Lot: 3

(x) Imperial Bank, Kingdom of Persia, 1 Toman, Teheran, 11th July 1907, red serial number A/C 065681, produced by Bradbury Wilkinson & Co. and issued at the Teheran branch of the Imperial Bank of Persia, this note is distinguished by its unique two-digit year stamp. This particular stamp, exclusively in use between 1905 and 1908, was occasionally extended to 1904 and 1909 in select cases. The date of this specific 1 Toman 1st series banknote is July 11, 1907. On the reverse is serial number A/C 065681, featuring the split prefix letters, printed in red instead of the usual black. This subtle deviation not only enhances its visual appeal but also contributes to its security features. Although this banknote represents the smallest denomination within its series, which often indicates frequent use and potential wear, it has managed to maintain its remarkable condition. It stands out as the finest example of its kind within this collection
