  1. With three different production sites, dwindling supplies, war on several fronts and a desperate need for banknotes to circulate among the public, compromises were made and as a result several varieties of 1,000 Krabovantsiv banknotes exist. Below we will touch on what I consider major varieties. 

    KYIV

    With Kyiv being the first and most stable location, the notes printed there were of good quality and consistency. As a result, there are no major varieties that can be directly link to the printing offices at this time. The Kyiv notes are currently Pick # 35a in the SCWPM, GI (Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, General Issues 16th Edition) although not noted as Kyiv notes in SCWPM these notes best fit the description "Watermark: Wavy lines.". All notes were produced on the same paper with identical watermark and inks used, there were four series of notes printed at this location and, if collecting by prefix, will provide four minor varieties to acquire. The four prefixes are AA, AB, АБ & АГ all in red ink, along with the serial number. The Kyiv notes are normally found with excellent color, the dark reds and greens really coming through. I also typically see two different sizes of type used for the prefix and seral numbers, small and large, but I don't currently have enough data to speak on this as of yet in regards to determining varieties.  Specimens were produced and were two uniface pieces, front and back, with ЗРАЗОК (SAMPLE) printed diagonally across the unprinted side in black ink with the prefix and serial number in red ink, PP888899 (Pick 35as1 and 2). There is also a two-sided specimen with ЗРАЗОК printed diagonally on both sides in red ink, with the prefix and serial number in black ink, PP000000. Both are extremely rare with the two-sided specimen exceptionally so.

    Kamianets-Podilsky

    The next print location for the 1,000 Karbovantsiv banknote was Kamianets-Podilsky where we encounter two major varieties. As previously mentioned, in my prior Journal entry, a lack of supplies led to at least a paper change but also some other interesting varieties. The Kamianets-Podilsky notes are where we see watermark and ink variations. While it cannot be said if it was a lack of supplies, time, or talent that led to the varieties produced at this location, most likely it was a combination of all three, the times in which they were produced absolutely played a part. The first variety was a change to the ink used for the back of the first two series of notes printed. While the paper used in Kyiv was used to produce the first two series of notes in Kamianets-Podilsky, prefix AH & AO (wavy line watermark), the ink used/mixed was violet in tone as opposed to the previously used brown toned ink. This color change was previously noted in the SCWPM but was not assigned a separate Pick #, as of the latest printing this color variance is no longer mentioned.

    Prefixes used for the violet back, note the type size difference between the two series as noted on other series and within series.

    The next variety is the linked star watermark which, as previously mentioned in Part 1, was facilitated by a lack of supplies. Notes printed with prefix AA, AB, АБ & АГ, (the same prefixes were used on the Kyiv notes) in Kamianets-Podilsky were the only 1,000 Karbovantsiv notes to be produced on this paper. These notes were previously Pick # 40b (kind of) in the SCWPM, although none of the linked star watermark notes have violet backs. Pick 40 has since been removed from the SCWPM and combined with Pick # 35, there are no current varieties assigned for the linked star watermark or the violet back notes. At least not in the 16th addition (2016).

    WARSAW

    The third and final print location for the 1,000 Karbovantsiv banknote produced one Major variety and several small ones. Most 1,000 Karbovantsiv notes printed in Warsaw display the letter "W" to denote the location of printing, two series were produced in this way, AE & AI, on paper containing no watermark but with zig-zag lines of varnish applied to the paper. The varnish can be present on the front, back or both and runs diagonally either left or right depending on the paper's orientation during application of the varnish. The varnish lines appear to sit on top of the lithography to my eye, and if correct would have been applied after printing. Prefix AE and AI were only used on Warsaw notes with "W" on the front.

    Below image, prefix for Warsaw notes with varnish, note the varnish present on prefix AI which runs vertically through the "A" and the "2", diagonally between the 0 and 6 and diagonally between the 4 and 8. Also note the lack, or no, varnish on prefix AE. Prefix are located on the front of the note only, as they were on all series issued.

