    Rare Manitoba Overprint

    Canada Dominion of Canada $1 1.7.1870 Pick 12 DC-2bii "Manitoba Overprint" PMG Good 6.
    An excessively rare note from the first Dominion of Canada issue, this "Payable at Toronto" variety features the vertically stamped overprint "Manitoba" to the right of the central vignette on the front. While this example is quite well circulated, the note remains fully intact. A true rarity and desirable in any condition, this piece is the sole graded example in the PMG census. As a rule, any United States banknote that is unique in private hands, despite being heavily circulated, would sail well into the five figure range at auction, perhaps even beyond. The Manitoba overprint makes it a distinctly special type for Canada, comparable to the DC-9c in terms of rarity.
