    Molson's Bank Major $5 Rarity

    Montreal, PQ- Molsons Bank $5 Jan. 3, 1893 Ch. # 490-22-12
    The Charlton reference informs us that this number is in an institutional collection only. The Canadian Paper Money Society Note Registry 2013, pinpoints on page 219 that note as residing in the National Currency Collection. Now previously unreported serial number 173778-B bursts onto the numismatic scene. It is also a much nicer example than the piece in the National Currency Collection. The current offering carries the third party grade of PMG Very Fine 20 very well. Minor rust is cited on the third party label. It is very minor indeed, while the rarity is major.
