This post is about a US Scott 285 Jacques Marquette on the Mississippi United States 1 cent stamp. It was issued in the year 1898 and is cancelled (postal used) with a numeral 1 circle cancel. It is the first stamp of the Trans-Mississippi issue. The centering is nice and appears to be very fine. Jacques Marquette was a French American Jesuit missionary known for exploring and mapping the Northern part of the Mississippi River Valley (along with Louis Joliet).
In this post we will discuss an 1985 Indonesia 10000 Rupiah Banknote. On its front side is an image of heroine (female hero) Raden Ayu Kartini who was an important figure and advocate for women’s rights in Indonesia. She argued that the culture in Java (at the time) did not allow women to develop intellectually as they were often secluded and forced into arranged marriages at young ages. She wrote about these and other issues. After she died a foundation in her name was set up by a Dutch family who built several schools in her name. Later on President Sukarno established a national holiday in her name. Also on the front of this banknote is a picture of Candi Prambanan Temple. The back side of this paper money has an image of a female receiving her diploma. Take a look at the pictures of our 1985 Sepuluh Rebu Rupiah currency banknote below. Its appears to be in extremely fine condition with minimal wear and no pin holes or stains. Uang kertas kuno uang jaman d
