I don't have a current Charlton's Bank Note book, but I do have Edition 26 which is 2014.

In it on page 415 you will see single folds, which are relatively common.

The price for a 1986 $2.00 is $40 based on an UNK.

Based on your picture, your note is no better a VG, so if you refer to page 372 of the same book you will note that VG is 15% of the UNK value.

If you are lucky you might get $5.00 - $8.00.

The details are the same in the 2013 book.

I periodically do a flea market here in Calgary. If I had your bank note I would just throw it in my pile of circulated notes that I sell for between $3 - $4 and if someone happens to pick it up I would point out the feature to the person and tell them that it is actually worth a few more dollars if you find an eager buyer.

Otherwise it is just good to keep as a conversation piece.

You might get a little more on EBay, but it is not a rare enough note to command any special interest or a great deal of money. At least not in the Calgary Market.

Sorry to disappoint you.
