Choice Very Fine 35
East Africa Government of the East Africa Protectorate 1000 Rupees 1.9.1905 Pick 1Gp Proof. The highest denomination of East Africa's first series, denominated in Rupees. Though the steel plate guilloche pattern and rosettes are the same across all denominations, this Proof and other examples in tonight's session highlight the small marks which are used as anti-counterfeiting devices, along with the watermark and colored protector which were used on issued examples. This example is from an earlier stage of the design process. Printer's annotations and previous mounting are noted. This is the only example of this design regardless of type in the PMG Census. PMG Choice Very Fine 35. From the Feeling Good CollectionHID07501242017
