Been a little while since I posted. The winter has been kind of slow for acquiring banknotes, I picked up a few good pickups and lost out on quite a few others. Czech notes are still pretty hot and most of the ones that I lost out on I had solid bid that I thought would be enough, but alas.

  I actually just got a submission packed up to send off to PMG. I haven't submitted notes in a little over a year so I have 16 notes that I am looking forward to getting back. All Czechoslovakia notes, most of them are early notes that you just don't see come up for sale graded often, and when they do they are usually buy it now for way too much.

The most exciting pickup that I had last month was the Czechoslovakia P 1a, it is part of the first series of notes that were just Austro-Hungarian notes with provisional stamps attached. This one is in pretty good condition all things considering, it has a small fold at the top left corner and a couple corners show some dings or rounding, but it doesn't have any folds in the center. I'm guessing that it would be about a 55 when graded.

A pickup that doesnt fit into any of my current sets was this Croatia 5000 Kuna from 1943. I really liked the design and the traditional dress.

This 50 korun P 85a came out of nowhere and I ended up picking it up pretty quickly from the seller.

The last main pickup that I had was this 100 korun P 86a. I'm slowly filling out the socialist republic notes in my set. Most of those have been through sellers, as more of them are available and graded. I think the notes of the Socialist Republic era of the 50's and 60's are cool, the communist influences are very strong throughout. While I personally think the early notes of 1919-1920 are some of my favorites these are great as well.

Until next time.

@VE CoinsAll Czechoslovakia notes, most of them are early notes that you just don't see come up for sale graded often, and when they do they are usually buy it now for way too much.

Same here, just not for Czechoslovakia! lol

I like the 50 Korun note and the Croatian one - a specific person?

Sounds like the definitive reference set needs putting together for the whole region :bigsmile:

I've definitely had it cross my mind before to do a definitive reference set for the Czech lands, going all the way from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Czechoslovakia, Bohemia and Moravia up to the modern Czech Koruna and Slovakian Euro notes. It would be my impossible set for sure and the complete set would be close to 300 notes by my rough calculations.:tonofbricks:
