5 Consecutive Malaya 1953 Queen Elizabeth 1 dollar UNC

This is a set of 5 pieces of mint uncirculated Malaya 1953 Queen Elizabeth 1 dollar banknotes. These notes are quite hard to come by and for them to be in a set of 5 consecutive notes in this pristine condition is not easy. These notes were used briefly in Singapore from the period of 1950s to 1960s, and most of you grandparents would find them familiar. Back then, 1 dollar could easily buy you a few day worth of meals. During the Channel 8 shows aired recently which had scenes from the 1950s, these exact notes were being used as props in their sets.

You can view more of my Malaya notes under the Pre-1967 banknotes section of my blog.
