Japanese Occupation Currency

July 13, 2006

More banknotes in the mail, this time a set of three bills from countries occupied by Japan in WWII — one Burman rupee, one Malayan dollar, and ten Philippine pesos. What’s interesting to me is that they’re Japanese currency, but they’re printed in English. Go figure!

Cost: $5.85, including shipping.

On a technical note, I’m borrowing a friend’s scanner to get these online, but it has some odd color banding that’s a pain the correct. Anyone care to recommend an inexpensive flatbed scanner, compatible with OS X & VueScan? Cheers!

  2. This will allow me to get a handle on my trading, without a doubt. I am definitely better at giving away money than I am at getting it, and I am open to all the practical help I can get. Thank you very much!
