    Description

    DC-8b $1 1878.
    Charlton indicates that a plausible reason for preparing a new issue of $1 and $2 notes so soon after the introduction of the Dominion notes was the counterfeiting of the Toronto $1 notes as the catalogue notes, "If the purpose of the 1878 issue was to improve security, it failed badly. The ones were raised to resemble $4 notes and the $2 notes were extensively counterfeited." This note, payable at Toronto, comes from the first issue with the scalloped borders. PMG Choice Fine 15 Net, with the bottom right corner tip replaced.


    Estimate: $500 - $700.
