  (Why are the 2003 dated BER $10s so much more valuable if there were 7.2 million printed versus only 1.4 million of the 2004 dated notes?)

Much of the 7.2M BER 2003 notes were never released into circulation while the 2004 BER which saw only 1.4M were fully circulated. If you find a 2003 hang onto it!! They are very hard to find.

March 14th finds:

One of my banks called me to pick up some pennies.  When I arrived, the teller gave me 4 bank bags worth of them!

While I was there, I asked for paper money and the teller let me pick through the pile.  I chose three journey $100s and one journey $20.  The highlight is the pair of EJZ prefix $100s.

Enjoy!

March 18th finds:  2 banks, 2 scores!

I went to 2 different banks today and both of them had paper money for me.

The first bank had 48 birds $2s, a birds $20 and some 1954 series notes.  It’s nice to receive crispy birds $2s!

The second bank had two 1975 $100s for me.

Enjoy!

March 28th finds:

I managed to pick up a few paper notes from my bank today.  While I was there, I got three boxes of dimes and some regular spending cash.  To my surprise, I got a nice $20 repeater out of the bank machine.

Enjoy!

March 30th Easter weekend coin hunting finds:

I searched through three boxes of dimes over the last couple of days and found…


69 US
2x UK 5 pence
1/2 Franc from Switzerland
10c from Bermuda
2017 commemoratives,
2021 Bluenose under sail
21 x 1968 nickel alloy dimes
And…one silver dime dated 1953!


I returned the three boxes of coins to one branch and went to a different branch to ask for old paper money.  While they had no paper, this branch did give me one more box of dimes.  Let’s see if there’s something good inside!

April 1st finds:

Lots of coins…

One of my banks called me today.  The teller said that she had a bag of pennies so I went to pick them up.  When I got there, the teller offered me two boxes of dimes.  Let’s hope that something good is in these boxes!

Enjoy!

April 2nd dime box hunt update:

I searched the two boxes of dimes that I brought home yesterday and this is what I found:

20 x US
17x 2017
13x 2021 Bluenose under sail non-colour and 7 x colour
5x 1968 nickel alloy
Nice 1971, 1973, 1975 and 1978 dimes
1962, 1964, 1965 silver and also one 1996 proof sterling silver dime!

Three out of the four silver dimes came out of one box and there was one silver in the second box.  Silver is still out there!
Enjoy!

April 3rd finds:

I went to one of my banks and the teller let me look through a gigantic stack of birds $10, $20 and $50 notes…Maybe $7000 worth.  Most of them were in awful shape, but I took the best ones.  The highlight is the lower numbered $50 FHU 0005290. Too bad it has a tiny tear in the bottom margin…☹️

The teller also gave me five customer wrapped rolls of dimes…
Wish me luck!

Dean

Update:

I searched the 5 rolls of dimes and all I got was $1 worth of US coins…

April 5th finds:

Today, I stopped at one of my banks and they let me look through the mutilated pile of about $15,000 worth of mutilated notes.

The highlight is a 1954 $20 M/E changeover prefix, even though it has writing on the back.  Honourable mention to the CDF polymer $10…Too bad it is torn… :'(

I also bought $300 in dimes…Let’s see if there’s anything good inside…

Enjoy!

April 7th:
A really interesting dime box hunt tonight…I think it was an accumulation dump.
More than half of the box was nickel alloy dimes dating from 1968-1989.
I saved all of the 1968 and 1969 dimes, plus many very nice 1970s dared dimes.  There was a nice 1971 and 1986 cameo proof and even a King Charles 2023 dime in the box, along with one UK 5 pence from 1990 and 13x US dimes.
If this was a collection dump, then the person who deposited all of these coins forgot two silver dimes, dated 1960 and 1962!

April 8th finds:
Main Branch…Mediocrity.

I went to the main branch today, and the teller only had a handful of notes for me to see.

I took the two best birds $20s in the pile, and there wasn’t much else worth mentioning.

Enjoy!

April 10th finds, part 1:
Jackpot!

Today, the teller at one of my banks sent me a message to come in because she had just received “a lot of old paper notes.”

When I got to the bank, there was over $2000 in old paper currency; mostly multicoloured series notes. 

I bought over $1500 worth of the hoard, which the teller said was brought in by a single individual.  The other notes were in bad condition and were not worth taking.  This was most certainly a collection dump.

Highlights are the 1979 $20 replacement note, the EFA series $50, ALM $1 (too bad it’s signed Crow/Bouey☹️) and the EPW series $5 (too bad it’s signed Thiessen-Crow☹️).

Enjoy!
Dean
