    Extremely Rare Malaya and British Borneo $1000 21.3.1953

    Malaya and British Borneo Board of Commissioners of Currency $1000 21.3.1953 Pick 6a.
    An extreme rarity that once resided in the famed Frank Goon Collection which became the basis for the reference, Banknotes of British Malaya. Issued notes of this Pick number are listed only as "rare" and without any values in the Krause reference. The Linzmayer reference also does not list any values in any grade. It is certainly the only example that we have ever seen and we are excited to bring it to the numismatic community. It grades PMG Very Fine 30 Net with rust, a paper pull, and minor discoloration. We would also consider the rust and paper pull minor. It is an attractive mid-grade piece and without a doubt destined for another great collection.
    Ex: Frank Goon, Dr. Chan Chin Cheung (plate note)


    令人讚嘆的系列,極為罕見,曾經於著名藏家的Frank Goon藏品中,也是 Dr. Chan Chin Cheung 著〈海峽殖民地紙幣〉書中原品,成為馬來亞紙幣的參考基礎。於克勞斯目錄中僅列為"罕見",而且並沒有任何參考價格。 Linzmayer參考文獻也沒有列出任何評級的參考價格。這無疑是我們見過的唯一一枚,能把它展現到各錢鈔愛好者當中,我們感到十分興奮。

    此枚細節精美,令人驚嘆,油墨立體鮮明,以紫色為設計,色彩亮麗,少許鏽跡及掀紙,仍然甚具吸引力,此流通鈔票能保存到如此狀態,非常難能可貴,定能成為藏家偉大藏品集的一員。 PMG Very Fine 30 Net。
    出自: Frank Goon; Dr. Chan Chin Cheung 書中原品

    Estimate: $45,000 - $50,000.
