These notes were first issued in 1870 as a temporary measure to counteract the effects of an excess of American silver coinage circulating in Canada. These notes got the nickname of "Shinplaster" as soldiers put these notes in front of their boots to cushion their shins against chafing and rashes during the American Revolutionary War. Shinplasters were so popular that they were reissued in 1900 as well as 1923. In 1929 there were over 5 million notes that were in circulation however, in 1935 the new Bank Of Canada began recalling them.
Some shinplasters had a plate number that was under the date, with either an "A" or an "B". Others did not have any plate number and that space was blank. Did you know that these notes have been separated with scissors, which resulted in irregular margins. These notes are extremely rare!
These notes were printed in sheets of 10 until the year 1918. Afterwards they were printed in sheets of 20. Unlike the 1870 shinplaster, there is no check letter or sheet number. There is also no series letter.
The 1923 25-cent banknote were issued to replace the 1900 banknote. The only change that was made was the design on front, it was modified.
The only authorized 1923 25 Cent note was signed by Hyndman-Saunders and there were 510,000 notes printed.
