Value of Old Banknotes from The Stadacona Bank of Quebec City, Canada

Old Money from The Stadacona Bank of Quebec City

This bank only existed from 1872 to 1879.  A depression in the general Canadian economy combined with a slump in timber resulted in the bank’s closing.  Both shareholders and creditors were paid in full.  Fortunately for collectors, The Stadacona Bank did have time to issue bank notes.  Four, five, six, and ten dollar bills were printed by The British American Bank Note Co. Montreal for use by The Stadacona Bank.  Each note is dated as 2nd April 1874 and signed by A. Joseph.  G. Holt and Wm. R. Dean also signed some notes, but never together.  An engraved portrait of Mr. Joseph is also seen on each note.  Four, five, and ten dollar bills could have red overprints that read as “E”, “L”, “P”, “St. Sauveur”, “E”, or “Fraserville”.  All of these notes are rare enough to the point that the overprint doesn’t really affect the value.  Please contact us if you need help valuing your bank note.
