Collecting Paper Money and Bonds

Colin Narbeth, Robin Hendy and Christopher Stocker, Collecting Paper Money and Bonds, London: Studio Vista, 1979, pp119 inc illustrations.

Bought new at a high price from a bookshop downtown in 1980, this is quite a large hardcover book about notaphily and scripophily, that is simply the collecting of paper money (banknotes) and bonds.

In those early years in Singapore, most of the collectors of numismatic items were into coins rather than into paper money, and they wouldn't give much attention to this kind of book.
