Straits Settlements – Government of the Settlements $1 January 1, 1935 P-16. PCGS Choice About New 58 Apparent. Since this type circulated widely in the tropical climate of the Strait of Malacca in Southeast Asia, high-grade notes are rare. This is a small-format type printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. of New Malden, Surrey, England. There is a male portrait on the front. The back shows a profile cameo head at left and the tiger watermark at the right. At the center is a striking tiger vignette, showing the great feline in a clearing, with wind ruffling the grass in the background. Noted with "Minor Stains," but this is just a patch of foxing on the right top back edge. From the face, this has a Gem appearance and shows vibrant color. This would make an excellent pairing with the previous Sarawak 1935 dollar bill. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education SocietyHID07501242017
