***A seldom seen Choice Uncirculated $20 note signed by Aziz Taha issued more than 20 years ago from Malaysia bearing the all elusive First Prefix of TA.
There are lots of this note in lower grades but it's now apparent that it's quite hard to find those with the First Prefix in Choice UNC condition.

British North Borneo 1921 25 Cents

***The early British North Borneo's predilection for issuing huge pieces of banknotes is again shown on this piece of 25 Cents uniface banknote dated 1921 which measures 7.5 x 3.5 inches.
Size obviously matters and was a main criterion for the early British North Borneo banknotes regardless of the value they carried, resulting in tremendous eye-appeal among collectors today.
