Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ
China Russo-Asiatic Bank 50 Dollars ND (1910) Pick S465. The finest graded example of this always popular Dragon note. These notes were introduced by the Russian interest bank when it decided to expand its operations. Former notes of the Tientsin Russo-Chinese Bank for 50 Hong Ping Hua Pao (a weight description, akin to troy for ounces) Taels were overprinted for more commonly circulating dollars, along with the new region of influence of Harbin. The bank later issued Ruble denominations from Harbin as it gained more influence in the region. The art on this large denomination is simply outstanding. The EPQ designation allows the collector to fully enjoy every nuance, from the sublet color shifts to the intaglio elements. As the issue size was not large for this interim series, this example may very well be the finest issued example in existence. PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ. From the Feeling Good CollectionHID07501242017
