Provincia de Buenos Ayres. 1 Peso Metalico, 1823. P-S121r, BA-8r. Remainder. PMG About Uncirculated Net. Mounted on Paper, Tear.
Due to a shortage of coins, the Treasury Department decided, without authorization, to issue banknotes of 1, 3 and 5 Pesos. When the Banco of Buenos Ayres objected, the notes were withdrawn. Only examples of the 1 and 3 Pesos are known. All of the issued notes seen are in museums or bank collections. This is one of two 1 Peso remainders known to be in private hands and, as such, is extremely rare.
PMG About Uncirculated Net. Mounted on Paper, Tear.
From the Robert J. Bauman Collection.
