    Joint-Finest Certified CIIINA Dollar of 1912

    Republic Li Yuan-hung Dollar ND (1912) MS64 PCGS, Wuchang mint, KM-Y320.2, L&M-44A, Kann-638c, Chang-CH231, WS-0089C. Type with Li Yuan-hung wearing hat, H in CHINA without crossbar (CIIINA). An already incredibly elusive subvariety for the issue, elevated to an entirely new tier of rarity when found so pristinely preserved as this. For the sake of comparison, only 2 other representatives have reportedly been certified this highly across both major grading services, with none finer, most examples to have come to auction recently suffering from damage due to cleaning. Indeed, the last specimen we have been able to locate in comparable technical quality was the Norman Jacobs example, sold in 2008. As such, we can only anticipate the fervor with which this offering will be met as it crosses the auction block.

    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.


    1912年黎元洪像開國紀念幣壹圓。MS64 PCGS。
    武昌造幣厰。黎元洪戴帽版。背面銘文CHINA中的「H」字由兩個I組成,H字缺橫劃。系列中非常罕見的逸品,如此優秀的全品例子更是萬中無一。兩大評級公司中的,其評分穩坐首位,只有另外兩枚例子得分能與之匹敵。拍賣場上所見亦盡是有清洗痕跡的例子。唯此枚品相卓越。上一枚同級例子的拍賣記錄得追溯至2008年 諾曼雅格斯博士集藏中的例子,可見此品之稀罕超群,預計會掀起一輪熱烈競投。
