There will be over 400 lots with an estimated value of well over half a million dollars, and the majority of the lots start at 50 per cent of the estimate. Canadian and Asian banknotes dominate the sale with additional offering of World banknotes and Canadian Coins.
Lots range in estimated value anywhere from $30 to $30,000 so there is something for every collector. Multiple sale highlights have never been offered for sale publicly, while some examples are the finest known for their type.
Large even margins with sharp corners and strong colour entail this beautiful example. It holds a low serial number of 000725. A rare note with a small print quantity. Only 9 examples are known on PMG’s population report.
Chefoo (Yaintai today) was neighbouring Wahwie. Occupied british on a lease from 1898-1930 it became a centre from trade in the North. The city gained large growth leading to HSBC opening multiple offices.
