“According to the major reference on Bermuda banknotes [A History of Bermuda and its Paper Money by Nelson Page Aspen] the first 50,000 notes were not recorded as having been delivered [which would have included this note] and very few have appeared on the marketplace.

“In total, a maximum of 300,000 were printed, but probably fewer were issued. The example offered here is original, but does include some foxing due to improper storage. Still, a very scarce type and one that seldom appears on the marketplace.”
