Canada, Ottawa - Bank of Ottawa 1913 $5
This new addition to the Canadian census vaults to the top of the list of just 32 pieces known for the date and denomination. This is certainly one of the more beautiful chartered notes. The front has a sunburst of orange color set against a mostly green design. The central vignette shows a group of loggers in a partially cleared forest. The note is clearly original and never pressed. Where the vaguely mentioned "minor repair" is located is unclear and certainly shouldn't negatively affect your opinion of this beauty.
