The foreign exchange said they wont take it as it is ripped and the only option is to exchange it when I go back to Canada.

 

 

Never been to Canada, unlikely I will ever go.

 

 

Anyway to exchange it in Britain?

 

 

Thanks

Just under £5.00 live rate..

 

The bank of Canada would normally look at exchanging damaged notes, but I think takes up to 60 days to deal. I rather suspect they might not be interested in 10$ :(

......when I go back to Canada.

........

Never been to Canada, unlikely I will ever go.

 

Why would you have a Canadian $10 note (ripped or otherwise), then?

How can you "go back" to Canada if you have never been there in the first place?

 

Methinks this isn't the whole story.

I would suggest you have to consider how much effort you are going to put in for less than £5 (bank rate), once fees have been taken you would probably get about £4 in exchange.

Obviously I was practicing a new magic trick but am not skilled at it yet and manifested, through thought alone a ripped Canadian note. I was going for a £20 note (not ripped). Back to the drawing board.

 

Or

 

 

Someone gave it to me. ;-)

I have emailed The Bank Of Canada. Will post reply. Just to see if there is a solution.

 

 

Many Thanks.

Try a Post Office that does foreign currency, as they may not be as fussy. If they show any reservations, say you were hoping to donate the money to a local charity.


We could do with some help from you.

It is surprising how much effort I would be willing to put into this. I think of it as my womble hobby. :-)

Perhaps next time you are in London, pop in to the Canadian Embassy and see if they could help.

And the "going _back_ to Canada" when you've not been?

(Rather than just "going to Canada").

Magic, indeed.

Give it to a charity - some have arrangements in place to exchange current foreign notes. Or stick it on eBay with a 99p start - there may be someone daft enough to bid more than face value for it!

I do not want to give it to Charity.

My time is wisely spent.

Just have to send it back to Canada now where apparently it will go to a laboratory to be inspected and assessed for signs of having been eaten by mice, rats, water/ fire damage, decay from being buried behind walls or in deed any kind of bio hazard! etc.

 

 

Easy

First, however, I am going to try a little bit of clear tape and try again at a different foreign exchange.

I hope you manage to get the £4 paid here, Clear33. :) Otherwise the postal costs could wipe out a lot of your gain.
