BIAFRA ARTICLE PUBLISHED
NBS member and E-Sylum subscriber Ben Keele's article on
Biafran numismatics has been published in the February issue
of The Numismatist. It is entitled "Biafra's Short-Lived
Monetary System" and can be found starting on page 164.
In his introduction, he writes:
"Not long ago, while visiting
a local coin dealership, I noticed a Biafran 1-pound note.
It was inexpensive and looked interesting, so I bought it.
Later, when I attempted to find out about my new acquisition,
I was disappointed by the lack of information in hobby
literature. To fill the gap, I researched Biafra and its money
in books and contemporary periodicals."
