    Stunning Waterlow & Sons Color Trial from 1911

    Hong Kong Chartered Bank of India, Australia & China 10 Dollars 1.12.1911 Pick 42cts KNB24 Color Trial Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A visually stunning creation by famed British printer Waterlow & Sons, this note beautiful in every aspect and eminently desirable. The regularly issued banknote of this denomination features eight different dates, and was colored in a combination of mauve, orange, purple, brown, and black. The contrasts on this Color Trial are quite dramatic. This banknote was originally part of a presentation booklet prepared by the printer to showcase its talents to prospective clientele. Minor, but typical mount remnants are seen on the back of this otherwise choice Specimen. Hole punched cancellations of various sizes are seen, along with blue and red Waterlow & Sons overprinted cancellations. Beautiful and rare, therefore very desirable.


    1911年印度新金山中國渣打銀行拾員,試色樣票。PMG Choice Uncirculated 64。
    由英國著名印刷商華德路出品,整體設計極具吸引力,各方面設計都很精美,非常受歡迎的系列。該面額的定期發行鈔票有八個不同的日期,並以淡紫色,橙色,紫色,棕色和黑色混合而成,此試色樣票的對比非常引人注目。當時為向潛在客戶展示印刷商的才華,此鈔最初是展示小冊子內的一部分。 背面的少許黏貼痕跡限制了其取得更高的評分。 可以看到不同大小的打孔註銷,以及藍紅色的樣票加蓋字眼。 美麗而稀有,非常可取。
