Here is another attractive Brazillian note, featuring sailing ships in harbour.
Its design is somewhat reminiscent of Irish notes printed by Perkins Bacon in the same era.

Some of the French colonial banknotes are very attractive.
this 5 Franc note is from St Pierre et Miquelon, a French overseas territory near Canada.
