The first specimen was lot 8032 in Ponterio sale 150 (Los Angeles, August 2009), where it sold for $661.25. The catalog description noted, "BRITISH CARIBBEAN TERRITORIES. 2 Dollars, 5.1.1953. P-8a. A very scarce note that is one of the keys to the 1953 Issue notes and shows the rare watermark of a sailing ship instead of the frequently seen Queen Elizabeth variety. This note is an attractive original piece with even circulation and bright color throughout. Finding higher-grade pieces of this date can be tough and many collectors will settle for attractive mid-grade examples such as this. VERY FINE."
