    Old Man and Temple 1000 Dong Specimen

    South Vietnam National Bank of Viet Nam 1000 Dong ND (1955-56) Pick 4As Specimen PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    One of the 20th century's most enduring designs, which happens to exist on a banknote that ultimately went unissued. The banknote process, from the design stage, through to print, all the way to delivery, can take multiple years. During the mid-1950s, The Indochina War was finally concluded, and the Geneva accords split Vietnam in two on July 21st, 1954. Chief of State Bao Dai was overthrown by his Prime Minister, Ngo Dinh Diem, on October 26, 1955. However, both Dai and Diem were largely fond of France, and were widely targeted during their tumultuous time in power. As such, this French-style note became unnecessary, and is therefore only available as a Proof or Specimen. Specifically, this watermarked variety is an overprinted and numbered Specimen. "GIAY MAU" is overprinted tastefully on both sides. All details are still clearly visible on this pack fresh and utterly spectacular example. No finer graded Specimen or Proof has been offered in public auction. Not to be missed, as this example is as rare as it is visually appealing.

    老人與寺廟圖1000盾樣票

    1955-56年越南國家銀行1000盾樣票。PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ。
    20世紀最經典的設計之一,卻出現於最終沒有被發行的紙鈔上。僅出現於試樣票或樣票上,才能一窺的大幅面、高面額設計品種。一張鈔票由設計、印刷到運輸可能花上數年。1950年代中期,第一次法屬印支半島戰爭結束。1954年7月21日,根據日内瓦會議,越南分成南北越。翌年10月26日,首相吳廷琰在選舉勝出,就任總統,保大帝推出政治舞臺。兩人均鍾愛法國,政治動蕩之際經常因而飽受抨擊。因此之故,這款法式鈔票恐惹是非,國家銀行決定只印製樣票和試樣票。值得一提的是,此帶水印的樣票是帶加蓋和樣票序號。這枚極為賞心悅目的鈔票之所有細節,在簇新的封裝下依舊清晰可見。這是出現在公開拍賣中,試印票及樣票中評分最高者,絕對不容錯過。此例的品相美觀程度和珍稀度同樣突出。
