BRITISH CARIBBEAN CUHIRLECY D^ARD.
--gr
A rumour has been circulated in the
Colony to the effect that, as the result
of some competition, Banks are buying
the "security thread" which forms part
of British Caribbean Currency Notes and
a number of these "security threads"
have been withdrawn from currency
notes and presented to Banks in the be-
lief that they would be paid for.
The public is hereby warned that
Banks are not paying for "security
threads" withdrawn from currency notes
and further that it is an offence to with-
draw the "security thread" or otherwise
mutilate or deface a currency note. In
the meantime traders should accept
notes which have been tampered with in
this way and present them to Barclays
Bank (D.C.O.) without delay so that
they may be withdrawn from circulation
as soon as possible.
