  1. I recently read a PMG article titled "Collection Inspiration: Women Writers". In the article a Ukrainian note is referenced, the 200 Hryven banknote, featuring Lesya Ukrainka on the front of the note. In the article a brief description was given about the Poetess and the note, PMG chose to highlight the 2nd series note (good choice) and I thought I would take the opportunity to expand on the evolution of the note itself. 

    After Ukraine declared independence from the USSR in 1991 the two countries remained tethered to one another monetarily. Russian rubles circulated freely in Ukraine and were used in conjunction with the newly released karbovantes coupons (karbovantsi for 2 -4 , karbovantsiv for 5 or more). When circumstances dictated that the two countries sever all monetary ties completely, on November 12 1992, this meant that the coupons were now the sole currency in Ukraine, to be used for all transactions. An exchange rate of ruble to karbovantes was established as 1:1 and the sum of exchange was without limit. This parting of ways lead to massive inflation (up to 11,000%) with the coupons and the need for monetary reform was immediate. The Ukrainian government had been working on a national currency as early as 1991 and the first Hryvnia banknotes were designed and printed by CBNC in 1992 with a second issue in 1994 by TDLR, but finalization of the new currency and distribution wouldn't happen until September 2, 1996 when the hryvnia was officially introduced as Ukraine's national currency, the exchange rate of karbobanets to hryvnia was set at 100,000 : 1. The NBU issued 1,2,5,10, 20, 50 and 100 hryvnia banknotes into circulation, these were the 1st issued notes of hryvnia. The first issue notes were a mix match of printers, artists and designs making the fist issue seem inconsistent. There were two different designs for the 1 hryven released on the same date from two different printers (CBNC in 1992 and NBU in 1994), the 2, 5, 10 & 20 were printed by the CBNC in 1992, the 50 and 100 were printed by TDLR in (estimate) 1994 and are a completely different design from the lower denominations. Both the 50 & 100 are considered 2nd issue notes even though they were released at the same time as the 1st issue notes. The 2nd issue notes are again a mix match of printers and designs the 1, 2, & 20 were printed by the NBU the 5, 10, 50, 100 & 200 were printed by TDLR. The 200 hryven note was issued 5 years after the 2nd series was first issued, again this note was presumably printed in 1994 which would mean these notes were in a vault for 7 years prior to being released. The NBU took over all banknote design and printing in 1997 and has printed all Ukrainian banknotes since.

    So the first hryvnia series not having a 200 Hryven note means that this denomination does not have as many design changes as some of the lower value notes. (Although the 1, 2, 5 & 10 hryvnia banknotes have since been discontinued (starting with the 4th series) and replaced by coins.) Below is the first 200 hryven note, printed in 1994 and issued in 2001, it was replaced in 2007 by the 3rd series note and remained in circulation until Oct 1, 2020 when it ceased to be a means of payment and was no longer accepted as a cash payment in Ukraine. Artistic design wise, it's a good first effort but not very flattering to the subject. The portrait was taken from images of the poetess later in life. The color pattern, portrait and overall design leave much to be desired.

    Here is the 3rd series 200 Hryven note (2nd 200 hryven note), the artists and NBU pretty much knocked it out of the park with this design. This is probably the most popular modern Ukrainian note, design wise, and deservedly so.

    Finally, here is the 4th series (3rd 200 hryven note). Just some small tweaks to the overall design from the 3rd series note to this one. A toned down color palette, sharper portrait and more stylized reverse design are the major changes.

    The subject matter of the 200 hryven note has remained the same throughout, a portrait of Lesya Ukranika on the front and a depiction of the entrance tower of Lutsk Castle (or Lubart's Castle) in Lutsk where she live for a short time.

    Born Larysa Petrivna Kosach - Kvitka, she was forced to adopt the pseudonym Lesya Ukrainka at the time of here first published poem, as Ukrainian language publications were illegal at that time in the Russian Empire. Because of this many of here Ukrainian language publications were printed in Western Ukraine, which at the time was under Austro-Hungarian rule, and were then smuggled into Kiev for distribution. She was a prolific writer of poems, plays, short stories, and sociopolitical articles and essays. Some of the early inspiration for her early writings came from the works of Taras Shevchenko and Ivan Franko, both of who are featured on Ukrainian currency, the 100 & 20 Hryven notes respectively. Ukrainka was vocal advocate for freedom of speech, women's rights and an independent Ukrainian state free from Czarist rule. On August 1, 1913 after an almost life long battle with extrapulmonary tuberculosis of the bones she died at a Georgian health resort at the age of 42, four years prior to Ukraine gaining a brief but chaotic independence starting in 1917 until 1920.

