This is a recent acquisition. I think it is Chinese, but not 100% sure. Probably not a bank note, but maybe a bond receipt, heck (H*ll) note, other? I am not really sure. It is uniface and measures 60mm x 138mm. As usual, any thoughts regarding attribution, age, rarity, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

It is a Chinese Treasury Tax Note of some sort I believe it to be? Had to turn my head side ways to read the stamped Chinese calendar dated 1915, January 18th. (1926).

I'm not sure if that face value reads ten cents? Older style writing, I will need to study it further to be sure, don't have clue as to value.

As far as I can tell this is a Special Permit issued by the Ministry of Finance. As @macmercury writes the date is the 15th year of the Republic of China and the date on the document January 18th (28?) 1926. The value appears to be 10 Jiao (10 cents). I can make out the word for 'lucky' but don't know the context.

Thank you aiglet7 and macmercury for the information and expertise. Probably not a lot of these floating around, but probably not a lot of collector interest as well. Another oddity for the collection!
