. . . I also rather collect lower denominations since they're seldom stashed in Safety Deposit Boxes (SDB's) like the higher denominations.

I agree with you entirely there!

Thanks (& nice to know I'm not alone with that perspective)

Mid-level denominations (Five, Tens & Twenties) are also tough for many of the smaller island nations (or dependent territories). While Twenties would have been considered a high denomination during the WW1-2 era, by the 1970-90's I would consider these more mid-level (50-100 being high).

This £10 initial date from Gibraltar (P-22a) might fit the bill (pun intended) :

This is one of my latest acquisitions. When Bhutan, isolated behind the mountains, first issued banknotes back in 1974 no one took notice.
This is the highest denomination of the second emission in 1978 (according to local catalogue) or 1981 (according to SCWPM catalogue).
Unforunately I have only been collecting banknotes since 2013, but I have read, that 15 years ago this note was hard to get in UNC. Nowadays I was very glad to get this one even in the shown condition. It brings me down to two missing notes from Bhutan.

Acquisitions are drying up a little here. There's just nothing interesting for me in the market at this moment. So I scoop up some cheap emergency issues here and there :)

Belgium, Châtelineau 1918:





And from Germany (1921) a set from Münster (comprising a 75 Pf (light green) and a 1 Mark (yellow) as well but apart from color, denom and s/n these are identical).

I'd been looking for this one in (at least) this grade for quite some time. Just won this very beautiful and colourful note on eBay. With a VERY special s/n: As you all know, this is both an "eBay RADAR" and an "eBay Solid Sevens" LOL :D

Local emergency issue from a village in north-eastern France, WW1. Uniface, the reverse is blank. Funny because of two things that actually both puzzle me:

1. the snake leather underprint
2. the denomination. I think they meant "0,50 Franc" or "50 centimes". Half of a centime wouldn't possibly be worth the effort of printing the note, let alone designing it.
