Eastern Nigeria 1 Pound (1967) Unissued Proof Banknote

Face: leopard head at left, pipeline and gas storage at low center

 

Back: ships and dockside cranes

 

No notes ever issued for Eastern Nigeria. These are archival photographs of face and back designs of 1 pound proofs. The proofs were printed around January 1967, just a few months before this region of Nigeria declared independence and officially named Biafra. Sold at Spink & Son Dec 9, 2014 auctions for 420 GBP ($557).
