Our upcoming Fall Hong Kong will feature many rare and collectible notes, with one standout of the sale being a 50 Tales Remainder from the Bank of Hindustan, China & Japan Limited in a PMG Very Fine 20 grade.
Printed by B&C. Shanghai. Remainder. No. 903. Without signatures and date. Notes for this bank were printed in 1863 and are incredibly difficult to obtain today. All denominations are rare from this issuer and are typically only found in remainder form. This will be the first time we have ever offered a note from this bank, and it is sure to be hotly contested once the bidding begins.
The Bank of Hindustan, China & Japan Limited was in operation from 1863 to 1866. The bank failed, like many others, during the international Panic of 1866. This short operating period leaves collectors with few surviving examples, and we are confident that even the most advanced collections of Chinese paper money are missing notes from this issuer.
