Otto, would you mind a few links to pictures and such? I have a bit of a hobby collecting fake currency, so you've already piqued my interest.... assuming you ship internationally? Smiley

Good Morning,

 I am still producing Reproduction Victorian/Edwardian Banknotes for your fine Steampunk/Neo-Victorian outfits and Imagination needs. I do ship anywhere in the known world and I pay for shipping. I do apologize for not being more active. Some would call me a "Reclusive Entity", I am not sure if that is correct or not. I currently offer banknotes from the UK, United States, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Iceland, India, Japan, Spain, and Turkey. More in the future as time permits. I am fully operational now and the printing presses are rolling. Please, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me via this post or at seeingmonsters32@msn.com
 Also please see me on Facebook or at http://ottotheconfused.deviantart.com/ with many examples of my work.

 At your service,

Professor Otto the Confused

I don't think this is the site I was referring to earlier (films of antarctica), but if you want fake banknotes...Wink

A good Day to You all,

 I am still producing Reproduction Victorian/Edwardian and a small selection of WWI and WWII Banknotes for your fine Dieselpunk, Steampunk/Neo-Victorian outfits and Imagination needs. I do ship anywhere in the known world and I pay for shipping. I do apologize for not being more active. Full-time university and work seem to hamper my extra time. Some may call me a "Reclusive Entity", I am not sure if that is correct or not. I currently offer banknotes from the UK, United States, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Iceland, India, Japan, Spain, and Turkey. More in the future as time permits. I am fully operational now and the printing presses are rolling. In fact orders were just shipped to Canada, Holland and Germany last week. Please, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me via this post or at seeingmonsters32@msn.com
 Also please see me on Facebook or at http://ottotheconfused.deviantart.com/ with many examples of my work.

I say, Otto, you've been busy in your too-long absence. Welcome back.

One interesting aspect of British banknotes from the Victorian Period is that they were very monochromatic and simple looking. In contrast the Austria, German, and Union (US) banknotes (even the one-sided Confederate currency) were far more elegant. Am I wrong in that?

US (Union), Am. Civil War 1860s


Austria 1860s


Britain, 1880s

I found this page on the Bank of England website to be a very useful reference for old British banknotes.

I also have a PDF file I downloaded some time back but it seems to have disappeared from the site.

Impressive how some English banknotes were legal tender from 1725 until 1945. The same £100 bank note spent in the U.S., sixty-seven years before the US dollar was even invented, would still purchase goods in the UK (or most of the Empire) until the last year of the second world war.
