    Scarce $1000 Devil's Face

    BC-36 $1000 1954 Devil's Face PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    An elusive high denomination example featuring the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with the illusionary "Devil's Face" in the highlighted area of the Queen's hair. This design was short-lived before public outcry forced the modification and re-release of the 1954 issue. As only a quantity of 30,000 of the $1000 "Devil's Face" portrait were produced, this issue is scarce in any grade; and only four examples are graded higher in the PMG Census.
