British North Borneo – British North Borneo Company 1 Dollar July 30, 1919 Pick 15. PCGS Very Fine 35PPQ. Eric Newman collected dollar bills from around the world and formed them into an interesting topical collection. This is a beautiful Asian dollar note with a vignette of Mount Kinabalu, the country's highest peak, at the center. Wide-sized, a format also used on earlier notes. A vibrant red protector is across the bottom with Arms in the center. It has a very light green back (with an almost gray appearance). In exceptional condition for a type often found tattered and frayed from use in Borneo's tropical climate. Very bold, with great paper originality, and embossing observed to the back. Worthy of a premium over current catalog value and recent auction trends. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education SocietyHID07501242017
