    Highest Denomination Korean Rarity

    Korea First National Bank of Japan 10 Yen 1902 Pick 6as K&C49.1 / DK26-1 Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A beautiful and extremely rare Specimen, seldom seen in any degree of preservation. At the time of cataloging, there are only three examples of the Specimen for Pick 6 graded in the PMG Population Report. This is the highest denomination of the series and scarce in any grade, and in any format. Hole punched cancellations and red overprints on both sides confirm Specimen status. They depict Shibusawa no Eiichi on the front, as he was the founder of the First National Bank. These issues were created in response to a need for new currency as Japanese interests on the peninsula continued to solidify. Only a few of these types are known to have survived. The first we have offered.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Japan and Territories


    1902年株式會社第一銀行拾圓樣票。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64。
    一枚漂亮而極罕之樣票,不論任何品相皆十分珍罕。截至編目時,在PMG數量報告中,Pick 6的樣票僅出現三枚。這枚是此系列中最高面額的一枚,不論品相和形式皆少見。註銷孔和紅色加蓋確定其樣票身份。正面帶第一銀行創辦人澀澤榮一肖像。此系列鈔票是為了應付日本在朝鮮半島鞏固勢力之貨幣需求而發行。此品種已知只有數枚流傳至今。此例是我們經手拍賣的首例。
