Jamaica – Canadian Bank of Commerce at its Branch in Kingston Jamaica 1 Pound June 1, 1938 P-S156a, Charlton 75-26-02. PCGS Fine 15. A very rare Canadian Bank of Commerce branch note issued for use in Jamaica. This is another great world note find in the Newman Collection and should generate much interest. The Canadian Bank of Commerce notes are among the most beautiful ever conceived and executed. Printed by the Canadian Bank Note Co. with yellow and orange tint plates. Well-muscled Mercury, standing with his food on the globe, looks rather dapper as he sports his winged trilby; elegant Muses are on either side. On the brown back, the bank emblem in the center is flanked by Mercury, wearing more traditional headwear, and Ceres; their fingers touch just beneath the crown at the top. Issued notes are not priced in the SCWPM. There are no recent American price records located by us for issued examples. A similar note sold at a Dix Noonan Webb, London, sale a few years back brought the equivalent of about U.S. $7,000. Commonwealth note specialists will recognize the great opportunity presented here.
