Malaysia RM10.00 Banknote With Missing Potrait Of Agong.
A Forgery Freak Notes.

"............help him to authenticate his set of Malaysia freak banknotes.There are two pieces of RM1.00 notes,one piece of RM2.00,two pieces of RM5.00 and two pieces RM10.00.
Among the seven banknotes, except the two RM10.00 notes, the other five notes  are exhibiting  with same errors; i.e. extra 'Agong ' portrait on the reverse,what a "coincident" !"

Now,one of these two "except the two RM10.00 notes" was potraitless.No image of colored Agong's potrait on the note.This was an other state of art forgery freak notes.

If you mind to learn a little basic of printing process, I am sure you should be able to detect this forgery potraitless Malaysia RM10.00 banknotes.

Please take a 10 X magnifying glass and take a close look on the missing Agong's potrait, it is not difficult to see  there are still traces of earlier print marks. It was sold for RM30 and above.

  1. Hi Dickson,
    Ya, we have seen quite a number of these floating around in the market.
    Nowadays, we noticed most dealers will let their regular customers know about these forgeries too even if they are selling them.
    What we are worried is that the dealers themselves do not know about the forgeries or the unscrupulous dealers and sellers.
    This reminds us about those incidents of Malaysians coming back from China with top grade green imperial jades esp bangles or pigeon's blood red Mogok rubies from Myammar, Cambodia or Thailand.
    We would normally tell these people to just imagine if the bangle was genuine, and there were thousands of them being sold in China, how much they would cost collectively, considering a piece of top grade imperial green jade bangle could easily fetched HK$1.0 million to many times higher, while the same applied to 4 carat and above good grade Mogok rubies.
    Haha, strangely we have friends coming back with even bigger rubies and thought that they have got extremely good deals only to be told that they were flux grown rubies or even cubic zirconias, while most of these jades could be doctored or simulated jades.
    (However we have got to admit that there are now many up-market shops selling top grade jades in China but mind you, they are NOT cheap, hehe.)
    We believe the same analogy applies to numismatic or rather any form of collectibles too.
    So buyers beware!
    Just our two cents :)

  2. Hi whycollect,
    Your comments reminded me of tea lovers happily showed me their "Very Vintage Tea" that they bought upon returned from China,and teased and insinuated our genuine vintage Pu-er and Liu Bao,the taste not even "get close" to their "Very Vintage Tea". Haha!

  3. Hi Uncle Dickson, i have been to amcorp mall and seen some notes which looks like the one above, the problem is a small part of the left side of the agongs face still has a clear print while the rest of the part is white, even online i see people selling those with a small part of the left side of the agongs face printed does that mean that the note is fake? Will a real error have a small part of the left side printed?
    Or will the whole potrait be completely blank.
