With many note issues, this con- version privilege was limited and ultimately negated by the imposition of redemption cutoff dates Such conditions made collecting of bank notes a risky business, particularly with notes possessing face value of more than @ nominal sum, This is why in most instances, except where issues were withdrawn shortly after release or became virtually worthless due to hyper-inflation, early high devomination notes are extremely difficult to locate, espe: cially in uneinculated or high grades of preservation. ‘The development of widespread collector interest in paper money of most nations was long inhibited by a near total absence of adequate documentary literature, No more than tree decades ago collectors could refer only 10 a few cata logs and dealer price lists of limited scope, most of which ‘were incomplete and difficult to acquire, or they could build their own knowledge through personal collecting. pursuits, and contact with fellow collectors. “This situation was corrected somewhat over the past 25 years with a number of new special catalogs covering the more popularly collected countries. Still, many. a remained uncatalogued, and no single volume existed which provided comprehensive, detailed, illustrated listings of issues from all countries of the world, ‘The earlier catalogs authored by Albert Pick chronicling issues of Europe and the Americas were assembled as step- ping stones to the ultimate objective which became reality with publication of the first Standard Catalog of World Paper Money in 1975, That work provided collectors with complete listings and up-to-date valuations of all recorded goveriment note issues of the 20th century, incorporating Pick’s previously unpublished manuscripts on Africa, Asia and Oceania, plus many earlier issues. This completely revised and updated seventh edition pre- Sents a substantial extension of the cataloging. effort initiated in 1975 and revised in succeeding editions, As the most com: Prchensive world paper money reference ever assembled, it fully documents the many and varied legal tender paper cur- Tency issues circulated by nearly 300 past and current gov- femmenis of the world from the fate 1700s to the early 1990s, Falling within the scope of this General Issues volume are all legal tender issues cireulated under the auspices of recog- nized national governments and their banking agents, includ~ ing notes which enjoyed wide circulation in their respective countries. Exceptions are the multitudinous notes of the Ger- man states and cities, especially those of the World War I and postwar period 10 1923, and the vast category of Chinese limited-circulation issues of other focal issues and simil countries. GENERAL ISSUES Coverage In Volume 2 and 3 Legal tender notes issued by recognized national governments, and which enjoyed wide circulation in their respective countries, are covered in Yol- ume 2 and 3. General Issues, Volume 2 covers the ‘era from the late 1700's to 1960, Volume 3 covers all notes issued since 1961. Users of this current Volume 1 interested im acquiring the General Issues, Volume 2, and 3 are invited to contact the publisher. Inquiries should be directed to Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, Krause Publications, Book Division, 700 E, State St, Tola, WI 54990, ‘Changes encompassed in this seventh edition center on the ‘addition of a great many new issues, especially from those countries formerly a part of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. ‘Thus, places such as Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegov- ina, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Slovenia. Ukraine, the three reconstituted Baltic states and new issues from Croatia are all shown here, As this book was being sent to press, even more such new issues were making their ‘appearances. Another greatly improved feature of this edition is the inclusion of much more signature and date listings, a result of the strong growth of interest in this kind of data, Many dates and signatures are known to be scarcer or rarer than others, and the catalog now reflects a large percentage of that information. Significam revision has taken place Uroughout the book as usual, and each country has been brought as much up to date as available information allowed. Changes of monetary systems, new higher values because of inflation, and new types worldwide are all included here. 4 INTERNATIONAL NUMERALS TIONAL NUMERAL SYS EMS i295 87.

