Valuations and Grading / Re: 2017 Modern Issues Catalgue
« Last post by Proteus on May 28, 2017, 09:37:36 PM »
Unfortunately, as I add catalogue values I cannot see the previous years values at the same time.  I'm basically editing a blank "spreadsheet".  In the future I will write some code that will notify me of any trends when I submit new catalogue values, but for now I've got nothing of the sort -- just what I catch as I go.

As a side note, I will probably be coding a pretty complex set of functions concerning valuations.  These will be used throughout the site to provide members with more accurate valuation data, as well as to valuate collections that members have posted on their accounts.

PS - just finished adding values for Cameroon/Cameroun.

North American Paper Money / Re: Old Haitian Notes

I used to be able to pick up pre-1900's banknotes from Haiti, in the lower denominations, for $10 - $30.  Now that's totally out of the question.

Lots of 'em, weren't there?  Far as I know, there were red, white, blue, green, and black armies, being respectively Bolsheviki, Mensheviki, Moscow Loyalists, Peasant opposed to crop seizures by any other Army, and the Anarchists.  The Anarchists used to be the front goons for the Bolsheviki, but were soon tossed out on their ear as a danger to Red Society.  I don't know of a note listing by flag other than in Pick.

The Reds were probably the first use of poison gas, on the Blue Army, in the forests around northern Moscow.

Well not to mention the series of separatist movements that popped up during the war as well. Personally the one I'd like to get was made by one of the so called "Green Armies" which opposed both the communist and White Russian forces.

Yes, General Deniken resigned his post and left for the west.  He exiled to Paris, until 1940, then rural exile in France for the remainder of the war.  The US took custody of the General in 1945 to prevent the French Communist Party from insisting on the Yalta Accords for the old war horse, they wanted to turn him over to Joseph Stalin for execution.

In 1945, the General came to the United States, until his death from a heart attack in 1947. 

I need to get serious about my Russian Civil War notes, everytime I acquire one it's exciting to me, and I enjoy the stories of the battles, exiles, betrayals, etc., on both sides.  Probably because of Capt. Marion Aten back when I was a kid.

I think you could have a very, very, nice collection of Civil War notes even if you collected nothing else.   The specialized catalog listings for them runs just over 50 pages.

I imagine with all the political turmoil dogging that country older issues would be harder to come by.

Definitely a nice piece. I've been slowly expanding my collection from in and around the Russian Civil War Era and man there was a tonne put out at the time. Denkin as I remember it eventually resigned his position and left the leadership to the Volunteer Army of Russia to Pyotr Wrangel who himself issued his own notes.

Yep China has always been the best case for a rework in my opinion.
