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!

April 19th finds:
More $100 notes...

All I seem to be getting from the banks these days are hundred dollar notes...but I’ll take them because it’s important to keep those teller contacts alive!

April 22nd find:

I didn’t find this note at a bank, but I did win it in an auction.

A 1935 French $1...I have been searching for a long time to find one.

April 23rd finds:

One of my teller contacts let me buy three 1975 $100s and five crispy journey $20s...
Not too special, but I can’t turn down a call from the bank!

Good job, Dean.  You could have told us you got it from a bank and would have probably fooled me given everything else you've hauled.

April 28th finds:
Nothing too special today, but I always try to save as many multicoloured notes as I can, especially if they are two letter prefix notes.
The HA $50 dates from 1975 for sure.
And I also picked up a birds $100 in decent shape.  (see picture)
Again, only high denomination notes in the haul.  I think tough economic times are forcing people to cash in their rainy day funds from the bottom of the sock drawer...

April 28th finds...part 2!

Today got even better when I got an email from one of my banks this afternoon telling me to come in and check out what they had received...

A huge treasure trove of notes, ranging from gem UNC condition down to ratty old spenders!

Best surprise of all was an uncirculated 1973 $1 test note and, if that wasn’t enough, an uncirculated birds $2 replacement note!

Wow...I am blown away at what people are depositing at face value...

Enjoy!

April 29th finds:

Today I got a chance to revisit a branch that I had picked up some notes from earlier in the week.
The teller said that she was going to send out the mutilated bills tomorrow and asked if I wanted to take a second look.

I managed to pick out ten Journey $20s this time around.

Enjoy!
