Note to Admin: please combine my other posts “huge bank haul today” and “ collection dump “ into this thread.

Today, I scored these notes.  I just missed the radar in the small run of consecutive $1s!   :D

These are great finds "Dean."  Makes one wonder if people (& some of them relatives of collectors) are trading their $1 & $2 stashed away since learning the BOC will end their legal tender status.  It's hard to believe that people would do that- it's only a few bucks- but there you go! Their loss = your gain. :D

Looks like it was used at one time to buy a car in Ontario based on the writing, cool find regardless!
That's a lot of Journey fives you picked up this time, anything special about them or were they just in good condition?

I had requests for some Journey fives from some people so I took the opportunity to take the best ones I could pick from the pile.  :)  And there was a Birds five with prefix ANU too, so I had to take that one.   :D

I kept the three Birds $2 birthday notes aside for people who might want them.

Yes, it is too bad, but it is very common to see writing like this on older banknotes.  I once picked up a load of old notes from a bank that had somebody's bank account number written on the back of every single note!   ???

That makes sense, good catch with the prefix too as it must be tough to remember all the key prefixes of multiple banknote series while you look through the notes.

Maybe not much quantity wise, but that fifty doesn't have writing on it.  :D

The $1000 notes are awfully pretty but you do know you may have trouble cashing them in right?
