Date: 10.07.42 (July 10, 1940).
Printer: Waterlow & Sons Limited of London, England.
Size: The banknote measures ~5 1/8" by ~3 3/8".
Pick Number: P 14B.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being still well preserved. The note has several vertical folds and a horizontal fold. The folds as well as the many bumps and creases are soiled and so is the note in general. The note also has a few minor and rather small stains. The note retains some of its original stiffness and crispiness. It is intact with no tears or splits. Its corners are mostly intact and have minimum rounding. The edges are intact with minimum roughness. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, and no major objectionable stains. This is a very nice example of this rather interesting and scarce note, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please view the scan presented for additional condition information.