    496970890_PrefixW.png.e2af917db51860b6c74a32f2d3aeb453.png

    There was also a third series of note printed in Warsaw on paper with no watermark and wavy lines of varnish present on the back. Prefix АЖ was used for these notes, with an estimated run of 1,000 notes. 

    UNKNOWN

    The final major variety is another ink variation, black ink was used for the prefix and serial number. All notes are from series АГ, printed on paper with wavy line watermark. The print location is unknown as both Kyiv and Kamianets-Podilsky, at one time, had printed notes using this prefix and had produced notes using the wavy line watermark paper. Although Kamianets-Podilsky printed АГ series notes they were on linked star paper but notes of other prefix were printed on wavy line paper at the same location, meaning that, there was an opportunity for these to have been printed at Kamianets-Podilsky. These are rare and either facility could have produced a limited run of notes with black ink, although it is thought that Kamianets-Padilsky is the more likely printing location due to the lack of supplies and poor production quality. One other possibility it that these were printed using captured lithography stones, but there is a lack of documentation to support that. Note, the example below has unbalanced prefix with the left prefix type being much larger than the right, the serial numbers are of the same size. The embossed emblem is also extremely faint on this note.

    2125134945_BlackInk.thumb.png.25d78a0e43fa4d5105eeb818ea02329e.png

    As it stands, there are six major varieties worthy of a Pick number, in my opinion. The Kyiv notes (P #35a). The Kamianets-Podilsky notes, violet back (P #UNL), and linked stars watermark (P #UNL). The Warsaw "W" notes with zig-zag varnish (P # 35b), and wavy lines of varnish (P #UNL). And the black ink prefix notes (P #UNL). It would have been nice if the Pick #'s for these could have been assigned in order of printing/location, but that ship has probably sailed at this point. With that said, hopefully we'll be seeing P #35c for the violet back notes, P #35d for the linked star watermark notes, P # 35d for the wavy lines of varnish note, and P #35e for the black ink prefix and serial number notes in the future. There is a P # 35c listed in the PMG population report, although I do not know what that variety is as there is no 35c listed in the last edition of the SCWPM or on Numismaster. :frustrated:While I do have at least one each of all the major varieties in my collection, all notes pictured are from my collection except for the specimen which is currently up for auction at Stack's Bowers (worship), I am missing one prefix and a couple of the linked star watermark notes (by prefix).

    If you're looking to collect all varieties by prefix, lookout, you're looking at 21 notes, but if I can get some more examples of the large and small type used on prefix and serial numbers and include the direction of the varnish this list could double.

  2. So, where does "Harare" come from?

    My wife got me back on this question recently. I'd been looking for it a little before but could never find it. Looking for this led me to other answers too, as I said in my last post, but I've finally found AN answer. Maybe it's THE answer, or part of it.

    From what little I've been able to find in things like the Encyclopedia Britannica, there was a Shona chieftain in the late 19th Century called Neharawa. An area was named "Harawa" after him and then that got "corrupted" / changed to "Harare," which became the name for a predominantly black residential area that is now called "Mbare."

    I say "corrupted" in quotes because that was the wording used by a source I found on the evolution of "Harare." But clearly the population attaches no stigma or taint to the newer form, or the capitol wouldn't have been named that - they would have used the original "Harawa" in that event, I would think. As it is, I'm not sure why they didn't if what I've found is correct. Unless the intent was to use the name of that residential area and not necessarily to honor this chieftain. But there is an agreeable symmetry in renaming it from the name of the British PM at the time of conquest to a name honoring a Shona chieftain of the same era.

  3. You won't find stars on National bank notes to signify a replacement.  This set has a few large and a few small examples.  It's all about paged serial numbers and detecting them from normal production numbering.  See if you can see what makes these notes replacements

     

  4. With the President in the White House, its look like we will see the new redesign Twenty Dollars bill with in this year or next year, with "Harriet Tubman" on the bill in 2022 or 2024 series, only after the new Treasurer of the United State and a new Secretary  of the Treasury are name and approved by House and Senate. We will see the new "Harriet Tubman" bill that will be printed; I hope they can be printed at both the Washington D.C. and at the Fort Worth TX location. This will be the first time a person of color will be on any U S currency in the history of the United States. This bill first design was the 1928 series with Tate-Mellon and the next was in 1996 series with the Withrow-Rubin "Big Head" notes series was last printed in that format.

