CANADA. Dominion of Canada. 5 Dollars, 1924. DC-27. PCGS Currency Very Fine 25.
This issue, featuring a formal portrait of Queen Mary, offers an interesting history. Although the plates were prepared in 1924, and the note is dated May 26th in honor of the Queen's birthday, there was so little need for Dominion $5 bills that printing for this issue did not commence until 1931. When finally printed, they were stored until 1934, when they finally entered circulation, just in time to be replaced by the 1935 Bank of Canada issue, which marked the withdrawal of the Dominion notes. This mid-level VF retains its gorgeous blue color throughout the note, with only some toning, mostly on the margins, to report.
PCGS Currency Very Fine 25.
