The Royal Bank of Canada Jan 2nd 1909 $20 - CH-630-10-04-22

This is likely the rarest Canadian note we are offering for sale tonight. Right now we see only about a dozen pieces that are known to exist. The catalog value is $4,500 in fine and $7,500 in VF. This particular example faces up really nicely with its light blue color and lion vignette. The back has four sticky spots on the corners from where this note was removed from a frame. Of course, removing the glue residue is an easy and quick fix for the next owner.
