    Finest Graded Japanese Imperial Rarity

    Japan Greater Japan Imperial Government Note 5 Yen 1880 (ND 1882) Pick 18 JNDA 11-18 PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    Tied for the finest grade in the PMG Population Report at the time of cataloging, this incredibly choice example is seldom seen in any grade. In fact, this is only the sixth instance where this Pick number has crossed the auction block since 2013. Simply stunning, fresh and vivid in appearance, and extremely desirable as such. High value 19th century types are seldom encountered in Choice Very Fine condition. An important opportunity to acquire a banknote that may not be seen in equal or better grade in quite some time.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Japan and Territories


    1880年(ND 1882)大日本帝國政府紙幣伍圓,PMG Choice Very Fine 35。
    截至編目時,此枚是PMG數量報告中同系列的最高評分者。這款珍貴的紙鈔不論任何品相狀態均十分少見。事實上,這是敝司自2013年起所提供的第六例。其保存狀態令人震撼,圖案生動,極之誘人。一般高面額的19世紀鈔票難以獲得Choice Very Fine以上的等級,而這枚獲得最高評分,實在不能錯過。
    出自Yuri Solovey收藏系列
