A rare Trinidad and Tobago one dollar bill and 2 1/4 pence are selling together on Ebay for US$8000 (approx TT$54,400).

The bill went on sale on March 31st.

It goes under the heading, "RARE! TRINIDAD & TOBAGO 1 Dollar ND 1905-1926 P-1p Uniface Proof, and 2-1/4 pence".

The dollar was in circulation between the years 1905 and 1926.

There is no legal restriction on the sale and it's hardly likely to spring the amount of controversy generated when the country's highest national award, the Trinity Cross (it has been changed to the Order of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago) was placed on Ebay for sale.

That item was being offered for US$25,000 and was eventually purchased by the Ansa McAl Group of Companies and handed over to the State.

There has been no official offers at yet for the latest items.
