Straits Settlement $10 1935
This is my latest acquisition. This is a $10 note issued by the Government of the Straits Settlement which means this is legal tender and used for Singapore, the Malay states in the Malay Peninsula and Brunei. This particular note was issued on 1st January 1935, this is the final note that was issued with the portrait of King George V. King and also under the Straits Settlement Government. In 1940, the first notes printed King George VI and under the Board of Commissioners came into circulation.
This $10 note has a tiger's head as the watermark. It was engraved and printed by Bradbury, Wilson & Co Ltd. The 1935 are the least expensive of this series which was printed every January from 1931 to 1935.
