Series 611 Military Payment Certificate Value
Series 611 military payment certificates were only used in Cyprus, Japan, Korea, and Libya. Just under 114 million in face value was issued. Once again, just seven different denominations were printed (5cents, 10cents, 25cents, 50cents, $1, $5, and $10). The fractional denominations are colorful, but not very imaginative. The higher denominations were original BEP designs. Series 611 MPCs were the first military payment certificates printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. They were introduced into circulation in January 1964 and taken out on April 28th, 1969. That is the longest period of use for any of the 15 different series of military payment certificates. Fortunately, there were no different printing runs here. Values are based purely on condition, denomination, and whether or not the note is a replacement. Replacement notes have a serial number that does not end with the letter H. This is where things get strange though. Replacements notes were saved by the hundreds on the five and ten cent denominations, yet they are ultra rare for the twenty-five and fifty cent notes. Just because something in theory should be rare doesn’t mean that it always will be rare. Outside factors like hoarding can make otherwise rare items quite common.
