Stack’s Bowers Galleries will be offering several interesting banknotes at the New York International Numismatic Convention from 10th to 12th 2019 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. A rare 1870 Two Dollar note graded PMG VG-10 will be offered at an estimated value of $5,000 to $7,000.
The design found on this 2 Dollar Canadian note is rare to find in any grade. The obverse features General Wolfe, General Montcalm, an arched text reading “Dominion of Canada” with a vignette depicting an Indian Chief and a 4-4-0 steam train in the background. The lower side has a beautiful 2-TWO-2 green-coloured protector. The reverse depicts 2 counters and the texts PAYABLE AT, MONTREAL. The note is in great condition and is heavily circulated. Two such notes have a similar grading while two others are graded finer at a Fine 15 and Very Fine 20 grade.
Canadian banknotes like rare 1935 pieces and the 1907 Imperial Bank $50 Specimen from Collection of Dr. James Eustace Bizzell are also going to be offered. Several interesting Brazilian and Asian Banknotes are also up for auction. A 1916 Straits Settlements 100 Dollar note and 1925 date are some of the highlights.
