Well, here are my Five cents "worth"..............
The King George VI series has 2 distinct Jawi script variation under the King's portrait vignette.
Could our Jawi learned collectors care to explain the meanings of the Jawi variations?
Type I Type II
The Type I Jawi variety:
As of date there has been no reported design varieties for Type I.
The Type II Jawi variety :
The common variety,
The rare variety,
The scarce variety.
This is a minor error note which I bought from an American dealer way back in the early 1980s.The error is in the lack of printing for the Jawi scripts and was only discovered many years later.
Close-up of the error:
All the notes are signed H. Weisberg - the signature of Hyman Weisberg, B.A., Financial Secretary of the Straits Settlements and Chairman of the Commissioners of currency, Malaya.

The following five cents notes are forgeries and I have seen some of them being passed off as the real thing and also on eBay.
As for most forgeries the printing are blurry and design patterns are not sharp.
Please examine them carefully before buying, be more careful if the seller does not allow you to remove the note from the plastic holder.
