    Spectacular HSBC Specimen from 1901

    Hong Kong Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp. 10 Dollars 1.1.1901 Pick 151s KNB39s Specimen PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    A fantastic and rare second denomination from Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp.'s series of 1900-1902, this note was part of the first series to use one of the "Big Three" printers in the U.K. The emission was short lived, and phased out of circulation beginning in 1905, when the Waterlow & Sons types began circulating. Of importance, this type is almost identical to the emissions used in other parts of mainland China, such as Shanghai, but is differentiated by its color schemes. We have not previously offered this type for Hong Kong, in any format. One signature is missing, along with serial numbers. An annotation at back is seen, along with a tastefully applied perforated cancellation. Pretty engravings by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Company are seen on both sides of this very rare denomination.


    1901年香港上海匯豐銀行拾圓樣票。PMG Choice Uncirculated 63。
    1900-1902年由香港上海匯豐銀行發行的此樣票珍罕無以復加,為當時英國「三巨頭」印刷商其中之一發行的首個系列,唯發行期甚短,到1905年華德路公司印刷的款式開始流通時,便停止了此發行。重要的是,發行的系列類型幾乎與中國大陸其他地區使用的相同,例如:上海。但顏色的使用則有所區別。我們之前從未經手過拍賣。 此枚缺少一個簽名以及序列號,背面有一處註解,有孔註銷。由巴布域韋堅遜公司所呈現的精美雕刻印刷,美麗非凡。
