Recently an auction in China had a deal closed for these set of 1954-1958 Economic Construction Bond specimen set. The deal was closed at RMB24,640, approximately RM12,000.
Though the items auctioned off are not banknotes in particular, but as my theme of collection is on specimen...so this has eventually attracted my attention. According to some collectors, these bond specimens sets are now very hard to get in a booklet set, what more in a complete 1954-1958 set.
This is the second series of bond that the current chinese government had issued ever since the Communist Party took over in 1949, The first one being issued in 1950..
