Things I have to do before my baby steps can begin

Iowa Silver Baron Bammer


This past week all I've been doing is trying to figure out what to sell. I have some, that I wish I never would have purchased. 1 is a Peru note, it graded nicely but doesn't turn me on anymore. To be honest, it's a nice looking note, but I like nice vignettes showing buildings and historical scenes. Once I get the set started, if anyone is interested in the Peru, Dominican Republic and Czechoslovakia notes, let me know. The Peru isn't a Specimen. I also have a lot of raw notes that aren't worth grading, but I do like them. Especially the Mexican, Argentina etc. and a couple of other South American notes. I have enough to do for the next week or so, and I'll try to keep everyone updated thru my journals.

One thing I have to do is update my World Catalogs. Hint, Hint: if anyone has maybe a 3 year old set of all 3 catalogs, I'd be interested if the low price is right. Here is why: in one of the lots I bought there was several Mexican notes I didn't have, but there was also some Russian notes included that consisted of 2 different designs; one I believe is an 1898 variety and the other, a bigger vertical note is a 1909 date. One of my problems is my eyes aren't near as good as they once were, so even with a loupe or madnifyer I cannot see any differences in the notes. Some of the differences are different names for the signatures, and I can't tell them apart. I'd sure like to get the CORRECT pick numbers for each

Ok, here's where I try to put in the scans, would you all keep your fingers crossed!!!



I think I had better stop here, as I know if I try anything else, will really be pushing my luck.

Thank you all for reading and helping out.

I think your scans turned out great, the Russian 1 ruble note that says 1898 on it would have been printed between 1912- 1917 as it is the P#1d with Shipov signature, I'm unsure who's signature is the second though sorry. The other vertical note is P#11c with Shipovs name again but I don't know the other name. 
Hopefully this is somewhat helpful and maybe someone else will chime in as well.
I mainly collect Czechoslovakia banknotes but I have others as well.

I look forward to seeing more posts from you in the future.

Thank you both. I figured once I got looking at them they would be in General WC and I have the Specialized with me. But it's nice to learn, so I guess that's a plus for me. Oh, by the way VE, I'll probably have the Czech note photos in my Specimen signature set tonight if you would like to take a look at it.

Again, thanks both of you for the help and comments. An extra note for your viewing pleasure.

I must apologize to you first, I'm very sorry it took me this long to get back to you. I guess the best way to talk and work out a deal would be either a PM here or via our private emails. My email is bamyank@iowatelecom.net. Let me know how you want to proceed. Thank you. Again I'm sorry it took so long. Brian
