  3. Great looking notes under UV light regardless of condition.

  4. Condition and UV light make these note highly desirable.

    Ok - here's a few more I was able to squeeze in tonight. Just a quick set of UV photos with some old scans to compare to.

    My newest featured note....I really like the way that these little guys come out under the UV light.

    I have to say my favorite is the Canada $20.00. So far it's the only one that includes two different colors that florescent in UV light. I never knew that it had that before your post. Thanks man.

    Dear all,

    Apologies to interrupt this thread but I see that it's quite relevant to my question. :) Can I check with you all what type of UV light detector are you using?

    I am interested to get one to study more on banknotes. I saw on ebay there is this pen-like UV light detector which is very handy to carry around and inexpensive.
    Any of you using this?

    Thank you.

    Best regards

    I believe that any uv light at or slightly below 365 nm in wavelength will show almost all ultraviolet features that exist on current banknotes.

    Although effective for showing most UV features, a common black light does not reveal "true" UV features. Most black lights reveal only the visible part of the light spectrum. Good luck with your next eBay purchase.