(Sta acini sulk ineralagrepubtec nua sg) 2 Mtoe Annual ofthe Sate oF tee AMSAT ee cpt DATING Determining a note’s date of issue is a basic consideration of attribution. As the reading of dates is subject not only to the vagaries of numeric styling, but to variations in dating roots caused by the observation of differing religious eras or regal periods from country to country, and in some instances even within @ given country, making this determination can sometimes be quite difficult. Most countries outside the North Africa and Oriental spheres rely on Western numerals and Christian era (AD) reckoning, although in a few instances note dating has been tied to the year of a reign or government. Countries of the Arabic sphere generally date their issues to the Mohammedan era (AH) which commenced on July 16, 622 AD, when the prophet Mohammed fled from Mecea to Medina. As their calendar is reckoned by the lunar year of 354 days, which is about three percent (precisely 3.03 per- cent) shorter than the Christian year, a formula is required to convert the dating to its Western equivalent. To convert an AH date to the approximate AD date, subtract three percent of the AH date (round to the closest whole number) from the AH date, then add 621. The Mohammedan lendar is not always based on the lunar year (AH), however, causing some confusion, particu- larly in Afghan \d Tran (Persia) where a calendar based on the solar year (SH) was introduced around 1920. These dates can be converted to AD by simply adding 621. In 1976 the goverment of Iran implemented a new solar calendar based on the founding of the Iranian monarchy in 559 BC. ‘The first year observed on the new calendar was 2535 (MS), which commenced on March 20, 1976. {aperueinaro Kasnaveneraa men 1 Oxmudpa 1920 rda_ exon Barnrsero Haine Russia - 1 October 1920 Koren ~ 4288 (1959) Greece = 5 Mareh 1048 Exypt= 1907 December 2 DATING 13 Several different eras of reckoning, including Christian and Mohammes (AH), have been used to date paper money of the Indian subcontinent. The two basic systems are the Vikrama Samvat era (VS), which dates from October 18, 58 BC, and the Sa-ka era (SE), the origin of which is re ‘oned from March 3, 78 AD. Dating according to both eras appears on the notes of the various native states and countries of the area. ‘Thailand (Siam) has observed three different eras of dat- ing. The most predominant is the Buddhist era (BE) which originated in $43 BC, Next is the Bangkok or Ratanakosind- sok era (RS) dating from 1781 AD (dates consist of only three numerals), followed by the Chula-Sakarat era (CS) which dates from 638 AD, with the lauer also observed in Burma. Other calendars include that of the Ethiopian era (EE) which commenced 7 years, 8 months after AD dating, and that of the Jewish people which commenced on October 7, 3761 BC. Korea claims a legendary dating from 2333 BC which is acknowledged on some issues of paper money. ‘The following table indicates the year dating for the vari- ous eras which correspond to 1990 by Christian calendar reckoning, but it must be remembered that there are overlaps between the eras in some instances: Christian era (AD) — 1990 Mohammedan era (AH) — AHI411) Solar year (SH) — SH1369 Monarchic Solarera (MS) — MS2549 SE2047 ka 1912. 3 Vikrama Samvat era (VS) — Saka era (SE) — Buddhist era (BE) — 3 Bangkok era (RS) — RS209 Chula-Sakarat era (CS) — C$1352 Ethiopian era (EE) — EE1982 Jewish era. — 5750 Korean era 4323 Paper: money/of Oriental.origin = principally Japan; Korea} China, Turkestan and Tibet - is generally dated to the year of the government, dynastic, regnal or cyclical eras, with the dates indicated in Oriental characters which usually read from right to left, In recent years, however, some dating has been according to the Christian calendar, and in Wester numerals. More detailed guides to the application of the less preva- Tent dating systems than those described, and others of strictly local nature, along with the numeral designations employed, are presented in conjunction with the appropriate listings. Some notes carry dating according to both the locally observed and Christian eras. This is particularly true in the Arabic sphere, where the Mohammedan date may be indi- cated in Arabic numerals and the Christian date in Western numerals, or both dates may be represented in either Arabic or Western numerals, In general the date actually carried on a given paper aD issue is indicated, Notes issued by special Law or Decree will have L or D preceding the date, Dating listed which does not actually appear on a given note is xenerally bracketed by Parentheses. Undated issues are indicated by the presence of the letters ND along with the year of issue in parentheses, if it is known. ‘Timing differentials between the 354 day Mohammedan and 365 day Christian years cause situations whereby paper money bearing dates for both eras exist bearing two year dates from one calendar in combination with a single date from the other. 