    Japanese Depression Emergency Issue Specimen

    Japan Bank of Japan 200 Yen ND (1927) Pick 37Bs Specimen PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    The second best of four examples offered in this auction, which represents an important opportunity for four lucky bidders to acquire this extremely rare type. Hastily issued during the height of the Japanese economic disaster that peaked in 1927. Issued examples were redeemed within a few days of issue, which leaves Specimens as the next best way to acquire this very rare design. Problem free example with clean paper, red overprints, and two hole punched cancellations are noted. Although three examples are offered in this auction, this is nevertheless an incredibly rare Specimen that rarely presents itself in the marketplace. An important opportunity.
