I generally don't do much paper money, but this was a cool item that I found in my local coin shop.  I've found a few ebay listings related to this.  And in the catalog it looks like Hong Kong 55b.

Mine has a different hand signature on the front left center and a different marking in the upper right corner of the reverse.  I don't know if that affects value, but perhaps somebody can tell me whether this has any more unusual features than is typical for the type.  I bought it as a "Fine" grade.  It has a few pin holes. Thanks.  My learning curve is steep on the China paper money...
