The Dominion of Canada also had both 25c. banknotes (commonly called 'Shinplasters' because of their size) between 1870 & 1923.The 1870 & 1923 25c. 'Shinplasters' almost never seem to turn up.I've never seen an 1870 issue,but I have seen 2 examples of the 1923,of which one is in my collection.
The 1870 issues were issued right up until 1900.There are 3 types - one without a letter,one with the letter 'A',& one with the letter 'B'.They can be found located near the date.
The 1900-dated issues were issued right up until 1923.There are several different signatories.These notes do turn up a lot in the bottom grades,but dealers over here want too much (in my view!) for them.
The 1923-dated issues have several types,& 3 different signature combinations.These were withdrawn from circulation in 1935,along with all the other notes inscribed 'DOMINION OF CANADA'.
All the Dominion notes were replaced by the first issue of the current Bank of Canada (which was established as a chartered bank in 1935,& nationalised in 1938) in 1935 (which is now an issue that is virtually unobtainable by the average collector,as the prices have strengthened so high & so fast in the past 10 years or so).
