Scotsgreyhound - Gotta love the Canadians in Space note. I've often thought to make a small collection of Space Related Vignettes on banknotes. And the designer of the new Eastern Caribbean States notes did good. I often find myself criticizing newer designs that seem cluttered and too busy - but these are better in my opinion. I really like the underprint design that mimics what looks to me like brain coral on the front and waves on the back.

Great notes, Owatchman! I especially like the Japanese note - Can't go wrong with an image of Mt. Fuji on it. I like how both notes offer a scene with a reflected image in water.

I find it a real struggle as the entire Frontiers polymer series was a huge disappointment to me & many collector friends abandoned collecting altogether after its release.

Although, in retrospect, the $5 & $10 were somewhat better than their predecessors $20/$50 & $100. The colour of this series is just so drab when you see them in person "DaveL"
But there is a redeeming backstory behind the launch of the $5 which you can read here:
https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/as...ut-1.2491549

And, while I cannot find the story (behind the story) how did he launch a note that was produced in 2012 (when the note was released in 2013)? They made this note with the $100 substrate ($100/Borden's image on the holographic strip) so the actual note (notice the security in the article) is a true one-of-a-kind rarity.

Update:
Just found the link to the story-behind-the-story:

Nice UK post-war pounder "Scots." I don't see very many of those offered in high grade (& can imagine that people would have been hard-pressed to keep them pristinely tucked away right after the war when the need to spend money was so urgent). BV seems a bit on the low side (& the few examples I've seen up for auction double the $45 figure the SCWPM gives for UNC) but what do I know?

Thanks walk2dwater.
I like the old 1 notes, they can be bought quite reasonably usually.
Often wonder myself how some survive in top condition from that era too.
As always condition is key, serial numbers too, certain serial numbers are sought after.
For example, a 1948 (Peppiatt sig) with an S_ _ A serial could be worth double my note's value and a 1948 'replacement' serial S09S would be worth easily into the hundreds of pounds.

@walk2dwater
ETA - I picked up this little book a few years ago for 50p in a charity shop and it's been great for me looking up serial numbers etc
Obviously it is outdated regarding valuations but it's been really handy

- I realized it was the earlier versions (P363) with some of the variations you listed and the earlier signatures (Mahon. Catterns) that were demanding the higher prices than seen on the book (after I hit return/posted my comments).

Nice & yes, I really need to get a proper guide from the UK (instead of the basic SWPMC).

Thanks scopru, jbuck.

@scopru if you like large notes, you gotta get one of them, is it the largest banknote issued? I'm not sure, believe the Philippines 100,000 peso (1998) is bigger in size
