Meanwhile, a China, Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corp. 1922 10 Dollars - Chefoo graded PMG 55 About Uncirculated also has an estimate of CA$20,000 to CA$25,000 (about $15,300 to $19,100 USD). Chefoo’s adjacency to the main British trading port spurred such large capital flows through the small city that HSBC established multiple offices and created a special series of Chefoo note designs. The note has the low serial number of 00725, with only 9 other examples recorded in the PMG Population Report.
