British Armed Forces Special Voucher

I chanced upon this unique note when I was notes shopping one day. I am unsure of the origins of the note, and know only as much as what is printed on the note. It was relatively cheap and I thought it was an interesting buy.

Singapore Ship Series 1 Dollar Replacement Notes

As mentioned earlier in my other blogposts, there are some prefixes that are sought after by collectors, namely the A/1 or Z series prefixes. A/1 is the first prefix, while Z prefixes are the replacement prefixes. They are called replacement prefixes notes as they are notes printed to substitute notes which are damaged in the printing process. Since the damage rate of notes during printing is low, the supply of these replacement notes is also low, thus making replacement notes rare.

In this post are Ship Series 1 dollar replacement notes of prefixes Z/1 and Z/2.

China 4th Series RMB Set

Recently I had travelled to Shanghai, China to visit a friend of mine and toured the place and some nearby states. It is amazing how China has developed over the past few years. The Expo was not too bad but its a little too crowded. The streets are much cleaner and people friendlier than the last time I was there. The cross state trains were clean and comfortable which were impressive!

I chanced upon a set of the 4th Series RMB on sale in a state called Wen Zhou and bought it. I'm no expert on China Banknotes, and hope I didn't get scammed, haha.
