Vintage Canadian Banknotes...and an American $2 Bill!

Came across a small collection of some vintage Canadian currency that also included the ever elusive American $2 bill -- so I thought I would share them.

I have always found the colours on many of the vintage bills to be very charming and now, so many years later, almost whimsical.
