Auction: CSS106 - A choice selection of Hong Kong Banknote rarities from the 'Chan' collection
Lot: 36

Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, an uniface obverse photograph for a proposed issue of $1, no date (early 1900's?), coat of arms at centre, armoured maiden with spear at left, the design looks as if it might be a proposed design for the 1906 issue, and this is markedly different to the issued note,
(Pick not listed), PMG 62 uncirculated. Early photographs were used as records of hand painted designs and each are unique. Very attractive and orante, important serious collectors wishing to obtain a part of banknote history

1900年代香港上海匯豐銀行壹圓正面設計稿檔案照片,無日期,PMG 62,很有可能是1906年壹圓未經採納之設計,此類早期照片被用作手繪設計的記錄,每張均獨一無二,別具收藏價值和歷史意義
