Thailand: Series 7 Special - 1 Baht Invasion notes
One Baht banknotes, printed by Thomas de la Rue, were meant to be used in territories occupied by the British forces after WWII . However, to solve its severe shortage of banknotes, the Thai government asked the British for help. These notes were overprinted with Thai inscripts, signature and serial number and then issued in 1946.
Pick 62Aa and 62Ab: 1 Baht (Click on above for larger image)
Differences between P62Aa and P62Ab lies in the Thai inscript "This notes is legal tender in accordance with the law"
P62Aa: “ธนบัตรเป็นเงินที่ชำระหนี้ได้ตามกฎหมาย” - note the word “ที่” (circled in green)
P62Ab: “ธนบัตรเป็นเงินชำระหนี้ได้ตามกฎหมาย” - note that the word “ที่” has been removed.
