Thailand: Series 7 Special - 1 Baht "Kongtek" Banknote

This 1 Baht banknote, issued in 1942, was printed by the Royal Thai Survey Department using domestic materials. Hence the poor paper and print quality. Since these banknotes looked similar to fake notes burnt during Chinese funerals, they were called "Kongtek" (กงเต๊ก) notes.

They are now very difficult to find in good condition.
