Interesting note I found about a month ago. What are your thoughts?

This is a coin site... you should move this to the "note" section

Clearly says "Canadian Bank Notes and Paper Money - Including Grading, Varieties, and Errors" in the section I'm at.

My thoughts are:
"What does it feel like? & What does it smell like?" I have seen similar notes that have been exposed to a solvent & the colours change like that. That's my first impression & what it appears like to me. I may be wrong but the note looks fairly circulated & more a post-production change (or reaction to the polymer inks). A lot of people were "experimenting," exposing them to heat, alcohol & solvents to remove the holographic strip/SN's so it wouldn't surprise me.

I'd have to inspect the note to be sure tho.

walk2dwater, so my best bet is to probably send it in to get certified? Looks legit under the microscope. It appears that some of the printing is printed over top of the purple ink dots also top left 20 is printed over the purple dots. Feels normal, doesn't smell weird.

walk2dwater, I am honestly skeptical myself. It is a fairly obvious error that the quality control should have noticed + the fact that it had been in circulation for a while. But there's a part of me that thinks if it's a legitimate error could be worth a few bucks.

I noticed on your same post on another forum that you were going to get in
touch with Steven Bell @ BCS Ltd. What was the outcome of that?

JimmyD, I have yet to print off the form. Just thought I'd get some other people's thoughts on the bill. Seems to be a lot more knowledgeable people on this forum.

But what I'm basically getting is that the polymer bills have been extensively tampered with. So my best bet is to just send it in to get it a straight answer.

It may be hard to proof that it is a printing error unless more show up.
They are printed 4 across by 10 around so if it was some sort of an ink problem,
there would be more of them out there.
Still might be worth sending it in to find out for sure.

That's good that it doesn't feel/smell any different from any other $20.00. I would ask others to feel & smell it to just be sure. If others feel like you then you could submit it.

I always take a hard look at my notes to "guestimate" what grade it will get. Sometimes TPG's will simply state the grade & that it cannot be determined (if or if not) post production alteration. (I've seen this before) They don't always identify errors & reserve the right to reject. If he finds any nicks or damage the note will lose its "Original" designation & this will throw doubt as to whether somethings been done to it. On the other hand, he may have seen one and then that clears up the mystery.

walk2dwater, I won't get my hopes up and it's definitely circulated.

It's a very interesting $20 (& I hope that it proves to be something worthwhile) but I've seen enough not to get my hopes up either.

Re: certification
I submitted a number of pack fresh polymers from bundles to BCS & once got an UNC64 with no "Original." When I called Steve to ask why, he told me he found a nick in the polymer. Some collectors have a certify anything mentality but I think its always good to consider the cost & potential grades gains (& possible losses).

BTW: have you thought about posting your enquiry at the CPMF?

Decided to just contact The Bank of Canada Museum.
