Alberta 1936 $1 Prosperity Certificate banknote.

Post by BCNumismatics » Sat Sep 06, 2008 3:53 am

How many of you have ever seen one of those? Is it listed in any of the major banknote catalogues at all? I know full well that it isn't even listed,let alone,priced,in the 'Standard Catalog of World Paper Money' (or 'Pick',as it is commonly known as in the numismatic trade).

You can find one depicted here; http://www.leagueofnations.net in the Canadian banknote section.

This is the note Aidan's talking about. It was in an envelope with about 2 dozen world notes at my local auction a couple of years ago, and I was able to get the whole package for $15.

It look like it had, at one time, at least two stamps on the back (and possibly as many as five).

Aidan really seems to like this note. Maybe I'll will it to him after I'm gone :lol:

Sean,
That's a real bargain to get this note.I'm very interested in the history of this note,& the circumstances this was issued under.It's a shame that it isn't even listed anywhere though.

I found another one of these a few days ago in the dollar bin of a coin shop.
