Replacement banknotes

 

To be prepared in case of failure of the bank note printing and possibly to make an exchange of banknote printing errors
or damaged banknotes, it was decided to substitute the purchase of replacement bank notes.

For us collector is important, first of all, following:

1.)  Replacement banknotes are rarer than normal circulation banknotes.
2.)  They are a little bit more expensive than normal banknotes.
3.)  There are not replacement banknotes from every signature variation.
4.)  Replacement banknotes are given later.
5.)  They have the same pick number, however, with " R " behind it. (Replacement)
6.)  From some commemorative marks there are also substitute marks.

 

Unfortunately, in the Laotian banknotes it is not so simple, such as in the Thai banknotes.
There are no fixed prefix-letter for all replacement banknotes.
We must pay close attention, in the search for it and control the offers exactly.
I'm sure that some kip banknotes are offered as circulation-banknotes, but they are replacements banknotes.
