I have the same issues as I did with the Journey series notes. I sometimes get a full scan but when I save it, the bill is only a fraction of the size.  At least I get a partial scan for the SNDB.

I used my Sony Camera with Night Vision and here's what I got....

1.  The right side serial number does not appear at all.   The word Canada does not appear
and also the number 100 does not show on the photo except for the inside shading of the last zero.
The insulin bottle also does not show.

2.  On the front side of the note, only "10" shows up on display, and
only 50% of Borden's portrait can be seen.

Sent a brief email to the BOC expressing my dissapointment and not expecting that I'll get much of a reply.  Thought it was worth a try if it helps with the remainder of the series.

I also e-mailed the BofC a few months ago with my disappointment about the Canadian Coat of Arms not appearing on the new notes.  I got a bland reply that during the design process, careful consideration was given on what elements to add or subtract from the new series.  Yet personally, I still find it unpatriotic, almost treasonous, to remove our Coat of Arms after it has featured on BofC notes since the 1954 series!  :(

I wonder if they may incorporate the Coat of Arms on one of the remaining three notes to be issued. It may be appropriate to feature it more prominently on the twenty-dollar note if they will continue to feature the reigning Monarch on that denomination.

I have no idea but just throwing it out there as a possibility since the Coat of Arms is a big part of the design of only one of the Canadian coins, albeit the fifty cent piece which is rarely used.

Anyone notice that the signatures are now on the intaglio plate? (As small as the signatures are???)

And just for a chuckle, this morning (Nov 16) there was a ticker on CBC news network that read "Merchants not sold on the new $100 note. Counterfeit proof, but not theft proof". What a gem from our wonderful national broadcaster! If I didn't know better, I'd say all notes are not theft proof, but that's just me.

Happy to report that the new $100s seem to be widely available in the GTA. Some TD branches I visited were giving them out to all customers that requested $100s in withdrawals.

Got another full bundle at a TD branch this morning, this time it was fully consecutive, no inserts. I did get a nice repeater, EKD4000400.  :) Too bad they didn't have the bundle with the million numbered and 2-digit radar!

I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me, but it seems if you tilt the notes in bright light on the backside, you can see a square over the image of the microscope. It doesn't glow under UV light, nor does it show in infrared light.

To coinsplus:

May I ask what the purpose of the experiment with the night vision setting of your camera was?

Here is a link to a short video showing the production process of the new $100.

Hi JohnnyG5:

The purpose of this experiment was to see what elements of the invisible security features the BofC implemented with their new polymer notes.

Yes, I saw the same headline on CablePulse TV Toronto and wondered what the hell it meant! LOL.  A hundred bucks is a hundred bucks; people would want to steal it even if it were printed on toilet paper.

I've also noticed that Sir Robert Borden looks pretty normal on the 1975 series $100 notes, but gets progressively cock-eyed and demented looking with each of the 3 series that followed...

Finally picked up a few today, certainly interesting.
I scrunched one up and its corner gave me a polymer cut  :-\

And the maple leaf window feature is a definite flop. I asked the BoC rep how to check the feature and she recommended using the flashlight on an iPhone 4. Spent an hour testing different lights and couldn't find it. What's the point of a security feature if it can't be easily checked?
I couldn't get it ether till I held it directly in front of my eye. Any bright light works, just use your hand to obscure all but a tiny hole.

I collect banknotes depicting Tallships. And to a lesser degree, all watercrafts.

I realized that I was holding the note too close to the flashlight. I think it has to be a foot or so away from the light source to get a clear look.

This may be premature, but this looks like a possible lawsuit...a few more and I would be willing to start a class action suit.  Who knows....we may all end up with bricks of $100 before it's all over  8)

I wonder if there are actually JHS notes.  I was viewing a few videos and pausing them trying to get a view of the serial numbers.  It looks like the sheets are printed with the 5X8 format.
