Polymer 5 Ringgit Solid Number 1111111 PMG 66 Malaysia

Just another ordinary plastic banknote, only thing is that it's has been professionally & independently graded with a score of 66 & that's what makes it ordinary cos 66 is no cause to gloat-about as it's a norm these days to get grades of PMG 69 & PMG 70 & that too for papermoney & normally, plastic notes are usually 100% perfect, with extremely sharp corners & should be without doubt perfect candidates for perfect PMG 70 score, but, alas, this note, a plastic note, only managed to score a score of a mediocre PMG 66 & with such a lowly score, it's nothing but a black sheep in one's collection.

And to add more insult to an already aggravated injury, the Serial Number is not that of the highly coveted & ultra desired 8888888 as Solid Number 1111111 is not a number that the silent majority of collectors want as most want the all-coveted prosperity laden 8888888 as 8 means money, richness, fame & all that lead to a Hollywoodian lifestyle.

Also, the Prefix of DD is no blessing in disguise for any positive vibes cos DD are equal to 44 & that stands for 'Death' to some folks in this world & that means a double dose of death to some folks in some parts of this world. If the genie in the bottle could grant a wish, then, changing the Prefix of DD to HH would be the desired wish as HH represents 88, which means the instant flow of wealth, money, fame & the eternal Hollywoodian lifestyle.........

Polymer 5 Ringgit Number 10 Million Malaysia Medium Rare

This Polymer note is not a rare note, perhaps, only medium rare as one does not know if a banknote with the serial numbers of 10,000,000 is indeed a bona fide one as more often than not, quite a number of malaysian banknotes with such serial numbers have been returned by the Numero Un unbiaised & totally independent 3rd party numismatic grading company, PMG, in body-bags with the usual remark of 'questionable' & as nothing is free, maybe except for things on planet Pluto, one has to pay 5 Yankee Dollars to PMG just to be told that your piece of numismatic paper is 'questionable.'

But, of course, PMG should know better & in PMG must & should we all trust as after all, as just mentioned, they are the Numero Un dans le monde, when grading banknotes is concerned & that's why when a banknote is graded PMG 70, we do not hesitate to sell out cars to get that fricking, arousing, desirable banknote as PMG 70 is a Perfect 10 banknote, no difference than Farrah Fawcett
or even Lauren Hutton in their prime as for many of us would have 'graded' Farrah Fawcett & Lauren Hutton as 70-pointers!

But, maybe, perhaps, it would be not that bad an idea if such a similar note were to be sent to the new kid on the block called ICG. Let's give these fellas a chance and they do need a break too, as even movie stars do need a break once in a long while. Does anyone know where in the heavens is ICG domiciled?

2015 ZE Replacements RM50 Malaysia Very Rare

Once in a good long while esp. if one's soliatry virtue is patience, a solid good thing would come along and true as expected, the newly discovered jewel in the form of the RM50 ZE Replacement has been whispered in the Malaysian numismatic world among the taiko Sifus that these ZEs are rather scarce and hard to get, with several Sifus saying that these ZEs carry the rarity of at least RRR, yes, that's 3 Rs for you.

Grapevine has always been a strong source of reliable and trustworthy numismatic news & if learned numismatic Sifus say that these notes are going to be rare, of course, like sheep we have to follow, as after all, we, the numismatic newbies, our job is to follow, same like 'following' someone on Facebook, the same type of 'follow', if you get a wift of that drift!

And simple arithmetic will tell you that the current Replacement is being represented via the Prefix of ZE & it sure cannot go on & on until it stops at ZV or ZW or ZX for a Replacement Prefix. ZE is long enough cos it just can't go on & on with ZF, ZF, ZH,ZJ and so on & so forth, simple common sense will tell us. Maybe due to this simple rationale that even all of us simple folks could configure, the learned Sifus out there have taken a safe & long bullish position to insinuate that ZE could a true-blue Real McCoy in the elusive realm of numismatic rarities..........
