I am sure someone could say auctions make for a good holiday.

Very nice!

There was a discussion on a coin thread about Belgium currency and how they issued two versions of the same coin, one in French & the other in Dutch. I was looking through my banknotes & I see they put one side in each language. Sometimes it was a mirror image, just different languages.
Belgium 1943 5 Francs


Belgium 1943 50 Francs


Belgium 1964 20 Francs

Been there & got all the T-Shirts.

Thanks, erafjel

Thailand was in the back of my mind. The characters look like what I've seen on coins. Thank you.

Managed to get a note from one of the private banks in Nicaragua. A 1 peso remainder from Banco de Agricola-Mercantil. A quick glance and I still see a centaur in the middle even though I know it isn't

Sure looks like one!

Looks like that note may have a bit of its neighbor note in the front left margin.

I agree, it looks like some of the remainders of the period were just cut randomly apart without the care taken for issued notes. I was more than happy that the note was rectangular

Yes, I can see that!

I always found it interesting with the Belgian coins and currency and how they dealt with the dual French/Dutch languages. I lived in The Netherlands for 5 years, spanning the transition to the Euro, and while I kept a lot of pre-Euro Belgian coinage I didn't manage to hang onto any banknotes...
