    Scarce Mombasa-Era 100 Shillings Specimen

    East Africa East African Currency Board 100 Shillings = 5 Pounds 15.12.1921 Pick 16s Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    Stunning originality is present on this high denomination beauty. The 1921 series of notes, issued through Mombasa, is rare in any denomination, and across all formats. At the time of cataloging, only three issued notes and three Specimen are graded in the PMG Population Report. Completely original paper is accompanied by a printer notation and a perforated cancellation. Much scarcer than the later Nairobi variety, this note is assuredly missing from many of the best collections, making this offering an important opportunity for the collecting community.

    Estimate: $6,000 - up.
