PMG Registry Featured Set: Cuban Notes Issued 1949-1995

Posted on 1/19/2021

This month’s featured set belongs to SBE.

First, we would like to extend a huge thank-you to all of the participants in the 2020 PMG Registry Awards competition, and congratulations to our winners! Our judges faced quite a challenge to choose between so many outstanding collections. What an unusual yet amazingly active year we had with the PMG Registry in 2020. We look forward to an even better year with you in 2021.

We begin 2021 by featuring an extensive and historical Banco Nacional De Cuba, 1949-1995 Issue, Issued Notes set found here. With over 10,400 notes in the PMG Census, Cuba has been steadily growing in popularity in the PMG Registry. With over 18 different set types to choose from thus far, the Cuban category offers a diverse range of set types for all collectors, big and small.

Collectors seem to appreciate the variety sets most and the challenge of finding high-quality notes for every issue. SBE began this set just this past summer of 2020 with several Top Pop notes. He has worked with determination since then and just recently hit 100% completion this December. This set covers all varieties of issued notes for almost 50 years, so completion with high-quality notes is no easy task. He and another collector are neck-and-neck as they compete for first place with over 11,000-12,000 points each!
