This is the Cairo 18th May1940 Fifty piastres banknote issued by the National Bank of Egypt. The banknote is green in color on multi colored background. It depicts the image of King Chephren in profile within a scalloped oval frame to the left of the front. The back is light blue and shows a crescent and three five point-stars left of center and the denomination to the right. The front shows the serial number, the date and the signature of Edward Cook the governor of the National Bank of Egypt at the time.This particular note has the serial number 520848 and is from the series A/11, which is displayed twice in black lettering on the front and not on the back. The note has a watermark showing a scarab in the bottom of the center. A nice note worthy of a spot in your collection.
Please carefully view scan as it is part and parcel of our description. Printer: Bradbury, Wilkinson and Co.Size: The banknote measures 5 1/2" by 3 1/16". Additional charges will be incurred depending on the value of the item. I would grade this banknote as a nice about uncirculated or better with all the details being very well preserved. The note shows almost no circulation signs but has been mishandled and badly stored so it has a few light creases here and there and some dark stains along the edges. Other than that, the note is clean, with no pinholes, no graffiti, no tears, and no splits. The edges are intact and the corners are fully squared with no rounding, no losses and no bumps. The note retains its crispiness, and stiffness.
A nice example of this rather scarce note in great condition to add to your collection. Please see scans for additional condition information.
