    This paper money had been in my collection for 10 years. It's a Nigerian pound from the time of the British rule there in Africa. I see no date on it. Today I've been offered a plenty of them but do not have an idea on their values. I wish someone could tell me the approximate price of the following paper. Gratefully..

    If it is Nigeria it is post-independence. Prior to independence it was British West Africa.

    Interesting papers with that red Indian color..
    During the British rule, the currency was the pound, reminiscent of the English Sterling pound. Later during independence, the national currency became the
    Naira. Maybe the above papers were issued during a transitory period, just few years after independence since they are denominated as pounds even after independence.
    BTW.. I just scanned the reverses of 3 similar papers. The first two seem to have somewhat a little distinguished serial number. The third paper has a big red arc within the white circle. Could these papers have a higher value. I'm still new in this attractive section. Thanks for any of your kind comments. Redpoun.jpg Redpod R.jpg RedpArc.jpg
