I got a call from my friend who works at the local bank a block from my house saying a lady cashed in alot of old style notes and if I was interested i should come down and take a look to see if I would like any.


Heres what I got.

Assorted $2s ( most ill end up cashing in again )

Highlights are 2 76's with the seal and SN really High and Really low

1 - $2 53B series


then the last 35 are $1 silver certs. from 35A to 57B which most are 57s.


My friend said the lady was moving back to her home country of India and she didnt have a need for her collection anymore.


I figure since finds like this dont happen all the time Id share this bit of good news with you. all 10s are F to XF and $20s are F to VF. Happy day to say the least.

Today I stopped at the bank and got some cash and was handed a series 1990 $20 note in AU. This note is somewhat scarce as it marked the fist time a security thread was incorporated into the paper (the signature combos are the same as the series 1988A). This is the second old-style note I've received in the last 3 weeks, so it seems with times being tough people are spending old notes!

I have received a few old notes from my bank, a 1950 $2 a 1950 $5 note, of course about f condition. But the best note I got was from an old gentelman that alway had $1 silver certificates he spent at my work, but the best bill he spent was an $1950 ten dollar silver certificate. I bet he kept money stored in a safe despoit box for a long time!
