February 19th Oshawa Coin A Rama finds, part 2:

These two 1954 $20s were found in dealers’ junk piles.

The first note is stamped Oct 6 1965 and the second note is stamped Oct 7 1959…Almost exactly 6 years apart!

The 1937 $10 is ragged, but someone named “E Towsend” signed the note in the top margin.

Enjoy!

February 19th Oshawa Coin A Rama finds, part 3:

This group of notes was interesting because of the written messages or autographs.

The 1937 $1 is dated Jan 11 1947 and it is signed by
Sam Feigen
Steve Swotal and
Jane Maiod?

The Japanese fractional notes were particularly interesting:

The first note is signed on the back:

Yogasuka (sic), Japan 9/11/45
50- Sin (sic)
One thing is for sure…This soldier couldn’t spell and it shows the tendency of Western military personnel to corrupt the spelling and pronunciation of foreign place names because the actual place is called Yokosuka which is the site of a large US naval base.

The second note is a “sweetheart note”, possibly written by an Allied soldier to a Japanese girlfriend?

It reads: “I love you, Sweetheart” on the back and
“Love Charlie” on the front.

Enjoy!

February 24th TOREX pickups:

I went to TOREX yesterday and I found these two 1954 devil’s face $20s in a dealer’s inventory.

The first note is stamped JUL -5 1956.

The second note is partially stamped “…12 1957”.
If the date format was month/day/year, then it was stamped on the 12th day of a month in 1957.

Enjoy!

March 18th find:

I picked up a worn birds $20 today because it had a legible partial bank teller stamp on it.

It reads:

04362-003

A quick search reveals that this transit number belongs to

The Royal Bank of Canada
602 Queen St.
Sault Ste Marie, Ont.
P6A 2A4

Pretty neat, eh!

Enjoy!

This birds $100 has a message written on it.  I have no idea what it says…

Enjoy!

April 10th finds:

I was taking a closer look at all of the notes I got from the bank today.

One of the 1979 $5s has “Hi there” written on the back two times and a smiley face.

Additionally, I received a polymer $20 in my regular cash withdrawal that has a partial teller stamp on it that reads: “The Toronto Dominion Bank”.  Unfortunately, it is impossible to determine a transit number from this stamp.

Enjoy!

May 5th:
Toronto Coin Expo pickups, Part 1.

I got these notes from the Toronto Coin Expo on the weekend.

This multicolour $50 has a nice date stamp on it…Nov 1 79 Toronto.

This 1979 $5 has the pink stamp of death from The Royal Bank of Canada Toronto, Ont.  Unfortunately, the branch name is very hard to read and so is the date.  🙁

This 1954 $1 has a nice lear message written in ink: “June 22-25 1958 Ottawa.”

Enjoy!

May 5th:
Toronto Coin Expo finds, Part 2:
This 1954 $1 has a phone number written on it and the name “Diae” (Possibly “Diane”?”

These 1973 $1s are neat.  One note has a partial teller stamp but there’s not enough information to get a location.

One note has the name “Marie” written in black sharpie.
One note has the name “Mary B.” Written on the front and back of the note.
The last note has dark circles drawn around the Queen’s eyes.

Enjoy!

May 11th:

Why do people do this???🤬

A perfectly good 1954 $1000…Signed Beattie-Coyne.  Somebody just has to write their name on it along with their bank account number.

It’s as if the person is saying “I don’t trust the bank teller to do her job…Here is my account and my name…This money belongs to me!”

Enjoy!

May 16th find:

Homesteading…in 2018?

This journey $50 I found today has some curious writing on it.

On the front, someone wrote:
March 10 2018 under some unintelligible handwritten name.

On the back, it says “Back at 222 Springwater Road” “Family Homestead”.

Maybe I am mistaken on the address…Any opinions?

Enjoy!
