November 24th purchase

With my banks kind of drying up, I have indulged in purchases to feed my addiction to paper money.
This lot of 4 shinplasters was interesting, only because of the one note with manuscript (and it’s cut out of register too).

Read more about this note on my other thread, “Banknotes with a story…”

Enjoy!

Reminder that our monthly meetings are continuing and topics have been decided on for 2023.

Attendance like most other virtual events has taken a back seat since the summer and we are hoping to turn that around if possible. 

Even with only a handful in attendance the meetings still run the full two hours but would be way more fun if a few dozen or more showed up.

Our next meeting is on December 15 at 7pm and we would love to see more banknote collectors dropping in.

For a list of upcoming topics please visit:  https://www.theibns.org/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=859:ontario-chapter&catid=10:the-ibns-chapters&Itemid=46

I have been recommending CP Flex Delivery for several years now and before porch pirates became the scourge they are now.

Be sure to check any restrictions such as originating Country, etc.  Not only does it hide your home address, it also protects your privacy as the mail delivery person and other nosey people won't discover your collecting interests. All RCM products and numismatic related printed material goes to the Post Office conveniently located in places where I regularly shop.

I went to one of my TD Toronto branches today and got 200 10 dollar notes.  Not a Mac10 in the bunch -- what are the odds of this?  This is a first that I have found a bank branch "actively" pulling these notes from circulation, while I still get lots of them (never in better than VF condition) from every other branch. Anyone else noticed this?

As for the AJG's situation in the east coast, could it be because when the final supply of Mac10s were issued each province got an allotment and other provinces have used theirs up faster than eastern provinces, causing the BoC to issue the Desmonds to Toronto, for example due to demand for newer notes?

Every time I go to the bank and do a transaction that includes 100's of notes -- any notes in extremely poor condition cause free standing counting machines to malfunction and even the cash distribution machines to jamb (just like a photocopier does).  There has to come a time when old notes cost banks money due to the fact that the machines they use simply can not process them any longer.  When your business is counting thousands and thousands of notes, and those notes become so old that the machines wont process them -- the BoC has no choice but to issue new notes.

Economically, I can't see the BoC cancelling the 10 note anytime soon and wonder if east coast collectors are simply caught in 10 dollar note hell/limbo.  The province has not used up its supply of Mac10s that they are actively pulling from circulation, and there is not enough demand to issue new prefixes of either Mac10s or Desmonds?  They could have a massive supply of 5 dollar notes that they likely NEED to use up before the next revision of the design of this note, and therefore it may seem like they have stopped issuing 10s?

I don't know whether to feel sorry for AJG, or be a little envious and whether his situation is a blessing or a curse?  Wouldn't new prefixes of either notes issued in his province likely to be exclusive to the east coast that the rest of us in other provinces will never see?

Don't know how to start a poll ... but wondering what the 10 note situation is in other provinces?

I now have even more reason not to buy this "MacDonald's likeness" theory as to why the 2013 $10s are being withdrawn.  The reason is that his likeness is on the 2017 commemorative issue which is still in circulation (at least in Atlantic Canada).  And I agree with one poster that there have been new 2013 issue $10 notes released as recently as last year, and I believe I was one of the users who got my hands on some new 2013 issue $10 notes as early as around April 2021 (mainly FTVs).  The 2013 issue $10s that exist in my province (and likely the rest of Atlantic Canada) are still in pretty good condition, but I have a feeling that, unless some banks in my province start releasing the Macklem/Poloz signature $10s from any outstanding stockpiles, there could be Desmond $10s finally seeing the light of day in my province in a few years' time - but far fewer $10 notes as opposed to 20 years ago.  I don't know if the Scotiabank branch I deal with will have them - I certainly hope the rumour I heard six months ago isn't true.

I'm wondering about the 'theory' that $10 MacDonald notes are being 'removed' from circulation because of who is depicted on the note when the majority seem to be in such poor condition... and there is a circulating alternative for the ten being the new Desmonds.  There isn't option for other notes like the 5 where they just keep issuing new.  Perhaps we should all be asking ... when is the current 'stock' of signatures the BoC going to run out and they need to start issuing Rogers????
