This is the 15 September 1919, 50 Centavos, issued during the Portuguese administration by the regional Banco Da Beira. The banknote brown in coloring on multicolor under-print on the front with the word PRATA in deep blue within a frame in center top. The front also has the name of the regional bank in Beira or "Banco Da Beira." The banknote displays the date and the denomination on the front and only the denomination on the back.

I would grade this banknote as choice about uncirculated r much better with all the details being still very well preserved with vivid colors and no signs of fading. The note has no creases or folds, has no soiling, has no splits or tears and shows no roughness at all along the edges. Its corners are fully squared with no observable rounding, no bumps, and no folds. The note has no pinholes, no graffiti, and no objectionable stains. The note does have a small dark spot at the top center of the front which is probably due to miss handling and not from circulation. This is the reason we grade the note as choice AU instead of a straight crisp uncirculated. Please see scans for additional condition information.
