    Montreal. PQ- Banks of the St. Lawrence 20; 50; 100; 500 Views Ad Note circa 1860s
    These are great advertising notes that play on the word "Banks" and they also advertise the Victoria Bridge, Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Toronto, Quebec, the White Mountains, and Montreal. The bridge was named for Queen Victoria and completed in December 1859. At that time, it was the longest bridge in the world. "GTR" is under the facsimile signatures and "G.T. Railway" is found on the back leading one to believe that the issuer of this note was the famed Grand Trunk Railway that operated in Canada and New England. The 50 Views note has staining in the upper left corner. We sold a different set of four of these of the same denominations for $299 on May 3, 2010. That set is not as nice as the current set as the 50 Views note had some staining. Choice About Uncirculated or better. (Total: 4 notes)
