    Ceylon Chartered Mercantile Bank of India, London & China 10 Shillings ND (ca. 1864-69) Pick UNL Essay Back Proof PCGS About New 50.
    This simple yet historically important offering is quite rare and as such missing from many collections. Thanks to printer notations, this proof is identified as a working design for the Chartered Mercantile Bank of India, London, & China, to be issued in Ceylon in the mid 1860s. Any paper relic for 19th century Ceylon is a treasure, as examples are so few and far between. Some stains and edge roughness are mentioned for accuracy. Nonetheless, the example is rare and desirable.
