    First Confirmed Merchants' Bank of Halifax $20 1898

    Halifax, NS- Merchants' Bank of Halifax $20 Jan. 1, 1898 Ch. # 465-20-18
    We thought this was a rare note, and a look at the Charlton reference revealed this comment: "no known issued notes." This is a comment that is associated with several different Charlton numbers from this bank that has gone through name changes and mergers through the years, eventually becoming the largest bank in Canada. We are happy to offer this $20 discovery piece with serial number A01659-A to the collecting community. It is a nice example for the grade of PMG Very Fine 20, sporting even circulation, ample margins, and bright paper. PMG did not find any complaints, and neither can we. Overall, a unique note with enough grade to make any collector proud.

    I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
