Re: Signature Change-overs (PREFIXES to look out for)

The FZZ is just a regular prefix. The BoC stopped inserting replacements sometime before 2015 (& the issue of the Commemorative $20). Instead they just started another prefix (FWW for the 2015 $20) to meet the order demand. Check this link out for an explanation on insert replacements : https://cdnp...

Re: *WA. New to Data Base

A) Make sure you have some type of dry-aid, safe desiccant & the note's stored in a proper PVC-free currency sleeve B) Be sure to grade that note as this will attract more serious collectors. One of the CDN TPG's is Banknote Certification Services ( BCS ) & this is their site address. Steve is very ...

Re: *WA. New to Data Base

That *WA $20 replacement is a significant find but I'll be surprised if "CarmieG" still checks in here. My Charlton puts this scarce note at "80" issued with few estimates of 5 figured Book Value in upper grades. It would be a trophy note for most collectors & hopefully certified by now! Wonder when...

Re: Does anyone know anywhere I can get a $50 devil face note?

It will depend on a lot of factors including minimum grade acceptable (which you haven't stated), eye appeal, original (or not), etc. The higher/stricter your requirements could make your pursuit either easy or or more difficult. Since the pandemic, everything has become a bit more dear but a lot of...

Re: 2 dollar bird series prefix

Catalogues only single out prefixes that are more collectible/sought after rather than regular prefixes. Here's the scoop on the AUG to AUN $2.00 according to my 2019 Charlton: The Thiessen-Crow signature combination was intended to begin with $2 note AUK1640000. However, notes with the Thiessen-Cro...

Re: 2 questions about banknote collecting.

I have a fairly small rural library. It’s possible but I will also check eBay. One of the hardest parts of being a collector is I don’t have a lcs :( The nearest LCS to me is over 1 hour drive from where I live. I went 2 years ago to get some large currency sleeves. If I buy the sleeves by bulk, I ...

You might want to consider registering & entering your notes on Numista. Once you've done that & have participated on their forum for a while, you may also wish to swap notes (which the site allows) with fellow members.
