Hi all,

Fairly new to the forum.  

I've found myself interested in sets of notes printed in different ink colors, but otherwise identical.   I'm posting a group that I just completed today, and I have one more, also from China, that I might get around to later.  Any other examples people have?china1940 (1 of 4).jpg  china1940 (2 of 4).jpg  china1940 (3 of 4).jpg  china1940 (4 of 4).jpg

Welcome to the forum, numisto! I bet you get some good responses to this topic. Rainbow notes are always interesting.

Here's one I've always liked from Russia.

I believe this set runs from 5 to 500 from French Indo-China.  I will be writing an article for the Souvenir Card Collectors Society shorty with these notes, souvenir card, & bonds using this vignette.

The green tint variety is an order of magnitude rarer than the red tint variety. ABNCo did a sales job on the bank, pushing the green tint (the bank had always used red). Soon after the green tint was put into production it was discovered that the green ink formulation literally destroyed (wore down and dulled) the pen nibs used to hand sign the notes after only a small number of sheets were signed. This noticeably changed the look of the signatures (think going from a sharp thin pen line to a broader line); not a good thing. The State Bank of Ohio pushed back and ABNCo quickly returned to red (at the time, the State Bank of Ohio was one of the company's largest customers) after only a few weeks. If you find a green tint $1, buy it.

The green ink is a particularly hard chromium oxide, patented in 1857.  Rawdon, Wright and Hatch and later ABNCo used it for many notes in the period.  Here is the patent itself.

Thanks for the interesting replies.  Here's that set from China that I mentioned, 1914 Bank of Communications series.  There is a green one, too, but I've never even seen it for sale.
