Here's the infamous Canadian $2 Bill, 1954 Modified Portrait. Keep an eye out for the 'Devil's Hair' versions. This bill was unpopular in the Canadian Prairies for a few reasons. One, back in the day, prostitutes cost 2 bucks. Married men didn't want to be caught with $2 bills or they would be guilty by inference. Women didn't like them because of the connitation. But a big reason they were unpopular was because the cash registers were American made and didn't have a slot for the extra $2 bills. Here's an old article fm 1967 detailing just how unpopular they were in the Prairies.

For a brief moment I thought this was going the way of "The Curse of the Deuce":


Quote:
In the late 1800's some of the things you could do with a $2 note were: Buy a vote, Buy "services" at a brothel, or place a bet. Respectable persons feared others would think they had "earned" the "Duece" by selling their vote, their body, or as a habitual bettor. To combat the "Curse of the Deuce," many people tore corners off the note. Pregnant women who received a note with all four corners torn off believed they would have twins. Cashiers imagined themselves immune from the "Curse" if they kissed the note upon receipt In the old days, it was believed that saliva contained magical powers that would contain a curse long enough to pass the offending article to another who would have to find their own way of defending themselves.

Or maybe it is indeed the same thing

After my recent auction splurge this is whats left over after cherry picking all the best bits for my collection.
Its been fun going through it all and assessing whats there.

This was part of a single collection which was described as mixed grades. As it turns out a few of the more desirable notes were uncirculated and so I switched out some of my own with them. Also there were a few varieties I didn't have (early Peppiatt white note, a couple of types with different printing techniques, some treasury notes with different types of serial number)

I also added a couple of other cool notes, a Bernard forgery, a dry ink error and more treasury notes. I need to photograph these and will show them here in the near future. For now I am listing these ones on ebay...hopefully they will subsidise my additions. I haven't really sold before and so now I am trying to strike the balance between pricing them to sell and getting as much back as I can. So this endeavour will probably be a learning experience too...

Very nice note
Looks as if it is unc or aunc.
Also, very low serial number. (B is the year of printing, 29 the position on the sheet, then comes the actual ''serial number'').
Congrats.
