Initial attempt at an issue by the First Philippine Republic. With serial number, without signature as all known examples come. Watermarked paper; imprint Z. Fajardo at bottom right outside of frame on back, the only time it appears in this location for notes of this Republic. WBG terms this "UNC 62 common pinhole right margin". Decades ago, the late Aldo P. Basso, reknowned Philippine author and researcher, offered these on the market. Since then, they have become extremely difficult. Outstanding example; we have offered this only once previously.

A26a 1 Peso L. 30.11.1898-24.4.1899
Extremely rare issued note. What renders this piece likely unique is the Revolutionary government stamp over the embossed seal. Neil Shafer had never previously seen ANY Philippines type with such a stamp! Purple series A, brown serial number. Embossed seal at left. Hand signed by Pedro A. Paterno. The first Philippine Republic had barely issued a few pieces when it was overrun by American forces; at that point, the Philippines became a United States possession. From an extremely relevant and historic series. WBG terms this "Ch. VF 35 staining beneath revolutionary stamp". Less than twenty numbers away from the Pineda example without stamp which hammered for $11,000. A landmark opportunity for the most advanced collections.

Here is a terrific start to the silver certificates; this original is in better condition than the Pineda piece.

WBG terms this "Ch. AU 58 TOP". This note is ex-Amon Carter. We are pleased to present a full run of all types and varieties from 1903 offered individually starting with this lot; the success of this small size currency issue paved the way for the reduction of US paper money a couple of decades later.
