Old Prince Edward Island Bank Notes

CBC News Posted: Sep 27, 2012 1:49 PM AT

A New Brunswick man is looking to cash in on some old currency from Prince Edward Island.

Geoff Bell is from Shediac, N.B. and has taken some very old P.E.I. bank notes to the Toronto Coin Expo. Bell has four rare bank notes that are expected to fetch a big price at a Toronto auction this weekend. The bills were issued by the Summerside Bank in the 1800's.

Bell's collection includes a pair of one of a kind bank notes, including a $4 bill from 1866.

"They're very difficult to find," said Bell. "Any Summerside notes are difficult to find, but to find two unique ones and then two of such great condition, well it's unheard of really."

Bell says the starting bid for the rare $4 bank note is $25,000.
