Great job on the $50 and the $100!  What's the note that's cut off at the top?

I have found most notes and traded/bought for others.  I only posted the "rarer" notes for now.  I have probably found at least 50 notes consisting of low serials, replacements, radars etc so far in 2019 (most circulated from banks or new ones from bricks and casino). 
One of my favorite finds was two years ago, a $100 with solid 8 from the Ottawa casino. 
I have attached a few more mention-able notes (ladder radar and a run of 12 consecutive low serials in January).  Feel free to add your own notes!

Wow: that is an amazing find.  I actually got a solid 8 in change about 5-6 years ago (I believe).  Posted it here too.  Not very nice condition but nevertheless all eights (so keeper) & in change (not from a large bank search).     

The $10 ascending/descending ladder radar is a tough one too. Great collection of very collectible numbers. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, it's not a pristine condition ladder but it's better than being returned to BoC someday to be destroyed.  ;D

-I have searched several thousand notes and have only seen a couple "near ladders" where 1 number disqualifies it- so trust me- you would be crazy to throw it back it into the wild. If there is one good thing about searching a large run of notes- it makes one appreciate how difficult it is to find special numbers today (which you get).  I'm also fairly certain there are people out there (insiders at banks/casinos) who have far greater access to massive numbers (thus making it much easier to pluck out a special number) but if you're just a regular guy (with limited access) it can be a very long haul before one comes across anything special.

Incredibly jealous of the GHF5000000 and FKC7777777. The fact that they are fifties and hundreds makes it extra special.

I've found a few good things lately, the best ones being a BSW back in March and a fifty radar/rotator 8212128.

Nice find with the $20 BSW.  I have not found one yet.

"Beatrix" If you turn the fifty radar upside down does it still read 8212128?  A "2" doesn't look like a "5" upside down (the "1" has serifs too- so they cannot rotate and appear the same).  The thing is- the "2" does not look like a "2" so it cannot be a rotator.

I was corrected when I thought my "9696969" 2 digit radar was a rotator (but it reads 6969696) or a completely different number upside down.  Your "8212128" is still a great find though.

A "rotator should look exactly the same upside down or the right way (such as 0888880 or 6998669) and other combos which look the same when rotated upside down (using 0, 8, 9 & 6).  The 6 and 9 are a bit tricky as they must be on the ends (or flipped in the middle) so they'll appear the same when rotated.

After ten years of searching, one of my holy grails finally graces my wallet. Condition is pretty ratty, but I really don't care, it's in one piece.



Considering I only started seriously searching 3 years ago, well past the end of the paper bills' general lifetime, I always thought I missed my chance. Never say never though! (too much to ask for a BTV sometime soon?)

Ironically enough I got it from a bank branch that always says no if I ask to take their paper bills. Fortunately for me they didn't notice them in the pile today. I also snagged some sequential HPD randomly mingled with plastic bills in between - very curious what the life of those bills looked like.

Ha ain't that the truth! Still looking for my first solid and million - four 6/7s including a 0999999, so I'm getting there.

@wagnert Thank you so much for the offer, but I'll pass. With a few exceptions, my enjoyment comes from the thrill of the hunt and finding bills on my own that would have never been found otherwise.
