    Manitoba Overprint 1870 $1 - Likely Unique in Private Hands

    DC-2bii $1 1.7.1870 "Manitoba Stamp" 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, making it comparable to the DC-9c in terms of rarity. That note, also offered here today, realized nearly $25000 just a few short years ago.
