    Excessively Rare Bank of New Brunswick Issued 1904 $5

    St. John, NB- Bank of New Brunswick $5 2.1.1904 Ch.# 515-18-04 PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    A stunning and excessively rare issued note that is the first of this number that we have ever offered. It is currently the lone example in the PMG Population Report and "Good Color" is rightfully mentioned on the third party back label. Our close scrutiny further finds that this is a superlative note for the grade. It is also one of only eight that are available to collectors with four others being locked away in institutional collections according to the Canadian Paper Money Society Note Registry Volume 1 2019. Of this documented dozen, our current offering is tied with one other as the nicest of this number and it is part of the National Currency Collection. For comparison purposes, we had on this bank a 1903 $10 Ch.# 515-18-08 in PMG 40 EPQ realize $26,400 last April. Many will desire this beautiful $5 we offer tonight, but only one determined bidder will be able to claim it once the gavel falls.
