I have never actually 'owned' one of these before, but thought I'd better get one for face value from the bank before the new Alan Turing polymer version comes out:
Well done.

Picked up a few Portuguese notes, I'll do the 20 escudos today.
Looking good!

Nice pick up 'NumisRob' (always fun to get a note for FV) and it looks to be in great shape.

Nice examples from Portugal 'hfjacinto' (those are the first 3 examples I picked up from Portugal late last year).

Got this 5 Rand (P-119d) from South Africa recently:

Continuing with my Portuguese notes.





My mom is in Portugal, I asked her to check to see if can find a few more.

Today is 100 escudos. Coolest part about these notes is that my wife purchased them and that I used these when I was a kid. Sadly they got replaced with the Euro which is about as boring as currency can be.



The notes below are my favorite of Portuguese currency.

Your wife sounds like a 'keeper' to me

Every time I visit Europe I fall in love with the countries (the cycling, the parks, the old buildings & esp the beer!)

I really like all European banknotes, even the lowly Euro which has been kicked around the block by a lot of currency collectors (on this & other forums). But I never buy notes while there as they're typically priced in Euros and I rather keep them & use them on all the fun things we can do. Other funny thing is, one of the toughest banknotes to find is the 20 issued from Portugal, with the Duisenberg signature but printed in England (@ TDLR) seen in this post. His signature was only on the Euro for a brief year (& I tried to buy one since my first 2003 trip). (Took me about 3-4 years to get that 20)

but I hear you & hope to get some more pre-Euro cool designs from Malta, Cyprus, Spain, France & Portugal (to name a few).

So other than eBay or coin shows where can one buy foreign notes? Any good websites?

www.delcampe.net

A little complicated to use but definitely worth a look.

Thanks for the recommendation.

This is the last note we picked up.

Allens of Ohio had a few Portugal notes that I didn't have and the prices were better than ebay so I picked up a few more. My wife ACTUALLY told me to buy them and like a good husband I didn't question her :)
