This is "Quebec Card Money" dating from 1735. It's a small piece of paper that could be exchanged for a silver coin to facilitate trade with mainland France. It'll be auctioned by the Canadian Numismatic Company for $25,000!

I like the comparison on the source article "the 19th Century version of a debit card"!.
