Another 30 banknotes from the collection of long-time Canadian numismatist Harry Eisenhauer are slated to cross the block this January during the 65th annual Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Convention.
Among the top highlights are a pair of notes from the Bank of Canada’s 1935 Series that are each expected to bring upwards of $30,000 US. They’ll be offered during Heritage Auctions’ FUN World Paper Money Signature Auction, which begins today and runs until Jan. 13.
The first is a $20 note (BC-9a) in Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) Choice Uncirculated-64 and with a serial number reading “A000008.” No other examples graded finer than Choice Uncirculated have sold at a public auction, according to auctioneers.
“As the first banknote to feature a portrait of the eventual Queen Elizabeth II, this type appeals to collectors across multiple spectrums.”
Another highlight of the five-session sale is a $25 note (BC-11) – Canada’s first commemorative issue – in PMG Gem Uncirculated-65 EPQ (exceptional paper quality).
“One of the most iconic banknotes of the 20th century, and widely sought after in any or all grades,” it is the second-highest graded example known.
