Prior to the formation of the Bank of Canada in 1934 and the first Bank of Canada notes issued in 1935, most of Canada's banknotes of $5 and higher denominations were issued by the Chartered banks. This is a $10 banknote as issued by the National Bank / La Banque Nationale. This note is marked specimen rather than having serial numbers or a signature at the left side.

"Choice Uncirculated" Condition:
This note has been graded as "Choice Uncirculated". Most surviving specimen notes from this issue were used as samples to show bank employees what the new issue would look like. These sample notes usually show some signs of handling and are usually graded as typical "uncirculated 60". These near perfect notes have good paper quality and have much eye appeal. The note comes sealed in protective packaging from Canadian Coin & Currency verifying their professional opinion of the grade of the note and that it is genuine.
La Banque Nationale was founded in 1860 and had over 230,000 customers by 1918. In 1923, La Banque Nationale merged with the Provincial Bank and La Banque d'Hochelaga to form La Banque Canadienne Nationale. This was the largest francophone bank in Canada with over 260 branches. In 1979, Banque Canadienne Nationale merged with La Banque Provinciale du Canada to from the National Bank of Canada.
