2. Bid increments will be $.50 while the active bid is less than $10. If the active bid goes above $10, the increment increases to $1. The auctioneer may call for bids at increments other then these if he/she feels it necessary to stimulate competition.

3. Payment shall be made by cash, or check made out to TS&CC, at the end of the auction for the bidder's total amount for the auction.

5. Disputes shall be settled by a club officer at the end of the auction.

6. If a member is unable to attend, that member can have an attending member deliver a proxy bid to the auctioneer at the meeting.

The note donated by Alex Hall has serial number 13996

The note shown and the one being donated to the club auction grade out about the same. Alex sjut got his T-68 / PF-53 note back from PMG (see above image,) with an excellent grade and confirmation of his findings of the error in Series on this note type.  PMG and ALex’s grading were the same: a hand drawn/blundered 3 over 2 or perhaps a 3 over 5. Either way, it’s a rare error note and far better certified grade than the other note known as listed in Pierre Fricke’s latest 2014 guide, the bible on CSA notes.  Fricke lists it as Rarity 15, his highest grade of rarity for known notes. His listing is for a PF-53/T-68 in VF grade, Alex’s  PMG certified note grades out at Choice About Uncirculated/58. There is no pricing as the note has no sales figures to go by, so is called Speculative.  The grade of the note being donated  should be the same as the image above, AU or better. Rarity 15 notes, in their lowest range command many hunderds of dollars if not higher.
