Do you have a banknote that you consider an unusual piece of paper currency?
Perhaps a banknote issued, and then withdrawn?
A Bank that lasted only a short while, rendering it's issued banknotes rare?
A note that is special to you?
Please do contribute guys.
I got this banknote last month, 1 Sucre, Ecuador, (1920) issued by "El Banco sur Americano".
The Bank in question was formed by a Spanish citizen called Dr Rafael de Meza, who ignored the requirements by law to have any Gold/cash backing, amongst a few other issues.
He went ahead and opened a Bank in Quito, Ecuador, named it "Banco sur Americano" and actually issued 1 and 5 Sucre banknotes.
The banknotes were of fairly low grade paper & not up to security standards.
Due to not adhering to certain laws & compliances the Bank was closed down by the Government after a few days.
My banknote has no signature or serial number, so is effectively a Remainder & is quite common.
An issued "Banco sur Americano" 1 or 5 Sucre, with signatures & serial would be a nice find.
Here's my note, about EF- 1 Sucre (1920) from the short-lived "Banco sur Americano"
