    Finest Graded Example of This Scarce Denomination

    Japan Ministry of Finance 5 Yen ND (1872) Pick 6 JNDA 11-4 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 Net.
    An impressive example of this rarest denomination type. Interestingly, these vertical format notes were printed in Frankfurt, German States. The 5 Yen seems to be the rarest denomination of the series, which is seldom offered in any grade. A handsome series of notes that must be fully understood to be appreciated. In fact, there are similar looking banknotes series issued by the Japanese in their colonies: Korea, Taiwan, China, Kiau Chau, and Russia. This example, however, is a genuine example from the first series of 1872, and at the time of cataloging, remains the finest graded example in the PMG Population Report. Foreign substance is noted.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Japan and Territories


    極罕最高評鑒之日本明治通寶金五圓

    1872年大日本政府大藏省明治通寶金五圓。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 Net。
    日本明治維新變法時代所發行,從明治五年到三十二年,發行時間只有短短二十餘年。特別的是,這款垂直的明治通寶金五圓鈔票與其他面值鈔票不同,只曾在德國法蘭克福印製,相對其餘有在日本國內印刷的金壹圓及金二圓等鈔票,其印刷量最少,而其亦是該系列中最罕有的面值,任何等級均一票難求。在編製目錄時,這亦是PMG紀錄中等級最高的一枚。
    出自Yuri Solovey收藏系列
