1892 Yukon Overprint $5Toronto, ON- The Canadian Bank of Commerce $5 January 2, 1892 Ch # 75-14-04c 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. We last sold a Fine 12 example in 2011 for $12,650. With almost all examples in this condition, this note is expected to do just as well. PMG Very Good 8 Net, rust.
Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000.
