ZB Replacement 5 Ringgit Polymer Note Malaysia

A stack of 100 Running Pieces of the new 5 Ringgit Replacement with the Prefix of ZB, which has been superceded by the ZC & soon by the ZD, which, based on unreliable grapevine will be coming out during this Christmas holiday season.

With so many various Replacement Prefixes, which actually will be the so-called rare one among the many self-proclaimed numismatists?

According to the again unreliable grapevine, apparently, the one bearing the ZC Prefix is the rare one as we very seldom see it these days in the market as market has it that not many were printed & those that were found are being 'hoarded' to be unloaded at some opportune time later at sky-high prices.

As such, the ZB Prefix is just another overprinted Prefix which will be one's folly if one were to park one's cash in it at high prices.

P.9a 1961 10 Dollars Malaya British Borneo Normal Buffalo Note

A banknote from the days of yore, whose age is much, much older than many so-called 'numismatists' of today but this is just another very common banknote from British Malaya & was issued towards the end of the British Empire in Malaya.

And as what it has been always been, there is nothing to shout about about this note as conditionwise, it's nothing to gloat about as it's only About Very Fine only, almost Very Fine but just not about there yet. 

Gloatable will be its age, which is more than half a century old & may, may this note last a thousand more years in its current state!

And if it carries the Prefix of A/1, then, there is at least a strand of gloat to gloat about as after all, A/1 represents the very First Prefix of this series and apparently, many so-called 'numismatists' of today treasure the First Prefixes as apparently everyone, including so-called 'numismatists' love to be NO.1, love to hog the NO.1 position, sozusagen! Or if one can't get the First Prefix, then, one wouldn't mind settling for the Last Prefix which is B/6, so a Prefix like A/81 which is lost somewhere in the middle is just another very ordinary brick in the wall, si tu comprends ce que je veux dire, tout le monde la-bas. Et toi, la-bas, tous mes lecteurs francophones, tu sais tres bien que je t'aime!

P.39 1 Ringgit Serial Numbers 10 Million Malaysia

2 pieces of old papermoney previously used & as catalogued by Pick as P.39 with the Last Serial Numbers of 10 Million, meaning, representing the last notes of those particular prefixes and getting a respectable score of PMG 66 from esteemed 3rd party grader, PMG, but, of course, there will be endless cause to gloat about if the scores were to be a perfect score of perfect 10.

So, as such, there is no justifiable cause to gloat about, first because of the respectable but low score of PMG 66 & second, since so many prefixes were printed right from AA to YZ & then from AAA to AGP, there are so many pieces of such 10 millionth notes all over the place and many among them, some could possibly be graded by PMG as PMG 70, as after all, there could be some priceless perfect & diamond in the rough gems amongst them.

P.32A 1992 100 Ringgit Malaysia Error INK SPILLAGE

Another P.32A 100 Ringgit papermoney from Malaysia with a dramatic 'Ink Spillage' error on the Obverse & this time, all the doubting Thomases & the Senior self-acclaimed 'numismatists' agree that this is a bona-fide error that doesn't necessite a third party intervention in the of form PMG to proclaim that this is a genuine error.

The nodding of heads by the doubting Thomases as such has given this piece of numismatic papermoney some form of immortality, matched only perhaps by The Greatest Leader of the entire mankind, Kim Il Sung's immortal Encyclopedia Of The Immortal Juche Idea, perhaps.

Perhaps, a humongous bronze statue in the form of this banknote should be considered & which should not be considered as a numismatic overkill, after all, in the name of immortality, size does matters!
