Description

CHINA. Kweichow. 50 Cents, Year 38 (1949). NGC AU-58.

EXTREMELY RARE 1949 Greek Border Kweichow 50 Cent

Ex: Irving Goodman Collection; Ex: Eduard Kann Collection


L&M-614 (plate coin); K-758I (this coin); Y-432 (plate coin); WS-1114 (plate coin); Top Chinese Coins-pg. 129 (plate coin); Wenchao-pg. 668#1066 rarity five stars (plate coin). This issue is described in Kann as scarce, citing this example in his own collection. An EXTREMELY RARE and important subsidiary coinage dated Year 38 (1949), considered to be the fractional counterpart of the famous “Bamboo Dollar”. Struck from well executed dies bearing a Greek border on both sides. The reverse bearing the large denomination “50” is encircled by thirty-two small “50’s” in a circular border between the denomination and the Greek border. Effectively the reverse of the coin is denominated thirty-three times. This coin is the highest graded by either PCGS or NGC. This piece shows exquisite detail in addition to its extreme rarity, exhibiting a subtle and lovely slate hued tone with some mossy highlights. Truly a magnificent coin that will enhance the new collection it calls home, and elevating it to a legendary status.
Of the utmost rarity and importance with an impeccable lineage of pedigrees.

Estimate: $125,000.00 - $175,000.00

民國卅八年貴州省造半圓銀幣。 

珍稀卅八年貴州省造半圓銀幣樣

古德曼 / 耿愛德舊藏


珍稀度☆☆☆☆☆。L&M 614書圖原品。據耿愛德的描述,他收藏的這枚幣非常稀罕,是民國卅八年(1949年)日期極其珍貴的,原本預定作為著名“竹子幣”的輔幣。雕刻精美,兩面的外圈為雲雷紋。背面為面值“50”,在雲雷紋及面值間並有32個細小的“50”環繞,也就是說它的面值出現33次。這是無論PCGS或NGC所評鑑的最高等級。細節極為精緻且其極罕見,有漂流的鐵灰色調包漿及一些亮點。納入集藏中,可以提升至新的境界。除了極度珍稀及具重要性外,傳承有序是無可比擬的因素。
