I went to the bank yesterday and the teller gave me the following notes:

1 x 79 $20 Thiessen/Crow
2 x 86 $5 (1 B/T and one T/C)
2 x 89 $10 (1 B/T 1 T/C)

It was nice to see that some tellers are willing to accommodate collectors...

Hi fellow collectors,

My friendly bank teller told me they just got a large deposit of old bank notes.  Here is the stash.   This is the first time I received a 1937 series bank note.   Just paid face value for the notes from an RBC Branch in Vancouver.



Surprisingly, I noticed there were 39 notes of a 1973 $1 notes, that came from a collectors sheet of $1 bills.  They even had the curve from being in the tube.  Someone cut the sheet of notes to deposit them!   Here is the photo of these $1 bills.

  I wish the tellers at my bank would save notes for me, too bad they have strict orders to cull anything that is not the latest issue.  :(

  But enough about me that is an amazing find coinsplus!  That 1937 note just goes to show you can find anything in circulation!  :D  And its too bad that uncut sheet is now cut up but I'm wondering because you found 39 notes from the sheet.  A sheet consists of 40 so I wonder what happened to that missing note... >:(

Who ever accumulated those notes must have had an eye for serial numbers, just noticed that above the 1937 $1 there are two $5 and the one has the serial 5211125, and the other while not being anything too special has 1234567 all mixed up, could just be me but I would have saved that sort of thing as well, even is not overly valuable.

Nice find, would love to see more of that sort of thing happen for collectors.

Found a 2-digit radar in Timmy's change today. Unfortunately I would say it grades around an F. Nevertheless, doing some rough math:

There are 630 2-digit radars per prefix and roughly 26 prefixes being reported for polymer 5's (some of which might be short-run, etc.). That means there's approximately 16,380 of these out there (and likely less). I consider that a lucky find.

Rescued these notes from an RBC branch...friendly teller told me they received the notes from a customer for deposit.  FV was $146.

The 1937 $1 would grade G. All those years gone by, and just worth $1 today. Could have done a lot with that dollar back in the 40's.

Here is the latest find from the bank.

It was interesting to see a lot of $20 Lawson/Bouey notes in relatively decent condition.



I love the RCMP $50 notes.

Nice find!  You have recovered quite a few nice notes from the 70's and earlier (from your branches).  They must like you!

These were fairly easy to come by in that grade well beyond the end of that series. It was the easiest signature to find in that series and I even managed to get one from the bank machine in AU grade 20 years after its circulation. Its no real surprise that there are still a fair amount of these notes still circulating today.

@walktothewater:  Yes, lucky to have a few contacts at several branches.   Buying them Starbucks gift cards help, and taking them out during their coffee breaks works, too.

@JB-2007:  Yes, they are still around, but to see so many at once is a surprise.  Having these notes and seeing them altogether in this batch, I felt like I've travelled back in time to the 80's and early 90's.  Brings back a lot of good memories!

Yes finding one or two is not unusual but too see what you got is quite a nice find today in 2015 when these notes with Lawson-Bouey hit circulation back in Dec 1978. 37 years ago!  Too bad they never went much above face in circulated condition.
