    Yep, always did like the Honduras notes, especially radar notes: rdr_Honduras_1Lempira_0808080_face.jpg rdr_Honduras_BC0007000_2004_face.jpg rdr_Honduras_AT0008000_2004_face.jpg rdr_Honduras_T6664666_2006_face.jpg rdr_Honduras_M9994999_2003_face.jpg

    Both the notes and the numbers are amazing.

    I did manage to pick up a repeater note recently - probably my best numbers find. 505050

    1985-89 New Zealand $1 Queen Facing Forward / Russell. Condition is not great, but the number is.

    Glad you like them and thanks for your kind words. I have discovered a dealer who sells really nice bank notes quite cheaply, so that makes me happy. Here is one from Sao Tome E Principe. 2013 ST 5000 dobras.jpg

    This is a regular (non-star) $20 radar note printed (only 6.4M in this group) for the 2017 series. Printed in FW in Jan 2019. I consider it a KEY note in the series.

    I'm forever amazed at what I stumble across while sorting and cataloging and today was truly amazing. Found these two notes which
    are causing me some real eye-strain trying to figure out how these happened.
    Of course these are just "normal" 1950 $10 FRNs from the Chicago district. However, upon closer inspection of the Back Plate numbers
    the blood began to pump a little faster. Why? Well,
    Note with serial number G96901386A has BP number 1412 thus it is a NARROW variety
    Note with serial number G98901387A has BP number 1287 thus it is a WIDE variety
    So, I reckon these two notes are considered a "changeover pair".

    A magnificent well printed note using multiple pass printing developed by Homer Lee Banknote Company in the USA in the 1880's. Homer Lee Banknote Co was purchased by American Banknote Company in 1886. American Banknote Company purchased Bradbury Wilkinson in 1903 and the original printing techniques developed by Homer Lee Banknote in the 1880's are present in this note printed by BW&Co in England. The first three printings were lithograph underprints resulting in the dynamic colouring in the background of the note. The final printing is intaglio with the deep blue engraving. All in all it was a fairly labour intensive effort that was costly but worth it as forgery was made very difficult. The only other printer utilising similar printing techniques in the late 19th century was Giesecke & Devrient of Germany.

    Northern Ireland - Ulster Bank £5 1st October 1940 printed by Charles Skipper and East of London using mechanically engraved steel plates. The same basic design dates into the later 19th century - really the only changes were necessitated by the partition of Ireland in 1922 and Dublin disappearing on the bottom of the face of the note whilst "Northern Ireland Issue" appeared over the vignette. For a great many years Ulster Bank had fairly plain and older designed notes until the adoption of polymer notes in the past few years - new, modern and fresh vertical designed notes that I will image at a later time.

    @techwriter - I always thought the "payable in London" clause on the IRL£ notes was a bit odd. The Ploughman notes were payable in Dublin. But the Lady Lavery notes are classic, I love them.

    I don't do a lot of currency but I have accumulated some. I might need some help as I go along. Here is one.
