    1986 Birds of Canada Series


    The present cache includes examples of two different Canadian bank note denominations: $20 of 1991 (cf. P-97, BC-58bPE), and $50 of 1988 (cf. P-98, BC-59PE). They comprise various examples of both partial and complete note prints involving different plate numbers. All lack serial numbers. All trial printings of the $20 are pin-punched SPECIMEN. Nine different types of security features are included with more than one type present in some examples. One series of $20 trials show just underprints on the face but with fully printed backs. All nine different types of security features are demonstrated in these. All examples of the $50 are fully printed and lack security features. All have SPECIMEN in black printed heavily across front and back.