    Here is one of her poems titled Contra Spem Spero (Hope Against Hope)

    Thoughts away, you heavy clouds of autumn!
    For now springtime comes, agleam with gold!
    Shall thus in grief and wailing for ill-fortune
    All the tale of my young years be told?

    No, I want to smile through tears and weeping.,
    Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
    Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
    I want to live! You thoughts of grief, away!

    On poor sad fallow land unused to tilling
    I'll sow blossoms, brilliant in hue,
    I'll sow blossoms where the frost lies, chilling,
    I'll pour bitter tears on them as due.

    And those burning tears shall melt, dissolving
    All that mighty crust of ice away.
    Maybe blossoms will come up, unfolding
    Singing springtime too for me, some day.

    Up the flinty steep and craggy mountain
    A weighty ponderous boulder I shall raise,
    And bearing this dread burden, a resounding
    Song I'll sing, a song of joyous praise.

    In the long dark ever-viewless night-time
    Not one instant shall I close my eyes,
    I'll seek ever for the star to guide me,
    She that reigns bright mistress of dark skies.

    Yes, I'll smile, indeed, through tears and weeping
    Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
    Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
    I shall live! You thoughts of grief, away!

    (Translations will vary)

    In addition to the 200 hryven banknote Lesya Ukrainka is also featured on postage stamps, coins and medals of Ukraine, below is the 1,000,000 karbovantsiv NCLT coin.

  2. So we're about 17 days away from the cut-off for consideration in the 2020 Registry Awards. The ad campaigns so to speak are in full swing - I've gotten the emails, seen the Instagram and Facebook posts. It's hard to miss when you follow their social media and spend time here. Anyway...

    This has gotten me thinking about how far the Zimbabwe set has come in the last year - something I take a lot of pride in. While my 3rd dollar set has been largely static at 92%, this year I think I've brought my 4th dollars from about 45% to 100%, my 2019-present series from 0% to 100% (as soon as the $20 comes in the mail in a few days) and made by biggest strides by far (IMO) in building out a 1st dollar set with an increasing number of varieties. I think my signature set has gone from having about 65 notes and about 90 slots to (soon) 104 notes with 110 slots.

    But I'm kind of kicking myself for something - I never screen-capped or made a record of what the set looked like at this time last year.

    PMG, unlike NGC, doesn't seem to save and post an archived record of what the #1 set in each category is each year - not that this would have completely solved my problem though because not all of my sets are #1 ranked. But it would have helped.

    So, I'm really kicking myself for that. Because I can't help but feel like it'd be cool to be able to see how the set grew and developed from Dec 2019 to (soon) Dec 2020, not just in terms of % completion but all the work I've been putting into refining my descriptions - including attempts I've made in some areas to reign myself in and make myself say less and not go on unnecessary and self-indulgent tangents too often.

    Side Note: But as my Venezuela hyperinflation set starts to flush out with a full set of Fuertes notes and some Soberano notes, I think I'm going to make a Signature set for those next year so I can present that set the way I want to. I'm also going to have to decide what i want to call it. I've considered naming the sets "Gradually, then suddenly: Zimbabwe" and "Gradually, then suddenly: Venezuela," but I'm not sure I like that and I'm not sure that the referenced quote fits Venezuela in the same way it fits Zimbabwe (purely IMO).

  3.  The last update by the BEP was for the fiscal Month of September 2020, this cover the Western Currency Facilities cover the 2017A series of notes. The only One Dollar notes that were printed were series 2017A E/A and E/B printed at the Washington DC Facility and for Western Currency Facility were the 2017A L/C series of One Dollar notes. This may be last set of notes to be printed under the current Secretary of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States.

    With the election over and Joe Biden as newly elected President and with a new cabinet that will be names, we may see a new series of notes starting in mid-2021 with a new Secretary of the Treasury and a new Treasurer of United States. Also with the first woman Kamala Harris as VP, we may see a woman on the Twenty Dollars bill that was turn down by the other "GUY" in the White House, this would be a first and would be the right time.

