    China Chartered Bank of India, Australia & China, Shanghai 50 Dollars 26.6.1916 Pick S186a S/M#Y11-32c PMG Fine 12.
    At the time of cataloging, this is the first and only example of this type graded in the PMG Population Report. We have not offered this type in the past. A cursory search yields no sales results for the this type in the last 15 years. The $50 denomination is notoriously challenging to obtain in many Chinese banknote series. A small serial number is seen on this amazing and very rare offering. Some ink and annotations are seen on the back and a piece of the side margin is missing. Nevertheless, all remaining details are still visible. Of the highest degree of rarity for an issued banknote, this is an exciting initial offering.

    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.
