@wagnert89  I search mostly online daily and sporadically. Only on Monday, I can spend 8 to 10hrs bookmarking item from, ebay, local online auctions, Auctionnetwork.ca and icollector ect... So no one place really.

I always wanted to hit garage sales and estate sales, but I am reluctant. I guess those can be very time consuming and un-fruitful.

The next auction that has my eye coming up in September, the Colonial Acres online auction. Some nice item there, but if memory serves me right they are tuff to get deals on. Rest assure I will try tho...

Happy hunting.

Hey guys,

Thank you for your evaluation on my recent purchase, I have gotten some good feedback and it seems the condition is the big factor. It seems some think the note is in G, BV of $1000. Al-Bob has said it's worth much less, closer to FV.

I paid $254 Canadian, shipping, premium and tax included. I think I did ok on my investment. I don't think this note will fall lower then what I paid in the future as long as I maintain the condition.

Thank you all for your knowledge.
You have the french version of this note which books now at $1,500 in G. Its in poor condition but still a very hard to find note that very few collectors have. At $254 in my opinion is an amazing deal that i would have not passed on. Even in the condition the note is in i think its still worth in the 1,000-1,200 range. The good news with all the 1935 series is they continue to gain value each year in almost all grades.

This is the original state of the Merchants Bank $50.  The conservator did a wonderful job on it.
Sorry for the image quality, it is quite small in the Interpam sale catalogue.

Hello,

Looking for a evaluation and/or if anyone has ever seen one sell and at what price?

The book only gives a guidance price of Rare.

All views are welcome
There are not many radar notes/low serial numbered notes around for the 1937 series. Because of the scarcity of these notes there are no real "fixed" value for these unlike the other series. Its really what one would be willing to pay.

You received a good deal at that price. Yes, it's a rag and not manypeople would pay alot but still a decent deal.  Whoever held onto that lost alot of money. $ 100 investment in some stock or interest payment then would be worth a small fortune today. What site are you finding these deals.

You might have more luck here at the coin forums.

As far as the rarest dollar coin it would have to be the 1911 silver dollar.

2 exist. One in public collectors hands and one in the Bank of Canada Museum.
