True, but we are talking about a pretty good case scenario here.

There are many places where currency gets invalidated practically overnight. India is one example.

Were people allowed to turn their notes in for other valid currency? or anyone who was holding these just lost their money?

The notes went out of use in 1980 and were made completely worthless in 2000.

While 20 years may seem like a generous amount of time, many people lost a lot of money.

Grandparents passed away with large amounts of their successors inheritance hidden in mattresses. Others lost millions due to the fact that they were stored in safe deposit boxes and safes.

We have successfully completed a secret project which began earlier this summer.

 
What is it?

The 5th series 1000 Swiss Franc note was produced between 1956 to 1978 and was one of the most valuable notes on earth. In 2000, its value was nullified by the Swiss National Bank (SNB). A bank in a country renowned for being historically one of the most stable.
 
This banknote is famous for its striking imagery of La Danse macabre(i.e. the dance of death). Originally, its design suggested a universal and inevitable part of life- all things must end.
 
This note has been amended to change the meaning of its image. It attempts to highlight the fragility of centralised fiat based currency and instead suggests the usage of crypto currency to mitigate against such devaluations.

 
Is the note genuine?
 
Yes. Original notes from the 1960s and 1970s were sourced in Switzerland and prepared for printing on. The original underlying design was created by Pierre Gauchat and printed by De La Rue in London, England.
 
 
How many exist?
 
10 official notes, with one error. Serial numbers range from A01 to A10.
 
9 of 10 notes have been already sold to private buyers from this forum to finance this precarious project.
 
A01 will be listed at auction.

 
Are the official notes slabbed?
 
Yes, all notes have been slabbed. Wed like to thank Owlcatz for aiding us in not only sourcing but designing the slabs.

Well, that was a fun read!

How some of these photos got out... I'm still scratching my head there.

Anyways better explain:

1) Those are joke Hillary notes. I gifted them as a gag when I started Polymerbit. I think 3 were given away. In the early days, I would sometimes print multiple sheets of the same serial number because I had a primitive way to cut them and would often have to redo the cut.

The paper used was an experimental basic security paper I was testing before I found Teslin as a better alternative.  

2) The test notes on paper should not have been released. But it is possible a test is floating around somewhere.

3) I can neither confirm or deny the existence of that secret project.

EDIT: 4 Total printing for the red 20 mbtc colour test prints was 6 pieces. Your serial is the last.

EDIT 2: Regarding this custom serial number. It is rare that we do out of normal range releases. He was very lucky since we were actually testing serial numbers that day. Thought I'd surprise him.

Hello  Smiley

As you might know; we have increased our printing quantities in early 2018. Its become apparent that this increase was not nessesary.

Therefore, we are reducing our production back to the original 50 Pcs for test prints and 100 Pcs for final editions.

You will see the quality increase on final prints due to the ability for us to focus on them better.


New Proposed Price list:

Test prints $34.99

Final print $19.99
