These notes were printed for circulation with serial numbers (including P169A, the 10 Piastres) but were either recalled or not released when the heading (in arabic) was still "Royal Government of Egypt" (after the fall of Farouk...)

Scott Cordry has been collecting coins since he was a lad of 10, in 1959. Like many other numismatists, he started with a Redbook and a few of the blue Whitman Cent, Nickel and Dime folders. When the American coins that he needed got too expensive ("that is, when they were more than face value"), Scott began to collect world coins. His first interest was in Swedish coins, engendered by a visiting semi-athletic team that passed through San Diego. He eventually moved on to Islamic coins, just to have an area of interest guaranteed to have less competition for buying, and that presented serious intellectual challenges.

After graduating from high school in 1967, Scott studied History at Cal-Berkeley for four years. He spent his junior year at the University of Lund in Sweden, studying History, Scandinavian Languages, and semi-athletic teams. He graduated from UC Berkeley with "great distinction" and Phi Beta Kappa honors. After college, he worked for Worldwide Coins in Atlanta for a few months before going into business for himself, and then in partnership with Freeman Craig. In 1975, Scott again decided to pursue world coins independently, and he has been in the foreign coin business ever since.

Scott is a member of the ANA, NI, AINA, ONS and IBNS, and has been a member of the IAPN as well, from 1979-1993. In addition to his private sales, Scott has been cataloging world coins for Heritage World Coin Auctions since October of 2002.
