    Extremely Rare $5 1908 Northern Crown Bank Note

    Winnipeg, MB- The Northern Crown Bank $5 July 2, 1908 Ch. # 545-10-02
    This short lived bank was established in 1905 as the Northern Bank, changing its title in 1908 when it amalgamated with the Crown Bank of Canada. It was absorbed by the Royal Bank of Canada in 1918, leaving little in the way of currency behind. We are extraordinarily fortunate to have two examples of the $5 1908 issue to offer tonight, which actually represents about 10% of the known survivors. The catalogue value is $12,000 in Extremely Fine, the highest grade that has a catalog price. PMG Extremely Fine 40.
