    Description

    British Colony. George VI Cent 1941 MS64 Brown PCGS, KM24. A legendary 20th century issue for Hong Kong, and presently unsurpassed in grade at either NGC or PCGS, all but securing its status as one of the finest survivors on this incredibly elusive war-era issue. A near-gem without question, the surfaces retain impeccable originality, with satin-smooth texture in the fields and faded mint red around the protected areas. The strike also remains full, with the only attribute limiting the gem designation being a few small instances of contact on the obverse. As the single finest example graded, this coin that is sure to generate considerable excitement, as the pride of ownership will certainly be high with this one.

    1941年香港一仙。MS64 Brown PCGS。
    1941年一仙為香港十大罕品之一,這枚更擁有目前NGC或PCGS都無與倫比的絕佳評級。根據倫敦皇家造幣廠的紀錄,當時已鑄成五百萬枚一仙銅幣,並計劃分成五批運送到港流通使用。可是,運送期間途中,日軍成功侵進香港,其中一批運輸船繼而回航,先在南非卸貨,其後送回英國熔解重鑄其他幣。當年正處於第二次世界大戰,作為戰爭資源,日本將整個殖民地的錢幣搜刮一空,熔解,重鑄成子彈,供軍隊使用,當年新鑄一仙亦無一倖免。另外一批則在戰火間被軍火擊中,與運輸船一同沉歸海底永眠。因此,當年一仙雖然鑄造量多,但生不逢時,倖存者少之又少,使這枚稀少錢幣成為了今天最彌足珍貴的香港硬幣,深富歷史意義。

    這一枚無疑是現今狀況最好的存世珍品。近乎Gem級,幣面保留原廠狀態,絲緞表面,棕紅包漿帶有金黃色調。原始深打,細節尖銳無損,漂亮精緻。正面有輕微痕跡。這枚絕佳的香港一仙,必定引起一番激烈競投!
