March 4th megascore!

Highlights include some nice multicoloured notes and two consecutive 1975 EHX replacement notes!

It’s too bad...the person who deposited the notes mangled them before surrendering them...I’ll bet that they were uncirculated just a few days ago... :'(

March 5th finds.

The teller from another one of my trusty banks called and said that he was going to ship out a bunch of notes.
This is what I got.
Lots of birds 50s in EF/AU condition, spanning most of the FH...series.  Someone could put together a decent prefix set!  😉

There was one birds 10, and a few journey 5s and 10s.

I have noticed a lot of high denomination notes, particularly 50s, and 100s in the last few weeks.
If anyone wants journey 50s or 100s, I have access to piles of them!  😂

March 8th find

Today, I picked up a nice birds $100 from one of my banks.  I got the chance to look through 100 bird notes before they were shipped out and this was the best one!  😂. There were no replacements or rare prefixes in the bundle.

I gave this nice teller a Tims gift card for her trouble.

March 11th finds.

Well, there truly is a first time for everything.
In the months since I have been scouring the banks for old notes, I’ve found some pretty neat stuff.  But this next find was truly shocking.

The haul was nice, and finding some nice journey 20s along with some multicoloured notes, and some 1954 notes is always satisfying, but when a teller sells you a shinplaster from 1900 for face value, how could anyone turn that down?

The teller said she never saw anything that old before and had to ask the manager whether she could accept it.  The manager had to search google to see that the note was indeed legitimate!

I guess the person who deposited the shinplaster really needed that quarter...

March 12th finds:

Another friendly bank teller called me today and said that she saved these notes for me.
She also let me search through the rest of the notes and I pulled out a decent journey $10 and a ratty HAG journey $5 among other things...

I also spotted a counterfeit multicoloured $50 in the mutilated pile and the teller was very appreciative of the information.

 :o  That's a great find, but also sad to realize that note would have been sent to be destroyed had you not gotten to it first.  Glad you were able to save it!

March 16th finds.

These notes came from one bank...the teller had 2 envelopes stuffed with $1 and $2 notes, but he said that he wasn’t allowed to give them out “because they were recalled”.

I was disappointed, but before I could leave, he asked me if I wanted to buy some other notes...
These other notes turned out to be 8 1975 $50s, in EF/AU including one really nice HB prefix note, and two EFA prefix notes.

I also managed to score two 1975 $100 notes, and 8 circulated 1979 $20 notes.

So I won’t be getting any more $1s or $2s from this particular branch, but if they keep giving me nice $50s, I’ll be there every day of the week!

March 18th finds:
More high denomination notes.

I picked up some more multicoloured notes today.  They’re not in the best shape, but they are still so much better looking than our current plastic money.

There seem to be a lot of $50 and $100 bills being turned in these days.

It’s interesting to find 2 letter prefix notes...they are at least 40 years old, because the triple letter prefix was introduced in 1981.

On March 17th, I struck a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow by getting 132 Journey banknotes from my local RBC branch and then I got a call from the local Scotiabank branch with 2 more Journey notes and a 1971 Multicoloured $10.  St. Patrick's day was kind to me.  I have attached images of these bills.  Please enjoy the pictures.

March 26th find:
A 1954 $1000 that has definitely seen better days.
I have to say that I am seeing fewer and fewer of these 1954 $1000 notes in the mutilated banknote piles at my banks.  9 out of 10 $1000 notes are the bird series notes.