    Starting in 2004 the new redesign notes with Marin-Snow series was the first printed in that format, and rand from 2004 thru 2021. This will be the fourth redesign for the Twenty Dollar notes. This is one of the most used notes of all the currently in circulation today. The Harriet Tubman bill will be an open face design, the same way as the series of 2004 current bill that are in circulation. This will be a newest note in the series of Twenty Dollars notes, within this collation.

  5. Counterfeiting of paper money in North America dates back to the very first emissions.  The only Massachusetts 1690 bills that survive today are raised bills; genuine bills on which the denomination was altered, or raised, to a higher denomination.  Counterfeits were a problem in all of the 13 colonies from the beginning.  Free money was the motivation for the counterfeiters was, for the first 85 years.  That all changed in 1775 when the British placed counterfeit May 10, 1775 $30 Continental bills into circulation.   

    These very rare counterfeit bills represent the first tactical use of counterfeits.  The objective of the British was to undermine confidence in the paper money of the Continental Congress.  The first bills were not very convincing and were probably viewed as more of an irritation than a real threat.  The bills were printed from a relatively crudely engraved plate and are easily spotted.   As the American revolution progressed the British counterfeiting operations improved, and the counterfeit bills became a real threat to the colonial economy.  The rampant counterfeiting of the May 20, 1777 and the April 11, 1778 emissions forced the early recall of the bills, and significantly undermined confidence in the currency.  The British not only printed counterfeit bills, they encouraged the use of counterfeits by sympathizers and even issued propaganda heralding the quality and number of the counterfeits in circulation.

    The pictured bill is an example of the first shot fired by the British in the economic battlefield of the American Revolution.  These are very rare counterfeits with less than 10 examples known today.  They are easily identified becuase they were printed from engraved plates, rather than typeset.  This example has evidence of mounting and paper pulls on the face, but is collectable none the less.  

    Eric Newman wrote a detailed article about the British Counterfeiting Operations, the full article is available here:  https://www.britnumsoc.org/publications/Digital BNJ/pdfs/1958_BNJ_29_18.pdf

  6. It's now the end of March, one of the wackiest months in my life and probably yours and perhaps in history of the modern world.  Plagues have been with us since the beginning and I suppose this isn't gonna be the last one unless we all go down with it.  But, not here to discuss our future, but the present.  Seems as though everything except the graders have gone home, and I bet their number of coins and paper money has dropped quite a bit as only electronic trading is happening. All the venues I go to are shut down for the foreseeable future, and my website hasn't had a hit in 2 weeks.  I thought maybe with folks stuck inside, perhaps more would be looking at the site, www.exonumiaandmore.com but no such luck.  

    I'm working with a company who puts up sites, so I cannot edit it until they finish with their legal beagles and so on and so forth.  So,I thought I'd talk about what I am doing to keep me off the streets looking for paper money blowing in the wind.

    A while back, I bought a stash of uncertified notes, mostly $2 modern FRN's  If you care to go to my site, you can see a few, and also I put a few on eBay and will add more when Tomorrow comes.  I put so many up, I ran out of free postings, so I have to wait til tomorrow. See captbrian2.  Is it illegal here to putup my locations of info. Hope not.

    Anyway, these $2's are of many sorts.  Fancy serial #'s, error notes, and so on. One of them, I especially like (the blue book shows it at $700+-, and it is with 3 other notes.  What happens is, the third printing, (the serial # & seal) are submitting to gravity, then fighting it.  The 1st note is where it should be (the serial #) then the 2nd note has it dropping down a bit. and the 4th, it begins to defy gravity and starts self correcting back up to where it belongs.  I have never seen a set like this, and I have talked with others who have seen similar, but it is quite rare from what I can get from the paper money community.  Anyway, I will try to post the pictures. 

