[Identifiaction] Missing Banknote in the World Catalog

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,


I have a Banknote from Portugal that I think is not in the World Catalogue.


This banknote has the red seal of DON PEDRO IV, so reporting to the catalog, between Pick 19A to Pick 31.

In this range, the only 10.000 Reis is the n°28 but the design is different.


I think this note is a missing variety for DON PEDRO IV.

We can find the same note as the n° 41 but it's with the seal of MIGUEL I,...this is why it may not have been spoted before.


I would be very interested to have your opinion on it. And if it is the case, what is the best way to have this note added to the catalog ?


Thank you very much

Hi Jlarronde,


Thanks for you answer. I do have the #28 in my collection.

It is 10.000 Reis but the design is not the same.

The #28 use the design of the original #5 (Winged Cherub....)


But here I have the same note but with the design of #13a (6 vignettes in oval frame)...


This is why I think this is a missing variety for PEDRO IV


On the other side, on the MIGUEL I notes, they have both varieties :

# 40 with design #5

# 41 with design #13

In the old edition of the catalogue I have there is a email to send images in case of non registred notes, but it seems it doesn't work anymore.


Do you know what is the best way to contact them ?

Is there is a new contact information ?

I would like to send it with other that I have from the Portuguese Kingdom.

I think I will add a comment to be sure it is not registred as a wrong pick.


What if the reference is missing, how will the note be descrive?


Just for reference, here is one i'm pride of, having a grade 40 is very hard for this type of note:

NET is for : Splits

All this notes have amazing engraving.
