    Incredibly Scarce $1000 Malayan Note

    Malaya Board of Commissioners of Currency $1000 1.1.1942 (1945) Pick 16.
    The 1942 Malayan issue included notes up to the $1000 denomination. Survivors are few considering how much buying power these notes had in the 1940s. The last example of this denomination to sell at auction was a nearly identical grade, PMG 35 Net, and realized more than $21,000 as part of an auction just a few months ago. There are some minor stains, an annotation and ink stamp, all part of a storied history of a very rare note. PMG Very Fine 30.


    這是1942年版高面額票的形式,以紫色為主調,右側是喬治六世的肖像,中央部分有像徵英式的獅頭水印。這面值的發行缺乏考慮到當時1940年代的購買力。我們在近期拍賣會上出售的另一枚近乎相同的等級,PMG 35 Net,實現了超過21,000美元的成交價格。這枚有一些小污漬,一個註釋,背面紅色加蓋,非常罕見的系列,具有歷史意義,藏家要把握機會競投。PMG Very Fine 30。
