Description

The Deutsch-Ostafrikanische Bank or German East Africa Bank issued this One Rupie banknote in 1916.

It is a lovely example as a great many of those available are quite heavily stained.

In 1915 and 1916 there was a significant distribution of emergency paper money issues of which there were quite a few varieties. 

Most of the differences hang on the signatures, the eagle crest of which there were 3 varieties, the borders with 3 varieties and the number of stars to the left and right of the – Interim banknote heading. This one has 7 stars left and 14 stars right which indicates the first printing from Dar es Salaam. 6 and 13 would indicate the 2nd series. Scrolled bars indicate Tabora printing.

Some of the serial number capitals were also over printed with an X or a Z but no one is sure why.

Priced to sell, this is a far better than average example to put away.
