1937 Specimen note steals spotlight at anniversary sale

A rare Specimen 1937 Bank of Canada $1,000 banknote stole the spotlight at Vancouver’s All Nations Stamp and Coin 75th anniversary auction held on March 16.

According to Brian Grant Duff, the owner celebrating his 40-year milestone in the stamp and coin business in Vancouver and Toronto, coins and banknotes were the star attractions of both the online and live auction. The 1937 Specimen $1,000 note, one of just 48 known to exist, fetched an impressive $7,500.

Another notable item in the 225-lot sale was a 1948 silver dollar graded Mint-State-60, which commanded a price of $3,101. Notably, All Nations’ weekly auctions do not impose buyer’s premiums.
