The Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, $50, specimen, partially printed date '190_', orange borders on pale pink, bank coat of arms at upper centre, '$50' to its left and right, 'FIFTY' in blue underprint at centre, black printed manuscript at lower right, 4 hole punch cancellations,
(Pick 38 for type), PMG 40 Extremely Fine. Simply an extremely rare note. Both Pick and K.N.Boon list this type as September or October 1910 only but the partially printed date is '190_' which indicates the design was to be used before 1910. The illustration in K.N.Boon's reference book is partially printed '19(10)' and so this version is likely unique at the time of writing. Of the highest rarity
