    Lovely 5 Piastres Issue

    Sudan Cassa Mediterranea di Credito 5 Piastres ND (1940) Specimen Pick M1s
    This is the lowest denomination of the series with the smallest in size. Apollo is depicted on the attractive blue and lilac obverse of this 5 Piastre note, and a sheath of wheat is on the back. This specimen is perforated cancelled and irregularly cut, which accounts for a formally lower grade. With only one set of these notes known and a 5 Lire example realizing $17,625 in our April CSNS Auction, the given estimate is expected to be easily surpassed. PCGS New 62.
