Malaysia 1981 $1 Low Serial Numbers 000008

***To some or should I say, to many, a main criterion to banknotes collecting is that these notes should bear prosperous numbers.

To these folks, the note featured today should be desirable to you and to all the Oriental folks in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia and wherever they may be as you sure would like the number '8' for this number will sure bring you & your entire family tree tons to prosperity, I suppose.

And I should suppose, with '8', whatever you touch will turn gold, whether it's psychological or real or should I say, surreal.

This banknote is already almost 30 years old, which, of course, means it's even older than my dog, but it's still in incredible pristine condition, should I say, in exceptional paper quality condition. No signs of unavoidable ageing, with glistening sheen & unchallenged crispness.

I am very cocksure that I will get a PMG UNC 68 grading if I were to send this banknote to PMG for their professional grading.

I wonder how the previous owner of this note (who has implored me to keep him anonymous as he doesn't need the limelight or the nuisance phone calls from enquirers) managed to maintain the status quo of this note conditionwise. It looks as if it justcame out of the bank yesterday.

It's definitely not chemically cleaned, as one would expect if one were to buy online from sellers from you know where, who by now should be imortalised in the world's book of records as the world champions of banknotes washing & pressing.

Ya, you can go ahead & name who these mother-fuckers are, but sorry, no prizes for guessing right.

But by all means, you can go ahead & exercise your immortal right to spit at these scums, I will not stand in your way & stop you for how can I stop you from exercising your birth given right to spit long & far at these scums?

That's a good one.

Would be even better if it were to be G/77 0000007, as G is the 7th alphabet!
