    Exceedingly Rare Northern 5000 Yuan from the 1951 Series

    China People's Bank of China 5000 Yuan 1951 Pick 857Ba S/M#C282 PMG Very Fine 20.
    Representing the ultimate degree of rarity, this high denomination note was issued in Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia, as Uyghur and Mongolian text is present on the back of this note. It is assumed that only small numbers of printed banknotes were actually issued, and that almost all extant examples were redeemed and destroyed beginning in 1955. For whatever reason, this denomination from the Outer Provinces is extremely rare today. We have offered this type in issued format only once previously, and that note, grading PCGS Good 4, netted $55,812 in 2014. This example is significantly better, and represents an important opportunity to acquire an extremely rare and culturally significant banknote. A tape repair and circulation are seen, although all color schemes and design elements are still fully visible and pleasing for the technical grade.

    1951年中國人民銀行伍仟圓(第一版人民幣)。PMG Very Fine 20。
    第一版人民幣系列的名譽品之一「蒙古包」!頂級稀有的人民幣珍品。此高面額人民幣在新疆和內蒙古發行,背面印有維吾爾文和蒙文。發行期短,估計當時只發行了極少數量,而大多也在1955年初注銷。不論原因如何,這款為邊疆省份印製的面額人民幣在今天成了鳳毛麟角的收藏珍品。敝司過住只曾經手拍賣過此品種一次。當時該枚獲評級為PCGS Good 4,並於2014年創造了$55,812美元的成交價。而此枚的品相明顯更佳,可見將會是一次極難得的機會將這枚極罕、文化意義深遠的人民幣收藏入手的機會。票上有釘書機孔修補痕跡和流通痕跡。但色調和所有設計元素仍然清晰可見,其品相使人愛不惜手。
