A review by editor Ursula Kampmann in this week's CoinsWeekly alerted me to a new book on Norwegian Paper Money. It's a massive book
documenting a massive collection. I found another article about it at the Money-Online magazine (geldscheine-online.com). Here are a few Google-translated
Kjell William Riibe:
Kjell William Riibe's Norske Seddelsamling 1695 - 2017
(Kjell William Riibes Norwegian banknotes collection 1695 - 2017)
904 pages, full color illustrations,
Size 21.5 cm x 27.3 cm, hard binding in leather with gold print with dust jacket.
Price: 1290,00 NOK (about 130 Euro)
After some time in trading, he started to collect Swedish banknotes because they were comparatively cheaper than Norwegian ones. In the 1980s, he bought all
the Swedish banknotes he could find. He bought many at Swedish coin dealers and at auctions all over the world. But even as he had already built the largest
collection of Swedish banknotes worldwide, he still did not start collecting Norwegian banknotes because they were just too rare.
At that time, most of the rare Norwegian banknotes were in private collections. It took him five years to locate the seven largest collections of Norway,
which together yielded the largest collection of Norwegian banknotes in the world.
Riibe was estimated to spend more than 80,000 hours building his Norway collection, which he documented in 2018 with a veritable heavyweight of numismatic
literature. The edition should move around the only 150 copies.
