Printed but never issued, The Council got cold feet. To date, this is still an unknown depression note. No actual issues from the 1930's have been found, but below is an impress from the orginal plates.

Therefore, no one knows what the actual colors and paper stock was intended to be used for this note.
But it is intriguing to know that William Aberhart was principal of Brantford Central High
School before moving to Calgary in 1910. Were conversations with him
or news articles behind the idea here in Ontario?

The attached photo is submitted to supplement and correct the item on
the Grimes County GenWeb
page titled "Civil War Script." The correct word is "Scrip," misspelled by the submitter of the posted
photo. Grimes County, as did other counties, issued scrip as legal tender during the Civil War.
G. M Patrick, Chief Justice, signed the scrip and G. A. Mooring, County Clerk, attested his signature.
Anyone who has a piece of the "Patrick" scrip today has a valuable collector's item.
Several Louisiana railroads issued their own "money" during
the Civil War. The New Orleans, Jackson
and Great Northern, for example, issued and circulated its own notes in Louisiana and Mississippi.
This "railroad money" could neither bear interest, nor could its denominations be larger than five dollars.
As the Confederacy began to crumble, the people along the railway turned to the Great Northern's currency.
Yet at the end of hostilities, the company was bankrupt.
Private company scrip
Scrip was issued by the company owned stores to those employees who made a request for it between paydays.
If an employee wanted to draw against his earned wages before payday, he could apply for "scrip" which could
be spent only in the company store. The amount of scrip would then be deducted from his weekly or biweekly
pay by the mine company payroll office. Most of the coal mine companies had their own stores which stocked
basic commodities such as corn, beans, fruit, flour, canned goods, meat, sugar, candy, ice cream, tobacco,
clothing, and furniture. In coal camps, the only store in town was usually owned or run on
behalf of the coal company.

concentration camp money (german)
During World War II, Germany created special currency (more like scrip, really) specifically for
concentration camps. These were often created by the Jewish prisoners and many were quite intricate.
Concentration Camp Money are collectible because of their historical reasons and as a
reminder of the Holocaust.The concentration camp money(scrip) shown above was used by inmates and had no
convertibility outside the camp. This had the effect of denying escapees from having
any money to spend if they escaped. The Concentration Camp Money above was issued
in the Westerbork Concentration Camp (where Anne Frank and her family were taken.)
Was William Aberhart
way out on a limb with Prosperity Certificates
or in the company of a Mutitude?
