Culion Leper Colony
The Culion Leper Colony was administered by the Commonwealth Bureau of Health. Normal monthly expenditure was about 25,000 Pesos, most of which was obtained directly from Manila. The outbreak of the war effectively severed source of supply. Funds on hand where nearly exhausted in meeting the December 1941 payroll. The special Culion coinage was reissued, but was only a stop gap measure. In late January 1942 at a public meeting a proposal was adopted to issue local script. A Currency Committee was formed consisting of Dr. H. W. Wade, Medical Director of the Leonard Wood Memorial, as Chairman, with Acting Chief Pathologist Jose O. Nolasco and Disbursing Officer Julio Lisboa as members. The script was mimeographed on pink paper for centavo denominations and blue paper for Peso denominations. The Bureau of Health stamping was applied on the back in blue. Notes where dipped in paraffin for durability. Even so the script was accepted with reluctance, and an appeal was made to President Quezon who telegraphed on February 9th, 1942 "If necessary issue notes for payment of salaries and other expenses, these notes will be redeemed by Government later" A total of 144,485 Pesos was printed, but only 92,130 Pesos placed in circulation. When Japanese Military script arrived at the end of July 1942, use of Culion script was officially prohibited.

NOTE: Some note issues are most often available with slight evidence of very light counting folds which do not "break" the paper. A banknote that has less than perfect corners is considered nearly uncirculated. Many collectors and dealers refer to such notes as AU-UNC.
ABOUT UNCIRCULATED (AU): A virtually perfect note, with some minor handling. May show very slight evidence of bank counting folds at a corner or one light fold through the center, but not both. An AU note can not be creased, a crease being a hard fold which has usually "broken" the surface of the note. Paper is clean and bright with original sheen. Corners are not rounded.
EXTREMELY FINE (EF/XF): A very attractive note, with light handling. May have a maximum of three light folds or one strong crease. Paper is clean and bright with original sheen. Corners may show only the slightest evidence of rounding. There may also be the slightest sign of wear where a fold meets the edge.
VERY FINE (VF): An attractive note, but with more evidence of handling and wear. May have several folds both vertically and horizontally. Paper may have minimal dirt, or possible color smudging. Paper itself is still relatively Crisp and floppy. There are no tears into the border area, although the edges do show slight wear. Corners also show Wear but not full rounding.
FINE (F): A note which shows considerable circulation, with many folds, creases and wrinkling. Paper is not excessively dirty but may have some softness. Edges may show much handling, with minor tears in the border area. Tears may not extend into the design. There will be no center hole because of excessive folding. Colors are clear but not very bright. A staple hole or two would not be considered unusual wear in a Fine F note. Overall appearance is still on the desirable side.
VERY GOOD (VG): A well-used note, abused but still intact. Corners may have much wear and rounding, tiny nicks, tears may extend into the design, some discoloration may be present, staining may have occurred, and a small hole may sometimes be seen at center from excessive folding. Staple holes and pinholes are usually present, and the note itself is quite limp but NO pieces of the note can be missing. A note in VG condition may still have an overall not unattractive appearance.
GOOD (G): A well-worn and heavily used note. Normal damage from prolonged circulation will include strong multiple folds and creases, stains, pinholes and/or staple holes, dirt, discoloration, edge tears, center hole, rounded corners and an overall unattractive appearance. No large pieces of the note may be missing. Graffiti is commonly seen on notes in G condition.
FAIR (FR): A totally limp, dirty and very well used note. Larger pieces may be half torn off or missing besides the defects mentioned under the Good category. Tears will be larger, obscured portions of the note will be bigger.
POOR (PR): A "rag" with severe damage because of wear, staining, pieces missing, graffiti, larger holes. May have tape holding pieces of the note together. Trimming may have taken place to remove rough edges. A Poor note is Desirable only as a "filler" or when such a note is the only one known of that particular issue
