    China 1902 Banque de l'Indo-Chine 10 Piastres

    China Banque de l'Indo-Chine 10 Piastres = $10 15.1.1902 Pick S440B.
    Though the Banque de l'Indo-Chine was a prolific issuer in Asia, it was largely limited to French interests in Southeast Asia. In Shanghai, the French bank could not compete with the capital base of British merchant banks such as the HSBC. Because of this, notes were not as well recognized, and as a result the issuance was small. Though the bank continued to operate in Shanghai until 1955, its note issuances ceased in the early Republic era. Due to the good standing of the bank, most notes were redeemed, leaving any examples issued for any Chinese cities rare today. This example retains the excellent red color and bold stamp signature of the cashier. PCGS Gold Shield Grading Very Good 8 Details, major repair, peeled.


    雖然東方匯理銀行是家在亞洲發行頗多的銀行,但法國資本的影響主要發揮在在東南亞。在上海,法國銀行便無法與例如匯豐等英國商業銀行相抗衡。因此,他們的鈔票也不獲認受,因此發行量也很低。雖然銀行一直在上海經營到1955年,其紙幣發行業務在民國早年便已停止。由於絕大部分紙幣被召回,其為任何中國城市發行的紙幣到今天都極為罕見。這一枚保存了極佳的紅色油墨,出納員簽名印章十分醒目。主體有修補和拉扯痕跡。獲評PCGS Gold Shield Grading Very Good 8 Details。
