    Near-Gem 1953 10 Yuan

    China Peoples Republic of China 10 Yuan 1953 Pick 870.
    A lovely, original 1953 10 Yuan note. The large format and iconic vignette add to this note's lore. Despite the fact that these notes represented an enormous sum of money for the time, most are still found in mid-grade ranges. In the last few years, only two other fully uncirculated notes have made auction appearances, a PMG 65 EPQ in 2012 and a PCGSBG 65 OPQ in 2016 that realized $92,000 and $68,000 respectively. While this note doesn't quite reach the Gem grade, it has all the eye appeal of a true Gem with incredible colors and nicely centered design details earning it a PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 grade. With unequaled demand for this trophy note, we would not be surprised if our estimate here today is easily surpassed.


    由於當時強制回收,以及人民沒有妥善保存鈔票的概念,導致存世票極為稀少,能達到高評分的更是萬中無一!這枚墨水色彩明亮,設計、壓花精緻細貳,極富吸引力。評級為 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 ,近年來能如此接近Gem級的同款更是難能可貴!
    2012年和2016年曾出現過一枚PMG 65 EPQ和PCGSBG 65 OPQ,分別以$9,2000及$68,000美元拍出。相信這炙手可熱的一枚定必受到眾位藏家注目,引起一場熱烈競投!
