Auction: 13047 - Banknotes of Bermuda - Dr. the Hon. David J. Saul Collection
(x) Bermuda Government, £5, 1 August 1941 (1942), serial number A 000001, dark brown and pale green and orange, head of George VI in oval frame at right, value at left, at low left a vignette depicted the cruise ship 'Monarch' in Hamilton harbour, the signature of the Asistant Colonial treasurer G.L.Young at left, of the Colonial Treasurer John Trimingham at right, reverse brown and pink, arms at centre, value at left and right
(Pick 12, BG B12, Aspen P.76), there are a few classic rarities in the Commonwealth series, the Bermuda green 10/-, the Malaya $100, the Sechelles 100 rupee, the Rhodesia £10. These notes in mint condition are 'hens teeth!', the brown Bermuda £5 is probably rarer than any of these in any grade. Not only is this note a crisp and bright uncirculated, it is the number 1 and ticks every box for looks and rarity. Truly exceptional, a magnificent banknote