14 HOw TO USE This volume contains various regional, state and bank issues covering a wide variety of note types and encompoassing 4 period of issue from about 1700 to the present. A number of list- ings have beca regrouped according 10 newly available informa- tion, and many new headings have been inserted. All this is (0 make the catalog as easy to use as possible for everyone. CATALOG LISTINGS Listings proceed generally according t0 the following sequence: Catalog number — the basic reference number at the begin- ning of each listing for each note. For this Specialized Issues volume all listings are uniformly preceded by the prefix S. This prefix immediately identifies them as issues to be found in this particular volume. No prefix letter S is used for any listings in Volume 2. Denomination — the value shown on the note. its nominal or face value, Date — the actual issue date shown on the note. Where more than one date appears only the latest is used. Where the note has no date, the designation “ND” is used, When issue date is known even though the note has no date, the listing will show “ND fol: lowed by a date in parentheses. Dates are always given in day- month-year order. Color — included for all notes where known. The face color is given first, and if the back is different that comes later, after description of the face design Description — main design elements of the face side are described briefly immediately following color. The same is true for the back when information is known. Uniface notes are so designated. At times certain design elements consistent for a given series are shown just before the listing itself, Printer — often a local printer has the name shown in full. Abbreviations are used only for larger or more prolific printers. See the list of printers* abbreviations on page 20. In the listings the word imprint refers to the logo of the printer's name usually appearing at the bottom margin. Valuations — for most notes in this volume, values are given in three grades: Good, Fine and Extremely Fine. Listings which do not follow this pattem are clearly indicated.

Portraits are identified whenever possible. DATES AND DATE LISTING POLICY Date listings in this catalog were never intended to represeat “complete” date information, only to shown some exampie, shortly after the first edition appeared a market aba data crept in. Simply stated, it said that any date “oot in * was obviously rare and worth a great deal more than ary listed date. The inflated price tag proved the point. This is juz not true. We must all realize that paper money research is stil in its relative infancy, and that a great many dates for a great mxy notes have never been set down in any order. Moreover, even if they were, how could anyone know for certain at this time which of these really rare and which are the more easily available? It will take many years, if ever, before such information is aval- able? It will 1 Vy ever, before such information is available, and even then its accuracy must be questioned. On te other hand, dates known to be scarce or rare are so indicated = this catalog. In order to avoid any further difficulties, the following de policy is now effect for catalog listings: in general, any note with up to three separate dates will have all of them shown in the fs- ing. Any note with more than three will have an inclusive 6 span, Examples: S300 s pesos ‘2ates. 412 170 97387 This shows all known dates f¢ being listed (a2 suum three differen) ee Dane Se wr zaneerszin The date span shows the earliest known date as 2.10188 and the latest 15.12.1873.

Much in the way of paper money cataloging js still in the pioneer stage, and only within the past few years has information in varius areas been forth coming Which allows for almost deifnitive cataloging, Before that, no one could write any listing of notes and hope that it was anywhere near complete. Unfortunately, catlog numbers became very important as reference points very quickly, and everyone tags a number on a note and hopes it will never again have to be changed. That is the ideal to strive for, but it will probably take another generation of information and cataloging before num- bers may reasonably be expected to remain constant. There is no other choice; as newer and better data is revealed, it is the duty of the cataloger to incorporate the necessary outline features to improve the accuracy of listings in volumes such as this, To do less would be an injustice to the hobby and all who care to improve it. VALUATIONS For Volume 1 most notes have grades: Good, Fine and Extremely the listings and heading: Valutations are determined generally from a concensus of individuals submitting prices for evaluation and averaging. Some notes have NO prices; this does not necessarily mean they are rare, but it does show that no pricing information was avail- able, Many notes have a “Rare” designation, with no values. Such notes are generally not to be found on the market, and when they do appear their price is a matter between buyer and seller, No book can provide guidance in these instances except to indicate rarity. in a few instances values are given in itali This occurs when outside influences have made the collector market for the affected issue so unstable that any yalue shown is considered to be speculative. All valuations are based on American standards and interests, and are stated in U.S. dollars. They serve only as