Found this banknote on the Bank of Canada's National Currency Museum website.  It is an 1866 Province
of Canada $10 Counterfeit.  The note has all the design features of the $1 denomination but the
numeral and words have been altered to read "10" and "Ten".

Very cool, considering this banknote is 140 years old.

Looks pretty well-circulated. Funny how no one noticed it.
