    China Asia Banking Corporation 20; 50 Dollars 1918 Pick S114s5 S/M#Y35; S115s3 S/M#Y35-4e Two Specimens PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ; About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
    A selection from one of few American capitalized banks operating in the Republic of China. Heavy and excellent embossing is seen on both examples. Unfortunately for the bank, it closed soon after the design of these notes due to heavy losses in foreign exchange speculation. Only Specimens are known for these high denominations. Two POCs are present on both examples.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Chinese Foreign Banks & Hong Kong (Total: 2 notes)


    1918年美商友華銀行貳拾圓,伍拾圓樣票,天津地名,一組兩張。PMG Choice About Unc 58 EPQ;About Uncirculated 55 EPQ。
    選自在民國時期在華經營的少數美國資本銀行之一。兩張都有厚重和優質的壓花。不幸的是,由於外匯投機的重大損失,該銀在這些鈔票設計出現後很快就關閉了。只有樣票以這些高面額而聞名。兩張都各有兩個註銷孔。
    出自Yuri Solovey收藏系列
