    Superb Middle Denomination Specimen Rarity

    China Deutsch-Asiatische Bank, Hankow 25 Dollars 1.3.1907 Pick S264s S/M#T101-4a Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    As beautiful as it is rare, this large format middle denomination represents the only example graded in the PMG Population Report at the time of cataloging. This ultra-scarce denomination is unconfirmed as an issued banknote, which leaves a Specimen as the best chance to acquire this simply stunning rarity. This German issuer rivaled the large British banks in Southeast Asia, and opened offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and India. The Deutsch-Asiatische Bank was granted issuing privileges in China in 1906, and through its branches, began introducing banknotes in 1907. Fully issued examples are extremely rare, and remainders and Specimens are likewise challenging to find. Denominated in dollars and taels, this design circulated until the end of World War I. The 25 Dollars denomination is excessively rare and this problem-free Specimen represents the best opportunity to date to acquire this stunning banknote. Red overprints are seen on both sides, as well as two perforated cancellations. Simply fantastic in all regards.


    1907年德華銀行貳拾伍圓樣票,漢口地名。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64。
    漢口地名十分稀缺,我們首次呈現。截至編撰圖錄之時,根據PMG數量報告,此一大型中等面值的紙鈔為同款式中唯一一張獲評級,美麗而矜貴。此面值的鈔票稀罕夢幻,到底有否正式發行鈔現存仍不得而知,若想收藏這款華美堂皇的鈔票,此枚為不二之選。當時此一德國銀行與英資同行在東南亞競爭,分別於香港、新加坡、日本及印度開設分行。德華銀行在1906年取得在中國發鈔的特權,並與1907年在各分行開始發鈔。正式發行鈔票極為罕有,論珍罕,庫存票及樣票亦不遑多讓。 此系列鈔票有「兩」及「圓」兩種面值,流通至一戰完結。貳拾伍圓鈔票特別稀有,此票無懈可擊,若希望入手這張驚艷樣票,本次拍賣為至今最佳機會。兩面各有印朱印及兩個註銷孔。品相完美,非比尋常。
