  1. Finally, here's that sample. Sorry it took so long.

  2. Thanks for posting more pictures. I did a little searching and I haven't found any comps yet but based on the pictures I would put the condition somewhere between "About Uncirculated" and "Very Fine" which is not very good for a modern note. That being said the main thing this note has going for it is the serial number, it is not a solid serial number but does have a good run of 6's on it, but if they are on a common banknote in average to below average condition they probably won't pull a premium. I'm going to stick by my first assessment and say it's worth slightly more than face value.

  3. "It was a dark and stormy night" Not really but it was pretty crappy out so I decided it was a good time to sort through the pile of cr*p (why does crappy show in the Journal but not cr*p, need to work on their censoring) on my desk. In doing so I realized it was a pile of supplemental material that I had saved, news articles, pictures, notes I made, etc. Towards the bottom of the pile was a group of "banknotes" (?), oh yeah, I remember these. It was a set of commemorative "fantasy" banknotes that I picked up online about a year ago to go with my Ukrainian banknote set. It's a set of seven no

  4. No. I've never tried anything like that. There was a time when a guy in front of me paid for two beers with 28 mercury dimes. I bought them off the very confused clerk with 3 $1 bills.

  5. Just 4 off from a radar. I'd bid it up to about $10 if it were at auction. Nice they gave it a grade.

  6. I was pretty sure but it was a little harder to tell on the Philippine note. So glad they were able to improve the holder and get rid of the tint. I do remember PMG launching the "Gen 4" earlier this year but it seems like it was more of a label and sticker (hologram) change than anything. I'm not sure if the holder is Gen 4 or if the label is, or both? https://www.pmgnotes.com/news/article/8221/new-pmg-label-and-holder/ The Gen 3 was launched in late March of 2016 https://www.pmgnotes.com/news/article/5201/PMG-Launches-New-Clearer-Holder/ The Gen 2 was launched back on Jan

  7. They both seem to have the lower transmittance that is the hallmark (IMO) of the old gen, green tint holders... Not sample holders, but the following two images were made at basically the same time using the same imaging method (cheap scanner) and the old gen holder image is just so much darker.

  9. I can't make journals right now and I'm getting errors when I try to update my note descriptions, but I'm working on a major re-work / update to my New ZWD set to factor in current events (and make note of the Sep 2019 death of Mugabe). I have the following written up in my master Word file and i thought I'd share: The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe announced in mid-May 2020 that new $10 and $20 bank notes would be released at the end of May and the first week of June, respectively. A Boeing 747 arrived in Harare from Leipzig Germany on the morning of May 14th 2020 and unloaded 66 ton

  10. I was hoping to knock out a couple journal entries this weekend. I can get to the journals but its a pain in the rear. I'll just save them on my computer then copy and past when the problem is fixed, I should probably be doing that anyway.

  11. Dig it out! Dig it out! No image available on Verify PMG Certification, well done. Trivia contest or the like could be fun around here, guess the grade, real or fake, etc. Just for bragging rights and the education.

  12. I won a sample note from PMG back when they ran a trivia contest for members (yes, those were the good 'ole days). It was a Malaysia, Bank Negara Pick #51 1 Ringgit ND (2012) PMG Unc Sample PMG Collectors Society Trivia Contest SN AG6140428 PMG 1528092-028 Sign. Z.A. Aziz, - Polymer Note I don't have a pic to post (Sorry), but it's at least one generation removed from the current PMG holder. It is the only sample holder in my collection. If there's a massive groundswell of demand (i.e. 5 likes on this post ought to represent a groundswell around here), I'll dig it out and post a pic.
