Not sure I'd agree with rotator, just due to the serifs, but a fabulous note regardless.

Very nice find.

That's a WOW note regardless of number. I've rarely seen any.

Okay, I'll bite: who owns that trophy note?

No quite as nice at the $500 note but just added this Binary/2 digit Radar to the collection, I have the matching Bird $5 as well

The 1935 $500 note sold for $102,000 USD

-Thanks for the update.  I followed that $500 link to the "Stacks & Bowers" auction just recently (thanks Canada-banknotes)! Considering their lofty estimates, the price seemed pretty fair for such a scarce trophy note (seldom seen denomination with decent eye appeal & very special #).   I doubt that note would have even surfaced if there wasn't such a buying frenzy for the past 2 years of Covid cabin-fever which has suddenly cooled down dramatically with our ballistic inflation.

But I must say, even if I had mucho "donairo" to drop, I doubt I'd be bidding for tough notes on S&B.  I cannot abide their archaic online bidding platform & they way they list.  Its not as bad as Lyn Knight's site but it must be a close 2nd!

I also thought the price was low considering how scare the $500 note is. I wonder if it would've brought more at a Canadian auction house. Agreed it was rather complicated to figure out the sold price but after creating an account and playing around I figured it out. Will be interesting to see what prices are like at the Geoffrey Bell auction this weekend.
