Another highlight of the sale is a Beijing Banknote Printing Co. (CHN) 10 Yuan Test Note graded PMG 63 Choice Uncirculated. This note is extremely rare as very few test notes exist from the Beijing Banknote Printing Company, thus making it difficult for collectors to add to their collection. It has an estimated sales price of $35,000 to $45,000 USD.
