May 28-30 finds:

I have done some coin searching as well as some banknote pickups this week.  What follows is a summary of my finds.

One bank gave me some coin rolls and a couple of $2 notes.  Out of the dime rolls came two silvers and a bunch of East Caribbean 25c coins…

The nickel rolls yielded tons of US nickels and a nice pile of pre 2000 Canadian nickels.

Enjoy!

May 31st finds:

I went to a branch that I haven’t visited in awhile and managed to convince the teller to give me a journey $20 and $100 note plus 21 multicolour $10s!

She even had six baggies of 50 pennies that she let me have.

I figured with the luck I had, I would ask for rolled coins and the teller gave me a box of nickels, and for the first time ever, the box of nickels contained two rolls of dimes!

May goes out with a bang…

Enjoy!

June 17th finds:

It has been awhile since I have found anything but notes sometimes appear in bunches.

Today, I picked up some nicer birds $20s and $50s and some circulated 1969 $20s.

The highlight is the small group of ESJ prefix changeover $20s, signed Bonin-Thiessen.

Enjoy!

June 18th finds:

Main Branch Madness!

It's been awhile since I visited the Main Branch.  Today, I got a chance to go down and see what they had to offer.

I picked up a bunch of really crispy journey $20s and some nicer Journey $10s.  One nice Journey $5 rounds out today's haul.

Highlights include:

One FEE prefix $10 printed in 2002.
One FEN prefix $10 (short run)
and FEH 9348702 Sheet replacement note.
A nice bunch of BTT prefix $10s (No errors though.)
BES Short run prefix.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the picture Dean.

I don’t know if it’s just my bad luck but I’ve been looking for a 2002 FEE with double full circles forever it seems. Anyone reading this post have one?

Is it just a harmless prefix-kix or do I live for that next prefix-fix?

BES was not a short run, the one you want to look for is BET which only had a small run of 920,000. Which was the final prefix for the 2005 10$ series on the BABN side.

June 22nd finds:

I visited a branch that I have not been to in awhile.  I initially asked the teller for rolled coins and banknotes.  She said at first that she had some $1s and $2s, but that she was not sure if she could give them out.  The manager overheard the conversation and gave the teller the go ahead to sell me the notes.

To my surprise, there were some decent 1954 $2s, and $1s in the bunch and a couple of nicer 1967 $1s, but most of them are low grade.

Highlights include the PA prefix 1973 $1 and the nicer 1954 $1s and $2s.

Oh, and there are a couple of BG— prefix birds $2s for Claude…

Enjoy!

June 24th finds:

One of my banks had a small stash of notes for me today.

Nothing too special here, but it is still nice to be finding stuff again!

Enjoy,

June 25th:
Three for three!

I visited three banks today.  This is what I found:

Bank #1:  I followed up on an email I received from the teller saying that she had some old notes.  I was pleased to claim a birds $1000, a 1973 $1 and a nicer journey $10.  The $1000s are getting harder to find at the banks…

Bank #2: I lucked out here because I hadn’t visited this branch in awhile.  The teller let me have some 1973 $1s and some birds $2s along with a nicer birds $50 and a 2017 $10.

Bank #3:  There was no old paper money at this branch, so I changed tactics.  I got $50 in customer wrapped dime rolls and five regular $10 notes.  On closer inspection, one of the $10s is a 3-digit radar note, with radar front and back position numbers (44/44) and also a radar prefix, FFF 0210120

I’d say it was a good day!

Enjoy!

June 26th finds:

$50s anyone?

One of my banks called and said that a bunch of $50s came in.  I decided to take two crispy consecutive notes, one with a teller stamp on it and one replacement note, FMI 9418566

Enjoy!

June 28th finds:

I made a cold call to a bank that I have never visited before and asked for old paper money.  The teller said that she “just received these notes today” and offered them to me so I accepted.

Nothing special in this lot, but when a teller offers you old notes, you should take them, especially if you are searching new branches.

Enjoy!

July 4th finds:

Paper banknotes have once again dried up at my banks so I had to settle for hunting some customer wrapped coin rolls which in Toronto are also becoming hard to obtain.

Tonight’s finds from $100 in nickels and dimes.  Highlights include:

Two 2000p nickels, a 1942, eight 2023s, and a really nice 1963 that looks like it was broken out of an uncirculated set.  And best of all, I found a dime stuck in one of the nickel rolls!😀

Enjoy!
