I'm writing a little report, for those who take interest in findings while in foreign countries.

I have spent several days in Peru. I have come across about a 100 notes from circulation. I also went to get a strap of uncirculated consecutive 20 sol notes directly from the central bank of Peru as well as ten 200 sol notes, also consecutive. None of the notes I have come across during my trip were a replacement note, assuming the current replacement notes have the prefix Y, a thing of which I am not even sure. Most of them had the prefix A or B(for the older notes).

That leads me to think they are pretty scarce. I wish I had had more time, I would've managed to buy more straps and check for replacement notes and get a better idea of their rarity. I did however find in my strap what some call a "bookend" note with the serial 1370137.

Glad I can contribute. Sadly, even though I thought about it, I did not take a picture of the strap since I thought it was like any other strap, a big pile wrapped up with a white band of paper. Also I sent them to circulation so I don't have them anymore. I do however still have a 10, 20, 50 and a 100 nuevo sol note as well as nine of the 200 nuevo sol notes. I just had them scanned, enjoy.

Yes interesting indeed. I thought it was because the motion windowed security thread on the notes was in the way, as it seemed on the 100, but then on the 200 the signatures are printed right on the security thread.

I do in particular like the colour of the 50. Any chance of a scan of the reverses?

Totally agree with huckles. An excellent series. I always like to see countries incorporate aspects of their history on notes. I would imagine it fills the people who use the notes with a sense of pride.
