New 1954 G/R Test Note Found

By: Brent W.J. Mackie

This newly-discovered 1954 $2 G/R test note was purchased as part of a lot of 1954 $2 notes from a seller in the United States. The note appeared briefly on the Canadian Paper Money Forums in late February but was not made available for purchase. The note did however trade hands a few days later at the Torex show in Toronto. The note now resides with a private collector who has provided scans of this note for the Newsletter and the G/R test note registry.
