    Description

    China Provincial Kwangtung Currency Bureau 1 Dollar Year 31 (1905) Pick S2388
    These notes were contracted to the Japanese Imperial Printing Bureau on behalf of the Provincial Currency Bureau. Though there were national banknotes at that time, they were denominated in Cash and Taels. Due to capital city of Canton's importance as an international port at that time, and the early adoption of silver Mexican dollars as a trading medium, these dollar denominated notes were introduced to facilitate commerce. PCGS Apparent Fine 15, tape repaired and stains.