aids in evaluat- ing paper money since actual market conditions are constantly changing. Also, particularly choice examples of many iss listed in this book may bring higher premiums than those shown. alutations given in three ceptions are noted in DENOMINATIONS ‘The denominations as indicated on many notes issued by a string of countries stretching from the castern Orient, through Western Asia and on across northern Africa often appear only in unfamiliar non-Western numeral styles. Within’ the listings Which follow, however, denominations are always indicated in Western numerals. A comprehensive chart keying Western numerals to their non-Western counterparts is included elsewhere in this introduc- tion as an aid to the identification of note types. This compil tion features not only the basic numeral systems such as Arabic, Japanese and Indian, but also the more restricted systems such as HOW TO USE 15 Burmese, Ethiopian, Siamese, Tibetan, Hebrew, Mongolian and Korean, plus other localized variations which have been applied to some paper money issu In consulting the numeral systems chart to determine the denomination of a note, one should remember that the actual numeral styles employed in any given area, or at a ceriain time, may vary significantly from these basic representations. Su variations can be deceptive to the untrained eye, just as. vari tions from standard Western numeral styles can prove deceptive individuals not acquainted with the particular style employed. ABBREVIATION: Certain abbreviations haye been adopted for words occuring frequently in note descriptions. Following is a list of these: FY — face value 4 — number (catalog or serial) ND — no date sign, — signature or signatures wh — with wl — without wmk. — watermark vp. — overprint unpt. — underprint (background printing) — dark — light — muhticolored — left r= Tight ctr, © — center portr, — portrait bldg. — building Kg, — king Qn, — queen HOUSING AND CARING FOR THE COLLECTION ‘The proper housing of a collection should be one of the first considerations of a beginning collector. Even the advanced col- lector needs to consider it from time to time. Only a person who notes in a manner giving pleasure to himself and others will keep alive the pleasure of collecting in the long run, ies to the way of housing as to the choce of the collecting specialty: it is chiefly a question of what most pleases the individual collector, Sorting and proper arrangement of the ntes is most certainly a basic requirement. Storing the notes in envelopes and filing boxes should perhaps be considered only when building a new section of a collection, for accomodating Varieties or for reasons of saving space when the collection begins to grow. ‘The grouping of notes on cardboard sheets and fixing them into position with photo comers is a mode of housing practiced for many years. The collector can arrange the notes {© his own taste, letler and otherwise embellish them. Difficulties will arise in the accommodation of supplements and the exchanging of notes when acquiring pieces in better condition, since even slight differences in the formation will necessitate detaching and reaffixing the photo comers. 16 HOW To USE Most bank note collections are probably housed in some form of plastic-pocketed album which sre today manufactured in many different sizes and styles to accommodate many types of world paper money. Because the number of bank note collectors has grown con- tinvally during the past few years, some specialty manufacturers of postage stamp and coin albums have also developed new albums for paper money. The notes, housed in clear plastic pockets, individually or several in a pocket, can be viewed and exchanged without difficulty. These binders are not cheap, but the notes displayed in this manner should make the most lasting impression on the viewer. A large collection will hardly be accommodated in its entirety in this manner, thus many collec- tors limit themselves to partial areas or especially valuable notes which are displayed thus. CAUTION: certain types of plastic and all vinyl used for housing notes may cause brittleness in time and cause oiliness from fluids transferred from the vinyl to the notes. The high demands which stamp collectors make in general on the quality of thei objects cannot be transferred to paper money. A postage stamp is intended for use only once and is then embodied in a collection. or it may be purchased new as a mint specimen without the slightest trace of use. In paper money, it is difficult or impossible to acquire uncirculated specimens from a number of countries. Acquiring the circulating notes of such places in high grades is also not 2 simple matter. The collector must often content himself with notes showing more or less pro- nounced traces of use from circulation. The fact that there is a classification and value difference between the notes with greater use or even damage is a matter of course. it is part of the opinion and personal taste of the individ ual collector to decide what he will consider worthy of collect- ing and what he will embody in his collection. For the purposes of strengthening and backing tom paper money, under no circumstances should one use