Banknotes are looking Up!

OK it's been quite a while since I've written on this blog. First I need to apologise to all you loyal readers who still kept visiting. I've had quite a bit of a change in the last year and therefore my silence.

Hopefully all that has been taken care of and I will return to give you an update regularly.

My shock though is to find that not only is it difficult to get banknote collectors around me, but that even most of the bankers do not know what I'm talking about when I mention the fact that I collect banknotes. They think I'm joking.

I'm sure a wrote an article a while ago about how we in Nigeria tend to "spray" celebrants at parties with brand new notes! The practice still exists and now bank workers spend new notes. You are much likely to get new notes that way. When you go to the bank to withdraw money the customer usually more than likely gets old worn smelly notes!

The think is this like everything else will eventually change! Banknotes are looking UP.
