    Stunning, Finest Graded 5 Yen

    Japan Greater Japan Imperial National Bank, Tokyo 5 Yen ND (1878) Pick 21 PMG Choice Very Fine 35 with JNDA Certification Folder.
    An absolutely stunning example of this very rare type, seldom seen even in the lowest of grades. This handsome Tokyo release is the finest graded example in the PMG Population Report at the time of cataloging. Crisp, lightly circulated paper is easily noted. Typical holes in the paper do not detract from the overall appearance for this splendid 19th century banknote. An elaborate hard cover certificate of authenticity is included.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Japan and Territories (Total: 2 items)
