MORE ON THE WELSH BLACK SHEEP BANK NOTES

Joe Boling writes:
Regarding the Black Sheep company of Wales, I once had the same 10 shilling note illustrated in last week's E-Sylum. I acquired it about 1971 from the then-auctioneer of the International Bank Note Society (IBNS). I was more interested in the fact that it had to have the 2 pence imprinted tax stamp than that it was circulating local currency. Looking in my disposition records, I see that I sold it to a MPCFester in 2004 (I just returned from Fest X, the tenth annual MPCFest, on Monday this week).

The MPC Fest is a marvelous annual event where collectors of Military Payment Certificates and other military items get together to buy, sell, trade, and just have fun. I've never attended one, but hear nothing but praise for it. This year attendees were bowled over by the surprise visit of Hans Walter, one of the members of Operation Bernhard!

MPCFest organizer Fred Schwan has suggested starting a BiblioFest for numismatic literature collectors. Great idea, but would someone be willing to organize one? -Editor
