I want to wish Good Luck and Happy Auction day to all Malaysia Numismatic Society (MNS) members for Auction No. 151 that will be held tomorrow (25 March 2012) at Jabatan Muzium Malaysia, Muzium Negara, Jalan Petalawati, 50480 Kuala Lumpur around 9am. For non members, you can also go and watch the auction yourself. If you don't know where is the place, you need to go to the building near the old train on display at the Museum. With the publicity about the auction in KOSMO newspaper recently (you can read it here; Dickson Niew in KOSMO), I think large crowd will be coming to the 1st MNS Auction this year. You can also buy banknotes, coins and stamp at the bourse table that will be open on that day.
What is the main attraction for this Malaysia Numismatic Society auction No.151? For me, the most interesting item on Auction is the East India Company B.Balemark Prince of Wales 1 pice, 1/2 pice coins and 1929 Straits Settlements 10 dollar banknote but I know many collectors are waiting for the result of Ali Abul Hassan 50 ringgit ZA replacement with a reserve price of RM3800. If a buyer buy the note, many collector will be smiling because I know many of you have that notes too. You can read more about the Auction list and pictures at Sifu Dickson Niew blog at MNS Auction 151 Countdown.
