Trinidad & Tobago (1943)

Hello, I'm still new to the currency collecting and am trying to identify and valuate a bunch of notes I recently picked up. This on is a 1 dollar note from Trinidad and Tobago dated January 1, 1943. Some online searches showed that this note in fair condition was $15.00 while the same site was selling another note in fair condition for $80.00. The site did not list any pictures. I was assuming that the notes offered were the same, but judging by the price difference I'm now guessing that there must be variations.

 

Can anyone identify my note, as well as give an approximate value range with condition listed? Thanks.

Your note is Fine (F) grade. atsnotes listed one for $15 for Fine (F) grade and $80 for Extremely Fine + (XF+) grade

 

Pick 5c 1 $ 1943 ship,island . . . . F 15.00, XF+ 80.00

Nutmegcollector, I see what you are showing, but look right below that on Pick 5d

5d 1 $ 1943 ship,island . . . . . . . . F 80.00

 

 

this is what is confusing me. One note is saying Fine is 15.00 the other note is saying Fine is 80.00. Is 5c and 5d item number references for that particular dealer, or are they something from a standardized currency catalog? I'm just confused that there are two different prices for Fine....that is if they are both referring to the same note. Any clarification is appreciated. Thanks.

The pick numbers are from the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money (SCWPM) by Krause Publications. 5c and 5d refer to different dates of issue:

5c: 1.5.1942, 1.1.1943

5d: 1.7.1948

 

The date 1943 shown on the atsnotes for 5d is a typo error. According to SCWPM, the relative prices for 5c and 5d in Fine grade are about the same. So I suspect the atsnotes 5d price shown is in error too, probably for XF grade.
