Hi, I've noticed on several specimens that along with the classic "000000000" there is another serial number. Concrete example here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vietnam-100...em439cb70518

On this example, am I safe assuming that AA 0006891 indicates this is the 6891st specimen printed of that kind(2004-2006 100,000 dong specimen note)?

And if this is the case, the lower the number, the higher the value?

How can I know how many specimens of a certain kind were printed ? I would like to know if a number is relatively low.

Thanks

So weird. The serial number down the side is all zeros. I've seen all zeroes, and I've seen serial numbered specimens, but never both on the same note.

Really ? That is odd, it says 55$ for UNC in the 17th edition and unpriced for VF. You have the 18th ed I assume ?

Baanos, you are right. I was looking at my 16th edition when I replied. Oops.

Howard Daniel's books on the coins and paper money of Vietnam have the production numbers for specimen notes.
