    Likely Finest Known Ming Note

    China Empire Ming Dynasty 1 Kuan 1368-99 Pick AA10.
    The finest example we have handled so far and just one step shy from an Uncirculated designation. Nevertheless, as it is such a grandly sized note from over six centuries ago, printed on soft, mulberry bark based paper, and colored with charcoal as a security device, its state of preservation is simply amazing. All features are excellent as expected on this trophy example. PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ.


    迄今為止我們經手過當中品相最好的一枚。於相距現今近六個世紀的明朝洪武年間印製,大尺寸,墨水印壓在柔軟的桑樹皮紙上,採用木炭著色作防偽標誌,是任何國家中最早期發行的印鈔。令人讚嘆的卓越品相,正面"壹貫"漢字及十串錢幣圖案清晰可見,每項細節鮮明動人,紙身完整漂亮。PCGS Choice About New 58PPQ。
