Cyprus Government of Cyprus 5 Shillings 30.10.1914 Pick 3s Specimen. The lowest denomination of the first series of notes ordered by the Cyprus Government from TDLR, this 5 Shillings note is printed in blue on watermarked paper and has a relatively simple design with a profile portrait of the reigning monarch, King George V, and a version of his royal coat of arms serving as the main design elements. Serving as a Specimen to familiarize government officials and money handlers with this new design, the note has a solid zero serial number and is perforated CANCELLED. It has traces of mounting residue along the left border. PMG grades the note About Uncirculated 53. This note design is excessively rare, with only one other auction appearance occurring in 2015 when it crossed the auction block for $30,452. We believe that tonight's auction action may challenge that price level. HID08701242017

Estimate: 22000-25000 USD
