My banknote collection is currently somewhat limited for two reasons: I am fairly new at including banknotes in my collection, and banknotes tend to be much more expensive compared to stamps. Also, there is very little I can find on a collecting category of “Dead Countries”, so it requires much more research on my part.


The following are the banknotes I have scanned and catalogued in my collection, but more will be added. As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome and encouraged.
