5367 banknotes collected as at 15.07.2018

Something about myself:- I have been collecting banknotes (also at one time including postage stamps, FDCs, coins etc) for many years now. However, my banknotes collection didn’t pick up until the early-90s and also later the convenience of Internet that really escalated my collections. Apart from this, I am also interested in photography too, but only at amateur level. In term of my photography hobby, I have a Yashica TLR 635 (almost in mint condition), two Nikon SLRs and three digital cameras.

MACAU BANK OF CHINA - And is is for the Bank of China Dog Commemorative 10 patacas note.



This picture was recently taken by my 2002 4MP digital camera (point and shoot type). This was my first digital camera. This picture has not been edited in any shape or form. I do not believe in editing or do any alterations to all my photos, except converting it to black and white as this digital camera that I have does not come with that option (very disappointed). If I try to do that to make my photos look nicer, then that is cheating. The background came from a black gardening pot and this picture was taken outside the house when this dandelion plant was still growing on the lawn. Of course this weed is no longer there.

Footnote;
I have now added the images of the Malaysia 2017 600 Ringgit Hybrid commemorative note celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Signing of the Federation of Malaya Independence Agreement. As the note is larger than the A4 size, I have uploaded the pictures (front and back) taken by my digital camera. I have 3 pieces with serial numbers MRR 0002476, MRR 0002447 and MRR 0003433. In any collectors out there have the 60 ringgit matching any of my 600 ringgit I have, please feel free to contact me as I will be interested to buy that from you.
