February 29th:

I entered the notes I found today into the SNDB.  The journey $10 was a new low, but the journey $50 came back as being previously entered into the database.  Maybe I entered it…or somebody else did.

Leap year luck…

Today, I stopped by one of my banks to pick up a box of dimes that I had pre ordered.  I asked the teller if any new bills had come in and she let me look through the mutilated pile.

I chose a few notes, including a nice birds $50 and a couple of $2s.

Stay tuned for the coin roll hunting results…

Enjoy!

 The HBG Macklem Carney was issued in May 2014. In August 2014 a few notes went into circulation and for many months we did not found any HBG notes. the price went  to the roof, the price was up to 500$ a piece.
everybody  tought that it was a short run. the price was  high for many months . 6 months later  the price went down to 15$ ,after finding a lot of bundles in the back of some bank of canada storage facilities

As one door closes, another one always opens.

Today I made a “cold call” to a bank I had never visited before.  It was right before closing time and the teller was very accommodating when I asked him for old paper money.  This was only a couple of days after I was stonewalled by one of my banks that used to give me notes and coins all the time and recently has refused to give me anything; even rolls of coins.

The teller went through his stack of about $15,000 in mutilated notes and gave me nine $10s a $50, a few 1973 $1s and a birds $1000.

This is the first $1000 note I have managed to pick up in a very long time.  They are definitely getting harder to find at the banks.

I also managed to get $50 in customer wrapped dimes…We’ll see if there’s anything good inside…

Enjoy!

Hi,

I went to TOREX yesterday.  Did anybody else go?

I was saddened to see how dead it was, especially on a Saturday.  There were few visitors and lots of empty tables.  I even witnessed a couple of dealers pack up and leave early.

TOREX feels like it is on life support.  This is sad because I have been attending the show for decades—since it was located at the Primrose Hotel in downtown Toronto.

TOREX is located too far out of the way for a growing number of collectors who do not (or can no longer) drive a car.  In its current location by the airport, TOREX is not close to the TTC subway line and many people are not willing to spend hours travelling by bus to get to the venue.

With the lack of dealers and merchandise at this latest edition of TOREX, it is in my opinion not worth the price of admission.  Hopefully, the organizers of TOREX are seeing the writing on the wall and will try to reinvigorate the show by at least moving to a venue that is on one of Toronto’s subway lines.  I would happily pay a higher admission fee if the show was more conveniently located.

Just my 2 cents…feel free to chime in.

Dean
