    Description

    Gem 1972 $5 R/S Prefix Test Note

    BC-48bT $5 1972 Test Note
    Approximately forty-five examples of this test note have survived according to Charlton with a pair in institutional collections. This leaves merely 43 examples for collectors out of an initial print run of 480,000 notes translating to slightly more than a 1 in 10,000 note survival rate. The Charlton guide values a note in Gem at $7,000 Canadian. Our estimate will start a bit back of that and may well prove conservative after the hammer falls. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
