The Bahamas Government One Pound Banknote Repeater Serial Number 500500 Pick Number 15a Good Very Fine or Better Currency Note
Description: A beautiful very fine or better banknote from the Bahamas. This is the One Pound No Date (1953) banknote issued by the Bahamas Government and introduced into circulation in 1953. It has black designs on multi-colored underprint with green and pink tones on the front. The front of the note shows a sail ship in a circular frame to the left and the image of a young Queen Elizabeth II to the right. The back is black in color and depicts Bahamas arms to the left and denomination to the right. The front displays the denomination, and three signatures with the central signature being that of Latreille and the one to the far right being that of Burnside making it Pick Number 15a. This particular note has the repeater serial number 500500, which we like very much, with the prefix A/1 both printed in black twice on the front but not on the back. The note has a security thread left of center. This is a relatively rare note in such a nice grade and quality. Just a great note to add to your collection.

The note has no pinholes, no objectionable large stains, no tears, and no splits. The edges are intact with general roughness. The corners are intact with some rounding.
