Neat article on a printing plate from 1893.

Wow - had a close look at it and it's just amazing.


The denomination is supposedly a 10 yang and the largest denomination that was issued back then was 5 yang which is essentially a crown / dollar coin. Didn't even resemble anything like the Chinese or Japanese banknotes at that time. I would like to know what the reverse would have looked like.


Thanks for posting this link Dave .
