LONDON. 5% Bond of £100, unsold stock. brown, blue, black. #23000. No 23000. Rather discoloured and slightly damaged borders. The bonds of this issue (KUL 90 - Imperial Railways of North China) were numbered up to 23000, but numbers 22998, 22999 and 23000 were found late 2006, ready for sale but never sold, in the archives ofa British bank, and sold as one lot in a London auction. In effect they acted as reserve stock. This is final one of those 3 pieces (No. 23000). With full coupon sheet. An unique opportunity for the advanced collector of Chinese bonds.
