As I am now adding banknotes to my collection my first Journal entry over here at PMG detailed a 1915 Mexican 'dos caritas' 10 pesos from Chihuahua .

During a recent clear-out I came across some things from ~40 years ago which was when the interest in all things numismatic started. Among the British colonial coins (all common and low grade :|) I was surprised to find I had kept a reproduction of a Mexican Revolution 10 pesos banknote from Chihuahua.

I guess that means I have been interested in the period for longer than I thought. A bit scary how things work out but I suppose that means I am on the right track and now I just need an example of the real thing!xD

I saw the Jersey and Guernsey notes over at CT, anything else turn up? :whistle:

There also seem to be some agriculture/horticulture medals but these will need a bit of research - some even look like they could be silver :)
