The BoC 1935 $20 notes



The 1935 $20 is black with rose tint. It shows H.R.H. Princess Elizabeth
on the face (who later became Queen Elizabeth II) and an Agricultural
allegory on the back.

Two variations of the English bill are listed below. The "seal" is
the circle to the right side of center with a maple left in it. I have displayed
above the small seal (English). A large seal would just about touch the
"Issue of 1935" line. The French note has no seal applied.

Cat. No. Variety
BC-9a English, large seal
BC-9b French, small seal
BC-10 French
