This note was esteemed uniquely as "Rare" in the Standard List, this category is just rarely found in Specimen Structure, yet this completely issued model might be one of the single most prominent East African banknotes surviving. Of the most elevated level of irregularity, this A/1 prefix issued note has a miniscule series number 33 for sure. This group was assuredly imprinted in little clusters, as the mind dominant part exchanges in the settlement were overhauled by any of the littler sections. As indicated by Linzmayer's The Banknote Book: East Africa, everything except 222 of these issued notes was reclaimed by the Cash Board by 1965. This figure appears to be abnormally high; however, it does exclude notes crushed by littler banks during autonomy. As East Africa moved toward becoming Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, singular cash backers traded any enduring models. Intense unique hues and paper are seen through the outsider holder. PMG makes reference to it was recently mounted, which won't deflect bidders, as irregularity bests any minor issue this unrealistic survivor may have. At the hour of recording, there is just a single other model reviewed in the PMG Populace Report.