plain cellophane tape or a similar material. These tapes warp easily, with sealing marks forming at the edges, and the tape frequently discolors, Only with the greatest of difficulty (and often not at all) can these tape be removed, and the damage to the note or the print- ing is almost unavoidable, The best material for backing tears is the 3M Magic transparent tape, a self-adhesive tape especially recommended for the treatment and repair of documents, There are collectors who, with grcat skill, remove unsightly spots, repair badly damaged notes, replace missing pieces and otherwise restore or clean a note. before venturing to take such ‘work, one should first experiment with cheap duplicates and not ‘endanger a collection piece by a daring aticmpt. Really difficult work of this nature should be left to the experienced restorer, provided the value of the note is a sensible ratio to the expendi- ture involved. On the same subject, there has recently arisen a school of thought which questions the wisdom and, indeed, the very morality of tampering with a piece of paper moncy to restore or improve its condition. Such a question must, in the final analysis, be left to the individual collector. IBNS GRADING STANDARDS FOR WORLD PAPER MONEY The following Introduction and Grading Guide is the res vwork prepared under the guidance of the grading comminee the International Bank Note Society. It has been adopted as i, official grading standards of the IBNS. Introduction Grading is the most controversial component of paper money collecting today. Small differences in grade can mean significant differences in value. The process of grading is so subjective and dependent on external influences such as lighting, that even g very experienced individual may well grade the same note dif. ferently on separate occasions. To facilitate communication between sellers and buyers, itis essential that grading terms and their meanings be as standard. ized and as widely used as possible. This standardization should reflect common usage as much as practicable, One difficulty with grading is that even the actual grades themselves are net used everyplace and by everyone. For example, in Europe the grade “About Unciruclated” (AU) is not in general use, yet in North America it is widespread. The European term “Good VF" may roughly correspond to what individuals in North Americe would call “EF”. The grades and definitions as set forth below cannot reconcile all the various systems and grading terminology variants Rather, the attempt is made here to try and diminish the coatro- versy with some common-sense grades and definitions that sim to give more precise meaning to the grading language of paper money. How To Look at a Bank Note In order to ascertain the grade of a note, it is essential 10 examine it out of a holder and under a good light. Mave the ncte around so that the light bounces off at different angles. Try bold: ing it up obliquely so that the note is almost even with your eyes as you look up at the light. Hard-to-see folds or slight creases will show up under such examinations. Some individuals lightly feel along the surface of the note to detect creasing- Cleaning, Washing, Pressing of Bank Notes a.) Cleaning, washing or pressing paper money is genes) harmful and reduces both the grade-ard the value of 2 0%. At the very least, a washed or pressed. note may lose its sheen and its surface may become lifeless and dull.

Some countries have made specimen notes available forsale to go lectors. These inelude Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Slovakia ats World War Il and a special set of four denominations of Jamaica bearing red matched star serial numbers. Also, in 1978, the Franti Mint made available to collectors specimen notes from 15 nations, bas ing matching serial numbers and a Maltese cross device used 25» pe fix. Several other countries have also participated in making species notes available to collectors at times. Aside from these collectors issues, specimen notes may sometime, command higher prices than regular issue notes of the same type, ere, though there are far fewer collectors of specimens, In some cases, nots. bly older issues in high denominations, specimens may be the only form of such notes available to collectors today. Specimen notes art ne legal tender or redeemable, thus have no real “face valuc which also indicated on some examples. ‘The most unusual forms of specimens were produced by Waterlon and Sons. They printed special off colored notes for salesman's sample books adding the word SPECIMEN and their seal. These salesman's samples are not included in catalog listings. In most cases they are est valuable than true color specimens but may command a premium in more popularly collected countries. Some examples of how the word "SPECIMEN" is represented in other languages or on notes of other countries follow: AMOSTRA: Brazil CAMPIONE: Italy CONTOH: Malaysia EKSEMPLAAR: South Africa ESPECIME: Portugal and Colonics ESPECIMEN: Various Spanish-speaking nations GIAY MAU: Vietna MODEL: Albania MUSTER: Austria, MUESTRA: Various Spanish-speaking nations NUMUNEDIR GECMEZ; Turkey ORNERTIR GECMEZ: Turkey or OBPA3EIL'B: Bulgaria, Russia, USSR.
