    Description

    DC-8e-i $1 1878
    As Charlton relates, the ostensible reason for issuing this series was to combat counterfeiting of the 1870 Toronto $1 notes. What resulted was even more extensive counterfeiting, with the 1878 Ones raised to Fours and the 1878 Twos plagued by spurious copies. This issue also started the tradition of picturing the Governor General and his wife on Dominion notes, with the $1 bearing the portrait of the Countess of Dufferin and the $2 the Earl of Dufferin, the Governor General of Canada from 1872 to 1878. This attractive PMG graded example is payable in Montreal. PMG Extremely Fine 40, a rare note in this grade.
