Another great photo Dean! Thanks for sharing.

I'm just imagining all those Osborne-Towers signatures, "Z/D" Gordon $10 & special serial numbers that could have been pulled from those bricks.

I bet they were NOT allowed to inspect them however.  The managers would have been pretty "anal" (about breaking protocol) at least by today's standards. If it was the duty of the employees to count the bundles then they would not have been allowed to inspect each note. It would not have been acceptable to exchange a collectible with a note that the employee owned. I would imagine that supervision was tight (constant) & "snitches" would have been highly rewarded (motivated to tell their bosses if someone was doing something untoward).

Wow! That is pretty shameful of RBC. So what do they do with your present account funds, transfer them, or send you a check?

Just curious: did you or were you trying to recycle cash with them? The reason I ask is that about 8 years ago I had gone to my TD branch to take out a brick (1000) Fives and was told the manager wanted to see me. So I went into his office & he asked me what was up with the big withdrawal. I told him about my hobby & he told me that they were not in the business of doing that & that I'd have to write him a letter explaining my hobby if I wanted the brick (the last I'd get from that branch).

I was pretty angry (been banking with them 40+ years at least) but wrote the letter anyway. They set me up with 1000 circulated notes worthy of BoC incinerator (a not-so-subtle snub message). I was pretty PO'd & started a rant here on CPMF.  Another CPMF member called me to tell me that "at least you didn't get "red-flagged." He explained that they can "red flag" me and freeze my account if they had wished to do so. That's why I'm curious. I've tried setting up other accounts with RBC, CIBC & BMO. I only have the TD & BMO accounts now b/c of constant problems with the other 2. 

Please keep us posted.

So I have been an RBC client/customer for probably 25 years.  I have had mortgages, loans, LOC over this time span.  Out of the blue, i get a letter delivered by courier stating that RBC is terminating my banking relationship.  Well at first i thought maybe this was some kind of a scam but after finally contacting client care, the lady confirms that it is a legitimate document.  My next question is the reason as it doesn't state that anywhere in the document.  She says she has no more information than what the document mentions.  So i asked to speak with someone higher up and i will not take this without an answer.  So i am awaiting a call that will be within the next 2-3 business days.   
I can't believe with the billions in profit that they make that they randomly decide they don't need clients.

I have some June 28th, 1900 to 1980, $20 FZC birthday notes if anyone is interested for face or prefix trade.

 I am sure there are a couple missing in there but let me know what you want and I will see if it is there.

The Bank of Canada knows the quantity!  :)

When I bought a sheet from the BOC, I was told that they were selling fewer than expected.

I am offering to sell my $10 sheet for $3,600 plus the freight (no taxes).  PM me.  It has been rolled up in the tube from the BOC all this time and deserves to hang on someone's wall.

I guess nobody knows the quantity but very few were sold. If you are interested I've got a $5 sheet for sale.

Hello all. The latest edition of the Canadian Coin News has an auction results about a sheet selling for $3680.  My Charlton Cat says "Up to" 11000 sheets were available to purchase. Does anyone actually know how many were sold? I just don't know why they are worth so much. Thanks!
