Due to other connotations, this note may be a bit more popular than most radars in the collector market.

i still "don't get" the premium these things command... cool factor for sure... but aren't they just as unique or individual as any other serial # ?


If you don't understand why there's a premium that's okay. There are a lot of collectors who don't get what's the 'big deal' about special SN, asterisk replacements, prefix change overs, or even high grade vs. circulated. Some just want any kind of sample of one denomination. Each to his own.

But if you like symmetrical # or statistics, or Math, & know a bit about the odds (how many times a 2 digit radar actually happens in 100M or 10M runs) then the appeal grows. It takes time usually (after you've collected for a while these things begin to matter).

I always have liked cool serial numbers (low #, 1000000 & repeaters) but I think after searching several bricks (1000) & so many bundles, it has made me realize how seldom & tough they all are. I'm lucky to find a repeater (let alone a 3-4 digit radar which is 1 in 1000).

Statistically, you are correct, but much of numismatics have to do with aesthetics, and I personally find some numbers to be more aesthetically appealing than others.

So I have a 1973 Canadian $1 dollar note with this number. So? is this considered a semi-decent number? This is Technically my first bill in my collection. I got it passed down to me and its my Start point. My first 2 bills that I bought were Dominion of Canada 25 cents 1923 bills. they are a bit rough but my first buy and are what got me into collecting.
