The Chinese written on the blood chit informs that the holder was a foreigner who arrived in China to help war efforts, and urged military and civilian personnel to assist the holder.

Without a serial number on the lower left, why would this be authentic as opposed to a reproduction?

Gary Justus (above):
Thank you for raising this question because it prompted me to learn a lot more about Blood Chits. As a result of that exercise, I would have to answer your question by saying it could go either way, but I lean toward it being a reproduction (and for more reasons than the absent serial number). The caption has been adjusted to reflect this possibility and we thank you for asking your question that sent down a most interesting rabbit hole.
