April 24th finds part 1:
Lots and lots of paper…

I picked up a huge load of better paper notes today.
I was pleasantly surprised to see some 1954 notes and a couple of 1973 $1 replacement notes and a journey $50 short run FMJ prefix note.

Sorry Claude…no variety in the “B”s…☹️

Enjoy!
Dean

April 26th finds:

Take what you can get…

Today, I stopped in at one of my regular banks.  The pickings were slim; only two journey $20s and a US $2 with a corner missing.  ☹️

I did notice some rolls of customer wrapped dimes, so I bought them.
I hope there are some treasures in the rolls…

Enjoy,
Dean

**Update**
The dime rolls did not yield much.  Approximately two rolls of keepers; including 13 US dimes, and of the nickel composition coins, the oldest were two 1968 dated examples.  There was only one 1992 dime and two 2017s in $100 worth of dimes.

There were 13 double dated 2021 dimes but only two sailing (non colour) bluenose dimes.

April 27th finds:
Main Branch Madness!

I got a whole whack of vintage notes from my main branch today, including some more US $2s!

I will comment on some specific bills in my other thread…
Bank stamps galore today!

May 1st finds:

Take whatever the bank offers…

I got these circulated notes from the bank yesterday.
The birds $2s in the BBA, BBB and BBN series have “big Bs” and the BGH series $2 has “small Bs”.
There’s also an AUJ series $2…signed by Crow and Bouey.

Enjoy!

May 2nd finds:

I stopped by one of my banks today and the friendly teller gave me some paper notes and some rolled pennies!

The highlight is that two of the $5s are HAE prefix changeovers, but unfortunately, they are the common Jenkins/Carney signed notes. ☹️

Enjoy!

May 2nd:  Addendum

On closer inspection of the HPJ journey $5 today, I noticed that the varnish on the back of the note exhibits a dotted pattern, like a sewn seam on a piece of clothing.

This pattern goes around the edge of the blue area on the top left of the note and along the bottom margin on the left side in the dark blue area.

Has anybody else noticed this?

Hi,
In the past in journey series I found notes with a ''thin'' paper,I call it thin but I think it's because the notes have no varnish?When I touch it the paper are not rigid.I found some notes with the same texture on touch.
In 5$ the prefix I have is:AOF8733711-6361251,HOW0471694-0260515-8655865-2541278,HPA5399631,HOZ1819844.
In 10$:BTG0049431-0011682
In 20$:ERM6596410
About 50$ and 100$ I never be able to have a sealed brick.
And like Dean said I have one who have stripes cause by the varnish was not dry at the back when  it past under caster the stripes are easy to see.It's 5$ APJ7344962 it found in sealed brick.
Thats what I think?
Sorry for my english I'm a french canadian,I hope you understand.
Thank you.
Claude

May 6th finds:

I decided to stop by a bank in downtown Toronto where I have never been successful in retrieving any paper notes.

I asked the teller for paper money and he introduced me to the head teller who happily opened up the mutilated note envelope.

I got quite a large selection on a visit where I was expecting nothing!

Persistence pays off… never give up!

Enjoy!

On closer inspection of the journey $50, it looks to have some offset ink on the back.

Is this worth keeping?

Scraping the bottom of the barrel…

Sometimes you just take whatever you can get, even if it is just a handful of coins…

Enjoy!

May 11th finds:

Main Branch Madness!

I lucked out today.  The main branch provided me with a bounty of paper money; most of which were 1971 $10s!

Enjoy,

May 12th finds:
2 banks, 2 scores…you guessed it…lots of $2s!

I stopped by two different banks today.  The first bank teller gave me three US $2s and a whole bunch of nickel 50 cent pieces, nickel dollars and pennies.

The second bank teller was kind enough to give me six birds $2s.  She said that “an older client came in and deposited them”.  She promised to alert me if any more old paper money comes in.

Enjoy!

May 19th finds…Friend finds from New Brunswick!

My friend in New Brunswick sent me these notes and I received them today.

The highlights of the lot were some nice crispy $1s and $2s as well as a very nice 1975 $100 and best of all, a 1979 Lawson/Bouey replacement note.

Honourable mentions go to the EIJ $20 with serifs, the EVD $20 with no BPN and the FHG $50 with the small Fs.

Enjoy!
Dean
