So I thought I saw something black while the notes were going through the counter at the bank, and after the teller handed me the pile I looked for it, and laughed when I found it.  I showed it to the teller and she said "oh my ... let me get you another one" and I said "No way, I've never seen this variety before". It was only after I left that I noticed the prefix.   :D  Hey Dean ... what do you think the 'story' is behind this note?

If you have not had a chance to attend the monthly Zoom meetings - same id# and passcode each month unless we change it, you are in for a real treat and are welcome to drop in.

Topics have been very educational and informative so far and range from Military, heads of state, Space and transportation.  Additional topics have been lined up and there is always a fun show and tell session as well.

The July 21 presentation will be Banknotes of former nations or territories.  You do not have to be an IBNS member to attend, so why not check us out?

In other news Ontario Chapter president BWJM has been appointed Area 2 director overseeing Canada, U.S.A and Bermuda.

Hi,
For now all 2$ with a starting prefix BBA...BBN have large B on the first B and a small B on the second,sowhere in prefix BBP we saw the transition the large B change for a small B and after BBP to BBZ it's all small B.But in prefix BGA to BGZ it supposed to be all small B but we found in some prefix it have large B on the left or on the right or on the both side.Also large B was found in 10$ 1989 in prefix BDD.Finally at my surprise I found this kind of ''error'' in 1$ 1973.All 1$ 1973 who start prefix(3letters) with letter B it all large B execpt the two I found,for now??
If you have any discovery in 2$ 1986 and 1$ 1973 please inform me.
Thank you.
Claude

Hey Dean,
I too love the history behind certain notes like short snorters and have been quite successful tracking signatures to real people through military records and signature style.  I'm not quite sure if you were serious when you said if only you could find out who's signature is on the T. Eaton Company bank stamp? I'm pretty sure it is Timothy Eaton's and you can check here for a likeness.

These are very nice finds...
There seem to be a lot of 1975 $100s around at the banks. I wonder why?
I agree about Journey notes in general.  Almost makes it 'boring' to go to the bank.  :'(  Have also noticed that it seems every in person transaction involves buying Euros -- not American.

June 25th:

Here is a set of 6 consecutive PMG graded 1954 Devil's Face $20s that I purchased for my collection.

I traded 2 consecutive 1954 modified $1000s and a bit of cash for them.

Enjoy!
