Recently, I've been burning up some spare funds I acquired through sales of some duplicates in my coin collections. I've been busy using some of these newly rediscovered monies to focus on gathering up several Ukrainian banknotes for my sets. I have been hitting the banknotes really hard the last two weeks due to several factors eluded to in a previous journal entry (over $1,800 an ounce on 7/8/2020). It just so happened that several notes popped up for sale that were either perfect matches for empty slots or upgrades in my sets. Funny how when you have some extra "mad" money you find the perfect thing to spend it on fairly quickly, hmmmm. Needless to say I bid on all of the notes and won most of them (not a lot of competition for Ukrainian notes). At the time I saw the notes and even more so now, I can't help but have a feeling of being spied on. That the seller looked at my registry set, looked in his inventory and sent some notes in for grading, Bing. Bang. Boom. Notes for me and a profit for them. Good for them if that's the case, that just seems like good business and paying attention to your market if true. I noticed today when looking at the population report for Ukrainian banknotes that the total graded increased by 15 which might as well be a hundred when talking Ukrainian banknotes. Another bulk submission from this seller? I guess I'll find out, let's go for broke.
The latest banknotes to roll in this week, more on the way.
Man, I need to get going on some descriptions for these notes!
