    This lot contains a neat starter collection of Canadian Depression Scrip. These certificates were a type of unemployment benefit (Allocation de Chomage) that was issued from 1932-40 through various cities throughout Quebec. That explains why the English language is completely absent on them. Dates are rubber stamped on the back. These are discussed on page 86 of the twenty-fourth edition of A Charlton Standard Catalogue Canadian Government Paper Money. These notes are also mentioned in Standard Catalog of Depression Scrip in the United States by Ralph A. Mitchell and Neil Shafer, pages 294-6. Very Good-Fine or better with some examples having edge tears and/or edge notches and each piece cancelled in purple with "ANNULE.". (Total: 10 notes)

    Estimate: $400 - $600.
