    Iconic 1936 Central Bank of China 1 Yuan

    China Central Bank of China 1 Yuan 1936 Pick 209 S/M#C300-91 PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A truly outstanding example of this famous design printed by the Chung Hwa Book Company Limited. Deep color inks and excellent margins are seen on both sides of this National Currency issue. The last Pick 209 we offered, which was graded PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ, realized $55,200 in June 2019. Although this example is graded two points lower than the previous offering, we feel this will surpass our conservative estimate due to sheer scarcity of this 1936 issued note, especially in this Uncirculated grade.

    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff. Any clients who wish to take delivery of this item in the United States should be aware of this added charge, and consult their tax adviser with any questions.


    民國二十五年(1936)中央銀行壹圓。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64。
    一張由中華書局印製、設計出類拔萃的著名鈔票。深峻鮮明的墨印和置中的印刷在這張國幣鈔票上顯而易見。敝司在2019年6月經手拍賣一枚評分為PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ,成交價高達到55,200元。雖然此例的評分比上次稍低,但這張1936年「紅牌坊」鈔票極為珍罕,加上其未流通品相,敝司認為其成交價最後仍能超越較保守的估價。
