Warning
A banknote piece with unknown serie prefix or out of estimated or known serial interval does not necessarily means that it's a unique and rare piece.

Due to the absence of official information, piece distribution in the country, difficulties and limits to the inhabitants to access paper money, specially since 2017 approximately, make difficult the studies and estimation of banknote issues.

The warning apply also for known pieces due to the reserved information from collectors.

The precision and quality of the information depends on these previouly mentioned factors, received reports and social network information.
