February 24th TOREX pickups:

I went to TOREX yesterday and I found these two 1954 devil’s face $20s in a dealer’s inventory.

The first note is stamped JUL -5 1956.

The second note is partially stamped “…12 1957”.
If the date format was month/day/year, then it was stamped on the 12th day of a month in 1957.

Enjoy!

February 24th find and coin roll hunt:

Yesterday, I picked up a box of dimes and seven rolls of quarters from the bank.
I withdrew some $5 notes from the bank machine and to my surprise, I received a radar note!  INP 5541455

Yesterday’s finds from one box of dimes and seven rolls of quarters.
18 US dimes, 9 commemorative quarters, $37.10 in pre 2000 Canadian dimes including a really nice 1983 and 1979 dime.
There were only three commemorative dimes in the entire box…only one colour 2021.
And of course, one silver dime dated 1963!

Enjoy!

These are still appearing as Lane/Macklem signatures on the SNDB. Is anyone able to update the SNDB to reflect the new Rogers/Macklem signatures?

What do you think, would Bank of Canada issued this prefix today??

Probably not.

Just slow to post my finds from last Saturday where the Bird $50 had writing on it and it seems that it could be for a purchase of a pickup truck in Atlantic Canada where the license plates for NB, NS and NL have started with the letter C followed by two letters and three numbers. On the front side of this bill, it does have a partial bank stamp and I am betting that Dean will be calling for this note.

Also there is a Bird $20 with the last prefix before the Journey notes.

More interesting banknote, I call this one with the "Naughty Prefix" as in other threads in the Forum, there was a discussion if prefix FFG for the Vertical $10 banknotes would be issued and it has.  I wonder if the Bank of Canada would have a different position on this prefix of the 1973 $1 banknote.  I had to buy it off Ebay just to have fun with it. 

What do you think, would Bank of Canada issued this prefix today??

Enjoy the pictures, Whitenite

February 21st finds:
Banknote bonanza!

I stopped by one of my banks and the teller surprised me with a big pile of old paper notes. I was pleased to see that a large portion of the notes were 1954 series and the remainder were multicolour and birds notes.

I can’t decide what the highlight should be…It’s a tie between the 1954 $50 and the 4 digit cycle repeater 1973 $1.

Enjoy!

27   Error Notes / Re: 1967 $1s out of register microprinting

The green tint and the black portion were printed in separate operations.  Registration was not perfect every time.  The slight displacement is normal, not an error.  Both 1867 $1 with serial numbers and with dates were printed for circulation, and were legal tender.

There were nearly 140 million of these commemorative $1 notes printed in a relatively short period of time. It could be that slight variances were seen as acceptable in an effort to get large quantities into circulation.

Interestingly, Statistics Canada places the population of Canada in 1967 at about 20,500,000. That averages out to almost 7 of the $1 banknotes for each person.

I was under the impression that the notes labelled "1867-1967" are not actually legal tender and were intended to be keepsakes whereas the Centennial $1s with prefixes and serial numbers were printed as currency.  People mistook the "1867-1967" souvenir notes as legal tender and started to spend them.  Can anybody confirm this?

Hi,

I took a closer look at some centennial $1 notes that I recently picked up and I noticed a shift in the green microprinted background relative to the black overprint.

Would notes like this be considered error notes?

Thanks,
Dean
