Hello slackjack,

I keep some of what I find and sell the rest.  Occasionally, I might return the odd note if I don’t sell it, but I keep all multicolour series and earlier notes.

December 22nd:  Possibly the biggest haul of my life...

Last week, a contact of mine from the East Coast sent me a frantic message.  He said that when he went to the bank to pick up a few boxes of coins for coin roll hunting that the head teller told him that "an old lady just came in and deposited $60,000 in old bank notes."

When I asked him what there was, he said "all sorts of notes; and there is a run of 50 x 1954 $1000s that has never been circulated!"

Well, that was it; I asked my contact to buy as much as he could.  The transactions took place over two days and I was able to score some of the old lady's hoard.

Highlights include:

21 x consecutive Lawson-Bouey 1954 $1000 notes plus one single UNC 1954 $1000
(My contact actually purchased 32 out of the 50 available notes and I bought 22 of them from him.)

1937 $1s, 5, 10 and $20
A whole bunch of multicoloured and 1954 series $1s, $2s, $5s, $10s $20s $50s and $100s; many of which are in high grades,
A high grade 1972 *SB asterisk note and a circulated *HB asterisk $50
An ADX Birds replacement $10
A circulated birds $5 3 digit radar
and a circulated 1954 $1 with no serial numbers.  The note is in heavily circulated condition but the microprinting on the background is still there.  **I am fully aware that these errors can be faked**

*Full disclosure*  I did not find this hoard myself and I did pay my contact a "finder's fee" for saving these notes from the shredder.


Enjoy,
Dean

December 23rd finds:

Well, this find is nowhere near the mega score I published yesterday, but today, a friendly teller at my local bank gave me five circulated birds $2 notes.

Back to reality!   :D

January 10th finds:

I picked up 22 uncirculated 1973 $1s from the bank today.
No repeated prefixes in this lot makes me think that somebody deposited a collection.

Enjoy!
Dean
