February 15th finds:  part 2…Mail call!

When I got home from the second branch visit, I saw a package and an envelope waiting for me.

My contact in New Brunswick had sent me a load of bank notes and it had finally arrived!

In the box, he had sent a huge pile of 1973 $1s, 1986 $2s 1967 $1s and some nicer paper notes.

Highlights of this box include four consecutive BGH prefix notes…for Claude.  🙂

And one ratty 1973 $1 with a near-radar serial number, LS6866666.


The envelope contained three circulated birds $2s that I bought online.  I would not usually purchase circulated birds $2s but there was one note that had a written message on it.  More on this note in my other thread.

Enjoy!

February 15th finds: Part 1

I got so much stuff yesterday that I had to delay my post so I could process it all!  😀

I got an email from the main branch.  The teller said that she had “a few older bills” if I wanted to check them out.  So, off I went and while the notes were underwhelming, I took them anyway because the teller had saved them for me.

I ended up leaving with a couple of $5s, a couple of $2s and a $20…

When I got home from the main branch, I saw an email from another branch.  This second teller said that she had “some crisp older bills that just came in”.  So, off I went to the second branch.
The bills I received at the second branch were much nicer. Six birds $100s, a $50, a couple of $10 and some $5s made up this haul.

Stay tuned for part 2!

Enjoy,
Dean

Hi rxcory.

These look like Lighthouse currency sleeves.  They are available at www.coinstampsupplies.com in small, medium or large sizes.

I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find this exact style of currency sleeve (see photo). This style has rounded top corners, crimped side edges, and measures approx. 8 x 18 cm. Best of all, they are thin enough to be inserted into large-size sleeves for added protection. Thanks in advance.

February 15th finds:

Yesterday, I went to one of my banks because the teller said that she had “over 200 rolls of pennies”.

I ended up buying 209 penny rolls plus four 1979 $50s and one journey $50 that the teller had received that same day.

The teller said that the pennies “come from the same guy who brings them in in big batches”.

Enjoy!

I still have not come across Charles coins in the wild and will be asking at the bank from now on if they have any rolls, but ... is there possibility they are holding back mass issue of Charles coins, until they circulate all of the Elizabeth's they likely already have minted??

Also, love the token. Read something recently about vintage TTC tokens garnering a high price, but can't remember where?!?

February 10th coin roll hunt update:

Well, it didn’t take long to hunt all of the coins I broght home today…Because there wasn’t much to find.

12 commemorative quarters, one US quarter and two King Charles quarters plus just under $10 in pre 2000 dimes, plus only seven US dimes.

The highlight is not a coin at all…it’s an aluminum TTC transit token!

Enjoy,
Dean

February 12th finds:

More paper…and some coins for good measure.

I managed to pick up some paper notes from one of my banks today.  The teller was also nice enough to give me $8 worth of penny rolls and some customer wrapped rolls of dimes and quarters.  The circulation issue BDH prefix birds $10 is a neat find.

Two of the penny rolls have American coins on both ends…Maybe they are all US pennies inside…

The teller said that a “lady has been bringing in pennies every week that she found from her father’s things”.  This is yet another estate clear out…

Enjoy!
