Quebec City Card MoneyQuebec City Card Money 12 Livres 17XX
A scarce issue to be sure, with this example cut in the fashion of 12 Livres emissions and carrying signatures of the governor and intendant similar to those seen on 1735 issues as illustrated in the 2010 Charlton Catalog of Canadian Government Paper Money. The date, which has faded substantially, prominently displays a 17 with the last two digits difficult to discern. The government seal remains strong and there is a notch at top center which gives the appearance this rare note was used as a key chain. The last example of card money to cross the auction block was an example in 2008 which realized $18,000 although it was in better condition. Very Good with a couple of splits.
Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000.
