    Iconic Waterlow & Sons Engraving

    Hong Kong Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp. 50 Dollars 1.1.1923 Pick 168s KNB56S Specimen PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    A triumph of banknote design and printing is displayed on this iconic, large format denomination from Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp. Simply, this is one of the finest mergings of artwork and commerce in world paper money. Regretfully, we see these all too infrequently today, as most examples of this design have been redeemed or lost over the years. All design elements, from the bust of Apollo to the second HSBC headquarters, are on full display. A minor restoration is seen to the top right corner, along with customary hole punched cancellations, and a red overprint. This is the first we have offered, and one of only seven Specimens graded in the PMG Population Report at the time of cataloging. An exciting opportunity to acquire a seriously rare design that is lauded by enthusiasts worldwide.


    1923年香港上海匯豐銀行伍拾圓樣票。PMG Choice About Unc 58。
    香港紙鈔珍品「菠蘿頭」!香港上海匯豐銀行這個標誌性的大幅面鈔票上充分展示著鈔票設計和印刷的成功。簡單地說,這是世界紙幣中藝術品和商業的最佳融合之一。 遺憾的是,由於這些設計的大多數示例已被贖回或丟失,因此今天我們很少看到這些。 從阿波羅頭像到第二個匯豐銀行總部的所有設計元素都得到了充分展示。 此枚右上角有一小處修復痕跡,輔以常見的紅字樣票加蓋及註銷孔。 這是我們首次經手的一張,及至圖錄編撰時,為PMG所評的七張樣票之一。 此鈔受到全球收藏家的贊譽,本次呈現在我們的拍賣會上絕對是一個激動人心的機會,若要入手這張空前絕後的極罕鈔票,是次拍賣不容錯過!
