Cartagena, Colombia, Estado Soberano de Bolivar, 10 pesos, 9-11-1885, serial 02847. SCWPM-S126a; CHPM-11730. The highest denomination issued from the state treasury of Bolivar and extremely rare as an issued note. This Hamilton Bank Note Company produced note features vignettes of a seated Justice figure at left and a train at its station in the center. It should be noted that the train vignette, called "Waiting for the Signal," was not exclusive to this note and the placard BOLIVAR on the side of the train was added afterwards to tie this unrelated vignette to the location it was expected to circulate in. VF with pinholes in the upper corners and small hole at center, small edge-nick in left margin, minor stains, nice original and bold ink colors on both sides, very difficult in any form due to redemption of this high value note.
