    Elusive Yunnan Rupee

    Yunnan. Kuang-hsü Rupee ND (1907) XF45 PCGS, L&M-427. An extremely rare, somewhat crudely produced issue that was evidently modeled after the earlier Tibetan rupee type with the addition of YUN-NAN PROVINCE around the outer obverse legends and SILVER COIN in the reverse centers. While comparables are admittedly few, this is easily among finest we have encountered, with soft gray surfaces, no eye-catching marks and a strike that evenly portrays the design. The PCGS and NGC population reports seem to confirm this piece's elite status among the type, with no Mint State examples having been certified and only a single finer graded example having been certified by PCGS. As such, the specialist should certainly recognize the importance of the present offering, as many years could pass until a comparable opportunity comes again.

    獨一無二雲南光緒盧比

    1907年雲南光緒盧比。XF45 PCGS, 正面光緒皇頭像。極其罕見,模仿了早期的西藏盧比款式,正面外圈中加添英文"雲南省"字樣,反面中央有英文字樣"銀幣"。雖然可比較的數據很少,但相信這是我們遇到最好的一枚,柔和銀灰色表面,沒有眼見的印記,肖像壓印均勻。PCGS及NGC證實此幣為精品,從未以原廠狀態出現過,PCGS只評得一枚更好。收藏家定必能意識到此幣的重要性,未知何時再度出現。
