21   Show and Tell / Re: Banknotes with a story...post yours here too!

I got these roughed up $1 notes from one of my banks today.
They could be “friendship notes” that are torn in half, with each person keeping their half until reunited with their friend.

Or, they could be just plain old worn out notes that should have been returned for shredding.  In any case,  the one note clearly shows the damage that adhesive tape can cause to a note.

Maybe Seth has an opinion about these notes…

Enjoy!

November 15th finds:

Today, I stopped by a branch that I had not visited in months…the friendly teller gave me these notes
Nothing too special today; a nicer journey $20 was the highlight of this lot.
Of note are the two destroyed $1 bills.  These are probably “friendship notes” which are torn in half and kept between friends.

One of the notes has been taped back together while The other one is missing the other half…or they could be plain old torn up notes.  Who knows?

You have to take the good with the bad, I guess!😂

Enjoy!

November 12th finds part 2…

Well, the second bank provided me with another motherlode of notes, spanning several series and a whole range of condition.

The highlights of this haul were:

A devil’s face $1 signed by Coyne & Towers
A nice birds $1000 note
A birds $20 replacement note AIX with serifs
A centennial $1 N/O series asterisk note
A birds $5 ANH signed by Bonin & Thiessen
Several 1954 notes in very nice shape, a couple of them in UNC
And an unfortunate $1 note covered in packing tape.  Why do people do this to perfectly good bills?
I am barely taking this all in.

Happy hunting…the notes are out there! 

Enjoy the pictures,

Dean

November 12th finds…part 1

I had calls from two banks today.  The first haul must have been a collection dump because most of the notes are crisp uncirculated.  The only exception ws one note that is EF but it is almost a radar…only off by two notes!

I did notice that on the triple letter prefix Lawson signed notes in the AAY series, the first A prefix letter is clearly smaller than the second A. Is this noteworthy?  I have not seen a “small A” variety reported in the Charlton Catalogue.

Part 2 to follow.

Enjoy the pictures!

25   Dominion of Canada Notes / An Interesting 1878 $1 Dominion Note

on November 11, 2021, 10:45:46 am

Started by Just Bank Notes - Last post by Just Bank Notes

Hello CPMF,

An interesting 1878 $1 Dominion note was offered in an auction from Quebec City on November 7th.  It was only a VG note in the common Toronto “A” series.
What makes it special is the 5 digit sheet number 68770/D.
This note is only the fourth 5 digit sheet number recorded so far.  All other 1878’s, in every variety, have 6 digits.  More information is being prepared for an upcoming article in the Canadian Paper Money Society Journal.

Joining CPMS would be a great New Year’s resolution - or better yet, sign up today!

Cheers,
