  1. Here is a surprise: this one was printed on our very own Venezuelan Mint! (small serial).

    Prefixes A and B have been reported to exist, at least 200 million notes issued (!!!!). Expect replacements to be under prefix Z (if you can find ’em!)

    Also… dat color scheme. Ugh. Looks like a 10-bolivar note after a bad experience with a washing machine :/
