    1935 Banque Du Canada French Text $50

    BC-14 $50 1935.
    King George VI, who on this note was still Prince Albert, Duke of York, is featured on this outstanding example in French text of the first issue of the Bank of Canada. An allegorical figure of modern inventions is featured on the back. All French notes were printed with the F prefix, which according to a letter from the deputy governor of the Bank of Canada at that time, were subject to mutilation by the English speaking population. This French text version had a run of only 32,500 notes. An amazing, pack fresh example with excellent heavy embossing. PCGS Choice New 63PPQ.

    Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000.
