Australia. ca. 1944-1945. (1/2) Pound, P-NL, issued banknote, uniface, left half. Fanning Island is one of the British Line Islands of the Gilbert & Ellice Island Colony, 1000 miles south of Hawaii, and was the relay station of the cable between Vancouver, BC (Canada) and Sydney (Australia). In 1942-1943, war conditions made it impossible to import stores and currency from Sydney, so there was a shortage of currency. Approximately 1000 notes numbered from 1 to 1000 were printed in Hawaii for use there. The notes were withdrawn in 1945 and all but a few were defaced by bisecting. The defaced halves were subsequently used as admission tickets to the movies by the Copra Plantation workers. Complete notes are extremely rare., Ch. Fine, annotation.
