I have not seen that pair since I sold it in 2008. I wonder who owns it now ?

Philippe_B, do you know anything about the history of those notes (how they were obtained)?

These notes were found by a guy that I know who used to work for a company like Garda in the 90s. He used to pick up notes in brand new bundles from time to time. He put note 0 and 1 in a safety deposit box. He also kept notes 2 to 9 at home and he got robbed. He did not realise what he had found until he told me what he owned in 2008 and I told him that what he had was extraordinary. He gave the contrat to find a buyer.

Interesting story and history!  Can we assume the robbers did not know the notes true value and spent them but if they ever show up for sale in unc then we will know they were collector thief's  8).

Wow it's quite a luck that your friend had the idea to stash those two notes away.  At least with the 0 and the 1 the 0 looks a little less suspicious than it would on it's own.  My first thought was did it escape from the Bank of Canada museum or was it meant to be a specimen or something.  The number 1 note suggests that it was released as part of a regular issue and your story backs that up.

I would agree that any random robber would probably just spend the other notes.  Being too recent to stand out as anything special, even if the thief did notice the serial numbers they almost certainly would just try to get rid of the notes as quickly and discretely as possible and certainly not flash them around town trying to find a collector to buy them.  Probably just gave them to his dealer to buy his next rock.

It’s unfortunate that the little amount of space the few extra notes
Would have taken that they weren’t put in the box as well.
