Collected something like 200 notes today. Got 2 3-digit radars at the end, but no luck finding the apparent first prefix (AHU).

I did get a very narrow range of $50s from Scotiabank branches in downtown Toronto, each branch seemed be off by 1000 notes. All have been entered into the database.

I was doubting the actual issue of the AH prefix but I see we have 1 registered by wizard.  Unless of course he acquired it from a different avenue.

The other thing is that the 1 note is the highest and lowest serial registered and in the quantity section it shows it as 2 notes.  I wonder if this is screwing up the real count?

I'd wager most, if not all ATMs that dispense 50s in downtown Toronto are giving out the polymer 50s. I sampled a good number of them today, and they're giving them out without a hitch.

I can confirm AHUs in circulation. Only had the cash to buy 2  :-[, but they're out there.

My AHZ note was found within my AMA brick. It is most likely an unconfirmed Replacement note. Hopefully its a SNR replacement since the FB/BP numbers did not match the AMA's numbers.

It was funny that after reading this post, I got AHUs and AHWs from a bank teller and AHVs from an ATM within 30 minutes, after 2 days of searching dozens of bank branches and ATMs and ending up with nothing but the AMA/AMB/AMC/AME notes.

Has anyone else noticed the lithograph printing flaking off where the tactile dots are? This seems to be happening on a lot of uncirculated notes I've gotten my hands on.

I've noticed the tactile dots are a bit more pronounced on the $50s compared to the $100s.
