This note was cut in half and later taped back together. I believe it was a common security practice at that time for people to send cash one half at a time. The recipient would than rejoin the two halves together. The note was crosshatch cancelled. This circulated note is actually more rare than uncirculated remainders.

Back to Europe

Ireland, located in the Atlantic Ocean west of Great Britain, was an integral part of United Kingdom from 1800 to 1921. five-sixths of the island became the Irish Free State dominion in 1921, and a republic in 1949. The northern one-sixth of the island, known as Northern Ireland, remains part of United Kingdom. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Ireland.
