Sudan new 20-pound variety reported

20 pounds (US$8.95), JUNE 2011. Like CBS B10/PNL, but 2-mm wide windowed security thread on front of the note.

Curiously, all denominations of the new designs issued on 24 July 2011 had the windowed thread on the back, apparently to help distinguish them from the preceding issues. However, it now appears that the bank is reversing course with the 5- and 20-pound notes. It remains to be seen if the thread will move to the front on the other denominations in this series.
