The reserve currency is commonly used in international transactions and often considered a hard currency or safe-haven currency.
Model numbers included in the 500 series are the 500, 505, 510, 535, and 590.
Introduced in 1960, all model 500s are based on the same basic concept designed by Carl Benson.
After numerous attempts to hit a flushed bird, I quickly realized the problem was my lack of skill shooting wild birds on the fly; thus Wilhelmina was born.
The name stuck, and to this day every time I take her out hunting I find myself asking that same question.
