    DC-11-i $2 1887 A Series PMG Very Good 10.
    The decision to issue the 1887 $2 notes was likely motivated by the extensive counterfeiting of the Series 1878 issue. While the first 4,000,000 notes lacked a series designation, the final 600,000 were designated as Series A, creating a note which is rare today in all grades. According to a Canadian Paper Money Society survey in 2016, only 22 notes were recorded in the A series, including this example. Most recently, a heavily damaged note with rust and tape sailed past $1,750. This piece is quite nice, despite its amount of circulation and a small tear, the colors and major design elements remain quite attractive.
