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.

No worries, I thought I would offer.  The chance of finding a BTV was difficult when the journey series was in circulation, now trying to find one since most journey notes are out of circulation will be almost impossible through a bank search.  I do wish you the best.  I understand the trill of finding notes since I look through alot.

-That $5 APM is an amazing find (especially now!). I looked for that as well as the BTV quite aggressively shortly after their release and only found 3 APM (1 Fine & 2 rags) & 1 or 2 BTV's (both less than VF).   

Speaking of hard to believe.  I was looking for  M/C HBG (when we all thought they weren't going to be released) and found an old BC-62bA 7M range HOH insert in a bundle of plastic.  Could not believe my eyes (& sold it a few years ago for $50 before the book adjusted its price.)

I just scanned the note this afternoon (attached).  There are no tears or anamalies with some circulation; depending on the grader, I would say Fine to Very Fine condition.

Most notes are for sale if the right offer was received : )

Nice find. I have a few around that range, 127, two 141s, 200, 245 and 246 w/same prefix. Sadly no two-digits yet.

Nice low serial. You can attach a picture directly to your post.  I find the occasional circulated low serial looking through my regular banks cash stock searches.

If it makes you feel better, it wasn't sequential. Right in the middle of a pile of assorted junk.

Well, rest assured I got my solid fair and square. It is in quite good shape as far as circulated finds go, HCJ22 is a very new serial range that is only starting to become common in my finds so it couldn't have travelled far before meeting me. Certainly not mint but much closer to it than most.

-Exceptional find Beatrix!

I cannot believe the shape it is in.  The one solid I got in change (years ago) was in VG-F.  Actually never found one in either brick nor bundle searches. That looks between EF & AU which is phenomenally fortunate in anyone collector's book.

Incidentally, (& I really hate to be a stickler on this) but the RCM mint coins and the CBN company prints paper money.

06 which matches up with the mathematically predicted number.

Plastic bills don't have year of print unfortunately, only the series issue date which is always 2013 for that series of 5.

The solid 2 is a nice rare note and still a nice collection piece regardless of grade.  I found a bc-69bA 200 mintage insert today (amoung other notes).  I solid F-12 with no anomalies.

FKZ is a short run  ??? I thought only EKZ was a short run.

Also how is 7770007 a repeater of any kind?

I like the 007 aspect of it.

I thought it was a shorter run but I I just checked the database and it's not.  It's technically a repeater with the 7 coming back again.  I know it's not a strong repeater and might very well become a spender.  I lmay post some more exciting notes once I get them out of storage and take a picture.

I know a lot of people can’t get bricks
For one reason or another but I
Keep telling them just get a bundle
Or even a stack
You never know what you can find and
It costs you nothing but a little time
And sometimes the payoff can be great
You never know what you will find if
You don’t even try

-Awesome find "Wagnert"

Wife found this a few weeks ago (I don't want to hear another peep from you "Friedsquid!") :D . It's a bit ratty but pretty cool just from change (not a big bundle/brick search).

Thanks, another cool and rare factor: it's a signature changeover.  I am not sure if anyone had picked up on that since no one mentioned that.  I find all my circulated and new notes in Ontario, mostly around ottawa.

That is a nice radar and birth year note walktothewater.  I have a 0002000 in the journey series in UNC.

It's good to see some life on the forum again!
