Lot: 225

The Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, $100, specimen, partially printed date '190_', grey borders on purple-pink, bank coat of arms at upper centre, '$100' to its left and right, '100' in violet underprint at centre, black printed manuscript at lower right, 4 hole punch cancellations, a rare W.W. Sprague and Co. printing,
(Pick 39 for type), PMG 40 Extremely Fine. Likely unique. Both Pick and K.N.Boon list this type issued on 8.9.1910 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. We sold the $50 of the same series in March 2019 for HKD$780,000 inclusive of the buyer's premium and this is a higher denomination note and untrimmed
