February 24th find and coin roll hunt:

Yesterday, I picked up a box of dimes and seven rolls of quarters from the bank.
I withdrew some $5 notes from the bank machine and to my surprise, I received a radar note!  INP 5541455

Yesterday’s finds from one box of dimes and seven rolls of quarters.
18 US dimes, 9 commemorative quarters, $37.10 in pre 2000 Canadian dimes including a really nice 1983 and 1979 dime.
There were only three commemorative dimes in the entire box…only one colour 2021.
And of course, one silver dime dated 1963!

Enjoy!
Dean

February 26th finds:
As one door closes, another one always opens.

Today I made a “cold call” to a bank I had never visited before.  It was right before closing time and the teller was very accommodating when I asked him for old paper money.  This was only a couple of days after I was stonewalled by one of my banks that used to give me notes and coins all the time and recently has refused to give me anything; even rolls of coins.

The teller went through his stack of about $15,000 in mutilated notes and gave me nine $10s a $50, a few 1973 $1s and a birds $1000.

This is the first $1000 note I have managed to pick up in a very long time.  They are definitely getting harder to find at the banks.

I also managed to get $50 in customer wrapped dimes…We’ll see if there’s anything good inside…

Enjoy!

Update:  Dime roll hunt results:


$3.70 in pre 2000 Canadian dimes
two 2017 commemoratives
two 2021 Bluenose under sail (one coloured).
nine US dimes
six King Charles 2023 dimes
two UK 5 pence 1992 and 2005
one 1/2 Franc from Switzerland, 1994
a 10 cent coin from Trinidad & Tobago 2007
a 50 Peso coin from Colombia, 2015
No silver this time, but a trip around the world instead!

February 29th finds:
Leap year luck…

Today, I stopped by one of my banks to pick up a box of dimes that I had pre ordered.  I asked the teller if any new bills had come in and she let me look through the mutilated pile.

I chose a few notes, including a nice birds $50 and a couple of $2s.

Stay tuned for the coin roll hunting results…

Enjoy!

February 29th:

I entered the notes I found today into the SNDB.  The journey $10 was a new low, but the journey $50 came back as being previously entered into the database.  Maybe I entered it…or somebody else did.

Dean, you entered AHF 9927023 at datetime 2024-02-16 08:16:06.  It would be interesting to know if the same note has been found by more than one member, though.  By the birthday paradox, it would actually be quite likely to happen.

March 6th finds:

I stopped by a branch today to pick up some coin rolls.  I asked if they had any old coins and the teller said that they had some 50 cent coins.  Of course, I said that I would take them all.

Imagine my surprise when the teller counted out $27.50 in coins with $26.50 being silver!

Originally, the head teller said there was $34 in 50 cent coins, but I think he might have kept a few aside for himself.  😀

You just never know what is hiding at the bank…

Enjoy!

March 10th 2024 finds:

I searched through $275 worth of dimes and $50 in quarters today.

Highlights include:

Turkish 5 Kurus, 2015
UK 5 pence, 2001
Barbados 10 cents, 1996
21 x US dimes
2017 commemorative dimes
10 x 2021 commemoratives, 2 colourized.
Two TTC tokens
One silver dime dated 1957

It’s funny that the TTC transit tokens are actually worth more ($6.70) than the silver dime I found. :D

Enjoy!

March 11th finds:
Main Branch Madness!

I paid a visit to the main branch on March 11th and the teller had some goodies for me.

Highlights are the PA $1 note (too bad the corner is missing!😢) and the crispy journey $10s.  (Why did somebody have to fold them down the middle???😢)

I also got some penny rolls and some 50c pieces, plus a couple of black toonies and a Japanese 2000 yen note.

Enjoy!

March 12th finds, part 1:

I decided to go to a different area of the city to prospect for notes and coins…And it paid off!

The first bank I visited was hesitant to give anything up at first, giving me the stock line “We send all mutilated bills out as soon as we get them”.  I explained why I do this in greater detail to the teller and after further conversation, she went to the cash office and retrieved a small bunch of paper money for me.  I took it all, since this was the first time I had received anything from this branch.

The highlights are the 1954 $10 and the BER (2004) journey $10.  Too bad it is a high numbered Jenkins/Dodge signed BER note.  (Why are the 2003 dated BER $10s so much more valuable if there were 7.2 million printed versus only 1.4 million of the 2004 dated notes?)

Enjoy!

March 12th finds, part 2:

I went to a second branch just down the road from the first one and I went in and asked the teller for old notes and coins.  The teller obliged with $42.50 in nickel dollars and 50c coins.  She went to the cash cage and let me look through the paper money in the mutilated pile.  There wasn’t much, but I chose a birds $5…the teller then said “oh, there’s a $1000 bill.  Do you want it?” 

Of course, I took it!  Boy, am I glad that I have unlimited transactions on my bank accounts!

Enjoy!
