Are banknote photos allowed to be uploaded to the registry?
 
Does anyone know if photos of banknotes are allowed to be uploaded to the registry? If so,then in due course,I will be getting some banknotes scanned & photos uploaded,along with some photos of postal orders.

aidan, you're welcome to upload your banknotes even though there really isn't a template customized for it. perhaps you can tweak a custom template but the best solution would be a proper exonumia template or section. i've thought about expanding into other sections to accommodate banknotes, antiquities, stamps, you name it since day one but is a major rewrite of the code (read expensive $$). the userbase is just not there to justify major upgrades like this.

Ras,
Thanks for letting me know that I can upload banknote photos.

I don't agree with putting them under 'Exonumia',as banknotes & their close cousins,the postal notes & postal orders are very numismatic.The market for banknotes is very strong,especially those from British Commonwealth countries.As for postal orders,there is a very strong interest in them,especially in England.Prices for British Commonwealth postal orders have strengthened,especially for those countries that no longer issue postal orders,such as Belize & the Cayman Islands.Even New Zealand postal notes (which ceased to be issued in 1986) have moved upward in price.

As for including antiquities & stamps,that would make this place less numismatic.

I posted a Peruvian bank note from the 1970s a while back. I used the "World" coin template and it worked fairly well. It isn't up anymore because of problems with the image that are unrelated to Tantalus. I will get it back up eventually along with other paper currency from around the world.

The World coin template wan't perfect but had every field that I wanted to use. A bank note collector might want more specifically related fields but the custom template could be used if this is the case,

On the other hand, maybe currency and stamp templates should be added to Ras' "to do" list for the site. In addition to my bank notes, I just ended up with an album of stamps that my father and grandfather complied between the late 1930s and early 1950s. I know nothing about what I have but would love to start getting it online ti see if anyne can help me with IDing the stamps.

Regards,

Matt

Matt,
I reckon that only banknotes & coins should be listed on the gallery,as they are numismatic.

As for putting stamps on here,I don't agree with that,as they are philatelic items.

Postal orders are classed as being numismatic items,as they strongly resemble banknotes in terms of their design.The only connection with philately is through being issued through a post office.

Aidan.
