This Week in Our New York Store

By Andrew Bowers, Store Manager & Buyer

Our last post was about an impressive New York Assay gold bar that was brought into our store New York City store and was consigned to our March Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo. This post shows another very interesting item that was just brought in and will be featured in our upcoming April Hong Kong auction. This Chinese Ming Dynasty 1 Kuan note dates back to the 14th century and is among the earliest of all collectible paper currency. It is printed on paper from mulberry bark. At approximately 14 by 9 inches, it is a wonder that it survived in such nice condition for so many centuries!

This will be joining a few other Ming notes ranging in conditions from Fine to high end Very Fine that will be offered in our April sale. We anticipate that these notes will attract a lot of attention, as it will be a great opportunity for those who have been searching for this highly sought-after type.
