Valuations and Grading / Re: 1980 2x 100 yuan WITH SAME SERIAL NUMBER

Some knucklehead might have spent 200 Yuan on them, but the notes are worthless.  Even a collector of forgeries will turn up their nose at modern counterfeits in this poor condition.

If you insist on trying to make money from counterfeits, put them on Ebay and auction them off as counterfeits, you'll get something for them.

@Vadgal:  unfortunately these seem like forgeries.  It is ridiculous that china would not implement any security features on their banknotes ... but then again this was China, and in 1980.
Do not tell me how much they can cost?

Asian Paper Money / Admiral Kolchak Note
« Last post by Paxbrit on February 17, 2018, 05:49:04 PM »
I can't believe I did not already have this little note, the 50 Kopeck issue of 1919, for Admiral Kolchak and his Provisional Siberian Administration, one of the several factions fighting the Bolsheviks for control of Asian Russia.  This was printed by the American Bank Note Co., under a contract from the British, who supported the monarchists, with Japanese and American assistance, as well.

Admiral Kolchak was captured by the Bolshies and shot in early 1920.

Lots of these little notes around, nicely engraved, with the double-headed eagle of the Romanov Dynasty.  Now a century old, but not a scarce note by any means, centering and storage issues are the main problem for the collector, but nice grades are fairly common.

European Paper Money / Re: New Armenia issue
« Last post by Paxbrit on February 17, 2018, 07:35:45 AM »
I think Grigory in Armenia sold a bunch of these in the last couple of days, his offer prices went up to $10.50 apiece !

That's still the best deal out there by $2.03, and free post to boot, makes it the best price by $4.53.

Bought a trio of these, one for a raw note, and two more to tuck away in the great appreciation gamble.

Yeah, the only proper listing for this multi-year series is the initial Pick No., P114, and then sub-numbers for each subsequent issue, P114a, P114b, P114c, and so on.

Paper Money Collecting / Re: Post Your Polymers !
« Last post by Proteus on February 16, 2018, 09:38:19 PM »
This Romanian note was the very first Polymer note I ever owned.  I got it as part of a pack of 20 or 30 notes, and I did not even know polymer notes existed until I received it (it was early on in my collecting, when I knew even less than now).
