Guatemala, Banco Agricola Hipotecario, 500 pesos, 1-6-1917, serial 5099, very rare, PMG VF 20, finest and only example in the PMG census, ex-Clark, Standard Catalog Plate Note. SCWPM-S106a; Clark-GP40. Waterlow & Sons made full use of the this large size (210 mm by 130 mm) note's canvas with a dramatic vignette of Neptune, trident in hand, triumphantly riding through ocean waves aboard his chariot drawn by three sea-horses (hippocamps) along with a smaller vignette in the lower right corner depicting a woman riding a winged chariot pulled by two lions; the intricate geometric reverse design has the vignette of a woman wearing a laurel wreath at the center. Circulated with a small edge split confined to the lower center margin, vibrant ink colors and decent paper quality. With this note having been off the market for decades, this is an opportunity that shouldn't be missed to acquire one of the rarest Guatemalan notes in existence. Pedigreed to the Odis H. Clark Jr. Collection and plated in his reference work Paper Money of Guatemala (1971), then subsequently sold in Almanzar's auction 31 of May 25, 1982, lot 3054, plus the plate note in the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money, Specialized Issues. PMG #8067687-004.
