Do you have a banknote that you consider an unusual piece of paper currency?
Perhaps a banknote issued, and then withdrawn?
A Bank that lasted only a short while, rendering it's issued banknotes rare?
A note that is special to you?
Please do contribute guys.

I got this banknote last month, 1 Sucre, Ecuador, (1920) issued by "El Banco sur Americano".
The Bank in question was formed by a Spanish citizen called Dr Rafael de Meza, who ignored the requirements by law to have any Gold/cash backing, amongst a few other issues.
He went ahead and opened a Bank in Quito, Ecuador, named it "Banco sur Americano" and actually issued 1 and 5 Sucre banknotes.
The banknotes were of fairly low grade paper & not up to security standards.
Due to not adhering to certain laws & compliances the Bank was closed down by the Government after a few days.
My banknote has no signature or serial number, so is effectively a Remainder & is quite common.
An issued "Banco sur Americano" 1 or 5 Sucre, with signatures & serial would be a nice find.
Here's my note, about EF- 1 Sucre (1920) from the short-lived "Banco sur Americano"

King Gyanendra Bir Bikram's image is printed in a brown colour on this note, it was later withdrawn and re-issued with the King's image printed in red.

Not sure if this one qualifies but its from Yugoslavia (P92a) and was "printed "GUVERNE" in latin without final letter R (engraving error) Series AF" according to SCWPM:



-not particularly rare (or high BV) but a nice "oddity."

Thanks walk2dwater, that Yugoslavia note is a great addition to the thread topic

This Bulgaria 50 Leva banknote was issued in 1990 & withdrawn shortly afterwards, around the time of the fall of Communism.
The banknote maybe denotes transition politically & harks back to Bulgaria's pre-Communist time as a Monarchy, with the Patriarch's royal palaces at Tzarevetz Castle pictured on one side and the Communist Coat of Arms on the other.

This banknote is one of my favourites because my wife and I spent our last full day in Hungary exploring the Royal Palace at Budapest & enjoyed the views of parliament and the Danube. I really like the back image featuring the river view of the palace. I also like the fact that it is P111b so it was produced"without watermark" which with higher BV than 111a "with lauer leaves watermark" I assume must have been a shorter run.

Excellent addition to the thread topic walk2dwater, thanks for posting that banknote.
I'm a bit of a fan of WWII era Hungarian banknotes, some of their designs are lovely.

Here is what I would call a banknote oddity. It is a piece of wertbestaendige notgeld issued in Rosswein, Germany and dating from 1923. The face value isn't in marks as would be expected.....or even an actual specific and named commodity which they occasionally did in late 1923.... like rye, sugar or timber for example. The face value for the note here states ' Drei Einheiten'




The face value is for '3 units' of either Gas, Electricity or Water!
