Value of Old Banknotes from The Commercial Bank of Windsor, Canada

Old Money from The Commercial Bank of Windsor

The Commercial Bank of Windsor doesn’t have an especially interesting back story.  Everything went as planned.  It opened in 1864 and it ultimately had seven branches when it was bought out by The Union Bank of Halifax in 1902.  It issued three types of bank notes.  See below for details.

Bank Notes from the 1860s:

The American Bank Note Co. N.Y. and Boston printed twenty dollar bank notes for The Commercial Bank of Windsor.  These exist as proofs and specimens today (we are showing a specimen below).  These aren’t especially valuable.  However, the train vignette certainly ups the appeal to collectors.

Bank Notes from 1870:

The Commercial Bank of Windsor issued four, five, and ten dollar bills dated as September 1st 1870 or Sept. 1st 1870.  The British American Bank Note Co. Montreal & Ottawa handled the printing duties.  These only exist as proofs today.

Bank Notes from 1871 & 1898:

These two years are grouped together because the designs were originally used in 1871 and reused in 1898.  The engraved dates are July 1st 1871 and July 1st 1898.  Each note is signed by Walter Lawson and G.P. Payzant or A.P. Shand.  Four, five, and ten dollar bank notes were issued.  All denominations are extremely rare as issued notes.  Proofs are much more available.  Please contact us if you need help valuing your note.  We are interested buyers as well.
