    Malaya $10,000 Pick 17cts

    Malaya Board of Commissioners of Currency $10,000 ND (1942) Pick 17cts Color Trial Specimen.
    A Bradbury Wilkinson Color Trial Specimen with purple being the main color on the face and the back is printed in gray ink. The remaining originality of this piece includes both embossing and white paper. This is the highest denomination of the issue. We see that no issued notes of Pick 17 have turned up as confirmation is still needed by the Krause reference. Also, the capture of Singapore by Japanese forces in February 1942 was a limiting factor, if not a total suspension of issuance for this design. This example grades PMG About Uncirculated 53 EPQ.


    英國倫敦巴布域偉堅遜印刷公司的試色樣票,正面主色為紫色,印有喬治六世肖像,背面則以灰色印刷。保留有壓紋和紙張呈白色。10000元為該系列中最高面值。對於此設計最終有沒有發行成流通票,仍需作出確認,但我們相信此票並沒有發行成流通票。而其中一個暫停發行這設計的原因是日本軍隊於1942年2月佔領了新加坡。PMG About Uncirculated 53 EPQ。

    Estimate: $40,000 - $50,000.
