    China People's Bank of China 50 Yuan 1949 Pick 829b S/M#C282-35 PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
    Impressive pack fresh originality and sharp corners are easily seen on this smaller denomination from the famed 1949 series. There were six totally different designs created and issued for this denomination, all of which are popular today. No finer graded examples have been sold in a public auction, making this a terrific opportunity to acquire an example that is one of the finest known. As inflation raged, smaller denominations became worthless and most were turned in or have been lost over time. Thankfully, this Uncirculated example has been saved to be enjoyed today.

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.
