Enjoyed eye balling that RSA 10 Rand 'Caletan.' I also liked the examples you added 'IGE' (some of them I have).

Here's one I've wanted for a while & found at a reasonable price, a 5 Rupee P-30b from the tiny island nation of Mauritius. The islands are off the coast of Madagascar in the middle of the Indian Ocean. With a population of just over a million, these notes can be hard to source (esp in higher grades). This last series featuring QEII, which reminds me of the Seychelles series, started in 1967-68 for the (a) notes. They had a second print release (with new signatures) again from 1972-73 (b & example below). The majority of notes come from the last (C) version which were produced between 1973-1982. Watching for them, I saw about 3-4 times as many c version as a & b combined.




Fun fact, the previously thought "extinct" dodo bird was discovered on the islands & is featured on the coat of arms (below "Five Rupees")

-thank 'jbuck' I have been searching for more notes from this tiny island nation & haven't seen a thing since.

Here's another note with two boats from another tiny island nation, Fiji. It's from the back of their $5.00 (P-78a):

Three vessels of various sizes in the same picture. Actually bought it for the train on the other side, but the "sea side" is nice too.

China 1914, 1 yuan, Bank of Communications.

This one isn't too bad either, can't see exactly how many ships and boats there are - 8, 9? Also bought because of the trains on the other side.

China 1941, 50 yuan, Bank of Communications.
