$15,000 cash offered by a pawn broker is surprisingly generous.  That's not a low-ball offer, and because it's cash, there is no commission on it and the decision to declare that as income is yours.  ;)

Sets like this were offered publicly for the first time in 1999 in the first Bank of Canada archive sale.  It might be worth investigating to see if this set was part of that sale or if it was not.  If it is NOT from that sale, that raises the pedigree of the set and you might be able to get significantly more for it if offered in a major auction.  The 1999 Bank of Canada sale was conducted by Charles Moore's auction company.  Auction catalogues can still be found secondhand or even purchases from Mr Moore directly.

Hi fellow members,

This set was featured in the latest RCNA TCNC auction this past weekend.  Does anyone know how much it went for plus taxes and buyer's premium?

It was for auction item 855

Hey everyone,

its been a few years since I've sold the bank notes and have always sort of regretted it. i was wondering if anyone knows if those original bank notes are for sale anywhere id love to make an offer and possibly purchase them back.

Anyways, bit of a long shot but who knows.

Thanks,
