Malaya Japanese Invasion Money $1 MA707432 Good VF
*** A scarce piece of the $1 Malayan Japanese Invasion Money banknote with the Serial Numbers of MA707432 in fresh & original Good VF condition.
My collector-friend, Choo, recently mentioned that the $1 JIM banknote with Serial Numbers in UNC condition might possibly be the rarest JIM banknote as none of this issue in UNC condition has surfaced in any major numismatic auctions & in fact, many of us have yet to see a UNC piece.
The 'highest' grade of this issue seems to be those in VF condition & most put for sale are in VG or poorer conditions.
Apparently, this issue with Serial Numbers were printed in Japan & brought along by their troops during the invasion. Many were lost & damaged during circulation.
