Ottawa, Canada, Bank of Canada, $5, 1954, serial F/C 2998786, Beattie-Coyne, "Devil's Face" note, very rare, ex-Malone. SCWPM-68b. With case: 12-1/2" x 8-1/4" x 2". Not only is this the first Canadian $5 we've seen from the Andrea Doria but also it features a rare and popular variety called the "Devil's Face," so called for a ghoulish face seemingly visible in the Queen Elizabeth's hair curls. Paper degradation and staining is present along both sides yet the center part of the note is still bold and legible. With original display box, salvager's certificate, and booklet. Pedigreed to the collection of diver Bart Malone, past curator of the Museum of New Jersey Maritime History. Recovered from: Andrea Doria, sunk in 1956 off Massachusetts
