P 49a 2007 50 Ringgit Low Numbers AA 0000013 PMG Superb Gem UNC 67 EPQ

A commemorative Malaysian 50 Ringgit numismatic paper that left the printers about 10 short years ago that has been making waves thereafter, purportedly due to its so-called "low mintage" by the all learned collectors, as after all, all if not all of the numismatic collectors are very smart and highly intelligent folks, who normally buy very low and more often than not, sell or rather sold the highest.

Of course the numismatic junk that's featured today is not of a gloatable material as all Smart Alecs know so well, 13 is not a good number; this number ain't gonna bring no lots of luck or prosperity for its associated with that particular Friday of that particular month.

Of course, the ever reliable grapevine has it that some small-time collector living in a rather remote hamlet has the all desired sassy, hottie AA0000001 piece, but apparently she doesn't want to sell despite an offer of 100 hundred thousand Yankee Dollars being dangled in front of her as she prefers to hand it down to her great grand-daughter. Not a bad idea as it could be worth a million dreamy bucks by then, perhaps....

P.23 1983 Malaysia WA Replacement 50 Ringgit Rather Rare PMG Uncirculated 65 EPQ

Not sure if it's true or not but according to a self-anointed numismatic sifu, this Replacement issue is a rather rare piece in such a condition, namely, in an uncirculated condition, regardless if it has been graded 63 or 64 or 65 or sixty what by respected third party grader, PMG.

The  above could very, very true as according to the well-referred PMG's Population Report, only 63 pieces have been graded so far & the highest of which, is 66. None graded at 67, 68, 69 or even the very desired & the all superlative PMG 70.

And apparently, according to this sifu, most of this Replacement are in so & so sub-standard condition & in fact, it's hard to get one in UNC Condition, according to him still.

Such talk cannot be dismissed & could very well hold water as one cannot see any piece with PMG 65 or even 66 on sale on any internet platform currently. Perhaps, only in a big, grand yearly auction like Spink could one see one of such nice grade being put up for sale.
