Hello Admin:

I realize that running this site is a gargantuan undertaking and a thankless task, but when will "The Notes" page be updated with links to registries for the Birds of Canada, Canadian Journey and Frontiers series of notes?

Thanks,
Dean

Hello Admin:

I've noticed that the post count located under my name is no longer working.  It is stuck at the same number even though I've made many posts in the last few weeks.

Is this feature gone for good?

Thanks,
Dean

Finds for January 25th:
Centennials, a couple of 54s and a 1937 $1 note too!
The $2 is almost a radar!

Definitely not the same note!  That would be quite the restoration.  I own the note on the left, and can say it appears to be totally original to my eyes.  It just has some minor handling which caused it to receive the 58 PPQ grade.  I've seen notes graded 65 with worse.  You're welcome to make an offer if it's a note that interests you.

The 1935 notes were printed "12/on" which means that a single sheet contained 12 notes, presumably either 2x6 or 3x4.  Either way, they were numbered in groups of four, each four having the same sheet number but differentiated by check letters A, B, C or D.  So a single sheet would have three distinct sheet numbers, each having four check letters, for a total of 12 unique serial numbers.  Note that the serial number is composed of both the sheet number and the check letter (and in the case of older issues, the series letter too).

Lower denominations were printed "24/on", and all denominations had their last few sheets needed to complete an order printed "4/on".

More details about this can be found in the Details of the Printing paragraph at the beginning of the 1935 series in your Charlton Government Paper Money catalogue.

Going back to your two example notes, since they have distinct check letters, they are different notes and thus there appears to be no funny business afoot in that regard.  I've not looked at the full-size images of either note so I make no comments whatsoever about the conditions of either note.

I have seen the earlier post that shows the 000008 original and minor restoration and still the D plate

I'm just doing research to learn the value of this note, I would like to get one one day (french).

This is from the heritage auction site, both bills have the same serial one a plate D one a Plate B and obvious different condition.

Has it been restored more and major changes done to it.
Newer sold for $22k
Older $3k

Am I missing something here

Well, after a couple of days without any finds, I got lucky today.
From one bank, the teller said “I only have two old notes, but you probably won’t want them because they are really folded.”
I asked to see them anyway and...out came a 1937 $50 and a 1954 $20!

The next bank I visited near closing time and I asked the teller if she had any paper money.  She said
“I have a few old $100 bills...do you want them?”  They turned out to be 1975 $100 notes in nice shape...except one note has a tiny bit of a teller stamp on it.😠

I also got three 2017 $10s...all in all, it was a good day!  When a teller offers you a 1937 note, don’t turn it down!

- MORE great finds Dean! The 1954 *O/G $2 & 1979 $20 replacement are amazing. I also like the looks of the condition of many of them (the higher grade $2.00, Journeys & centennials).

Gifts of appreciation also go a very long way to getting on the good side of the bank tellers.
-Absolutely.  ;D I have come back with either 1 or 2 dozen donuts for the TD & BMO branch where that 1 friendly teller helped me.  I gave him an old Chartlon GPM catalogue but have lost track where he went (they were always moving him around to different branches).

you find a friendly teller, DO NOT let them go.
- I wish!  I guess that's been my weakness as I never have been able to get a teller's contact email or see many who last long at these branches.   ::)
I will have to dig up my TD contact cards & see if I can find "Ms. Icy's" phone # & buzz her at my home branch one of these days.

All these -ve experiences were part'n'parcel to why I stopped trying to search bundles. Last week was the 1st time that any branch sold me old notes from their old/damage purse (so that's why I posted my DF find). 8)

The lesson here is to keep trying and also when you find a friendly teller, DO NOT let them go.
Try to get their work emails so when and if they move branches, go to see them there too.  Gifts of appreciation also go a very long way to getting on the good side of the bank tellers.

That being said, here are my finds for January 19th, from one bank.

Highlights include a 1954 $2 O/G asterisk note, a 1979 516 replacement note and 39 UNC centennial dollar bills.
