In the first issue of 17-01-1947, there were some significant differences compared to all other banknotes of the same type:
1) On the front, above the “Medusa” state mark, there are two decrees: Ministerial Decree of 14 and 16 August 1947; the other issues only show the Ministerial Decree of 14 August 1947. The decree of 14 August authorizes the inclusion of the Medusa mark on the banknotes; the decree of 16 August includes the characteristics used only for the first issue.

2) The background colour of the engravings, figures and the inscription "LIRE CINQUEMILA", is black on the first issue banknotes; in subsequent issues the background colour is brown.
