    One of Only Nine Notes in Private Hands

    DC-8h $1 1.6.1878 PMG Very Good 10.
    A scarcer "Payable at Halifax" type from this early issue. The lettered border is seen on this Plate B example featuring the Countess of Dufferin (wife of the Governor General) on the front and the Great Seal of Canada along with the receiver general office of Halifax on the back. A total of 11 examples are enumerated in the census, two of which are part of the National Currency Collection. Just one other example of this scarce issue has been offered in our auctions, and that was well over a decade ago. Evenly circulated and residing in a problem free holder.
