A beautiful note, none-the-less. And, just so you know, I complain often.  I can't help it:  I'm Polish!  ;)

European Paper Money / Malta KGVI

This nice note from Malta should turn up in the mailbox soon.

Being a wartime note, it's uniface.  No time and ink to waste printing both sides, could cost the war, eh?

South American Paper Money / More British Guiana

Proteus was complaining about this issue being monocolored, so here is the Ten Dollar note from this series.

(No, I don't own this note !  The photo is from a recent auction.)  This is from the Bruce Smart collection of Commonwealth banknotes, and got a very pretty penny at auction.

South American Paper Money / Re: Argentina 1869

The specialized issues from Latin America are really fascinating.  Almost all are classic Victorian and Edwardian design motifs, produced by the American Bank Note Company in New York.

Very nice notes.  I've always liked these "cattlemen" and "frontier" styled designs, even though I try to limit myself by staying away from Specialised Issues (though that does not always work out).  Good to see something not from Hong Kong  :P

North American Paper Money / Bancos de Mexico

Couple of purchases came in today, a Banco de Durango silver Peso remainder from 1893, and a nice Banco Nacional Dos Peso, both in UNC condition.

The Durango note features some lovely allegorical figures and motifs, while the Banco Naciional note features Sra. Teruel on the left, and a lovely vignette of two prospectors examining their find on the right.

Paper Money Collecting / Graded Note No. 100

I'm new to graded banknotes, my first purchase was from Cortes, a forum member, last year.  Since then, I've been assiduously acquiring certified and graded notes, here is my 100th purchase, made today.

Here is another O&G Bank issue from 1869.  Oxandaburu and Garbino were two wealthy ranchers on the Pampas, and needed to open a bank to aid in developing their own estancias and the Argentine economy in general.
