 ACKROYD NOTEVAL ~ BANKNOTE COLLECTORS' VALUATION SYSTEM
Banknote price-guides, such as the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money (Krause Inc), usually give only two or three values for each banknote - corresponding to very basic grades of condition, such as VG (very good), VF (very fine) and UNC (uncirculated).
This system eliminates the guesswork and instantly calculates the value of your banknote if it is not quite in the same condition as the ones given in your value-guide.
So, when you need to know the value of a banknote that is between one of the grades given in your value-guide, you could get a pencil and paper, draw a grid, like the ones illustrated above, and plot a curve and read off the value, as above.

Banknote appraisal is the science and art of determining the value of a certain note at a certain time.
Many people think that rarity means very old but this belief has no ground; there are many banknotes that are very old but at the same time very common and available in a very wide range.

 Propaganda Banknotes of Vietnam
At any rate, the propaganda banknotes that were produced in the greatest number and are certainly the most famous are the parody-counterfeits of the 1, 2 and 5 Dong notes of the Democratic Republic of (North) Vietnam.
The first variation of the one dong propaganda banknote is different from all the others in that the propaganda message tag is at the right of the front of the note.
