    Description

    DC-11 $2 1887
    This colorful note was issued to replace the Series of 1878 twos, likely because of that issue's rampant counterfeiting. The portraits are those of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne, continuing the tradition of portraying Governor's General, with the Marquis serving in that post from 1883 to 1888. This series is easily obtainable up to the Very Fine level, but very difficult to find in the truly higher grades. Very Fine-Extremely Fine, trimmed a bit off center.
