    St. John Overprint $1 Provincial Note - One of Only Four Notes In Private Hands

    PC-2c $1 1866 PMG Choice Fine 15.
    ST. JOHN is overprinted on this Province of Canada $1 that was payable in Toronto. Portraits of Champlain and Cartier flank the central vignette that has a farmer and sailor standing by the Arms of the Province of Canada. There are five examples known, one of which is held in an institutional collection. While this note has seen its share of circulation it is still completely intact and attractive with good color. In our 2018 FUN World Currency Signature Auction we sold an example in similar, but impaired, condition for $12,000. Expect this problem-free example to sail past that result.
    From the Yuri Solovey Collection of Canada
