I was given this bill by an old friend, gone now. He said his Uncle carried it around in his wallet forever...if I remember correctly, he said his Uncle had been in Service & war. Anyone know anything or recognize this bill? iT'S A Large bill & I keep it safely enclosed in a holder...Yes, I know..it has a lot of issues. Thanks!!!

Sorry but I'm striking out three times on this one. No currency or foreign money collecting and I can't read or write Chinese. I'm going to guess these were issued after the Japanese occupation because of the English on one side. The date must be on the reverse with the Chinese characters. Widh I could be more helpful but thanks for sharing.

This 10 dollar bill was printed for the Central Bank of China by the American Bank Note Company (small text on reverse, under Shangh'ai) as the 1928 version. In excellent shape, you can get them for about $5.

On the back is a portrait of Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) first president and founding father of the Republic of China.

Thanks Mark for clarifying and correcting my guess at time period for this note. All I could get from my G-search was on currency issued during the Japanese occupation. Interesting that the portrait is on the reverse which is opposite of most coins.
