​We are excited to announce the results from some of the bigger lots sold at our ANA auction last week in Rosemont, Illinois. 

An Upper Canada 1 Dollar Note from 1831 brought an incredible $8,400 USD in lot 30105. Other strong results for the country of Canada were the Upper Canada 4 Dollar that sold in lot 30106 for $4,800, as well as a Royal Bank of Canada 50 Dollar note that realized $7,200.

An incredible section of notes from India crossed the block. Included in this section was a set of Persian Gulf Notes that brought $26,400 in lot 30223. This lot paired well with the 100 Rupees that sold for $60,000 in lot 30225. An uncirculated 2 Rupees 9 Annas was also notable, selling for $24,000 in lot 30226

The standout section of the sale featured notes from the Philippines with an Unlisted 1904 5 Rupees selling for $26,400 in lot 30355. In lot 30378, an impressive 1906 500 pesos brought $40,800. Also notable was the 10 pesos from 1912 in lot 30380 that brought $21,600.
