    DC-27 $5 1924
    This note, which bears a portrait of Queen Mary, the wife of King George V as its central vignette, was prepared in 1924 and dated May 26th (the Queen's birthday), but was not printed until 1931 due to a lack of demand for notes of this denomination. The notes were printed between October of 1931 and February of 1932, but the Finance Department delayed release of these notes until 1934, just before the introduction of the Bank of Canada notes and the withdrawal of Dominion notes. It is estimated that only about one-third of the 2,000,000 pieces were ever released for circulation, and the short time these notes actually circulated made survivors, as the Charlton catalogue notes, "very elusive." This piece has retained decent color and overall appearance, but there is a repair at the bottom that must be noted. Very Good.
