    Korea First National Bank of Japan 5 Yen 1902 Pick 5as Specimen PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    A rare and desirable Specimen of this early 20th century type. Excellent original colors are easily noted on this type, which also features hole punched cancellations and red overprints. PMG mentions paper thinning, which is commonplace on Specimens, as many were adhered to cardstock for easy viewing by the recipient banks. At the time of cataloging, there are only four examples of this Specimen graded in the PMG Population Report. From the first series of Japanese imperial banknotes for Korea, and popular today among collectors.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Japan and Territories
