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!
Dean

February 26th finds:
As one door closes, another one always opens.

Today I made a “cold call” to a bank I had never visited before.  It was right before closing time and the teller was very accommodating when I asked him for old paper money.  This was only a couple of days after I was stonewalled by one of my banks that used to give me notes and coins all the time and recently has refused to give me anything; even rolls of coins.

The teller went through his stack of about $15,000 in mutilated notes and gave me nine $10s a $50, a few 1973 $1s and a birds $1000.

This is the first $1000 note I have managed to pick up in a very long time.  They are definitely getting harder to find at the banks.

I also managed to get $50 in customer wrapped dimes…We’ll see if there’s anything good inside…

Enjoy!

Update:  Dime roll hunt results:


$3.70 in pre 2000 Canadian dimes
two 2017 commemoratives
two 2021 Bluenose under sail (one coloured).
nine US dimes
six King Charles 2023 dimes
two UK 5 pence 1992 and 2005
one 1/2 Franc from Switzerland, 1994
a 10 cent coin from Trinidad & Tobago 2007
a 50 Peso coin from Colombia, 2015
No silver this time, but a trip around the world instead!

February 29th finds:
Leap year luck…

Today, I stopped by one of my banks to pick up a box of dimes that I had pre ordered.  I asked the teller if any new bills had come in and she let me look through the mutilated pile.

I chose a few notes, including a nice birds $50 and a couple of $2s.

Stay tuned for the coin roll hunting results…

Enjoy!

February 29th:

I entered the notes I found today into the SNDB.  The journey $10 was a new low, but the journey $50 came back as being previously entered into the database.  Maybe I entered it…or somebody else did.

Dean, you entered AHF 9927023 at datetime 2024-02-16 08:16:06.  It would be interesting to know if the same note has been found by more than one member, though.  By the birthday paradox, it would actually be quite likely to happen.
