Malaysia 2012 $10 Serial Numbers 10 Million
***Another piece of banknote belonging to His Respected Lordship, Sir Raymond Chang, who bought this banknote from a gentleman who in turn bought it from another gentleman who in turn bought it from another gentleman from the now very bustling & popular flea market which, of course, is none other than the one and only one and none other than the "SP Pasar Lambak", whereby many big numismatic dealers congregrate without fail each weekend, selling many interesting and hard-to-get Malaysian numismatic stuff.
Don't let the distance frighten you from getting to this "SP Pasar Lambak" as you can get there easily & very cheaply via Airasia.
But sadly, the featured banknote obviously had been used previously by its previous owners and only God knows how many owners there were.
At most, this banknote can be graded as Good Fine but some folks might grade it rather as Fine++++++ or even About Very Fine.
Of course, About Very Fine sounds better as it has crept up to the VF level and any uptick gradewise is always better for sellers, not just here but everywhere else in the world.
And of course, let's now forget that some sellers would rather not grade the banknotes that they are selling as gradingwise, they might be illiterate and as such, you have to grade the banknotes that you want to buy yourselves because such sellers do not want to misslead(sic) the buyers......
And grapevine has it that this banknote is for sale and not surprising as everyone knows that everything that Sir Raymond Chang has under the sun are for sale, it's just the freaking price that separates the buying and selling but knowing Sir Raymond, his prices are one of the most lowest, if not the lowest in the Malaysian world of numismatics.
As such, the crown as the Market Leader in Malaysian numismatics is deservingly his & his alone.
Perhaps, the time has come to crown Our Respected Lordship the much coveted Pakar Numis Malaysia title when the Malaysian Numismatic Society next meets in December to confer this highly sought after numismatic title that everyone would like to grab hold of.....
