An amazing African paper money rarity is coming up in our August ANA auction in Rosemont, Illinois. This German East Africa 500 Rupien note, dated 1912, and graded Choice Uncirculated 63 by PMG is the single finest graded. Despite a minor restoration noted on the holder for a small corner outside of the design, it is by far the nicest seen of this classic banknote that only circulated for a few years prior to World War II.

This week’s highlight is found in lot 50464. It’s a Straits Settlements Pick 18a KNB22a-d 10 Dollar note in a PMG CAU 58 holder that is free of any comments. This $10 KGV design is one of the most pleasing we have handled. The 1934 date is much more challenging than the later 1935 issue. These notes when offered are typically barely at a Very Fine level and usually have problems. This example goes against the norm and offers Gem appeal with just a touch of circulation. ​​
