    1953 10 Yuan Specimen

    China People's Bank of China 10 Yuan 1953 Pick 870s S/M#C283-14 Specimen PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    A Specimen example of the key note from the second series of Renminbi. This short-lived denomination was introduced in 1957 and remained in circulation for only seven years before being withdrawn in 1964. Unlike the multitude of Specimen notes created in the first series of RMB, very few people had access to Specimen of the second series. As people became more familiar with the designs that were unified in the second series, these were only passed between printers and large banks. Specimen stamps are seen alongside the portrait of the male factory worker and female farmer along with all zero serial numbers. A minor restoration is mentioned by the third party grading company.

    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.
