In 1957 Iceland issued a 10 kronur note and it was soon noticed there was an error in the spelling of Reykjavikurhofen on the back. An umlaut was omitted over the "o" of Hofn. Rather than leave it, the error was corrected and the umlaut added (P38b). Crisp Uncirculated examples at a great price!
This Indian banknote is a real treasure, the paper is from World War II, the only time the Germans bombed Scotland! The Bank of England had printed the watermarked paper for King George VI banknotes of India. The paper would be over printed in India and used as money. The watermark shows the portrait of King George VI with the words ‘Reserve Bank of India’ and the denomination ‘Ten Rupees’. These banknote sheets were on the treasure ship for more than 50+ years. We bought the treasure ship that contained all the sheets. There was a great write up in IBNS Journal a few years back. We have had them cut into collectable sheets of four notes, which is a great size for display. Hold a light behind the sheet to see it in all its glory. India, World War II and treasure, what more could you want? We have seen the uncut sheet of 4 Indian banknotes bring £60-£65 each at auction. They probably bought them from us and then put them into auction... You can have them at our price and not the auction price.

A quartet of 4 Crisp Uncirculated notes all featuring a portrait of Saddam Hussein, the notorious President of Iraq.

Banknotes had to be printed in Iraq and they were necessarily crude affairs because the country lacked access to high-quality security printing. The four values in our set are the 5,10, and 2 varieties of the 250 dinars.
