[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.
