About Uncirculated 53 EPQ
German East Africa Deutsch-Ostafrikanische Bank 500 Rupien 2.9.1912 Pick 5. A wonderful example of this highest denomination issued for German East Africa, featuring Kaiser Wilhelm II. Though all notes were designed and printed by Giesecke & Devrient, the 500 Rupien note has the distinction of having a different portrait and layout. This note was issued for a few short years, before Emergency issues were printed during World War I and the colony was subsequently ceded after Germany's loss. This is the finest graded example in the PMG Census, and the only other issued note to be offered publically in recent years. Another issued Very Fine 20 note realized $10,200 in 2017. However, this issued and almost perfect example with a low serial number is expected to break that record. PMG About Uncirculated 53 EPQ. From the Feeling Good CollectionHID07501242017
