Reintroducing the “Love” Note

We’ve all heard of the storied Seychelles series containing the Scum, Poop, and Sex notes, but we have always wondered what word, if any, could be found on the 100 Rupees. A couple of months ago we were pleased to discover the word LOVE in the note, made with branches just directly left of Queen Elizabeth II. This leaves only the 5 Rupees note for which no message has been discovered.

We are pleased to offer a wonderful example, one that features what we believe is the lowest serial number available for the ultra-rare first year, A/1 000021. Given the new word discovery and the powerful red and pink Valentine-like color enhancing it, we anticipate a premium on “LOVE” notes going forward. PMG Comments “Minor Rust.” This incredible example will be available in our official auction of the January 2024 New York International Numismatic Convention.
