    Handsome Printer's Essay for 19th Century 100 Piastres

    French Indochina Banque de l'Indo-Chine 100 Dollars = 100 Piastres 21.1.1875 (ND c.1877-93) Pick 23pe "Printer's Essay" PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    As rare as it is interesting, this Printer's Essay is a beautiful representation of the eventual banknote, which bears dates from the 1870s through the 1890s. Very few issued examples are known to exist, which adds desirability to this example, which was created on blueish, watermarked paper. All design elements are clearly visible. The issued examples, based on this design, have manuscript signatures and a variety of dates, both which are lacking here. Of the utmost rarity, and eminently desirable as such.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Banque de l'Indochine


    精美十九世紀「壹百元」印鈔厰設計稿

    1877-93年東方匯理銀行壹百元,印鈔厰設計稿。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ。
    此精美的印鈔厰設計稿為1870至90年代發行鈔的樣本,稀罕而有趣。同類樣票幾乎絕跡,令此票更爲吸引。此票以一張青藍色的水印紙作爲底,上面所有設計元素精緻清晰。及後發行的所有樣票均印有簽名及不同日期,唯獨此票并未印上相關資料。這款稀世珍品讓人愛不釋手。
