    High Denomination 50 Taels

    China Board of Revenue 50 Taels 1854 (Yr. 4) Pick A13b PMG Choice Fine 15 Net.
    The highest denomination of the Taels issue. Though this note represented an extraordinary amount of purchasing power at the time and was not expected to be commonly circulated, the amount of teller's marks on the back indicates that this example saw great use between banks and cash houses. The grading company mentions a restoration on this example which adds to the overall eye appeal on this rare denomination.


    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 15% import tariff. Any clients who wish to take delivery of this item in the United States should be aware of this added charge, and consult their tax adviser with any questions

    高面值伍拾兩

    咸豐四年(1854年)戶部官票伍拾兩。PMG Choice Fine 15 Net。
    此票在以兩作單位的紙鈔中面值最高。一般而言,手持如此大面額的鈔票等於擁有高購買力,紙鈔不會隨意流通。然而此票背面記有多項註腳,可見此鈔曾輾轉於各銀行之間。評級公司評註此票上有修復痕跡,令此面值罕見的紙鈔更為誘人。