    Trump Disses "Harriet Tubman" reworked of the Twenty Dollars bills. The existing Secretary of Treasury Steve T. Mnuchin is correct when he says the reason for the delaying the long-planned reworked of the twenty dollars bill, is that he's got his hands full at this time is fighting counterfeiting. "The New York Times" quoted senior Treasury officials as saying that Mnuchin was worried that Trump might cancel the Tubman bill altogether, so he opted to avoid the inevitable outcry by delaying the release of the bill from next year to 2022 or 2028. The release date was to be next year, on the 100th anniversary of the constitutional amendment that acknowledge a Woman's right to vote. The information above was in the LOS ANGELES TIMES EDITORIAL section on Friday May 24, 2019.  

      

     

  4. There are 18 Disney dollar competitive sets, only 3 of which are in use for a total of 25 registered sets.  For Large Size National Bank Notes there are 6 competitive sets, all are used for a total of 176 registered sets.  For Small Size National Bank Notes, there are two competitive sets, both are used with a total of 141 registered sets.  Can't NBN collectors get as many competitive sets as the Disney dollar collector?  Or at least a few type sets like the Wavin' Mickey or Proud Goofy?  Disney Dollars get denomination sets ($1, $5, $10, $50).  That would be neat for NBNs; I'd prefer the $20 NBN denomination set myself.

  5. Counterfeiting of paper money in North America dates back to the very first emissions.  The only Massachusetts 1690 bills that survive today are raised bills; genuine bills on which the denomination was altered, or raised, to a higher denomination.  Counterfeits were a problem in all of the 13 colonies from the beginning.  Free money was the motivation for the counterfeiters was, for the first 85 years.  That all changed in 1775 when the British placed counterfeit May 10, 1775 $30 Continental bills into circulation.   

    These very rare counterfeit bills represent the first tactical use of counterfeits.  The objective of the British was to undermine confidence in the paper money of the Continental Congress.  The first bills were not very convincing and were probably viewed as more of an irritation than a real threat.  The bills were printed from a relatively crudely engraved plate and are easily spotted.   As the American revolution progressed the British counterfeiting operations improved, and the counterfeit bills became a real threat to the colonial economy.  The rampant counterfeiting of the May 20, 1777 and the April 11, 1778 emissions forced the early recall of the bills, and significantly undermined confidence in the currency.  The British not only printed counterfeit bills, they encouraged the use of counterfeits by sympathizers and even issued propaganda heralding the quality and number of the counterfeits in circulation.

    The pictured bill is an example of the first shot fired by the British in the economic battlefield of the American Revolution.  These are very rare counterfeits with less than 10 examples known today.  They are easily identified becuase they were printed from engraved plates, rather than typeset.  This example has evidence of mounting and paper pulls on the face, but is collectable none the less.  

    Eric Newman wrote a detailed article about the British Counterfeiting Operations, the full article is available here:  https://www.britnumsoc.org/publications/Digital BNJ/pdfs/1958_BNJ_29_18.pdf

  6. It's now the end of March, one of the wackiest months in my life and probably yours and perhaps in history of the modern world.  Plagues have been with us since the beginning and I suppose this isn't gonna be the last one unless we all go down with it.  But, not here to discuss our future, but the present.  Seems as though everything except the graders have gone home, and I bet their number of coins and paper money has dropped quite a bit as only electronic trading is happening. All the venues I go to are shut down for the foreseeable future, and my website hasn't had a hit in 2 weeks.  I thought maybe with folks stuck inside, perhaps more would be looking at the site, www.exonumiaandmore.com but no such luck.  

    I'm working with a company who puts up sites, so I cannot edit it until they finish with their legal beagles and so on and so forth.  So,I thought I'd talk about what I am doing to keep me off the streets looking for paper money blowing in the wind.

    A while back, I bought a stash of uncertified notes, mostly $2 modern FRN's  If you care to go to my site, you can see a few, and also I put a few on eBay and will add more when Tomorrow comes.  I put so many up, I ran out of free postings, so I have to wait til tomorrow. See captbrian2.  Is it illegal here to putup my locations of info. Hope not.

    Anyway, these $2's are of many sorts.  Fancy serial #'s, error notes, and so on. One of them, I especially like (the blue book shows it at $700+-, and it is with 3 other notes.  What happens is, the third printing, (the serial # & seal) are submitting to gravity, then fighting it.  The 1st note is where it should be (the serial #) then the 2nd note has it dropping down a bit. and the 4th, it begins to defy gravity and starts self correcting back up to where it belongs.  I have never seen a set like this, and I have talked with others who have seen similar, but it is quite rare from what I can get from the paper money community.  Anyway, I will try to post the pictures. 

