Inside this posting we will talk about a 1911 Chinese Empire 10 cents silver coin. We have taken pictures of this uncommon coin which can been seen in the pictures at the bottom of this posting. The front or obverse side has the Chinese characters for Hsung-tung (known as Puyi in English) who was the last emperor of China. He resigned as emperor in the year 1912 but later served under the Japanese (from 1934 to 1945) and was put by them in control of Manchukuo (Manchuria). This coin is made from silver and has a weight of 2.7 grams. On the back or reverse is an artistic image of a dragon.

Here we have a Greece 1939 banknote that has a denomination of 500 Drachmai. On the front side has a portrait on the left Greek woman garbed in traditional costume wear. On the right hand side of the obverse is a watermark of a woman’s head facing left. The back of this old currency bill has a pictureque scene of a city on a waterway with sailboats sailing. On the top right of the back is a woman’s head like the one in the watermark.
Take a look at our Greek 500 Drachmas banknote from 1939 in the photos underneath. This note has seen very little circulation and would be at the very least a high extra fine grade if not almost uncirculated.

In this post we will discuss an Indonesia Sepuluh Rebu (10000) Rupiah banknote from the year 1985. On its front side is an image of heroine (female hero) Raden Ayu Kartini who was an important figure and advocate for women’s rights in Indonesia. She argued that the culture in Java (at the time) did not allow women to develop intellectually as they were often secluded and forced into arranged marriages at young ages. She wrote about these and other issues. After she died a foundation in her name was set up by a Dutch family who built several schools in her name. Later on President Sukarno established a national holiday in her name. Also on the front of this banknote is a picture of Candi Prambanan Temple. The back side of this paper money has an image of a female receiving her diploma.
Take a look at the pictures of our 1985 Sepuluh Rebu Rupiah banknote below. Its appears to be in extremely fine condition with minimal wear and no pin holes or stains.

This coin has the 34th President of the United States of America on its obverse facing left (designed by Frank Gasparro). On the reverse is the Liberty Bell with the moon behind it (the back was designed by Dennis R. Williams after winning a competition to do so). This dollar coin is 40% silver and has 9.836 grams of the precious metal in its content. This is part of a 3 coinset in which approximately 3.99 million were struck.

Here we have a silver 1923 British half crown which can be viewed in the pictures at the bottom of the post. There were quite a few of these struck back in the year 1923, approximately 26.3 million. On its front side is the picture of the King George V of the British Empire facing left. The back of this coins is adorned with a shield with the United Kingdom arms with a crown on top. The domination and year are also the back. This coin has .2273 ounces (6.4435 grams) of the precious metal silver in its composition.
Our British half crown has seen considerable use and might grade very good.

In this posting we will explore a German 1000 Marks banknote from February 1923 that was later overprinted on as 500000 Marks in July 1923. This shows how dire the hyperinflation situation was in Germany at the time as the authorities there were trying to inflate themselves out of the war debt from WWI. In the end the currency failed and was replaced by the Rentenmark in 1924. In any case our overprinted banknote appears to have been a city issue as the top of the obverse says Stadt Trier or the city of Trier in English. The old 1000 denomination is crossed out and there is overprint saying: Gültig Für 500000 M Fünfhunderdhausend Mark (which in English would translate as valid for 500000 Marks). This bill is predominately in brown print with various patterns.
See our 1000 Marks banknote overprinted with 500000 M below. It has minimal wear, is crisp and has with a couple very slights fold in one corner. It would likely grade as a lower extra fine or higher very fine.

Here we are going to talk about a really nice 1966 Canada silver 1 dollar coin. On its obverse is a design featuring Queen Elizabeth II with royal tiara. The back has a scene of travelers inside of a voyageur canoe with the date below and the denomination below that. This coin is 80% silver and has .6 ounce of the precious metal in it. This was the 2nd to the last year that these were made for circulation.
Take a look at our 1966 Canadian silver dollar in the photos underneath. Its condition is at least almost uncirculated and it still has very nice mint luster.

In this posting we will have a look at a 1929 US National Currency 5 dollar banknote. This was one of the last years that these were made and this one in particular came from The National City Bank of New York. Upon examination of the top of the front of the bill one will notice that it was backed by US bonds deposited in the Treasury. Also notice that the seal to the right of President Lincoln is a reddish brown color. This National Currency Banknote note bears a design similar to the US Notes of the time with Lincoln on the front and his memorial on the bank. This wasn’t true of earlier versions which featured President Benjamin Harrison.
Have a gander at our 1929 five Dollar National Currency banknote in the photos below. An examination of its condition reveals a very fine grade.

In this posting we are goinng to examine a really nice looking 1935 Greek 100 Drachmai banknote (catalog # Greece P-105). See this work of art in the pictures at the bottom. On the front is a take on the Mythological god Hermes. Known for his wit and cunning he was the god of transitions, travelers, messenger of the gods etc. He is pictured on this currency note with winged cap and serpent wrapped staff. The back of this bill has a woman carrying what appears to be a basket of fruit. The colors used on this banknote note are light and pleasing to the eye and I find it to be one of my favorite among the notes we have.
See images of our 1935 Greece 100 Drachmas banknote following. Its grade is very fine with light vertical folds and some folding on the corners as well.
