A picture of my only $500 note.
Anyone else have this kind of stuff?

Nice $500, more affordable than the real one!  I have these wallets that have bills like $50  and $100 as the design.  Not sure if I would use it in public, but it's still cool

I own a French back and face proof pair that I bought many moons ago and overpaid for.  It's probably the closest I'll ever get to owning a circulation issue $500 note so I still have it.  You don't lose unless you sell, right?

Don't know what you paid but I doubt you overpaid for it.  Those are extremely popular even as proofs.  We'll just see what the set sells for in the coming Torex auction and you can tell us again if you still think you overpaid for yours.

Speaking of the $500 proof, the French Back Proof catalog number is JMZ in the 2019 catalog?  What does JMZ mean or is that a typo?

Good eye.  I see it is on P224 & appears on the 30th edition too.  I am wondering if it was an old annotation/code for an old auction since it lists for $2,600 in UNC (before the specimen/proofs were given a Charlton code) & it just never got flagged?  Probably should post this on the "GPM 32 revisions" thread.

Aren't $500 bills going to lose legal tender status in 2021, and if so, will they lose their collectors' value?

Makes me wonder if the Charlton Catalogue for 2021 will remove the price list for the defunct banknotes/denominations, implying they are only worth face value to redeem at a bank?

Personally I do not see this happening.

Please someone correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that a specimen note
In any denomination is not worth face value?????
(I am not talking about collectible value)

Legal tender status means next to nothing. The "big" announcement that old notes will lose their legal tender status makes no real difference to either their cashable value or their collector value. Not to worry.

Legal tender is a term that only refers to the paying of debts. As I understand it, if I owe you $500 and I choose to pay it by giving you a 500 dollar bill, you can't reject it and force me to pay a different way, because I offered you legal tender. Once it loses that status, you CAN legally tell me that I have to pay you back a different way.

That's all it means. Nothing about how much it's worth to a collector, or a bank for that matter.

Correct me if I am wrong, but since many stores, and other businesses refuse to Accept
$100 bills and some even $50 bills even though they are legal tender doesn’t agree with your comment.
This also seems to apply to paying for something with an excessive amount of
coinage.
Try going into a gas bar and give them
30 bucks in nickels... 😉 good luck

No. "Legal tender" does not have that definition in Canada. You can read the definition here, it includes nothing about anyone being required to accept "legal tender" for a payment: https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/c-52/page-1.html#h-142377
It basically means "officially approved for use", not "required for use". That's why I said that the term is essentially meaningless, because people and institutions can use what ever is mutually acceptable, whether or not it is officially approved.
