Themes of this banknote
(1) View of the city of Recife, Pernambuco, in the first half of the 19th century.
(a) In the foreground the entrance to the port of Recife, with the Farol da Barra, which was built by Dom João VI and which was inaugurated in 1822; (b) In the background we have the Fort of São Francisco da Barra or Fort of Picão, among other names, originally built at the end of the 16th century or the beginning of the 17th century, having undergone several reforms and reconstructions, it was finally demolished in 1910, in the name of “progress”. From this view, only the Lighthouse and the ruins of the foundations of the Fort remain.
Perkins' print was probably inspired by a painting or print made between 1822 and 1834. Unfortunately, it is not located.
(2) Coat of Arms of the Empire of Brazil (left) and Reference to the Decree of June 1, 1833 (right).
Without print and numbered by hand.
Example of banknote (200$000) with two cuts (left and right).
In July 1836, banknotes of 50, 100, 200 and 500 mil-réis were stolen. As the Law stipulated, the Treasury had to replace them with new types, a fact that did not happen, due to the fact that they had not been prepared. Thus, it was decided to cut the right margin (opposite to the one attached to the bead) for later comparison, as was done with the other margin. After the theft of the Treasury, the service of issuing and collecting banknotes began to be carried out by Caixa de Amortização (Amortization Fund).
Example of a security sticker whose cut must coincide with the corresponding cut on the bead from which it was detached.