    I always have incredible trouble posting pictures on these journals, but I'll give 'er a spin.

    No luck with picture. I'm gonna publish this then try to add in pictures.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry. People were complaining about the shirt shamming artists as a legitimate career choice. Old Navy apologized for the T-shirts and pulled them from its stores and issued a statement that it did not try to offend anyone on purpose. In my opinion the Old Navy did not offend anybody. The T-shirt merely reflected the current affairs of the art and the place of an artist in our contemporary times. I call the current situation "Hyperinflation of Arts".

    Hyperinflation in economy often occurs when there is a large increase in the money supply not supported by the product growth, resulting in an imbalance in the supply and demand for the money. Left unchecked this causes currency to lose its value. Rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society.

    "Hyperinflation of Arts" started with Conceptual Art movement in the mid-1960. The movement completely rejected standard ideas and aesthetics of art. Many works of conceptual art, often called installations could be created by anyone. In the article "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" Sol LeWill explains: "In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art."

    In music around the same time, the avant-garde movement developed. That movement in music challenged and critiqued existing aesthetic conventions, rejected existing status quo, and introduce new and unique elements to provoke or annoy the audience. Music, however, recovered from the influence of avant-garde movement, and moved on. Maybe because you can reject existing status quo all you want, but at the end of the day, you won't be able to play any music without music elements such as rhythm, harmony, dynamics, etc., or music theory. Yes, you will be able to go on stage and cut the piano in half to shock and annoy your audience, and you can declare that it was a music performance. Next time however, your audience is not going to show up to see it again, because it was interesting once (maybe).

    Music moved on, and avant-garde movement is just a movement in music history, however art never recovered from the conceptual art. Art is still under strong influence even now in the twenty first-century. We are still suffering from the belief that idea suffices as a work of art, and that concerns such as aesthetics, expression, skills are nothing, but the limitation to the boundaries of art. The boundaries were pushed very hard and are still being pushed. Institution such as museums and art galleries, and educational institutions are still forcing conceptual art as a main stream art, and any other styles of art suffered devaluation.

    The idea that you don't need any skills, or education, or talent, or anything else to become an artist was pretty much accepted. This notion opened the door for anybody who wanted to enter the art scene and declare themselves the artists. I personally witnessed ridiculous situation when someone without any degree was teaching in a major university. The university hired someone without any degree to teach the students who were actually pursuing the art degrees.

    I'm sure everybody is familiar with a tale by Hans Christian Andersen "The Emperor's New Clothes", about tailors who promise an emperor a new clothes that is invisible to those who are unqualified for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor paraded before his subjects in his "new clothes", no one dared to say that they don't see any clothes and the emperor is parading naked, until a child cried out, "But he is naked!"

    I cannot help but think of the Andersen's tale when I think about the art affairs in our contemporary times. The mainstream institutions still strongly insist that "Emperor" is wearing expensive and sophisticated clothes and those who are unable to see, are unqualified stupid and incompetent. I personally see that "Emperor" is naked, Old Navy sees it, so does everybody else. Conceptual art like avant-garde music was shocking, and appeared fresh in sixties, seventies, eighties... , but in our contemporary time it cannot pass as fresh, but quite opposite. It stinks...

    Because there are no boundaries to entry, the art scene is flooded with endless number of people who aspire to be the artists, but don't want to spend a lot of effort, time or money to produce the quality artwork. The product they produce is the product of no skill, and represents rejection of standard ideas and aesthetics of art by the conceptual art movement. Such products presents very little value, therefore the value of art has been deluded, and in return the place of an artist in the modern society slowly disappears. Like in economy, rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society. Rapid devaluation of contemporary art is devastating for art, and painful for the society.

  16. Never felt so happy to get a 15

    Happily Surprised

    Sending notes in to be graded can be a real shoot.

    Sometimes lucky 7 comes up and sometimes you out.

    This time I was Happily Surprised, I was expecting this rare

    mule to come back a 10 or 12 net. It was like Christmas when

    I saw the 15 and no ugly comments. PMG has graded

    over 1 Million notes now, with a total of (2) 1935 Mules from the M-A block.

    My 1935 set is now 100% complete.