    I always have incredible trouble posting pictures on these journals, but I'll give 'er a spin.

    No luck with picture. I'm gonna publish this then try to add in pictures.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry.

    Old Navy created the T-shirts "Young Aspiring Artist", but with the word "artist" crossed out, and substituted with other words such as "astronaut" and "president". The T-shirts triggered controversy and social media outcry. People were complaining about the shirt shamming artists as a legitimate career choice. Old Navy apologized for the T-shirts and pulled them from its stores and issued a statement that it did not try to offend anyone on purpose. In my opinion the Old Navy did not offend anybody. The T-shirt merely reflected the current affairs of the art and the place of an artist in our contemporary times. I call the current situation "Hyperinflation of Arts".

    Hyperinflation in economy often occurs when there is a large increase in the money supply not supported by the product growth, resulting in an imbalance in the supply and demand for the money. Left unchecked this causes currency to lose its value. Rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society.

    "Hyperinflation of Arts" started with Conceptual Art movement in the mid-1960. The movement completely rejected standard ideas and aesthetics of art. Many works of conceptual art, often called installations could be created by anyone. In the article "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art" Sol LeWill explains: "In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art."

    In music around the same time, the avant-garde movement developed. That movement in music challenged and critiqued existing aesthetic conventions, rejected existing status quo, and introduce new and unique elements to provoke or annoy the audience. Music, however, recovered from the influence of avant-garde movement, and moved on. Maybe because you can reject existing status quo all you want, but at the end of the day, you won't be able to play any music without music elements such as rhythm, harmony, dynamics, etc., or music theory. Yes, you will be able to go on stage and cut the piano in half to shock and annoy your audience, and you can declare that it was a music performance. Next time however, your audience is not going to show up to see it again, because it was interesting once (maybe).

    Music moved on, and avant-garde movement is just a movement in music history, however art never recovered from the conceptual art. Art is still under strong influence even now in the twenty first-century. We are still suffering from the belief that idea suffices as a work of art, and that concerns such as aesthetics, expression, skills are nothing, but the limitation to the boundaries of art. The boundaries were pushed very hard and are still being pushed. Institution such as museums and art galleries, and educational institutions are still forcing conceptual art as a main stream art, and any other styles of art suffered devaluation.

    The idea that you don't need any skills, or education, or talent, or anything else to become an artist was pretty much accepted. This notion opened the door for anybody who wanted to enter the art scene and declare themselves the artists. I personally witnessed ridiculous situation when someone without any degree was teaching in a major university. The university hired someone without any degree to teach the students who were actually pursuing the art degrees.

    I'm sure everybody is familiar with a tale by Hans Christian Andersen "The Emperor's New Clothes", about tailors who promise an emperor a new clothes that is invisible to those who are unqualified for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor paraded before his subjects in his "new clothes", no one dared to say that they don't see any clothes and the emperor is parading naked, until a child cried out, "But he is naked!"

    I cannot help but think of the Andersen's tale when I think about the art affairs in our contemporary times. The mainstream institutions still strongly insist that "Emperor" is wearing expensive and sophisticated clothes and those who are unable to see, are unqualified stupid and incompetent. I personally see that "Emperor" is naked, Old Navy sees it, so does everybody else. Conceptual art like avant-garde music was shocking, and appeared fresh in sixties, seventies, eighties... , but in our contemporary time it cannot pass as fresh, but quite opposite. It stinks...

    Because there are no boundaries to entry, the art scene is flooded with endless number of people who aspire to be the artists, but don't want to spend a lot of effort, time or money to produce the quality artwork. The product they produce is the product of no skill, and represents rejection of standard ideas and aesthetics of art by the conceptual art movement. Such products presents very little value, therefore the value of art has been deluded, and in return the place of an artist in the modern society slowly disappears. Like in economy, rapid devaluation of the currency, and with it, hyperinflation, is devastating for the economy and it is very painful for the society. Rapid devaluation of contemporary art is devastating for art, and painful for the society.
