Last Friday night I took a peep at the Lots on offer at the local Auctioneers. Most times it is a cursory glance as banknotes rarely appear but Lots 1 and 2 ‘jumped out’ at me. Lot 1 was a box of ‘Banknotes of the World’ in their own folders. 128 of them in all. All boxed and in perfect condition. The other Lot was was a small card box with a collection of Specimen Notes. On the day of the auction, I won both Lots…..no one interested in them. What a brilliant day for me. I know it is not Spinks or DNW but it was brilliant and the Specimens have sold already. Keep you eye out for your local Auction House catalogue…..there might be a diamond (s) amongst the coal dust!
