After I was as good as finished with two of my collecting areas, I put all my courage together and moved on to a new collecting area. Since I don't like modern banknotes that much, I decided on the notes from the former French colonies. I always found them beautiful but on the other hand I had great respect for them because of the prices. But, if you have a little patience, you can sometimes get a bargain here too.
Here are the first two, a 20 and a 100 Piastres note from French Indochina (P-81 and P-82a)

-You cannot go wrong with any colony & the French colonies have gorgeous classic portraiture designs. Great choice IMO: and the only reason they're hard on the pocket book is that there are plenty of other collectors equally enamoured with these beautiful rich designs. Great adds "Caletan" & nice to know your patience has paid off.

Continuing my Zimbabwe collection, here is the latest note issued, a $50 (ZW$) released July 6th of 2021 but dated 2020. When released about 20 days ago, it was worth around US $0.60. It currently is worth somewhere around US $0.14. That you would need 20 of them to buy a loaf of bread and that people are complaing that 50 is too small to do any good smacks very much of 2008.
