Malaysia 2013 $1 ZA 0000033 PMG 66 EPQ

***Another Bo Derek-like perfect 10 banknote and perfect it should be as it's made of polymer or if you want, plastic, and as such should deserved to be graded as PMG 70 EPQ.
But, all it could get is PMG 66 EPQ. There is nothing imperfect with this banknote as all of its 4 corners are as sharp as hell & the note is as flat as the globe, but, why then, only a 66?
Maybe the many "Sifus" out there could be a source of enlightenment....

Malaysia $1 ZB Replacement 100 Pieces Uncirculated

***A stack of 100 Running Pieces of the new RM1 ZB Replacement and of course, it came from none other than the Fort Knox-like Monetary Vault of our respected numismatic market leader, Sir Raymond Chang (O.B.E.).
It's amazing that the numismatic market is filled with a deluge of various alphabetical replacements, from ZA, ZB, ZC & Z don't know what.
Why so many Zs? Why so many banknotes have been misprinted that they needed to be replaced?
And of course, there is nothing to gloat about with these ZB Replacements as below the surface, there is a supply and in due course, the market will be flooded.
Have you folks forgotten about the 'rare' RM1 ZD Replacement 'incident?!'

Malaysia 2013 $1 Polymer 9999901 Uncirculated

***A stack of 100 pieces of the new RM1 polymer note & which should have the all important & pivotal notes bearing the Serial NOs of 9999999 & 10000000, but sadly, these 2 very much desired banknotes are missing & in their places are 2 lousy pieces of ZB Replacements.
Of course, these RM1 ZB should be useless in the final analysis because the ZBs could and should come out in stacks or bricks but the Solid 9s & 10 Millions will never come out in stacks and you sure don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to know that.
And of course, given a choice to choose, it's better to choose Solid 9s and 10 Millions instead of the freaking ZB Replacement.

Malaysia 2013 $1 Polymer 8888801 Uncirculated

***A Stack of the new RM1 polymer note & supposedly freshly out from the print and of course, since it's polymer, it's meant to last forever, as "Polymer Is Forever," the newly coined numismatic slogan.
And sadly, this note just bears the almost solid serial numbers of 8888801 and the all important pivotal number found therein is missing.
In its place, there was a note that bears the Prefix of ZD...Maybe, this is an error/misprinted note.
Perhaps, the many sifus out there, old & newly crowned ones, could share some light on this...

Malaysia 1981 $1 Prefix L/70

***A piece of banknote issued 30 solid years ago and a piece that's of nothing to shout about as it is not in very good condition, as it's in About Fine Condition or to make it simpler, it's almost Fine condition, almost there but not yet in Fine Condition, but of course, sellers have their own set of rules when it comes to grading and this note could be graded by them as About EF, EF or even in UNC Condition.
Also nothing special with its serial numbers nor its prefix because it if has a Prefix of 'AA', at least we know that it's the First Prefix and as such, would carry multiple premiums for having had the First Prefix, but with a Prefix way, way down the lengthy line, who freaking cares actually as there are more things in life to keep one amused.

Malaysia 2013 $1 ZC Replacements

***From the newly reinforced 20-foot monetary vault of Sir Raymond Chang, here are the latest Replacements in the form of none other than the ZCs.
Of course, everyone is looking for those with 5 or even 6 zeroes but waste your time not folks as they are firmly in the grasp of our respected numismatic market leader and he is none other than, of course, Sir Raymond Chang.
By the way, they are for sale, so, please don't hesitate to ask, okay?
Anyway, according to the usual very reliable underground grapevine, the RM1 ZD is also out but just not sighted yet and as such, this ZD could be the rare one, the one that everyone would want to have a chunk of.
According to one particular 'Sifu,' it would be out during this Hari Raya, so, do stand-by at the ATM machines or maybe, get the money-changers to help you.....
