Here's my latest acquisition.
AB Tumba Bruk
The paper mill was once owned by Sveriges Riksbank (the Royal Swedish Bank) since 1755. With the introduction of the Euro, the factory was spun off on 31 December 2001; they no longer produce Swedish banknotes, but they are one of the producers of Euro banknotes (the 6-character printer code prefix is “C”). The firm has also printed banknotes for Congo. The firm was acquired by Crane & Company, the paper provider for banknotes of the United States, in January 2002.
800 of these test notes were produced for the IBNS 2nd Annual European Continental Paper Money Bourse of 1988 held in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Notice the back is blank where the upper "note" section of the note resides. Some examples of this note, with the lower section cut off exist & sell FOR LESS. If you find one of these, DON'T CUT THE LOWER SECTION OFF, EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT!! Like a haircut, you can't put it back on.... Why someone would reduce the value of a note I have no idea.
The vignettes are hull & masthead of a ship, as well as shipbuilder Fredric Henric af Chapman. It has a HEAVY intaglio printing and Braille at the top left.
