March 30th finds

Today, I got some interesting notes from two banks.

A trio of $2 bills; of course, I always take any I can find...One 1954, one nice 1986 and a pretty beat up 1974 note.  The 1974 note isn't much to look at...Until you inspect it closely.  It's a 2 digit radar note!

From bank number 2, I scored a 1969 $20, 4 x Birds $10s, a birds $5 ENA 1st prefix, a birds $20, a birds $100 and one pre security Journey $10.  A closer look at the birds $100 reveals that it is a replacement note!

It's too bad that the best two notes in this haul (The $2 radar note and the $100 replacement note) are stained and have writing all over them!  :(

They are still cool finds though!

March 30th addendum:

This note is technically not a "find" rather, it is a "save".

My friend was going to cash this 1954 note in to the bank.  Rather than see this note shredded, I bought it.

April 1st finds:
I got home late last night and was too tired to post...
Better late than never!

The finds from one bank...a bunch of journey notes, some birds notes and 20 rolls of pennies.
Nothing too special, but when a teller goes out of their way to save stuff for you, it’s a good idea to accept it.

A curious find:

I searched through the penny rolls as shown in the previous post.  Inside one of the rolls, I found this coin...
It looks like a delamination error.  The coin is tarnished, but I was wondering if this is just environmental damage...

Your thoughts are welcome...

April 5th find:

Nothing much today...
Just one birds $100...but the teller was kind enough to call me, so I bought it.

April 7th finds:

One lonely multicoloured $100 note...
There isn’t much coming from the banks these days, and what is available are generally $50s and $100 notes.  Journey $50 and 100 notes are plentiful, and birds $100s are still common in the mutilated bank note piles.

Supplies of $1 and $2 notes have seemingly dried up.  We shall see what the future brings...

April 16th finds:

After a long dry spell, one of my banks called up and said that a bunch of $100 notes came in.
I searched $3000 worth of multicolour and birds notes and decided to take these:

Two birds Replacements with hidden bpn, and three really nice 1975 $100s.

Enjoy!
