    Fantastic 19th Century Type

    Hong Kong Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp. 5 Dollars 1.3.1898 Pick 139 KNB29 PMG Very Fine 30.
    An iconic design from this famed issuer, very rarely encountered and desirable in any grade. A small, 19th century population, and a pair of issuers hint that print totals were small. Additionally, the sands of time prevented all but a scant few examples from surviving to be enjoyed today. This example is fresh to the market and should stir excitement due to its bold colors and crisp paper. Pinholes and mount remnants are seen on this otherwise very attractive banknote. Any 19th century Hong Kong banknote is a prize. This example is no exception, and only the third example of this catalog number to be offered in auction in the past decade. Interesting, historic, and very rare.


    1898年香港上海匯豐銀行伍圓。 PMG Very Fine 30。
    著名發鈔銀行的標誌性設計,任何等級的評分都十分罕見。十九世紀人口較低,因此發行數量也相對地少,時間的流逝使幾乎沒有幾張可保存至今。此鈔對市場來說絕對是充滿新鮮感的,大膽的用色和卓越紙質令人振奮。 帶輕微針孔和殘留物。任何十九世紀的香港紙幣都可謂寥若晨星,這枚也不例外,在過去十年中,僅在拍賣會上出現過三次。 有趣且歷史悠久,一票難覓!
