     My last catch for this year. I have been waiting for the right time and the right price to have any of 1st to 4th series of Seratus Ringgit Malaysia to be added to my collection. But I did not put high hope of possessing a Sa-Ratus piece, what more an A/1 prefix one! at least in foreseeable future. But I guess it's my luck then to have chance of keeping this first prefix of the first series Sa-Ratus Ringgit Malaysia at a very reasonable price.
    Too sad the note has been washed and got major tear on it. After had successfully bringing her home, I must say that I am still eluded by the beauty of this note. The purplish tone on this note makes me thinking of my mother, which is very fond of that color. Does any of your banknote reminds you of someone? By the way Mom, don't mad at me, I'm buying this note because of you. Good excuse right? hehe

Beautiful banknote, sad that the note is washed :[ it is unfortunate that people are making the foolish mistake of washing and "cleaning" notes.

Nice banknote you have here.
Noticed that these older design notes are getting increasingly expensive.
Haha, suppose your mum would be proud of you for indulging in such a wonderful hobby.
Happy collecting, mnfaj :)
