Off to a banknote auction today where a good number of collections and single notes are on offer. I set rules for myself. See the notes in the warehouse and decide on a maximum bid. I never go above my set limit. Experience tells me that a rare note will always turn up again somewhere and not to allow the adrenalin to cloud my judgement. Auctions are a great setting to buy notes. Keep an eye out for banknotes at local auctions where household goods are the main selling items. From time to time you can uncover a real gem of a note(s). Banknote collecting is never dull.
