Currency 1957 South African Reserve Bank One Pound Banknote Van Riebeeck P# 92d
Description: A beautiful extremely fine or much better Banknote from South Africa. This is the South African Reserve Bank One Pound note issued 11 January, 1957. The banknote is blue in color on multi-colored under-print with portrait of Jan Van Riebeeck in an oval frame to the left of the front. There is a maritime scene in the lower right corner of the front. The back is light blue and displays a lion standing and holding scrolls in his paw in the center.

Size: The banknote measures ~5 7/8" by ~3 1/4".
Pick Number: P 92d and is listed in The Banknote Book as B720d.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as nice extremely fine or much better. I am tempted to grade it as About Uncirculated since all it has is one light central vertical fold. Other than that, the banknote is clean and has no stains. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The edges are intact and show no roughness. The note retains most of its original stiffness, sheen and crispiness. The corners are intact with no bumps and are fully squared with no observable rounding. The note has no creases and as mentioned earlier has only one vertical central light fold and hence our grade of XF to AU. The colors of the note are clear, vivid and very bright. A very nice note in excellent condition to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
