Haiphong, serial number O.00 000. Red, Vasco da Gama at left with a Polynesian allegorical figure with an oar at right, steamship and junk boats near the lower border, reverse red, Chinese text stating the note is payable in Tonkin and Annam. A magnificent large size note and appears to be the only note with the 12sp (Specimen Proof) designation and only one other 12s (Specimen) in PMGs population report. A fresh note with luxuriant colours showing minor handling this note in specimen proof format is about as rare as you can get for the entire French Indo China series. Issued notes are very occasionally available but are often in the lower grades and repaired, so this is a once in a blue moon opportunity to acquire this type in decent grade.
