This set type is the most popular of all Qatar PMG Registry sets with 21 participants, and Empty Quarter currently sits in first place. At 100% completion, check out the fully loaded gallery and also the detailed comments for all 39 notes. What is unique about this set are the personal anecdotes that Empty Quarter shares. “The first note I got in my collection was at age 8, when I received an uncirculated [note] as part of my allowance.”

Empty Quarter grew up with his passion for collecting and continues to do so. His career has brought him to many places around the world, and these notes have personal significance to him: “My favorite notes are Qatar P-12 and P-19…which show an offshore jack-up similar to what I worked on in Saudi…”

Thank you, Empty Quarter, for sharing not only your lovely collection, but also your personal stories. We appreciate you and look forward to seeing what updates happen with this set and your many others!
