It's square!

1 1


All my banknotes are basically rectangular in format, although they do vary dramtically in size and orientation so it was great to add this 1 Peso note from La Provincia de Buenos Ayres to the collection as it is square! This also adds another bank to the Impossible Set which helps.:bigsmile:


As a Napoleonic collector I realise that some of the early French Revolution issues are also square but I don't have any :(

Like coins there are probably examples of banknotes in every shape too - not sure how practical some would be though :roflmao:

I can only think of one note that is square or not a rectangle in my collection.



It did not start out life this shape, as it would have had 8 coupons attached to it (4 per side) measuring roughly 150mm T x 295mm W, but as the coupons were removed it was reduced to a lowly square. Totally L7 man. xD

@Fenntucky Mike I would class that note as 'square' ! Great detail and an essay to read whilst you consider spending it. xD

There seem to be a few others about, odd ones from various countries but most square ones I have seen appear to be mainly early French and Dutch issues. I think the kids would just confuse them with post-it-notes.
