Unofficial Overprints

 
 
                                   
Overprints on 32b.  Note shows four different 1996 Independence overprints and stamps..  
 
          Starting in the 1980's the BSP gave consent for different government departments and non-government bodies to overprint stocks of demontrised notes remaining in the bank's vault, (exccept for the 1995 Papal Visit overprints which used the then current 2nd Redesigned series notes). 
        Many of these notes were issued in an unofficial collaboration with the Philippine Postal Service, displaying postage stamps cancelled "First Day of Issue" on either the obverse or reverse, or both. Unlike these, issues like the 2008 P100 UP overprint with stamps, is a BSP/Philippine Post joint issue so it is listed in my lists.
        These unofficial overprints were not applied with any uniformmity, so it's safe to say that very few (if any) are the same. Some examples of these notes show overprints for more than one different "anniversaries" commemorated.

      Most overprinted notes were P1 - P10, as you could get more notes for your money at the BSP.
 The only P20's sighted were the 1993 FEMA and the 1995 Papal Visit. I've sighted nothing higher than P20
