The 1896 Cuba One Peso is part of the last issue printed under Spanish rule. The note is dated 15.5.1896, shows the Spanish Arms at center surrounded on each side by a “1”. The back is blue and in the center is a portrait of Queen Isabel II of Spain.
The note was issued with and without a red overprint of the word PLATA. Value range, depending on type and grade (VG-Unc): $1 -$50.
