World Banknote Auctions presents the Raqmu Collection of Jordan, which has now been posted to its website, www.worldbanknoteauctions.com. This collection, put together over several decades by a dedicated collector, contains issued notes, specimens and proofs. It is highlighted by a complete specimen book of the second issue, prepared by Thomas de La Rue as a presentation piece in 1955. The entire collection contains 182 lots, ranging from the first issue dated 1949 to the series introduced in 2002.
The Live Sale takes place on the website and through their Mobile Apps on Thursday, November 4 at 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST. As usual, buyer's premium is kept at a modest 15% ($5 minimum per lot) and shipping is flat-rate, $10 within the United States and $25 overseas.
World Banknote Auctions has created their first printed catalog for this collection. A limited number of copies will be distributed at the Den Bosch Paper Money Fair in the Netherlands held October 23/24. They will also have select highlights on display at their table, K-8. If you are not attending the show you can purchase a copy of the printed catalog on their website.
