    Scarce BC-53aT 1979 $5 Test Note

    BC-53aT $5 1979 Test Note
    This Test Note, which is denoted by its serial number beginning with "33," is one of the great late day Canadian rarities. While an estimated 500,000 were produced, they were released without public comment, entering the normal channels of commerce and circulating without collector attention. As a result, only a literal handful are known in all grades today, with Uncirculated examples prohibitively scarce. This is the only new example and highest graded out of the five notes PCGS has graded. Six years have elapsed since we last sold the PMG 65 EPQ example in Tom Flynn's holdings for $3,737.50. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
