THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE PIECE ONLY. WHICH IS SHOWN ABOVE. READ ITEM DESCRIPTION FIRST. Classified as type 281 RS in China’s Foreign Debt 1865 1982 by Wilhelm Kuhlman. Obviously less have survived today and probably only very few of which have survived in pristine condition. These RS bonds are very rare and highly collectible comparing to their Regular Issue (serial numbered) counterpart which, is in fact one of the most common Chinese bonds despite of being currently way overpriced due to speculations, historically there were over 220,000 pieces of Regular bonds issued in 1913 and 1937 and most of them are still outstanding meaning there are large numbers of these Regular bonds left today, so educate yourself first before paying top dollar for those extremely common bonds. Reserve Stock specimens on the other hand are and will always be rare and usually highly prized for their rarity. Whlhelm Kuhlman quoted these RS bonds (281 RS) in his authoritative guide book (China’s Foreign Debt 1865 – 1982, published in 1983) with a valuation 3 times higher than the Regular issues (280 and 281), for reference view the last photo which is taken from the page 81 of the book. This bond is in uncirculated condition with full coupon sheet, paper is extremely crisp and fresh without ANY discolorations or stains, the bond has great edges and sharp corners (as pictured) and is free from any intentional folds, creases or tears. There is a horizontal early bank flicking mark near the bottom edge on obverse (paper on next page is unaffected, exact same marks are found on several bonds that I have offered in past), other than that the bond is pretty much marks free. Keep in mind that this is an uncirculated bond with very large size (51cm X 36.7cm), for this type of rare bond this is as good as it gets , truly remarkable condition considering it is over 100 years old. Price is reasonable too for what it is. This item is (life-time) genuine guaranteed. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
