade between the two.

 

I see this as setting the foundations, once it's up and running, if someone wants to sit down figure out an exchange rate, gather together all interested parties and take over the project from me, and perhaps extend it or take it further. Say trying to rekickstart McDoo's idea of using these notes as actual coinpeople currency and using them in auctions or whatever then step forward now!

 

The main issue was getting the notes out there to the participants and the work involved, this (as i'm sure all those involved in the printing side of this project will testify to), is ALOT of work and preparation. But the notes are starting to get out there now, so one problem in the initial attempt at this is being remedied but it takes time.

 

So far all i've included is denominations upto 20, i refused adamantly to go higher due to the fact that four denominations (or even three) is a heck of alot of printing as it is. If you start going to $50, $100, $500 etc. then the amount of $1 being printed goes up considerably because otherwise you run into 'shortage of change' problems.

 

 

If we just keep reeling off lower denom notes then the amount of those will gradually build up and that's when the 50s and 100s start to be introduced.

 

 

The playing field on this one is as big as you want to make it, i just want to get the ball rolling, beyond that... well we can all sit down and discuss, make up some kind of Monetary agency council that decides on the mintage figures, who are employed as mints, mintage ratios and coinbuck/guinea/future currency exchange rates. And of course we'd need someone committed to run it, i'll be heading back to my old stamping ground of running PCI amongst other things so whilst i'm happy to assist and advise if required, there'll need to be a new director of operations beyond this initial starter project.

 

 

So if anyone has ideas, any at all then don't be shy!

:ninja: Great notes! I have:

 

Ten:

 

AC 0000006

AC 0000014

AC 0000023

AC 0000030

AC 0000037

 

Twenty:

 

AD 0000002 - This one is cut bigger than the rest of the notes

AD 0000006 - This one is cut too much off top and bottom, top: most of the capital lettters are at the edge of the bill. Bottom: Webmaster and Treasurer is effected.

 

Wanna trade anyone? ;)

"if there's a duplicate of that #34, there should at least be two more duplicates out there as well! At least two, just because they printed out in sheets of three."

 

 

Ahhh, maybe this should be my collecting scheme....corner the market on all of the #34's. You never know maybe this will end up being the "key" No. OK anybody out there have a One Coinbuck note ser. no. AA 0000034 they would like to get rid of cheap? :ninja:

 

Seriously Mike you did a great job on these. Thank you for your efforts.

AEtheling, Thanks to you are in order also. I haven't thoroughly researched these notes... well actually I tried, but they are not in any of the reference books I have (probably too new) :ninja:, but this seems to have been a joint effort. In any case neat project!
