    Exceptionally Scarce Bank of Acadia $4

    Liverpool, NS- The Bank of Acadia $4 Dec. 2, 1872 Ch. # 5-10-02
    We quote here from the Charlton reference: "Established in 1872 in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, The Bank of Acadia was in existence for only three months and twenty-six days, making it the shortest-lived bank in Canadian history. It re-opened for a few days after its failure to redeem some of its notes, but with the exception of the government, note holders not reimbursed at this time received nothing." Fine-Very Fine, a rare and attractive example considerably closer to the higher of the split grades than the lower.
    From The Thomas M. Flynn Collection
