Manga banknote
« on: February 18, 2020, 11:40:35 AM »
A curious 'banknote' from my Field Day is this, a 100 Something with the words Shohoku Slamdunk. These point to a Japanese sports manga (graphic novel, comic strip), a series called Slam Dunk. It comes with a pretty exact date: 1990-1996. However, the text left on the first picture is not Japanese, but Thai, I believe the lowest line says Skam Dang or Slam Dunk again, but I can't read the rest of it. Here's the Thai Wikipedia page of Slam Dunk.

Your identification looks quite correct (I was immediately reminded of the ancient Dutch series "Kick Wilstra", based on soccer player Abe Lenstra). However, it's hard to think of a use of such an elaborate note. The best I have come up with is novelty page marker...


An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
