I'm the lucky one who found that note a few months ago, I was very excited.  ;D

Philippe, did you find this note in circulation? If so, I find it amazing that it would have taken 30 years of circulating before someone would have noticed it. Perhaps the high face value is what kept it going... You have quite some luck indeed. I was only so lucky as to find it for _sale_.

Hi Harry,

I found this note at my bank when an old lady came to deposit about fifty 1975 $100 note that were in her safety deposit box since at least 15 years. On these 50 notes I found the solid radar and I found two AJX Lawson Bouey (one Fine and one Fine-VF). There was also one AJX Crow Bouey in VF but I felt taking the first three notes was enough. This story may seem hard to believe but it is true. I sold all three notes on Ebay to members of this site. This was the luckyest day of my life.

I also think the most amazing thing about the solid radar is that I took 30 years before someone noticed the serial number, since this note has been in at least 100 wallets during those 30 years.

I'm glad to know that my note found a good home. Take good care of it. ;)
