    In not too bad condition, is this worth any money (besides a dollar)?

    I don't have a pic of it yet my mother found it and is sending it to me. But figured i'd get a jump on it.

    Since you say king george, I will assume it is a 1937 and will be worth 5$ or so in fine condition. Anything previous to that is worth substantially more. If it is in better then fine condition, I have the book right beside me :)

    The is a bit confusing to me. the signatures look different then ther ones listed in the book. The one thst most closely resembles the sigs on the note is P-58e with the sig combo of Coyne and Towers. the confusion comes in the first sig .. to me, it doesnt look like Coyne. i see the 'yne' but it looks like an 's' before the 'y'.

    That note is worth $3 in VG condition as quoted in the book. I dont think the note you posted is quite there, so maybe around $2 or so to the right buyer.

    see thats whay i thought it looked like too ... but the way some folks write their sigs, it can be almost impossible to liegibly understand what they are writing - myself included lol

    Either the Krause books are wrong (is that even possible lol) or we are just seeing the sig wrong. I can almost see the sig as being Coyne too... but its tough. The E can be a loose badly written C, the S can be a badle written O ... and then the YNE. But that still leaves the t 'squiggles' prior to the badly written C.

    Its too much for me to think that is COYNE.

    I even did a search on Google for 'Canada P58e' and with all the hits i checked, at least a dozen showed your note as being it.. and at least one mislabled as a 58e that clearly is not.

    the world may never know :D

    I will have to re-look when i get home, but i do believe i am using the 13th edition of the Krause books, "The standard catalog of world paper money". I have all 3 volumes.

    Also, the price i looked at was for P-58e, some of the other varieties for P-58 did have higher values. P-52b i believe got to be over $100 (i think, one of the varieities did get higher)

    Are we looking at the same image? It looks exactly like "JECoyne" to me....:confused:

    Daggarjon Supporter**

    i think we are :) but to me, the bottom stroke on the 'o' makes it look like an 's' to me. Also, if that second letter after the J is an E, the strokes to the E face the wrong direction, and the 3rd letter looks more like an L then a C.

    It could very easily be a messy sig, it just doesnt look like 'coyne' to me :rolleyes:

    and i lied about my books :eek: they are all "standard Catalog of World Paper Money' and my 1961-present book is 13th edition, but the other two books are 10th and 11th editions. The middle book, 1358-1960 is the 11th edition... so if there is a later edition with newer pricing, then snaz's price might be more accurate.

    Just to help settle this, it is Coyne and he just wrote his name oddly. Yeah...

    Snaz, there seems to have eben a post or two that was lost... but the poster said he had a book titled Chatlons... or something like that. Is that the book you have? The Krause books do not have a 20th edition... yet

    lol. I'm confused now. I know close to nothing about paper money. so what's the difference between the sigs and does it make a difference in the price?

    different sig combinations are almost like different notes. Since each sig combo has its own print run, each sig combo can have vastly different number of notes printed, and therefore some sig combos can be much rarer then others.

    fewer notes can easily translate to higher asking prices for notes with different sig combos :)
