Bogota, Colombia, Banco Nacional, 5 pesos, 28-10-1899, series A, serial 000518, PMG Choice VF 35, finest known in PMG census. SCWPM-253 (incorrect on PMG label); DP-226. Printed by Otto Schroeder in Bogota, Colombia (incorrectly stated on label as a product of the Litografia Nacional) as the first emission for this series of notes. In addition, Parra notes the Banco Nacional 1899 5 pesos begins with series A, making this low serial number 000518 among the first issued for the type; he also states notes from this printer are rare. Choice example with especially bold blue underprint and light overprint (perhaps Otto Schroeder getting the printing method down), well-defined red Banco Nacional seal on reverse, the PMG notation of previous mounting apparently related to a faint paper pull on the reverse. PMG #8053596-005.
