  1. Thanks! I actually just realized this note has the day and month of my birthday. That’s cool. Probably a keeper for me now that I saw this.

  2. Congratulations on your big win! All that hard work on Zimbabwe paid off. You are definitely the hyper inflation dude. I am really glad they honored you as us forum dwellers know how much blood, sweat and tears you put into the hobby. One hundred trillion salutes to you. Well done!

  3. Read a little blurb about Zim last week in Coin World, speaking to the state of things there. https://www.coinworld.com/news/paper-money/zimbabwe-embraces-u-s-dollar-as-currency-shortage-continues Side note, I'm really loving that Coin World now has a Paper Money section. I think they added it at the start of 2020 and it seems to be expanding.

  4. Ya know, if my prattling-on encouraged someone to dump a couple of G's in the span of 2 months just for the joy and pleasure of hammering me into the dirt on rankings, I'll take that compliment. I don't talk about this part much but, part of my motivation in building "Gradually, Then Suddenly" was that I really liked this series and found the history interesting but when I brought them up a couple of times on the NGC side a few people kinda dumped on them and dismissed them as "just big numbers," etc (A quote that was in my description for a while there at least, it torqued me off so ba

  5. Oh yeah! It's a less desirable, less valuable note that earns about 5% of the points of the other if the label is correct but PMG made a mistake! Let's pile on and act like some data-entry person at PMG hitting a instead of b makes this very common note somehow more valuable. Never mind that the note is worth about $20-25 on a good day usually. I guess there's a chance that there are slab / holder collectors out there that would like it but I have no interest personally. A true 48a, with an AA prefix I might add. A type B, from the same AW prefix run that the error label note co

  6. Good morning, The "s" refers to the specimen version of this note. If you have any other questions, please let us know. Thank you!

  7. It's my understanding that any notes graded 65 and up must qualify for EPQ designation. My assumption is that because your note is either silver coated or a silver foil that PMG does not assign the EPQ designation because either the paper is covered and can not be inspected or if it's a foil it's not paper so it wouldn't qualify. As far as any statistics it's my experience that PMG does not place notes with unlisted Pick #'s in its population reports. You may want to post these questions in the Ask PMG section of the forum.

  12. Yeah, start a Journal and/or post here. I always like reading about new things, especially in the world arena. SPAM?

  13. Why don't you blog about something that interests you? I occasionally write in my journal here pretty much exclusively about national bank notes. We have Zimbabwe very well covered with Revenant and Ukraine with Fentucky Mike. What do you collect??

  14. Between October 1934 and September 1935, both 1928B and 1934 $10 LGS notes were in production. All serial numbers for series 1934 restarted at either 00000001A or 00000001* In 2009, a well respected and known small size collector located star note serial number ranges, but sadly to this day, only annual serial number data exists for 1934 non star notes. Here is a list of approximate cutoffs from LGS to DGS for 1934 $10 FRN's. This is based on annual serial number data and observations. A24500000A, B82250000A, C17000000A, D18750000A, E14500000A, F10000000A, G48

  15. The seal color changes from 1928 to 1934 have always been a source of consternation among collectors, here is a thread to clear some of that up. Around mid August to very early September 1932, the transition from LGS to DGS was completed. Initially, the first LGS were quite dark and didn't really lighten up until around the Spring of 1934 to the classic yellow green. Below is a list of the first LGS serial numbers for 1928B and 1928C $10's everything after that was LGS. 1928B A36432001A to A43056000A and A00516001* to A00588000* B59544001A to B73944000A and B00684001*

  16. Hello again I have been away for the past five or six years, and am back again. I am an avid collector and researcher of LGS notes and would be gladly willing to help on the forum with seal color attributions (I have all of the print dates). In the meantime, post some small size stars and look for educational threads in the near future.

  17. Hi, I would like to request to add a slot for Pick # 891 PMG Certificate: 7024262-032, to "People's Bank of China, Commemorative Issue", a note to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of modern China. Among the existing 4 slots in the above Competitive set. This particular issue is of significant to all the Chinese Notes collectors, it's a very popular and highly sought after note. Wishing you all a happy & healthy New Year, Cheers ! CS136612

  18. I'll get to that eventually... My 1 Billion and 10 Billion notes are on a short list of high priority / high likelihood upgrades but I'm just finding myself in no rush in general with Zimbabwe right now. I'm actually doing some things with my wife that have me getting much more into my other love at the moment - photography.
