Thailand: Series 7 Special - 1000 Baht Banknote

In 1943 demand of low value notes increased due to presence of Japanese occupying forces. To prevent further shortage of banknotes, high value of 1000 Baht notes were issued.

Pick 60 & 61: 1000 Baht. Note the red stamp of Bank of Thailand on right of reverse. This stamp was used only for high value notes to detect counterfeits.

Pick 60 (red and yellow shades) was issued in August 1943
Pick 61 (brown and yellow shades) was issued in March 1944
They were taken out of circulation in 1945.
