    Extremely Rare 1925 1 Pound

    Fiji Government of Fiji 1 Pound 5.12.1925 Pick 27d PMG Very Fine 20.
    Representing strong buying power in Colonial Fiji, this large format uniface type was redeemed with overwhelming success by the Government of Fiji beginning in 1934, and as such is very rare today. In fact, this design was used for early issues for the Falkland Islands, Solomon Islands, and Turks & Caicos, all of which are seldom seen. Only a scant few examples are known to exist. This is the first 1925 date offered publicly by a major auction. Minor repairs were executed to the splits, which will ensure that this example survives the test of the test of time to be enjoyed by future generations. An important opportunity, and the first of this design we have offered.

    Estimate: $6,000 - up.
