This is an interesting thread! I ASSUMED the banknote silk threads would be similar/same as the revenue silk threads, per my previous post. I am learning a lot about something that I knew little about! And, Stephen-P, your photos are a goldmine!!! Thanks.
Thank you for those kind words Mootermutt! That is genuinely encouraging to hear.
In forums like these, there are people that know either "too little" or "too much" about many different topics, so this vastness of information can easily become intermingled and confusing at times, no doubt about it.
It certainly requires a large degree of specificity on my part when posting here, but it's nice to have a solid community to go through all the weeds with!
