    Splendid Almost Uncirculated Bamboo Dollar

    Kweichow. Republic "Bamboo" Dollar Year 38 (1949) AU50 NGC, KM-Y433a, L&M-612, Kann-758, Chang-CH132, WS-1112, Wenchao-1064 (rarity 3 stars). Variety with round window on pavilion. A considerable rarity for this highly collectible province whose silver coinage is among the most popular in the Republican series. Perhaps even more elusive than the famed Auto Dollar--this is indeed the first of the type we have offered--the Bamboo Dollar was produced amidst the turbulent years of the 1940s, standing as the final issue produced prior to the Communist victory in October of the same year. Though this emission is more "commonly" encountered in lesser states of preservation, with neither NGC or PCGS certifying any above AU58, the present coin seems to fly in the face of the lower grades often presumed for the type--both faces are flush with thick die polish lines, the iconic pavilion fully struck-up with only the most minor softness observable on the L in TLK. According to our research, this is among the finest specimens to have come to auction in recent years. A singular opportunity, and a coin that is sure to delight its future owner.

    NOTE: This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after September 1, 2019. Under the new US tariffs on Chinese goods, collector's items from China will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff. Any clients who wish to take delivery of this item in the United States should be aware of this added charge, and consult their tax adviser with any questions.

    極罕近未流通品「圓窗版竹子幣」

    民國三十八年(1949)貴州省造壹圓銀幣「竹子幣」。AU50 NGC。
    珍稀度三星。圓窗版別。民國銀幣系列中極具收藏價值的省份發行,比「汽車幣」更為珍罕,敝司首次經手拍賣。「竹子幣」發行於1940年代,當時谷正倫主政時鑄造,是共產黨勝利前民國政府發行的最後一款錢幣。此幣種例子NGC及PCGS均未給予超過AU58的評級,因此這一枚評分實屬上佳。正背面壓印深峻,經典樓閣圖樣鑄工精美,樓閣上「TLK」三字中「L」字打鑄略為輕柔。此幣是曾在拍賣會上亮相的同幣種例子中最為出色的一枚,品相評級皆無可匹敵,藏家萬勿錯過。
