When creating the ankers we attempt to capture interesting aspects of each bill. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee selected areas such as serial numbers, year or denomination for specific purchases. Each piece has interesting aspects on the front or back. There are even ankers that appear to have just white space, but reveal watermark features when held up to the light. The full image of the banknotes is just a sample and not the actual ones used in the production of the ankers.
Please note that the Numis series of ankers are sold individually and not as pairs
