Highlight of Palestine banknote

Ultra-Rare 1927 10 Pound to be Offered in the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the NYINC

We are currently building an extensive selection of banknotes to offer in our January 2020 New York International Numismatic Convention sale, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt in New York City. One of these incredible lots will be a brilliant Palestine Pick 9a 10 Pound Banknote featuring a key date of 1927.

The note is certified by PMG as Very Fine 25, free of any comments from PMG. Extremely close inspection reveals a nearly microscopic pinhole, and some edge wear typical for the grade. This is without question one of the finest examples of the type known in fully issued form, as many of the finer PMG examples have been cancelled and are thus not in their original issued state.

The note features bright blue inks, and deep red and black impressions. It displays great overall detail and pleasing centering. A vignette of the Crusaders Tower at Ramleh is at left on the front with the Citadel of Jerusalem at center on the reverse side in the holder. The note will be an incredible addition to even the most advanced of general world paper collections. It will open at $52,500.
