Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to present a scarce Costa Rica P-S151 1895 1 Peso note graded Very Fine 25 by PMG in our January 2021 auction. PMG has encapsulated just six examples of this 1 Peso note, and this is the finest graded by their service. Light blue and dark orange ink offers eye appealing, enhanced by wide margins. A vignette of one woman is at center, with another woman holding a basket at left, while an agricultural scene is featured at right. The reverse displays an intricate design in dark blue ink. PMG comments "Stains Lightened." PMG Pop 1/None Finer.
