Though Newfoundland is a province of Canada, it did not become one until 1949 and is the last province to join Canada. Up until the 1920′s, and starting from the 1850′s Newfoundland issued its own paper money which ranged from 1 Pound to 25 Cents to 2 Dollars. Banknotes from Newfoundland are pretty rare on eBay, and the most that I have ever seen are less than 20 at one time, most of which are available only through ‘Buy It Now’ sales for very high prices. So when this one popped up as an auction, I kept my eyes on it, and finally had the good fortune to win it for $61. Yes, the condition is very rough, but not only is this a scarce banknote, but it also adds another new country to my list of countries from which I have paper money. And no, Newfoundland is no longer a country, so this is also a non-existing country on my list.
