Here's a preview of the shape of things to come:

These two are prototypes, and do not reflect more recent changes to the notes. I'm not yet finished.

But they give you an idea of what they'll look like.

And they're gonna be big - nearly seven inches tall.

They will be printed on lightly colored paper.

I'm a little bit excited, and a little bit daunted by the task ahead.

Wish me luck :)

Nice! I also love the mailing envelope underneath the prototypes. Is it real? Where is it from? It looks really cool. I would love a hi-res image of the just the envelope in addition to the bills once you're done.

Oh, it's real. Commemorative Chinese New Year envelope, I think. From China. I forget what was in it. Just threw it down there as a nice background. I casually collect stamps, among other things.

From the looks, it was for the Year of the Bull. It is a good research tool for the Verse.

Mike, have you ever thought about doing a sheet of stamps with plate numbered blocks?

You mean like a serial number? Like a limited edition?

I hadn't, until you said so.

I don't know how much demand there'd be for 'em - It's not like people write a lot of letters, nowadays, and I've already given the stamps away for free.

Just like each bill has a serial number, a sheet of stamps have them in each of the four corners. Collectors of plate blocks will get the block of 4 stamps in the corner with the number. So you have four blocks on each sheet.

I realize I'm probably necroing this thread, but I wanted to post to thank everyone for their contributions here. I picked up the Toy Vault version of Tall Card recently and just HAD to have some credits to play with, so I used files and info from here to make 150,000 in Alliance credit to play with. Thanks to everyone who's contributed to this thread for their talent and advice.
