    I've had someone pay me in original Confederate money a few years ago. It is a nice treat to get something old.

    Very cool... Kudos to the person that made the choice to be different in this new age of crap that I detest.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    I have a habit of putting my lesser notes back into circulation. Red 2's and 5's, old worn silver certs and somewhat ragged feds. I figure if someone else sees them and wants them, good for them. If they happen to make it back to the fed? Well I see that as a benefit to the hobby since they will destroy them. Thus creating a little more stability within the hobby as far as quality and quantity.

    at our coin club (in Nanaimo,BC-Canada) , we tip the server ladies with $1 and $ 2 Canadian Notes. they always get a kick out of it. (club meetings are in a restaurant back room.

    Many Americans might not realize those notes are no longer produced in Canada. ;)

    yes, that is so true. But there are literally millions, many millions of them stashed away with e hope they will increase in value.....Not.

    I'll have to admit to snagging ten $2 bills at a bank during a visit to NB some years ago. The next time I come across then I suppose I'll pick out one or two of the best ones as souvenirs and put the rest into my "spend" pile along with a mountain of Canadian coins for my next visit.

    before you spend these, watch for asterisks before the #= replacement notes.

    I think these were newer issues but thx for the heads up. I'll keep that in mind,

  • johnny9434johnny9434 Posts: 20,076 ✭✭✭✭✭

    nothing wrong with that :)

    I live in the NE USA, lots of Canadians seem to find it easier to get rid of older Canadian bills by exchanging them in American banks. I've gotten loads of 1954 and 1970s notes by buying them in banks.
