Tag: devils face
As some of you may or may not know, in 1954 the Bank of Canada produced an issue of banknotes, from $1 to $1000, which came to be known as the Devil’s Head issue of banknotes. These bills featured the face of Queen Elizabeth II on the right hand side of the face. Ofcourse, the Queen herself was not the devil being addressed here. The Devil’s Head feature of this banknote is featured in her hair. Can you find it on the banknote below?
Well, if you weren’t able to find it, I have circled it here:
Regardless of the circling, pointing, and explaining, however, a lot of people still have a hard time seeing this Devil’s face. Probably something to do with pre-conceived notions. So I have decided to take the mystery out of the face altogether. To avoid any confusion and debate, I have colored in the face for all to see:
After this printing mishap(?) the Bank of Canada re-issued the series, with some modifications to the highlights of the Queen’s hair, and so the banknotes were fixed. Anyways, maybe I am bad at explaining things, but I hope this clears up the mystery for those who I tried to show in person, and who still left confused as to the face.
