Here's the announcement for the latest World Banknote Auctions sale, a specialized collection of the banknotes of Jordan.
World Banknote Auctions presents the Raqmu Collection of Jordan, which has now been posted to its website,
www.worldbanknoteauctions.com. This collection, put together over several decades by a dedicated collector, contains both issued notes, specimens and proofs. It is highlighted by a complete specimen book of the second issue, prepared by Thomas de La Rue as a presentation piece in 1955. The entire collection contains 182 lots, ranging from the first issue dated 1949 to the series introduced in 2002.
The Live Sale takes place on our website and through our Mobile Apps on Thursday, November 4 at 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST. As usual, buyer's premium is kept at a modest 15% ($5 minimum per lot) and shipping is flat-rate, $10 within the United States and $25 overseas.
We have created our first printed catalog for this collection. A limited number of copies will be distributed at the Den Bosch Paper Money Fair in the Netherlands held October 23/24. We will also have select highlights on display at our table, K-8. If you are not attending the show you can purchase a copy of the printed catalog for a minimal cost below.
