Has anyone seen this presentation that gives the secrets away on the rarities ?

Using these tools, many of us have made a lot of easy profit and built our collections at low cost but now this guy is going to let out all these secrets. It has taken many of us years to paw through books and research to detect the valuable varieties and in just a few minutes this easy to understand presentation quickly indoctirinates the beginner on exactly what to look for and how.

OMG. This guy is giving. it. all. away!
Shocking at best. and EPIC - Think Bruce Lee vs SanFran Kung Fu Association. We can not train the QuaiLo in the ways of our masters.

    Excellent video for all levels of experience, from beginners to seasoned collectors. Robert is a genuinely nice guy too, always promoting the hobby.

    I enjoyed it. Each cherry picked note was explained very well. I think its great that Robert is sharing this info (some examples from his own experience, some from others).

    I always look for poorly described listings. A couple times I've missed radars or low # that were not listed as such. I also remember attending a couple of shows: one time a collector friend saw this radar (+ an insert replacement) $10 and paid the coin dealer about $5 over FV (b/c the coin dealer had no idea). It was worth about $90-$100 (at least).

    It is this "depth" to collecting currency that is even more complex and intriguing than coins because we have serials numbers for both the note and the printing plates

    It won me over years (& years) ago. The only trouble is Cdn currency isn't so complex, so you'll never see "mules" & the type of complexity seen with BEP produced notes. With such massive print runs there's all sorts of "goodies" out there.

    The best we can do is missing FPN (Front Position Numbers) though we did have some "good-overs" (an old signature with a new prefix EEP, EES & EET) in our 1970's $10 (plus a few double-denomination errors in our Journey $10). That's about it though. Still see a lot of potential in the World currency market...
