Value of May 1st 1912 $5 Bill from The Dominion of Canada

Dominion of Canada May 1st 1912 Five Dollar Bill

Description:   The Dominion of Canada issued five dollar bills for the first time in 1912. Many collectors see these notes and think they are incomplete because they do not feature a portrait. Each note has a simple vignette of a train. The train is the Ocean Limited and it is traveling on the Intercolonial Railway through the Wentworth Valley in Nova Scotia. These bank notes are relatively available in all grades; but that does not mean they are always cheap.

Varieties:   There are eight different types of 1912 $5 bills based on the seal type, signature combination, and signature type. We are not going to get into the details here because none of the varieties are especially rare. Each bank note is already rare enough on its own. Please send us pictures of your bank note and we can tell you what type you have and advise as to its value.
