1. Bond of 500 Germ. Reichsmark. 2. 1000 Germ. Reichsmark. 3. 5000 Germ. Reichsmark. At the end of the 19th century, Chinese resentment of foreign grew into the 'Boxer Rebellion'. When this was put down by European armies, China was compelled to pay compensation to the countries whose assets in China had been destroyed. Russia was one of those countries and was to receive some £19.000.000 over 20 years. The Russian government issued a loan, to be serviced from those Chinese payments. The loan consisted of three different bond issues (i.e. different face values). This lot includes all three of them. Colourful pieces.
