Value of Old Banknotes from The Merchants Bank of Toronto, Canada

Old Money from The Merchants Bank of Toronto

The Merchants Bank was a spurious bank whose bank notes popped up around 1836 and 1837.  It traded under the assumption that a Merchants Bank probably should be in Toronto.  Of course no such institution existed.  Terry, Pelton and Co. Boston & Prov printed one, two, three, and five dollar bank notes.  A list of signors includes: Wm. Firman, J.G. Hunt, A.W.G. Rank, N. Wood, H. Hamblin, and Geo. R. Wait.  The notes only had a partially engraved date.  Observed dates include Dec 5 1836, May 4 1837, June 1 1837, June 14 1837, and July 4 1837.  Condition is always important when it comes to valuing paper money.  Most of these bank notes will trade for between $100 and $500.
