Wow big difference though...
- this is why I have always encouraged collectors to go for UNC. Otherwise, its just "used money." It's especially important to get the best example you can from many Asian countries - which are still fairly cheap for 20 years or newer. Right now most US collectors don't give world currency a 2nd thought but will that always be the case
? If young Americans suddenly want world currency then only one thing will happen (prices go up as demand increases). Even now, some world polymer is getting tough since younger collectors like polymer. (Good luck trying to get early polymer hybrids!)
- When I started collecting world banknotes 3 short years ago, I could have bought most Fiji banknotes from late 90's to early 2000 for super cheap. Now I'm lucky if I can get them for BV. Things are changing fast folks- so might be a good time to get some nice clean UNC examples while they're still inexpensive.
