    Perhaps Unique in Private Hands

    Montreal, PQ- The Exchange Bank of Canada $10 Oct. 1, 1872 Ch # 245-10-08a
    An excessively rare note which is perhaps unique in private hands, as the new Charlton reference indicates that only two examples of the $10 1872 note with the letter overprint are known, with one in institutional hands. This short lived bank issued notes for only the briefest moment, having started in business in 1872, suspended payments in 1879, and been declared insolvent by 1883. PMG Very Good 10, with a small stain at the top and an erasure, neither of which affect anything on a rarity of this magnitude.
