21 May 2020

Today, May 21, 2020, I decided to look for any materials on banknote 5 Shillings 1972 Nigeria. And not useless :)

As it turned out, something on the banknote went unnoticed.

Firstly, on the tree trunk, which the workers saw, there is a marking - CE JА 22/55/1.

Secondly - the saw, itself, is very interesting.

These 2 questions - what meaning, exactly the marking on trunk, and the question about the brand (model) and manufacturer of the saw - I asked two museums of logging (yes, there are some). One is in the USA, the other is in Austria. I also sent a request to a large sawmill in the UK. We'll see or they will answer.

In the meantime, I did found one video on You tube. It’s about banknotes, by the way it is a very interesting video, the 1957 film, entitled "The twilight forest". From there I took 2 screenshots, that fit my description and, actually, engraving on banknote on 100%.
