Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ
China Russo-Asiatic Bank 100 Dollars ND (1910) Pick S466. The middle denomination of this overprint series, eclipsed only by the 500 Dollars note, and very elusive as an issued example. The original name as seen on the note is the Tientsin Sino-Russian Righteousness Victory Bank, which was changed to the Harbin Sino-Russian Righteousness Victory Bank, with a corresponding change to the English titles to the Russo-Asiatic Bank. Interestingly, only Chinese and English are seen on this example, with no Russian text. The multicolor underprint seen on this grandly sized example is the main draw of this note, with excellent dragons and a repeating background. This is the finest graded example in the PMG Census. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. From the Feeling Good CollectionHID07501242017
