Hello CPMF,

I’m new to the forum but have been a bank note collector for many years.  This forum is a great place to share some information with other collectors and put out a request.

I have a couple of 1954 Beattie Rasminsky $2 bank notes missing back plate numbers.  They both have the prefix K/R.
So far my list of all K/R notes is only 31 (29 with BPN and 2 No BPN).    I have been recording the face plate and back plate numbers with each serial number to help in defining the range.  Others may this information helpful.

The internet has been a great source for detailed images in my search for these $2 bank notes. However, this very small sample size leaves large gaps in serial numbers and makes predictions of ranges pointless. It is time to get more collectors involved. Please take a look in your collections and report back to the forum with K/R prefix serial numbers, face plate and back plate numbers.

Happy New Year CPMF!

My register of 1954 $2 notes with the K/R prefix is up to 42 - 40 with back plate numbers and 2 with no back plate number.

I have talked to other collectors who are looking and nobody else has found any... yet.

I dont see any number either. Very interesting find! Never heard of any 1954 $2 notes of this variety. Only in the $1 notes there are several prefix that are missing their Front Plate Number. Some of those prefixes only came to light within the last decade. Makes me wonder what else we have yet to discover in the 1954 series.
