One question I always had on my mind as a new collector was : Are there any paper money groups or organizations I could join where I could get access to information about paper money and meet up with like minded folks?
In search of an answer I stumbled on information about paper money collecting events which I have since been posting every weekend. Since then I have joined one main organization, though I have come to realize that there are several societies all over the world that collectors may want to join.
Here are a few of them:
International Bank Note Society (IBNS)
This is an organization for both new and advanced collectors, which helps to keep you
well abreast of new developments in the paper money collecting scene, it produces a
journal which would be very useful for the scholarly collector.
