    Stunning Highest Denomination Rarity

    Hong Kong Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corp. 500 Dollars 1.7.1925 Pick 170s KNB52/58S Specimen PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
    An incredible banknote, unobtainable in issued form and therefore eminently desirable as a Specimen. This beautiful type, designed and printed by Waterlow & Sons, was the highest denomination of the series, and carried enormous buying power during its time in circulation. According to HSBC records, all 1925 dated banknotes have been redeemed. At the time of cataloging, this beautiful Specimen is the second finest graded in the PMG Population Report. This example is the first we have offered and widely sought after as such. Customary overprints and hole punched cancellations are seen. Another fantastic Waterlow & Sons engraving and once again, beautiful.


    1925年香港上海匯豐銀行伍佰圓樣票。PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ。
    一張珍罕得令人難以置信的鈔票「大水牛」,此系列的發行票根本無法獲得,因此樣票更加令人垂涎。由「華德路公司」 設計和印刷,為該系列最高面額紙鈔,在流通期間具有巨大的購買能力。根據匯豐銀行的記錄,所有1925年註日期的鈔票都已兌現。及至圖錄編撰時,此鈔經PMG評得第二最高分,同時亦為我們首次經手拍賣,必定會受到廣泛的追捧。
