HPA, appearing on both 2002 and 2006 $5 notes, is, I believe, the first time the same prefix has appeared on a regular note over two different years of issue on the same denomination since the 1937/1954 series.

The only other time I can find it occurring since then is on EHX (1975 and 1988 $50 replacement notes) and AJX (1975 and 1988 $100 replacement notes). 

Am I missing any?

I have noticed that only 1 HPA 2006 Series note has been reported so far... has anyone else seen this particular prefix or are they considered scarce?

With "reported so far" I am assuming you are referring to the SNDB - and there are a number of prefixes that have not had a lot of entries.  I would not jump to the conclusion that a note is scarce just due to fact that there have been only a few entries.  I believe this was discussed before.   Not long after the 2006 HPA came out I saw a enough listed on ebay to hardly consider them as "scarce" but they are a change-over.

Going back to Seth's original query- I'm not entirely clear on what he's asking.

Is he enquiring about different series (2001 AOF vs  2006 AOF) being continued with the same prefix, or simple yearly change-overs (like $5 HOH)?

I think the original query has to do with the continuation of numbering a prefix across two different series.  In other words, one series comes to an end at a certain prefix and number, and the next series of notes with a different design style starts at or close to where the previous series left off instead of starting the new series with a whole new prefix.

The real question is whether the original and upgraded Journey notes constitute one series or two because of the design changes in $5 and $10 notes.  I vouch for all Journey notes being one series, in which case it's a moot point that prefixes AOF and HPA appear on both original and upgraded versions of the series.

The continuation of numbering practices from one series to another is not at all unusual.  The Birds series $20 note was printed up to prefix EYF and AYP.  The Journey series $20 notes start at EYG and AYR.  Many other examples can be found.  That the replacement prefixes EHK and AJX carried across from multicolour series to the Bird series is interesting but not really significant.  Since the same printers continued to print each denomination, and since there was only one replacement prefix for $50 and $100 notes, it's logical that the numbering of these notes continued from one series to the next.  With all of the surprises we're finding with Journey notes, we might be a little bit jaded to find stable consistent practices in previous years ;) .

Yes i was referring to the SNDB, but was also wondering if anyone has seen them around to get an idea on availability of this note. I have never found one yet.

We need to keep in mind that prefixes tend to be released in reverse order because the "oldest" notes in a batch get put in the back of the vault while the "newest" are toward the front, and when taking notes out of the vault, they start from the front.  CBN has been prolific in their printing of Journey notes, so this is a common occurrence.  That's not to say that all of the HPAs went to the back of the vault.  I'm sure a few went out the door, and that trickle has been detected in circulation.  It takes a couple of years to determine if a prefix is actually scarce or not.  But anyhow, it's not really surprising that HPAs have been few and HAA's have been plenty.

For what it matters, I still have not seen any 2009 BFH's.
