British Armed Forces 1/- 3rd Issue PM26b Hole Cancelled Unc
From the end of the Second World War until the late 1970s, British military bases overseas used their own form of currency. They were known as British Armed Forces Vouchers and the idea behind them was to stop black marketeering in the local economies. When the Berlin Wall finally fell, they were discontinued. The government disposed of surplus stocks and these are identified by two holes as a form of cancellation. Ones without this cancellation are much scarcer. We offer examples of the cancelled 1 shilling note from the Third Series first issued in 1956. Uncirculated with limited availability.
