Rare Camp Seven Two Shillings
AUSTRALIA. Camp Seven Bank. 2 Shillings, 1941. S/B-553a. PCGS Choice About New 58 PPQ.
This note's obligation is the highest of the series from Camp Seven. Mendel and Stahl signature. Additional history of these notes includes being printed by Harry Byers in the newspaper Riverine Grazier's printing station. It is believed that the total amount printed for this denomination is 2,000; considerably less than the 4,000 one shilling pieces printed. It is believed that of the series that produced around 9,000 total pieces, only 200 survived.

The bright orange colored paper shows gorgeous detail and is absent of any cancellations. The sheep on the reverse show the number 7 for the camp, in addition to the names of the internees inscribed in the wool. "THIS NOTE IS VALID ONLY WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF CAMP SEVEN INTERMENT CAMP HAY" is printed in bold on the reverse along with "The Bank is under no obligation to honour this Note if presented by Holders outside of this Camp." in italics.
