[Samba] Special Characters in smbmount

Can you assist me in determining how to use smbmount using special
characters.  I have a Windows dir I want to share and its share name is
$transfer.  I use the $ as a prefix so that it rises to the top of the list
and is easily recognizable.

Here is the command I have tried  for the following directory d:\$transfer;
$transfer is a valid share on the D drive:

Smbmount //servername/$transfer  (could not resolve mountpoint)
Smbmount //servername/\$transfer (could not resolve mountpoint)

I can easily resolve it by dropping the “$” and all is well.  But I was
wondering if there is another special character needed or 
in order to use
the “$” in a dir name.

Thanks for any help.
