1000 Dinar Bill, Bosnia Hercegovina 1992

Bought a pack of these for a few Deutsch marks when waiting somewhere in Bosnia from a boy. Thought these were quite rare, but for a few US dollars they can be bought on numerous places on the net. I guess more UNProfor soldiers must have bought them.

Text from the bills:
1000 Hiljada Dinara
Republika Bosna I Hercegovina
Narodna Banka
1 juli, Srpanj 1992

"Narodna" means "National" in English.

Dutchbat sticker

A not perfect scan of a sticker. I think I got this one during my training at the CVV in Ossendrecht, but I'm not sure.
