Jordan. Pair of two specimen 1 Dinar notes, P-18s, both with crossover prefix _ _ but one with signature 15 and the other with signature 16. The note with signature 16 bears an inscription on the arch of the Dome of the Rock on the back, while the note with signature 15 has the inscription removed. This was because upon discovery in circulation of the notes with the "inscription" in the 1970s, rumors circulated that it is a Hebrew inscription. The Jordanian government was quick to act and they requested that the printer amend the design to remove this "inscription" (which really is not an inscription despite the resemblance to Hebrew script). Both notes bear TDLR oval overprints, which is quite rare for 1970s notes onwards, as the specimens generally available in the market do not have these overprints. Gem Uncirculated. Also included are copies of 3 articles published in the IBNS journal and unveiling more of the story behind these unusual notes.
