Value of Old Banknotes from The Bank of Western Canada in Clifton

Old Money from The Bank of Western Canada in Clifton

This bank has a really interesting story.  It received its charter on May 4th 1859.  There was just one problem, the bank was controlled by a bar owner in New York named Paddock.  He conned a man in Clifton into acting as the bank’s president, despite the fact that Paddock was in control of the bank.  Obviously the government didn’t care for this arrangement and the bank was disolved on August 31st 1863.  Bank notes were of course printed.  Our guide below has pricing information.

Bank Notes from September 20th 1859:

The Bank of Western Canada printed one, two, four, and five dollar banks notes.  These are all fairly common.  However, if your bank note happens to be signed by Butler and McMicken instead of Butler and Richardson, then you have a real find that should be very valuable.  All bank notes have an engraved date of Sept. 20th, 1859.  Just pay attention to the signature – that is where the money lies.  Contact us if you need a free appraisal.
