I received an e-mail earlier this afternoon from a person in charge of the currency cage at a major bank in Vancouver.  He keeps an eye out for coins, etc, but then told me if I was interested in older bills.  I said... "Sure!"  Anyhow, he told me that he has $78 of Canadian notes and coins, but it was primarily notes.  I went to pick up the loot... And I was stunned to see what I got.  Take a look at the photos.  This is my best paper money find ever and all at face value!  All notes range from UNC to GEM UNC in the first photo!  In the coins, got $1 1958 silver dollar (in second photo with some circulated $1 notes).  My only explanation to this... Some executor of an estate (a deceased collector) must have just took them in for deposit without realizing some of the value. 

Make sure you spouse knows EXACTLY what the value of your notes!!!... Otherwise, they are sent in for destruction at your local bank branch, orphaned and gone forever.

Good point

Yes, very fortunate of the find by the bank employee.  He obviously does not collect whatsoever.

I was surprised to see the replacement note as well.  It's a common $2 replacement note *B/B Beattie / Rasminsky note, and valued around $30 in UNC.

Nice. I can't see well in the pic... are some of those 1954 dollars H/F's? If that's the case then those are great notes (especially Bouey-Rasminsky) worth a lot more then face value!

Hi JB-2007, you have a sharp eye.

I've finally organized the notes into their currency holders, and examined the prefixes, issue, and value using the Charlton Catalogue. 

Yes, I have 9 consecutive and 3 (total 12) all in Gem UNC $1 H/F Beattie/Rasminsky notes. 

Also included was a:
$1 V/F Lawson/Bouey note in AU condition;
$2 L/G $2 Bouey / Rasminsky, Gem UNC condition;
$2 *B/B Beattie/Rasminsky in Gem UNC; and,
$5 V/X Bouey / Rasminsky in Gem UNC.

The others are just general, common notes mostly in UNC condition.

All the paper notes combined are worth about $500 in value based on the Charlton Catalogue values.  So not too bad for a $67 paper money face value, and one 1958 silver dollar worth only bullion value ($17).

Nice find Shylo. It is always nice to rescue some old bills. I picked up a couple Birds $20s today in really nice condition. Again, nothing special but nice to find at par.

The best part is the bank usually just asks for face value for these.

You make a good point above about the spouse knowing the value of your notes.  I think this is always worth mentioning to them.  I also have a letter that is very prominent in my collection that details what to do, should I unexpectly go to the light. 

A little morbid, but it's better to have a plan.

I completely agree...

Since the birth of my child & the fact that I like to ride my motorbike... I have already put all my financial details in place... I have also told my wife exactly where my collections and valuables are stored and exactly what they're worth...

It is so very important to have these details outlined...

I got a dog-eared Birds $20 the other day & thought I was lucky  :D  Actually, I'm just happy if I don't get a dirty look or escorted out of the bank  ::)  But its good to know there's other collectors recovering good stuff out there (even if its not me  :'(

Crisp $5 journey notes are out in full-force in my area.

In the last week I have been to several branches across my metropolitan region and every branch large to small has given me crisp notes generally in seqeunce. Prefixes I am running into are not new - HAD, HPK, HPS, HPU, HPW (very surprised with HPW), HPN.

I noticed a similar pattern about three months ago at which time I was getting APR, HPD, HPE, HPJ.

I have also noticed that the $20 journeys are not disappearing in any great hurry.
