April 15th finds:

Some penny rolls…and a $1000 bill to go with them.

One of my banks has been holding a $1000 bill for me for a couple of weeks.  I decided to pick it up today, because I want to continue having a good relationship with this branch.

The teller had some penny rolls, and I took them too…but seriously, I really don’t need any more pennies…

I also returned a bunch of rolled coins.  I found a grand total of $2 US, four commemorative quarters, one 2017 dime and one 1968 nickel alloy dime from $135 in rolls.


Enjoy!

April 18th finds:

Lots and lots of pennies…

I stopped by one of my banks and they had some penny rolls for me.  Since I was there and this branch no longer gives out paper money, I call this score a victory.  I also took the opportunity to pick up some rolled coins.

Stay tuned for the results!

Enjoy!
Dean

Update:
This lot contained some commemorative quarters, $2.50 in US quarters, $1.40 in US dimes,
$2.50 in nickel alloy quarters, but the highlights are:

One Australian 10c from 1981
Malaysian 5 sen from 2021
East Caribbean States 10c 2004
UK 5 pence 2015
Five King Charles 2023 quarters and one 2023 dime.
Two nice 1991 dimes
Four 1968 nickel alloy dimes
One 1969 dime
One nice 1989 dime

April 20th coin hunting finds:
Silver everywhere!

I went back to the same bank where I got the dime box full of 1968s last week.  They obliged me with another box and boy, this one paid out too!  I’m sure this was an accumulation dump.

I also grabbed 10 rolls of quarters just for fun.  Here’s what I found:

Lots of commemoratives
$4.20 in US clad coins
One UK 5 pence 2004
One Netherlands25 cent 1976
Lots of 1968 nickel alloy dimes
King Charles 2023 quarters and dimes.
One 2024 King Charles dime (the first one of the year for me!)
and lots of nice shiny vintage dimes.
Best of all, Six Canadian silver dimes (including one 1947 maple leaf) and one US 90% silver 1961 Philadelphia.

Enjoy!

April 26th finds:

2 banks, 2 scores!

I visited 2 banks on my way home today.  The first bank had no paper notes, but the teller said she had some US quarters that she would sell to me at par.  So I got $18 US for $18 Canadian dollars.

At the second bank, the teller offered me five birds $1000 bills.  Unfortunately, they were all VG/F and not worth keeping.  She also had $8.50 in big nickel dollars and 50c pieces and seven rolls of pennies.

Funny enough, the most interesting finds were in the regular cash I took out of the bank machine…

A 3 digit radar note, HCK 5799975
A heavily circulated HCB prefix note…Unfortunately not an insert note.
And,
This peculiar INH prefix note with what looks to be missing ink on both the blue background and also missing black ink on the serial numbers.  Any comments on this note are appreciated.  What could have caused this?

Enjoy!

April 29th finds:
I have been feeling under the weather for the past few days and have not visited my usual banks.  I did however stop by my local bank this afternoon to pick up a few rolls of dimes.

Unfortunately, there was nothing great in these rolls, only a 2023 and 2024 King Charles pair of dimes were worthy of mentioning.  I didn’t expect much from only $75 worth of coins, but that’s the nature of coin roll hunting. 

Enjoy!

Hi Dean,

Wondering if that kind of damage could be caused by a note being "stuck" in a cash dispenser or counting machine and being "pulled out" by the user?  Just a guess.  :-\

Hope you're feeling better.  :)

Cheers, Breanna

May 11th:  So many finds this week…

I guess spring has officially arrived, and people are cleaning out their closets and drawers…and cashing in old paper money!

I could not believe the volume of finds this week…Every single day, a bank would call me to check out some old bills.  Five different banks yielded a pile of banknotes, most of which are well circulated, but there are a few standouts, including:

Some nice older US notes, even a red seal $2!
Lots of 1954 series notes…Highlights being the very nice $50 and the $1000, both signed by Beattie-Coyne!  It’s too bad that someone wrote their name and bank account number on it.  🤬

A 1979 $20 replacement 5100 note.

You just never know what is still out there…

Enjoy!

May 14th finds:

Party like it’s 1979!

I went to one of my banks today and the teller gave me some 1979 $20s.

I decided to press my luck and buy some dime rolls to go with the paper notes!

Enjoy!

May 16th finds:

Two banks, two scores!

I visited two banks today and I managed to score a few paper notes.  It’s amazing what you can get if you know the right people.

Enjoy!

May 17th finds:

I stopped by one of my banks on the way home yesterday.  I was able to get a handful of paper notes.  Nothing really special about this lot, but it’s important to keep the teller connections alive.

Enjoy!
