    Simply Beautiful Presentation Pair for the 1922 $50

    China Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corporation, Peking 50 Dollars 1.1.1922 Pick S342cts1; S342cts2 Front and Back Color Trial Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 (2).
    Waterlow & Sons created this outstanding and very rare uniface set representing the 50 Dollar denomination for the Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corporation's Peking branch. To date, this denomination is only known in prototype format, which makes this an important opportunity to acquire this design from Peking. Hole punched cancellations, red overprints, and olive green ink confirm Specimen status on each side. Minor toning is seen, but that is to be expected after the century that has passed since this Color Trial was printed. This is only the third example we have offered. (Total: 2 notes)


    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.

    美觀漂亮的一對1922年伍拾圓「水牛圖」

    1922年香港上海匯豐銀行伍拾圓,北京地名,正背單面試色樣票。PMG Choice Uncirculated 63(2張)。
    華德路父子公司為匯豐銀行北京分行印製了這對優秀而罕見的伍拾圓單面試色樣票。此面額只知存有原型鈔票,故是次入手這對有北京地名鈔票的機會實在難得。正背面的注銷孔、紅色加蓋和橄欖綠色墨印證實了其樣票身份。鈔票輕微發黃,但考慮到這對試色票已問世超過一世紀,實屬正常。這是敝司第三次經手拍賣此品種的例子。
