1954 Canadian Dollar

Postby Ginalola » Sat Jan 28, 2012 1:46 pm

I am new here and learning. I have a Canadian one dollar bill and the serial number starts with CI. Just wondering if that is worth anything? Also a lot of the serial numbers listed have a * in front of them , what does that mean and what if you have the first 2 letters but not the*?

The * stands for "replacement note". You need to have the * on your bill for it to be a replacement.

What are the signatures on your bill and what's the entire serial number?

It has R.W. Lawson and G.W. Bouey serial # CI 9787105 but no *. I don't think its ever been used.

I saw a 1 dollar 1954 with a prefix of *A/A with the signature of J.R. Beattie & L.Rasminsky.
I saw in this site, 1 dollar 1954, Beattie-Coyne or Coyne-Towers with the prefix of *A/A?
But not with J.R. Beattie & L.Rasminsky signature
Does it worth the same?
Thank you very much

You should really put this question on its own post so that we don't
have two different conversations going on here.
I will answer your question once you do that.

There were 40 million bills printed in that series so even in CH UNC,
it would still only be worth around 4 or 5 dollars
