Medellin, Colombia, Restrepos y Compania, specimen 1 peso, 18XX (1874), PMG AU 50, very rare. SCWPM-S900Cp; CHPM-14771. Restrepos y Compania was established in 1854 and conducted business in Medellin until 1915. The printer's pencil annotation on this proof shows Perkins, Bacon & Co. of London began production of notes for the company around November of 1874; issued notes were released into circulation in the early 1880s. Great paper quality and color with light toning and handling along the right margin, some thins on the reverse from mounting removal (as noted on the label), beautiful vignette in the center of an allegorical female figure representing commerce. This note is one of two known for the denomination overall and the only specimen example for the type; a spectacular opportunity for the Colombian bank note collector. PMG #8071186-002.
