Mona Lisa on old Costa Rican banknote - What's it Worth?

Recommended Posts

It's very, very rare, specimen or circulation note. I remember a similar one as above, in a auction, that was estimated at 1500$ or something around there.

Are we talking specimen or issued? Big difference.

 

For the issued notes, I don't think they're particularly rare but the demand FAR outpaces the supply and thus these take in extremely high prices. In XF you're looking at $1,500 to $2,000. In AU $2500 - $3500. In UNC (gem) the sky's the limit - an AU+ sold in August for over $10,000.

 

Specimens are a funny thing. World specimens aren't doing all that great right now, especially this one which is a color trial specimen. This isn't universally true but many auctions are seeing specimens at or below the lower estimate. This exact specimen note failed to sell in the NYINC auction this year with a lower estimate of $5000. So you can judge that for yourself - if you're talking about the specimen, by deduction, it would be less than $3,500, around the starting bid of that auction.

Thank you very much for your answer - Need information about issued banknotes
