Spain 50 Pesetas Republic Issue Banknote May 17, 1927 Pick# 80 Alfonso XIII VG+
Description: A very good or better Banknote from Spain. This is the 17 May 1927, 50 Peseta. The banknote is purple and violet on orange and yellow under-print. It depicts the image of King Alfonso XIII to the left and the image of a large building in the bottom center of the front. The banknote displays the date and the denomination on the front and only the denomination on the back. The back depicts blue image titled the "Founding of Buenos Aires by Don Juan de Garay." The note has three signatures on the front. This particular note has the serial number 3,348,260, which is displayed on the front once but four times on the back in red. The note has a water mark showing a crowned woman's head to the right on the front. The note also has a Republican oval hand stamp over the King's image at left suggesting it is from 1931. Please carefully review the scans presented as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: The note is dated 17 May 1927 but was most likely put into circulation in 1931 based on the validation stamp used by the republic.
Printer: Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. England.
Size: The banknote measures ~5 1/8" by ~3 9/16".
Pick Number: P 80.
Condition: I would grade this banknote as very good or better with all the details still preserved. The note has folds, creases, pinholes, tears and splits at the ends of the central folds. One tear reached the design. The note is soiled but has no graffiti and no objectionable large stains. It has a central hole resulting from excessive folding of the note over the years. The edges have nicks and minor losses especially at the ends of the folds. Again, the note has the Republic validation stamp on over the portrait and hence this Pick 80 as opposed to being pick 72. The corners are intact with some rounding. A nice note to add to your collection or use as a place holder until you get one in better condition. Please see photo for additional condition information.
