Iran 100 rials Shah Overprint P118b Unc

The Islamic Revolution of 1979 overthrew the Shah of Persia in Iran. The authorities wanted to eliminate all reminders of the Shah but were not in a position to immediately replace all the banknotes in circulation. The solution was the take remaining stocks of banknotes and obliterate the images of the Shah which appeared on the front and in the watermark area until new issues could be introduced. From this turbulent period immediately after the revolution, we offer Crisp Uncirculated examples of the 100 rials with the portrait of the Shah obliterated (P118b). The back of features a view of the Pahlavi Museum.
