The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 40, October 1, 2006, Article 13

WILL POLYMER NOTES MAKE "PAPER MONEY" TERM OBSOLETE?

Garry Saint writes: "I'd like to respond to your article (E-Sylum:
Volume 9, Number 22, May 28, 2006, Article 13) WILL POLYMER NOTES
MAKE "PAPER MONEY" TERM OBSOLETE?

I publish a website, previously called "WORLD PAPER MONEY PICTURE
CATALOG"

Just prior to reading your article I added a section on WOODEN BILLS
and it occurred to me that with the advent of polymer notes and the
fact that there have been fabric notes, cardboard notes, etc. the
title of my site is inadequate. I thought of changing it to "WORLD
MONEY PICTURES CATALOG" but that implies all money, not specifically
banknotes which is 99% of my site.

So I changed my site name to WORLD "PAPER" MONEY PICTURE CATALOG.
What do you think of that as a solution to the problem?"

[The following week Howard A. Daniel III offered this suggestion:
"The Standard Catalog of World Paper Money (SCWPM) has mostly
"paper" pieces in it but there are also other products like
leather, cardboard, etc.  The idea to re-title it as the Standard
Catalog of World Printed Money (SCWPM) is not a bad idea and more
closely identifies ALL of the pieces in the three volumes produced
by Krause Publications. "

So I suggested "WORLD PRINTED MONEY PICTURE CATALOG and WORLD BANKNOTE
PICTURE CATALOG as options.  -Editor]

Garry writes: "I have considered WORLD BANKNOTE PICTURE CATALOG
previously and didn't think it quite fit because I am trying to
place an emphasis on LOCAL CURRENCIES which are not issued by banks.
My primary site name is NUMISMONDO which really covers it (world
numismatics) and the rest of the name is a kind of tag line. So
I'll see how this name question progresses and then make a decision."
