February 8th dime hunt results:

I searched the box of dimes I brought home yesterday and I was able to get $175 more in customer wrapped rolls today.

Here’s what I found:

Tonight’s finds from $425 worth of dimes:

$5.20 in US dimes
$35 in pre-2000 Canadian dimes
one Cuban 5 centavos 1994
one UK 5 pence, 1991
Two Canadian Silver dimes, dated 1956 and 1965.

Enjoy!

February 12th finds:

More paper…and some coins for good measure.

I managed to pick up some paper notes from one of my banks today.  The teller was also nice enough to give me $8 worth of penny rolls and some customer wrapped rolls of dimes and quarters.  The circulation issue BDH prefix birds $10 is a neat find.

Two of the penny rolls have American coins on both ends…Maybe they are all US pennies inside…

The teller said that a “lady has been bringing in pennies every week that she found from her father’s things”.  This is yet another estate clear out…

Enjoy!

February 10th coin roll hunt update:

Well, it didn’t take long to hunt all of the coins I broght home today…Because there wasn’t much to find.

12 commemorative quarters, one US quarter and two King Charles quarters plus just under $10 in pre 2000 dimes, plus only seven US dimes.

The highlight is not a coin at all…it’s an aluminum TTC transit token!

Enjoy,
Dean

I still have not come across Charles coins in the wild and will be asking at the bank from now on if they have any rolls, but ... is there possibility they are holding back mass issue of Charles coins, until they circulate all of the Elizabeth's they likely already have minted??

Also, love the token. Read something recently about vintage TTC tokens garnering a high price, but can't remember where?!?

February 15th finds:

Yesterday, I went to one of my banks because the teller said that she had “over 200 rolls of pennies”.

I ended up buying 209 penny rolls plus four 1979 $50s and one journey $50 that the teller had received that same day.

The teller said that the pennies “come from the same guy who brings them in in big batches”.

Enjoy!

February 15th finds: Part 1

I got so much stuff yesterday that I had to delay my post so I could process it all!  😀

I got an email from the main branch.  The teller said that she had “a few older bills” if I wanted to check them out.  So, off I went and while the notes were underwhelming, I took them anyway because the teller had saved them for me.

I ended up leaving with a couple of $5s, a couple of $2s and a $20…

When I got home from the main branch, I saw an email from another branch.  This second teller said that she had “some crisp older bills that just came in”.  So, off I went to the second branch.
The bills I received at the second branch were much nicer. Six birds $100s, a $50, a couple of $10 and some $5s made up this haul.

Stay tuned for part 2!

Enjoy,
Dean

February 15th finds:  part 2…Mail call!

When I got home from the second branch visit, I saw a package and an envelope waiting for me.

My contact in New Brunswick had sent me a load of bank notes and it had finally arrived!

In the box, he had sent a huge pile of 1973 $1s, 1986 $2s 1967 $1s and some nicer paper notes.

Highlights of this box include four consecutive BGH prefix notes…for Claude.  🙂

And one ratty 1973 $1 with a near-radar serial number, LS6866666.


The envelope contained three circulated birds $2s that I bought online.  I would not usually purchase circulated birds $2s but there was one note that had a written message on it.  More on this note in my other thread.

Enjoy!
Dean

February 20th finds:

Take what you can get…

I stopped in to one of my banks on the way home.  I saw the teller take some raggy old bills and a sandwich baggie of pennies from an older man in front of me.  When it was my turn, I went to the teller and asked if I could buy the mutilated notes and coins.  She asked her manager, but in the end, she only allowed me to take the paper money, which amounted to two $1 bills.

I decided to ask for customer wrapped coin rolls and the teller obliged with $50 in dimes.

Let’s see what’s inside…

Enjoy!

February 21st finds:
Banknote bonanza!

I stopped by one of my banks and the teller surprised me with a big pile of old paper notes. I was pleased to see that a large portion of the notes were 1954 series and the remainder were multicolour and birds notes.

I can’t decide what the highlight should be…It’s a tie between the 1954 $50 and the 4 digit cycle repeater 1973 $1.

Enjoy!
Dean

Just slow to post my finds from last Saturday where the Bird $50 had writing on it and it seems that it could be for a purchase of a pickup truck in Atlantic Canada where the license plates for NB, NS and NL have started with the letter C followed by two letters and three numbers. On the front side of this bill, it does have a partial bank stamp and I am betting that Dean will be calling for this note.

Also there is a Bird $20 with the last prefix before the Journey notes.

More interesting banknote, I call this one with the "Naughty Prefix" as in other threads in the Forum, there was a discussion if prefix FFG for the Vertical $10 banknotes would be issued and it has.  I wonder if the Bank of Canada would have a different position on this prefix of the 1973 $1 banknote.  I had to buy it off Ebay just to have fun with it. 

What do you think, would Bank of Canada issued this prefix today??

Enjoy the pictures, Whitenite

Probably not.
