    Handsome Hankow Issue from 1908

    China Shun Yee Savings Bank, Hankow 1 Dollar 1908 Pick UNL S/M#H133-1a PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    Deep color schemes and unusually outstanding paper are seen on this rarely seen note. The overall paper quality is far superior to most Imperial Chinese notes seen today. We have not offered this variety since 2017, with this example being far superior. The manuscript serial number shows how few of these notes were actually issued. Although the Shun Yee Savings Bank is not included in the Standard Catalog, it is nonetheless a desirable issuer from the last years of the Qing Dynasty.

    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.
