Malaya 1942-45 $100 Japanese Invasion Money Error
***A bona-fide error 'Banana Note' bearing the value of $100, with print missing in certain areas of the Obverse & dramatic upward & leftward shift of the Reverse.
Even the prefixes are out now of position, due to poor printing, something not very surprising from the, then, incompetent Japs.
However, it's not often that one sees good error issues credited to the Japs' then incompetency with their now infamous banana hyperinflation issues & perhaps, even this banknote with the value of $100 couldn't have bought the despised Jap army private a miserable banana, then.
