Zimbabwe Note

Extracted this from a Chinese blog, 聞.見.思.錄, nothing to do with the article, it’s just this $500 note above that intrigues me.  Let me ask you a question, are you one of those guys who examines all the bank notes in your pocket?  I know a few peeps who do so for collection purpose, they look for printing flaws or what not.  However, the bank note above is genuine, notice anything different?  It says “Pay the bearer on demand five hundred dollars on or before 31 December 2007.  Guess you didn’t notice.  Reason maybe due to the latest restructure of the country’s currency system, guess they’re not sure whether they can still make good of the payment after that date.
