CTC CASH BONUS COUPONS

The story goes that when the time came to obtain the signatures for the finished notes, the Treasurer, Fred Sasaki, was away.One of the printers forged the signature, misspelling it `SASKI'! The other signature represents A.J.Billes who at that time was President.A.J.Billes succeeded his older brother J.W. as President of the CTC upon J.W.'s death in 1956.It is reported that the signature of A.J.'s on the note is not his either! These coupons were the work of the BABN Company.The denominations are printed black in square white boxes in the corners of the coupon.

The reverse of the note is perhaps one of the prettiest of the CTC coupons and is reminiscent of the reverses of the first Bank of Canada issues of Queen Elizabeth.It depicts a wheat field in the foreground with oil derricks to the rear left and to the right, a CTC store.Behind the store is a rising sun with the `TESTED PROVEN' logo across it.The denominations are in the four corners.
...
At that time, the signature of the Treasurer, Fred Sasaki, was misspelt on the coupons as `Saski'.One would think that in three years time a correction would have been made.But once again the `Saski' spelling persisted! Could these coupons been printed earlier than 1961? Only when more information becomes available will the real answers become known.
This series was issued in six denominations, each with it be own base colour and prefix letters.The set consists of :.
...
Below that are the signatures of the Treasurer, Fred Sasaki and the President, Alfred Billes.
...
All known coupons, up until a few months ago, bore the signatures of F. Sasaki, Treasurer and A.Billes, President above the border at the bottom of the coupon.A woman in Quebec recently found a coupon with the signatures of Sasaki and Muncaster! That has been the only one found so far, so keep your eyes peeled for one like that.
In the left border design is written save safely and on the right economie! securite!.This is a change from the rural scene coupons which used the french slogan epargnes assures in the right border.That slogan was never used after the rural scene issue.
