    Description

    China People's Bank 50,000 Yuan 1950 Pick 855
    The highest denomination of this 1950 issue, it seems that this note did not circulate widely. Though a few folds and some handling account for its assigned technical grade, its eye appeal rivals much higher graded notes. A vignette of a combine harvester is utilized on the front, and foundry workers can be seen on the back. No doubt a nod to the skill and achievement of workers across the country, the optimism and pride in the People's Republic of China is readily evident in this note's design. PCGS Very Fine 35.
