This year has seen a couple of milestones in my collection, the first dealing with coins and the second banknotes. After more than a decade, I finally managed to complete my NGC Registry Set consisting of the main types of Napoleonic Francs and, much to my surprise, I have also managed to complete my first PMG set, this was much quicker but then it was 5 notes rather than 30 coins!xD

The Set consists of the 5 to 100 pesos notes issued by the Banco de Tamaulipas in Mexico from 1902 to 1914 with all denominations represented by remainders* as these were available in high grades to allow appreciation of the design. My collection also has a 1000 pesos specimen note although it still lacks an example of the 500 pesos note and then there are the notes from earlier and later periods issued in the State, all with fascinating designs and history. You have to start somewhere and Tamaulipas appears to have been it as very few of my Banco Sets corresponding to the other Mexican States (pre and post revolution) have even been started and those, which are actually underway in my collection typically, comprise a single note. Then there is the rest of Central and South America so I have no idea where completed PMG Set No. 2 will come from.hm

 

* Collecting issued notes by Series, signatories and dates appears to be possible and would make an impressive reference collection but would probably drive me mad. If anyone is considering this, look at the information on ‘papermoneyofmexico.com’ first and then change your mind!:whatthe:

Congratulations on the set CCUK! Those are some fantastic looking notes and the information contained within the set is much appreciated. :golfclap:

Your set has motivated me to try and complete one set this year, meaning adding a worthwhile set description and information on the individual notes, and I'm totally stealing the idea of including images in the description as well. lol 

It's so nice to have some short sets like the Banco de Tamaulipas for people to collect, this is something that is severely lacking for the Ukrainian registry. It's much harder to wrap up a 100+ note set at the last minute. lol

HTML has been trial and error but at least it is a start. xD Something like  'The 12th Denticle's'  1 Peso Coins of The Philippines NGC Set Description being a goal.

A lot of the PMG sets are very long indeed compared to the NGC coin sets, I am sure many of these can be broken down into smaller sets by printer/name of currency/groups of years if there are big gaps for issued notes etc. Some sets already have these smaller sets in addition to the 100+ 1900-date options! This should be possible for Ukraine?, you may just have to ask PMG nicely :roflmao:
