    High Grade 1923 Hong Kong Five Dollars

    Hong Kong Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation $5 1.1.1923 Pick 166.
    A superior example of this always popular early design. Scenes of a city gate, workers, and junk are featured, juxtaposed by the brilliant orange underprints. The second HSBC building is featured on the back. All fine details in the intaglio and underprint features are clear and excellent, and can be closely inspected. This example may be the finest of this type, as the PMG Census only lists an About Uncirculated 55 example without original paper quality. PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
