    Colorful Union Bank of Newfoundland $10

    St. Johns, NF- Union Bank of Newfoundland $10 May 1, 1889 Ch. # 750-16-06
    This bank's forty year existence was terminated due to a run on the bank precipitated by the failure of the Commercial Bank of Newfoundland in 1894.

Expect this rarity to easily reach and perhaps well exceed...
