Winter Update

How’s everyone been lately, hopefully the holidays have been treating you well and the weather hasn’t been too bad. It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, although I had problems accessing the chat boards during December. I figured I would post an update. The last couple months have been slower months for my banknote collection, mostly just acquired a few odds and ends. The Latvia note fits into my collection as I would like to work on expanding my Latvia set since I collect Latvia coins as well. The Somaliland note was just a fun purchase, I watched a video about the country and went searching and thought it looked cool.

I’ve been contemplating sending in a submission of mostly Czechoslovakia banknotes, and I’m thinking I might send it in sometime in the next couple months, I currently have an NGC submission of Moderns being graded so probaly sometime after those come back. I currently have about 15 or so notes that I have been acquiring over the past year that would fit into my sent and fill it out nicely. Most of the notes that I have to submit are ones that I don’t really see for sale graded or if they are available, they are asking way more than I’d like to pay. Maybe when I get my submission ready, I’ll highlight some of the notes I’m excited to send off.

Happy Holidays @VE Coins:banana:

Nice Newps! Seems like we're kind of in the same place with our note collections. Its slowed down quite a bit for me as well, seems like there are fewer available notes on the marketplace and at auctions, part of that is I'm getting close to finishing up a few sets, but it seems like ther are fewer notes in general. 

I also picked up a few random notes for my signature set and am thinking of sending in a submission in the next month or two. 

I'd post about some of this stuff more but I haven't been able to access the chat boards for weeks now except from phone. Everytime I get on them with my desktop computer the screens are all messed up, NGC no problem, PMG not usable. :pullhair: Hopefully I can figure out what's going on but it seems like it might be something on PMG's end. Posting Journal entries and uploading images of notes from my phone is just not something I care to try and struggle through. 

Good luck in 2023! (thumbsu

Yeah I'll agree with you, it seems like there has been less available. Recently this note popped up, and while I'm not trying to get it I think it is a really nice note. Some of the notes from around that time period are so colorful and detailed.

I am actually having the opposite problem, the chat boards work just fin for me at my desktop computer but if I try and access them on my phone it loads wrong and is all jumbled. NGC works just fine on both for me as well.

Great notes, Czech and other Eastern European notes seem to becoming very popular at the monment - a big growth area??. As there seems to be a shortage of ungraded notes, it is probably worth submitting some to PMG as graded versions are sought after and will only become more so.

I plan on sending some Latin American notes when I can figure out the best way to post them from the UK :bigsmile:

One of my favorite notes, and it's friggin huge! You can usually find those raw, in really good condition, even UNC, for under $50, plenty of survivors.

Wow that's crazy, I know notes have been going for more money but did this go for more than you thought it would or more than it should have?

I'll be honest and say that I put down a bid of $350 which I thought was stupid money, so this note went for a few hundred dollars above what I thought the top market price would be. WRONG! doh!

There are three 66 EPQ notes graded by PMG and one 67! I'd hate to see what that note would go for! :tonofbricks:
