    The Hudsons Bay Company is the oldest and largest company in Canadian history. At its height, HBC covered nearly 3,000,000 square miles, as they were at the forefront of the exploration and settlement of northern and western Canada. Despite these facts, paper money reminders of this great company are extremely elusive. This note was signed and dated May 4, 1820 in London, shipped to York Factory, and countersigned and dated June 7, 1821. York Factory was the sprawling complex located on Hudson Bay, that was in use by HBC from 1684 to 1957. This example is Crisp Uncirculated with three pre-printing paper crinkles and removed from a ledger book. Certainly, a piece every Canadian collector wishes he or she could own.

    This is why I like purchasing from Heritage, you are so customer oriented and with your size and my meager purchases it always amazes me how quickly you respond.
