*WA. New to Data Base

Post by CarmieG » Sun Feb 18, 2024 7:29 pm

I’m excited about this one.
Any advice on how or who to sell?
*Note the top cut.

See what the experts say on this one but I would think you should have it certified.

Definitely get it certified and handle carefully. Put it in a protective holder
to prevent any marks or crease's which can devaluate it greatly.
With the front being off centre, it will prevent it from being a top grade but
if you can get it certified uncirculated, it could be a five figure find.

Thank you for the advise. This was part of an inheritance which proceeds will be divided with siblings.
I have a lot of notes to check but this one is the most promising thus far.

Wow!
A rare note indeed.
Definitely do as coinguy suggests, handle it very carefully, do not put it inside a book, and get it certified.
Google BCS grading for certification services.

Hey Carmie,
I am brand new to this discussion group, and am looking forward to meeting lots of people.
I am not sure if we are allowed to discuss buying and selling on this site, so please forgive me if I am breaking any rules.
I am an avid collector of Bank of Canada notes, and have a quest to obtain 1 note from every year, series, signature, and prefix. This is a very large goal, and I have been at it for over a decade, and am barely half way there.
Your *WA $20 note is very hard to find. Is there any chance it is still around, and if so, could it be available for the right price?
Thanks,
Ken Barrett

Why not email CarmieG in case he doesn’t see this post.
That way you can contact him directly.

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 we will see it at auction?
