Did you keep the EET $10's or sell them? Curious on value as I have one in similar condition.

I kept both EET notes for my personal collection...

Feb 4th finds...from two banks!

The friendly teller from Bank #1 called me and said that someone deposited lots of old $100 notes.  Naturally, I went in to check it out and she had $2300 worth of 1975 $100 notes for me to inspect!
I bought the best 5 in the short amount of time I had, and asked the teller to set a few more aside for me to pick up next week.

No sooner do I return home, then bank #2 calls.  This bank had $84 in 50 cent pieces and $125 in big dollars!
When I went in, I said that I would buy them all...no questions asked.  The staff was gobsmacked that I would do such a thing!  When the teller dumped the coins to start counting, I heard the familiar “ping” that only silver can make!

I ended up with all of the nickel coins, some of which looked like they just broke out of uncirculated sets, one American half dollar, two worthless trade dollars from New Brunswick, but most importantly, $5.50 in pre 1967 silver coins, the oldest being a 50 cent coin from 1943!

Being the honest guy I am, I told the teller about the silver...but she said she was not interested in them and would rather give them to me!

All of the staff said that they will save all old coins that come in...if I promise to come right away to get them because they do not want the coins taking up space in their vault.  🙂

Happy hunting!

I am truly amazed on what you find.  Keep on posting the images as it shows what is still left in the hands of the public!

Feb 11th finds:
Today, one of my friendly banks gave me a bunch of circulated multicoloured and birds notes plus some interesting American bills including some $2 red seals, one of which is a star note!
The highlight of this haul is a birds $100 AJX with a hidden BPN!

Feb 12th finds from two banks...
It’s been a grand day so far...
Highlights of this pick up include:
1954 $20 G/W changeover (small tear in the top margin😡)
1954 modified $100 note
A nice clean 1969 $20
A 1988 $1000 note with a low serial number
A bunch of  customer rolled pennies
1991 $20 ESJ changeover and...
Two consecutive 1986 replacement notes...except somebody scrawled the number 35 on one of them!  🤬🤬🤬


The one teller said that “there’s not much today, but come by anyway...”. Then he proceeds to pull out the 1954 notes, the 1969 $20 and the consecutive FNX notes!
He has a knack for understatement...😂

Everything else came from bank #2.

Happy hunting!

Feb 19th finds:

My teller contact had these notes for me after saying that “not much came in this week.”

I will never turn down a chance to pick up some old notes...I did turn down four 1979 $20s because they were torn or had writing on them.

Feb 22nd finds from one bank.

My finds today are a mixed bag.  I always take 1954 notes and I got a $2 and a $50.
Some decent multicoloured notes and some birds notes round out the lot.
Highlights include a $2 note that is one digit away from being a radar note and a nice EET $10...but this time, it is NOT a Lawson Bouey good over. :D
My heart stopped for a second when I saw it though!

Feb 25th finds from one bank.
I decided to stop into a branch where I haven’t had much luck and they actually had a nice stash of bills today!

Unfortunately, someone decided to use a sharpie to mark up some of the $10 bills... >:(

One 1954 $2 and a 1975 $50 are the highlights of the lot today.  I never seem to be able to find 1975 $50s beyond VF condition.  I wonder why that is the case?
