This silk bank note is in remarkable condition and is a truly lovely example of the cloth notes issued in this region during the hyper inflation period of 1922. Notes during the crisis were printed on any materials to hand and examples of linen bank notes, velvet bank notes, wooden banjoes and even ones impressed in aluminium exist for the discerning collector. Some of the silk notes were in fact made from abandoned parachutes as well as locally woven material.
Many examples are available but few are of this quality with fresh vibrant colours that look as if they were only just printed.
Each side of the note was printed separately and then the two sides were sown together. Some examples have ornate lace borders and these notes demand premium prices.
Any collector of this type of currency would find it a beautiful addition to their collection. This is bank note is real history to hold and admire and almost a century old at that.
