It predates by five years the earliest surviving issued note of the Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corporation dated 1867, and only one (Chartered) Mercantile note dated 1858 precedes it.*Together with the note is an original document, partly printed and part handwritten, which reads:[Printed:] "Chartered Bank of India, Australia, and China. MEMO. Hong Kong,[Manuscript:] "24th Mar 1881."[Manuscript:] "$5 Note No. 6090. This note is not marked off the Branch Register as Cancelled, because the space is filled up by the date (19/2/75) of a note returned to London. Unless the correct number of note cancelled on 19/2/75 be obtained the register must remain as it is."*The second original document reads:[Manuscript:] "Hongkong $5 note, No. 6090, part of 5000 Nos 5000/10,000, shipped 1st Nov 1862. Two other notes of same numbers have been supplied but with prefix letters AM & FS respty."(Pick 21a), PMG 10 Very Good (Stamp Cancelled). One of only two notes known (the other being dated 1865) and thus ultra rare, as well as of exceptional importance.
