    Molsons Bank $5 VF 20

    Montreal, PQ- Molsons Bank $5 July 3, 1899 Ch. # 490-22-16
    Our fortunate consignor acquired a third example of this rare note. This $5 has serial number 211509-A. The Registry shows that this is the first auction since 1989 to offer an example of this rare number. Amazingly, three unrecorded 1899 $5 examples are available here today. The Molsons Bank was acquired by the Bank of Montreal in 1925. The portrait on the right is of bank founder, William Molson. PMG Very Fine 20.
