1945 Bolivia 500 Bolivianos Banknote
The Potosí silver mines, the attraction of the Spanish conquerors until the first years of the 1800's brings a language of Bolivia's history to a bittersweet stop. Mining activity was the support of the national economy and somehow it is revered by this 500 Bolivianos banknote's reverse.
The note is well preserved regardless of its circulation. The military and statesman it bears on the obverse is Colonel Germán Busch who had a shortlived presidency from 1937 to 1939. Not many Bolivianos bills of this denomination ran around for a long period of time, so having an item like the one I show here is a plus to my collection.
In my own words.

Freedom. "Never give up."
"In God we trust."
Which is the actual color palette of this note? You show two different "looks"... ; )
Thanks! That's what I thought. Nice note indeed! ; )
Yes, the more realistics are the captions with flag and, the hand written note. The other pics are the results of light and proximity. Same sort of reaction happens while photographing coins. Some turn out goldish. Thanks for your comments and visits.
I ment where do you get all your coins and notes? Dealer, eBay ,net?
Thanks Mike, like I told you on a previous note, I get my items from donations, it is rather unusual for me to buy from a dealer or house.
nice bill! How much is the exchange rate to American $?
Dejar friend, sorry for the delay replying you. According to ifcmarkets.com::: 1BOB = 0.14500USD Remember, this is a current rate. The note I show here has been discontinued and Bolivia is under severe inflation.
