1923 Canadian 25 Cent Shinplaster Bill                                SKU# 165624C

Don't miss out on this wonderful glimpse into the past and a part of Canada's monetary history with this twenty five cent bill from 1923! A interesting fact, historically these were called "Shinplasters", referring to the fractional currency that was first introduced to Canada in 1870. 25-cent notes were printed as a temporary solution to the shortage of Canadian coin. The issue became so popular with the public that it remained in circulation for many years. Shinplaster issues were done for the years 1900 and 1923. Whether you're a seasoned collector, just starting out or even just looking to possibly make some profit, this bill is definitely something you won't want to miss out on!
