I have BJY0027171 but sadly no "first day cover" postmark.

Hello CPMF,

Here is my "first day cover" of the Canadian Journey Series $100 from March 17 2004.  It is nice to see that this note has the first prefix BJY and a serial number near the beginning of the print run.

March 16th 2022.

I received these notes in a banknote pickup from one of my regular banks.

This 1937 $10 has a "paid" stamp on it.  I wonder what the note was used to pay?  $10 was a lot of money in the late 1940s-early 1950s (Judging by the signatures on the note).

Also included in this lot were three 1954 modified notes; they all have manuscript that indicates that these notes were given as birthday money to someone (presumably a kid) in January 1973.  One of the $2s is torn at the corner and I think it might have been glued into an album for some time. 

The fact that these notes ended up being deposited to the bank after being treasured keepsakes for so long is sad.  It just goes to show you that while your collection might mean the world to you, it's "just money" to 99% of people on the planet and after you pass away, your beneficiaries will probably do the same thing to your collection unless explicit instructions are left to have the collection appraised before selling.

Enjoy the pictures,
Dean

March 16th finds:
Time to party like it's 1937!

I received a call from one of my branches today.  The teller said "you should come to the branch; somebody just deposited a bunch of really old bills". 

This is what I got:

a bunch of 1937 $10s, $20s and a $1, plus some 1954 modified $1s and $2s dating from the early 1970s.

Interestingly, there is writing on the back of some of the 1954 notes and a "paid" stamp on one of the 1937 $10s.

I will comment on these notes in my other thread "Banknotes with a story..."

Enjoy,
Dean

I got another call on March 12th from the Royal Bank branch in Carleton Place, Ontario where I picked up a number of Bird banknotes and a Journey banknote.  Apparently, the teller told me that an older gentleman brought these notes and he has been keeping since the 1990's.  Many of the notes are of prefixes which started the Bird $50 and $100 especially a number of AJN notes.  There was one UNC $50 note with the prefix EHT.  The Journey note is interesting but it is not a replacement note but pretty close to the top of the range.  Anyways, if anyone is interested in these notes please PM me.

Just like Dean, I have been asking my local branches for paper banknotes and I got a call on March 4 from the RBC branch in Almonte, Ontario that the following notes were deposited.  I was amazed to get 7 UNC 1867 - 1967 $1 banknotes as well as Bird $5 with a HNA prefix and an UNC Journey $5 with a heavy 8 imprint.  I also took a the rest of their Journey Notes as you never know that you might come across a replacement note.  Enjoy the pictures and if you are interested in any notes, please PM me.

March 14th finds:
Diamonds in the rough?

I managed to score a big pile of notes today.  Unfortunately, most of them are low grade “spenders” but there are some diamonds in the rough.  Can you spot them? :)

Enjoy,
Dean
