Cyprus Government of Cyprus 10 Shillings 30.10.1914 Pick 4s Specimen. Sharing a common design with the 5 Shillings denomination, the 10 Shillings note is printed in olive green on watermarked paper and portrays a profile portrait of King George V and a version of his royal coat of arms. Reflecting the ethnicity of the island's inhabitants, the English text is supplemented by Greek and Turkish information. Due to the haste that surrounded this series' design and printing by TDLR, there is no back design. Perforated CANCELLED with a solid zero serial number, this example served as a Specimen and has traces of mounting residue along the left border. PMG grades the note Choice Uncirculated 63. There is only one other auction appearance of this extremely rare note design, with this example crossing the auction block for $30,452 in 2015.
