    Dobie & Badgley 1790 1 Livres (30 Sols) Private Bank Merchant Note. Another very rare example of this Montreal, Canada issue that also remains in original condition, but cut into the design at left. Printed in black text with brown ink. The note's French text reads: "Montreal 7 Mai 1790, Livres 1.10 ancien cours. A vue, Nous payerons au Porteur du Prefent la Somme de Trente Sols ancien cours de la Province. No. 791. (signed:) Dobie & Badgley." Translated into English: 1 Livres ancient currency. On sight, we will pay to bearer of the present sum of 30 sols ancient currency of the Province." We are fortunate to offer two of these tough to acquire issues from these early entrepreneurs. Choice Crisp Uncirculated.
