    I can narrow it down just a bit. It is not Korean. ;)

    I checked the top symbol rectangle with the line through it and it is Chinese for "middle" so now I know it is Chinese currency but I can not find any reference to this note in my World Currency volume or on the internet.

    £10 or tenners as they are known in Scotland were rather more like the current $2 in circulation in modern America - you know they exist but up until the very early 1970s it was not a popular denomination and was only rarely printed and at that only by two of the ten banks that were printing banknotes in the 20th century in Scotland. The most popular denomination for larger transactions was the £20 note and they were printed in large print runs several times a year.

    But the tenner OTOH was a different story altogether. There was a brief printing in 1942 and then nothing more until those stocks were used up in 1963 - Bank of Scotland and their printers Waterstons and Sons were already working on new designs mainly with a colour change but couldn't come up with something that the directors liked so they went with the tried and true, but with blue in the centre of the note. Curiously the paper for this note is known to have been made for the 1942 dated notes but not used - so it was over 20 years old when these were printed. A popular print run for £20 notes from the 1940s on was anywhere from 20k to 50k notes - but this £10 from 1963 only saw 5k a print run. The tenners from Bank of Scotland and Royal Bank are much much scarcer than even the £20 notes.

    When this note was released in 1963 it had the approximate equivalent face value of about US $29.

    From My experience (I wish someone would educate me a bit here) everything I’ve seen from COOK ISLANDS (coins) has always been some kinda replica stuff. This $3-spot is really pretty ... and it’s a $3-dollar bill.

    The ZAMBIA bills usually have a leader guys portrait on them. This one just has pretty pics. The COSTA RICA bill has a guys head on it but at least he looks like an old-time guy not somebody current.

    Although the auction I attend in Bangkok got postponed after I left the US, I was still able to do a little business through Facebook and pick up some currency that just finally got graded and shipped to me. Some Thailand fancy numbers and radar notes, post 1!
