MAXIMUS WORLD PAPER MONEY COLLECTION

In a February 3, 2022 blog article, Stack's Bowers Paper Money Researcher & Cataloger Chris Dahncke listed some highlights of the Maximus Estate Collection of World Paper Money in their upcoming February world paper sale. Some beautiful notes here. -Editor

  Barbados. Barclays Bank 100 Dollars 1926

Lot 72021: Barbados. Barclays Bank (Dominion, Colonial and Overseas). 100 Dollars, September 1st, 1926. P-S103a. Uncirculated. A cancelled example of this scarce 1926 dated 100 Dollars note (usually cancelled examples are from the 1933 and 1935 series). This example has the Manager's signature, but it is lacking the Accountant's signature.

  Brazil. Republica dos Estados Unidos do Brasil. 1000 Cruzeiros 1949 proof front
  Brazil. Republica dos Estados Unidos do Brasil. 1000 Cruzeiros 1949 proof

Lot 72033: Brazil. Republica dos Estados Unidos do Brasil. 1000 Cruzeiros, 1949. P-Unlisted. Front & Back Proofs. Very Fine. Casa da Moeda do Brasil. Appealing front and back proofs of an unprinted 1000 Cruzeiros design.

I've cropped the image to better fit our format - see the complete lot description online (linked in the full article). -Editor

  Kaiserliches Gouvernement von Kamerun. 5 Mark 1914

Lot 72054: Cameroon. Kaiserliches Gouvernement von Kamerun. 5 Mark, August 12th, 1914. P-1a. PMG About Uncirculated 50. One of just seven examples graded by PMG for this elusive German Kamerun variety.

A plain Jane, still of historical importance. -Editor

  India. Government of India. 1 Rupee, 1917

Lot 72112: India. Government of India. 1 Rupee, 1917. P-1c. PMG Very Fine 30. A scarce variety which features the signature of H. Denning. The paper is white which is an anomaly for the assigned grade.

There's a whole sub-specialty of banknotes picturing coins, although most are in the 19th century. What's the most recent dated banknote picturing a coin? Are such notes in circulation somewhere in the world today? -Editor

  Iran. Imperial Bank of Persia. 5 Tomans

Lot 72128: Iran. Imperial Bank of Persia. 5 Tomans. 1890-1923. P-3. Remainder. Fine. Printed by BWC. No place name, stamps, signatures, date or serial numbers. An interesting 5 Tomans remainder, the first that we have encountered.

Like a Persian rug! -Editor

  Italian East Africa. Banca d'Italia. 1000 Lire 1938

Lot 72131: Italian East Africa. Banca d'Italia. 1000 Lire, 14.06/12.09.1938. P-4a. Fine. The colors remain bold, with the design retaining excellent appeal for the assigned condition. Extremely scarce, and sure to attract attention from collectors of Italian and Occupational currency.

Beautiful note. -Editor

  Banque de Madagascar 20 Francs

Lot 72151: Madagascar. Banque de Madagascar. 20 Francs, ND (1937-1947). P-37. Uncirculated. An exceptionally preserved 20 Francs note. This example appears to be nicer than the note we offered in our April 2021 auction.

The bold yellow color is unusual for a banknote - another pretty piece. -Editor

  La Republica del Peru. 50 Soles 1879

Lot 72162: Peru. La Republica del Peru. 50 Soles, June 30th, 1879. P-8. Very Good. Dated June 30th, 1879. Incredibly scarce, with few examples found on major third-party grading population reports. Likely missing from even the most advanced collection of Peruvian paper money. We have not offered an example with the signature on the left side of the note before.

There's something to love about even a heavily circulated note like this. A well-executed design, nicely balanced with great details. -Editor
