This banknote was never issued and only known to exist and cataloged as a specimen prior to 2024, when two collectors travelled to Mauritania and acquired a quantity of this and another unissued design, a 1000 Ouguiya from 1981 (B111.5a).
The intaglio printing on this note is phenomenal. And it is quite large: roughly 4x7 inches.
