AUC21 Lot No : 788
Chile, 1 Escudo, 1964 SPECIMEN, Serial No 000000 A11, overstamped 48. Pick # 136s. Uncirculated. Rare. The engraving on banknote is made after this image of Frigate Captain Arturo Prat Chacón. Agustín Arturo Prat Chacón (April 3, 1848 - May 21, 1879) was a Chilean lawyer and navy officer. He was killed shortly after boarding the Peruvian armored monitor Huáscar at the Naval Battle of Iquique after the ship under his command, the Esmeralda, was rammed by the Peruvian monitor. Prat, as captain of the Esmeralda, was the first to board the Huáscar. During his career, Prat had taken part in several major naval engagements, including battles at Papudo (a coastal city north of Valparaíso) (1865), and at the Battle of Abtao (1866), at the islet of Abtao across from Chiloé Island. Following his death, his name became a rallying cry for Chilean forces, and Arturo Prat has since been considered a national hero. Estimate
