Hello CPMF,

I am continuing to research 1878 $1 Dominion notes with 5 digit sheet numbers.

(People commonly refer to these as serial numbers – Dominion notes were printed with the same “sheet number” on four note sheets and used check letters A, B, C, and D to differentiate them.)
 
It was previously thought that all 1878 $1 Dominion notes had six digits and used leading zeroes for low numbers.  Research has shown that 1878 Toronto series A notes started with five digit sheet numbers below 100000 and continued with six digits.  All other varieties in this series used six digit sheet numbers.

So far, seven of these 5 digit sheet number notes have been observed. I posted on CPMF in November 2021 that an auction sold 68770/D in VG condition.

My list of 1878 $1 Toronto series A so far is (sheet number/check letter):
17819/B
21370/A
50155/C
51117/B
68770/D
72764/D  added January 2023
84196/B
89913/B
 
CPMF, please post additions here or send me a PM if you prefer.

Cheers,
“Just Bank Notes”

Hello CPMF,

Another 1878 $1 Dominion series A note with 5 digit numbers was seen on eBay in December '22.  It has sheet number/check letter 72764/D and is in rough shape grading ~Fair.

This brings the total to eight notes.  The lowest number seen to date is 17819.  It is very likely that numbers below 10,000 will include leading zeros to fill up five digits.

Cheers,
