Re: $2 Bill 1986 BUR Prefix

Your $2 note is worth $2.

BUR is a common prefix. You will find it listed in Charton's Cdn Government Paper Money Catalogue.

Yours is in such poor shape that I would return it to the bank unless you want a copy for the 1986 - $2 bird series.

Re: 1979 5$ Test Bill

Hello EJG, Sorry, the note is definitely not an EF or VF. It is possibly an F or at worst VG. Can't tell until it is actually seen and handled. You do have a potentially rare note even as a VG or F. I must admit that I am debating the merits of having it graded. Where are you located? Depending wher...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

Hi sbowman, Do you think you will have an opportunity to get to the Edmonton coin show March 10 and 11? I would definitely like to see that note. I know some others there would also be interested in seeing it. Did you get the PM I sent in January. How's the snow up north. Tons in and around Calgary.

Re: Lucky find 1870 Quarter

Thanks for your input Bill and Coinguy. I think it is actually a fake. I downloaded the linked picture, enlarged the photos and compared them side by side. The things I noted are: - the indentation at the bridge of the nose - C (in cent) is at an angle - the shape of the E and it's centre don't seem...

Lucky find 1870 Quarter

A friend of mine came across an interesting/amazing find (if it's real). Approx 2 weeks back he went to a MacDonald's in a Walmart store and ordered a hamburger. He paid with a bank note and got some change back. One of the coins felt different so he had a look and then showed it to his wife. She wa...

Re: Is this quarter worthy of collecting? Your opinion is welcome.

I would keep it as a unique piece to show to friends and collectors.

It might be worth something to a collector. The problem is just finding the right person. I just don't know what value to put on it.

Re: 1964 Dime

I think you have it right Richards. That Queens head started in 1990 Last year a friend and I thought we had a rare mule. We showed it to a few people. George Manz from Regina showed us it was a fake mule. Apparently someone had taken two coins, cut them in half and moulded them together. This could...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

Hi Showman, Thank you for posting the pictures. To give an accurate grade a knowledgeable person would actually have to have the note in their hands. Fortunately you took great pictures that make it easier to give a reasonable grading. I was able to blow it up for considerable clarity. Unfortunately...

Re: 1975 bills

Sorry to disappoint you but the values quoted are way off. Firstly if you took them to a dealer the dealer will only offer face value for either the $50 or $100 because of their condition. At either a flea market or coin show I would sell the $50 for $55 and the $100 for between $107 - $109 MAX. The...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

Is it in a soft sleeve or a hard case? If you can take a good clean picture of it (out of the holder) and post it we may be able to help on the possible grading. If it is as you say then it could be worth a good buck. It might be one of the few time it could be worth sending it or taking it to Kitch...

Re: Prefixes for 1975 $50.00 confusion

Look at the blank start line above the EHX and *HB & *HC lines

Those are for all other prefixes.
