    YUKON Overprint

    Toronto, ON- Canadian Bank of Commerce $5 January 2, 1892 Ch. # 75-14-04d Yukon Overprint
    Few words are more apt to describe the rarity of this note, other than "Yukon." This note is one of the greatest rarities of Canadian chartered bank note history, and integral to the development of the Canadian frontier. The Yukon Territory, bordering Alaska, was the entry point from Canada of the Klondike Gold Rush. Similar to the situation in San Francisco, the sudden boom caused a shortage of circulating currency, and banknotes such as this one changed hands frequently. Tonight's offering is a pleasing mid-grade example that has managed to avoid the myriad problems usually seen on these historic Canadian artifacts. It is further enhanced by bearing an overprint that is the less often green color which remains quite bold. A great Canadian rarity fit for the finest of collections. PMG Very Fine 20.
