I'm not too familiar with fancy serial numbers other than radars, ladders, etc. Is this considered a fancy serial number because the last 3 digits are exactly reversed compared to the first 3?

I'm afraid it isn't. If it were 6642664 it would be a repeater.

Here is a breakdown of the "special numbered" notes, that you should be looking out for. All of the prices are just estimates. (The prices are given for the Journey Series notes - Which is the currency that is used on a day to day basis) If a "special number" is on an older series of banknote, then it will be worth more. All of the estimates given are for Uncirculated condition. The price will change based on condition, denomination, and prefix.


Solid Radars: The serial number consists of only 1 digit. Since the majority of Canadian notes have a run of 10,000,000 (Serial Numbers 0000001 to 9999999) - There are only 9 "Solid's" per prefix. The serial number 8888888 is worth more and will be talked about later.

Example: 1111111, 2222222, 3333333
Price: $1,000 to $1,250
*Note: The serial number 8888888 is worth more and will be talked about later. (See "Rotator Note" Section)


Two Digit Radars: The serial number consists of only 2 digits.

Example: 1221221, 0300030, 5115115
Price: $75 to $170 (Roughly $70 over Face Value)


Three and Four Digit Radars: The serial number consists of only 3 or 4 digits. These are common notes.

Example: 1409141, 0049400, 2533352
Price: $20 to $120 (Roughly $15-$20 over Face Value)


Ladder Notes: A "Ladder Note" has a consecutive serial number. Ladder notes can be Ascending/Descending or Ascending/Descending Radars.

Example: 1234567 (Ascending), 1234321 (Ascending/Descending Radar), 9876543 (Descending)
Price: $400 to $475


Million Numbered Notes A million numbered note is exactly what it sounds like. The Serial number will consist of any number followed by 6 zeros. Just like the solid radar notes, there are only 9 of these per prefix.

Example: 1000000, 2000000, 3000000
Price: $400 to $550


Low Serial Numbered Notes Banknotes with a serial number that is 1000 or lower is considered to be a "Low Serial Numbered Note"

Example: 0000001, 0000050, 0001000 (Low Serial Number Radar)
Serial Number 1 - $1,550 to $1,750
Serial Number 2 to 9 - $110 to $325
Serial Number 10 to 99 - $20 to $180
Serial Number 100 to 999 - $18 to $135


Rotator Notes or "SWIMS" Note: The Serial Number on a Rotator note is the same as when you flip the note upside down. On a rotator note, the middle digit must be an 8 or 0, and the remaining digits have to be 0, 6, 8, or 9.

Example: 9000006, 8980686, 6990669
Price: $130 to $240
*Note: The Solid 8's Note is probably worth $1,500


Repeater Notes: Repeater Notes have a serial number that keeps repeating itself. These can include radars.

Example: 4014014 (401 Keeps Repeating), 0199019 (0199 Keeps Repeating), 5656565 (Two Digit Radar Repeater. 56 Keeps Repeating)
Price: $80 to $170 (Two Digit Cycle)
Price: $15 to $120 (Three Digit Cycle)


All Price Estimates are from "Charlton Standard Catalogue: Canadian Government Paper Money. 24th Edition"

I would call this a Trinary, too bad you had that "2" in there or else it would be a binary. The trinary notes don't command too much of a premium.

Thanks everyone for your input and thanks Canadian-Banknotes for this breakdown of all the different types of fancy serials. This really helps. I think I'll go through all my old notes to see if any of them fall in one of these categories...

Very Useful. Not really into bank notes yet but I've seen some of the terms in auctions and wondered what they meant. Thanks!

Canadian-Banknotes:

I guess then the definitions of a bookend and a repeater aren't clear enough to establish distinct boundaries between both.

I think "Bookends" are used to describe special numbers on American notes.

Most of the sources I could find agree with that definition:

Bookends

A bookend note has a serial number having the same sequence of digits at both ends. An example is serial number 63195631. "631" is the sequence of digits appearing at both the beginning and end of the serial number.



Makes me wonder why it would only apply to American banknotes ? Perhaps they coined it and it hasn't caught up with the rest of the world...

Maybe those are American sources.

The Charlton Catalogue for Canadian Paper Money only refers to these types of notes as Rotators, and does not mention Bookends at all.

When you search for "Bookend" on eBay (Under Bank of Canada) there are 0 results. However, a search for "Repeater" has 84.
