Has anyone ever seen a Newfoundland $50 note either from the Union band or the commercial bank. If so what was the colour scheme and vignette used on it. I beleive it may have been available form 1888/9 till the crash of 1894.

 I saw the Canada, Commercial Bank of Newfoundland, 50 dollars : January 3, 1888
 which is green in color at a show in Toronto about 10 years ago.
It was not in great condition, but I wish I had one like it.
I do not think there are any to purchase anywhere right now.

I've had one in my possession for over 30 years.
