Our official January 2022 NYINC World Paper Money auction is shaping up to be quite a nice sale. One item we will be offering is a Uruguay P-A98b Banco Nacional 1896 500 Pesos in PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
It is printed by W&S and is perforation cancelled. A portrait vignette of President Joaquin Suarez is at left while Arms are seen at center flanked by cherubs. At right is a map of Uruguay with two jaguars below. The reverse of the note depicts the Oath of the 33 Orientals, which was painted by Juan Manuel Blanes in 1878. Out of four notes graded by PMG for the variety, this is the finest listed at the time of cataloging. PMG comments "Small Tear." PMG Pop 1/None Finer.
