1954 Canadian 1$ Bill (Unique Serial Number)

Recommended Posts

As the title says, I have a Canadian 1$ bill from 1954, the serial number is 5000000, there is a fraction of the letters z and m in front of the serial number (Z/M).

 

The signatures at the bottom are M. Beattie and H. Rasminsky.

 

The banknote is in rough shape (obviously well-circulated):

-There is a significant fold mark at the halfway point, and 2 less visible fold marks at the 1/4 and 3/4 points

-It's gathered dirt and if it was circulated a lot, sweat too (The usual white around the edges has turned yellow)

-One corner is folded, the others are slightly bent

-Around the border there are some bends

-On the reverse there is two clear liquid stains (saliva/rain???)

 

If you prefer to see a picture: http://postimage.org/image/8upaizggx/

The picture was taken in an area without direct light...the yellowish color is really only present on the border.

 

Could anyone give me an estimate on what it's worth?

 

Cheers!

-Jeremy

Hi!

 

It's a neat serial number, but being in pretty rough shape, I'd probably take a guess that retail value might be around $20 or so as a novelty.

Okay, thanks! I paid $5 for it so that's great!
