Why pennies?

I still like pennies and plus, if a teller has some to give me, I'll always take them.

I have enough pennies to last the rest of my life and I still use them occasionally when paying in cash, just to see the looks on people's faces when they handle them.

I also leave pennies in random places when walking about like on a park bench in hopes that a kid might pick them up and start collecting coins.

July 16th finds:

Out and about today, I went into a couple of banks.
No paper money, but one Scotiabank did give me $8.50 in rolled pennies.

Here’s what I found:

$3.50 in copper cents pre 1997.  The oldest cent I found was dated 1954 and it was pretty banged up.
9 US cents

Highlights include:
A 1985 pointed 5 cent and a slightly off centre struck 2006 cent

Enjoy the pictures!  I’ve included another normal 2006 cent (right side) along side the off struck cent (left side) for comparison.

Never underestimate the lowly penny!  There are treasures to be found in these bank rolls!

Keep hunting!

August 4th:

A new, cool (digital) find!

I was browsing the NumisBids website (2019 RCNA auction, lot #371) and found the companion note to an out of register cut journey $20 that I found at a bank on December 15th, 2020.

This is my note:  AZW3543048; it's in better condition than the one for auction.

And this is the note posted on the auction site:  AZW3351047

The asking bid of $175 was not met and this note went unsold.  :(

Not earth shattering, but an interesting coincidence.

August 4th finds:

Well, after waiting for what seemed like forever, my regular bank had something for me!
I got to search through the mutilated notes and this is what I kept:

A pair of nicer sequential birds 50s,
A journey $10 with a serial number under 100,000.
A 1975 $50
And a journey $50 with slight misalignment.

Oh, and I also picked up
3 rolls of pennies…

Enjoy!
Dean

Penny roll update:  In the three rolls, there were 11 American cents, 49 copper Canadian cents and the rest were all worthless steel or zinc cents, 1997 or newer.  The oldest Canadian cent I found was dated 1964 with a bit of red on the obverse.

August 8th finds:

I went to one of my regular banks and for the first time in a long time, they had paper money for me!

I picked the following notes out of the mutilated pile today:

Five birds $2s
Three journey $20s
Three birds $10s
And one journey $10.

I turned down a lot of journey $20s and $50s and they didn’t look like anything special.  I even turned down three 1975 $100s, but they too were circulated and not worth a premium.

Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing Dean, neat finds. For me the treasure hunting aspects of more modern issues is a lot of the fun I have in collecting.

August 21st:  Purchase…Error note.

I picked up this inverted 1954 $1 note.

Enjoy!
Dean

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  This note has been determined to be a manufactured error.  Please don't make the same mistake I did and be VERY cautious when you encounter these types of notes. :'(

Hi Claude,

The note is not a legitimate error.  Don't repeat my mistake! :'(

August 25th finds:

Well, after the trauma of buying the fraudulent error note, I guess the bank note gods took pity on me because I picked up a hoard of banknotes today!  I am almost 100% certain that these notes were part of an estate distribution that was deposited into the bank because there were:

44 birds $2s, 26 of which were uncirculated but missing every other note…Somebody earlier in the thread suggested that this was a sure sign that the notes had been “doled out” amongst a group.  In this case, the pile would have been split between 2 people since I am missing every other note.  “One for you, one for me…” :D

There were also 42 uncirculated 1867-1967 notes, and 166 1973 $1s…all but one being uncirculated and in small runs of consecutive notes.

While I was at the bank, I pulled out some regular cash from the machine…and out pops a 4 digit radar $100 polymer note!  I also have the shoulder notes…Should I keep them or spend them? 

It saddens me to think that it is most likely that my collection will suffer the same fate as none of my nieces or nephews show any interest in numismatics whatsoever.   :'(

Anyway, enjoy the pictures!
Dean
