Hoonaloon News 28 April 2015 - Uncirculated Banknotes - A Cheap and Cheerful Hobby

Collecting uncirculated banknotes has become a popular hobby in recent times, no doubt due to the affordability and attractiveness of many of the notes on offer.

Budding collectors are presented with an almost mind-boggling level of choice often for a very limited outlay.

I myself began a collection a while ago and it seemed natural as our business began to diversify to begin to deal in them myself.

Here are a few recent additions to our stock ;


Banknotes (from top) ; Bangladesh 1 Taka 1982, Russia 1 Rouble 1991, Turkmenistan 5 Manat 1993, Vietnam 100 Dong 1991 .
These and others from our stock can be founded by clicking here ;
Happy Collecting !

Hoonaloon ! 14 April 2015

Each week, we`re planning to highlight one item from our stock of badges, books, First Day Covers and Banknotes.

This week we have selected this American badge from a branch of Lions Clubs International ;

It relates to a particular Lions Club branch in Chicago, which seems to have a strongly  Hispanic American membership.

The Branch is identified on the badge (Chicago District 1A), as is the year (1980). Around the edge of the badge are a variety of phrases representing different aspects of HIspanic American culture ( Pan American / Azteca / Jose Marti / Borinquen etc).

The badge is clean, intact and undamaged with only light wear.

Along with a selection of other items from our stock, this badge can be found at ;
