1917-1920 Straits Settlements Emergency Issue - 10 Cents

These are the 1917-1920 Straits Settlements Emergency Issue - 10 Cents notes which are also affectionately known as "cardboard" by collectors. It is a green and black coloured note which was printed on white card board, thus the nickname.

The date is the emobossed seal in red at the back, with figures representing the date of issue. The day is at left, month at right and year at the bottom. Issued dates are from 1st October 1917 all the way to 10th June 1920.

It is supposedly in the size of 118mm x 76mm but many different varieties have been seen, and I have even seen them printed on larger pieces of cardboard than that.

There are 2 signatories to this note, namely the Treasurer (A.M. Poutney) and Acting Treasure (H. Marriot), with the latter being the rarer variety.

  4. In this fashion my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's story begins in this SHOCKING and controversial VIDEO.

    Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    THESE are the same methods lots of famous people (notably those who "became famous out of nothing") and the greatest business people used to become rich and famous.

    You've heard that you use less than 10% of your brain.

    That's because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe that conversation has even occurred IN YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about 7 years back, while driving a non-registered, trash bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and with $3.20 on his banking card.

    "I'm so fed up with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally succeed?"

    You've taken part in those questions, isn't it so?

    Your success story is waiting to be written. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
