Forgeries Freak Banknotes !
Last Wednesday ,I received a set of freak notes from my good friend who is a serious collector of Malaysia coins and banknotes.
He wanted me to 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" !
And what a coincident, while I was still studying and looking at those freak notes,the "Freak notes man",Mr.David just walked into my shop,the Dickson Niew Collection Corner with his lovely wife.
I grabbed the opportunity to invite him to authenticate these notes and asked him to teach me ways of detecting an forgery error notes.
He confirmed to me that these were the Post Print Job freak notes, some unscrupulous guys printed the 'Agong ' portrait on the reverse with bad intention.
I hope all freak notes collector friends be extra careful on these freak banknotes surfaced on the market recently.
