Proof Note


Proofs were special impressions of bank notes to demonstrate to bank officials what their notes would look like, before the plates were put into production. They were normally printed on India paper, a thin, crisp paper that was superior for showing engraved detail. The signature blocks on proof were typically punch cancelled, so that it could not be transformed into a circulating note by adding signatures.
