The majority of the $5 Macklem-Carney that are being sold on Ebay lately are HAK prefix which doesn't reflect the numbers we have in the SNDB.

Actually the majority of the M/C notes reported in the SNDB are in fact HAK prefixesn and it has been documented in the SNDB.

If you go the SNDB home page with the High/Low colourful table of all the prefixes
And scroll below it to the 2nd last link

"Most Common Recently-Entered Prefixes (2 Months)" (which is labelled "NEW" )
and go to:
>Canadian Journey Notes
and select the
($5) link
-You will get a bar graph and if you bring your mouse over the CBN graph, you will see that 9 notes were recorded for HAG prefix while HAK shows 22 notes reported in the past 2 months.

Perhaps more importantly, many of the newly reported HAK notes fall within the first ream, i.e., in the range 0000000-0359999.

HAK was one of the scarcer M-C prefixes until recently.

That's kind of funny for me here. I've gone thru tons of used fives, I've seen most prefixes of 2011 fives but I've yet to see a HAK & HAJ and of course the elusive HAE2011 in my location.

I was refering to the total of notes entered for each Macklem-Carney prefix but I agree that the stats about the notes entered in the last 2 months talks more than the total to explain what we're seeing on Ebay at the moment.

It is hopeless here  because all I keep on getting is crisp 2010 notes and that too in sequential order. It seems that wherever I go used notes of all types are scarce let alone 2011 notes.  :(

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

An acquaintance at Where's Willy reports that his workplace obtained half a brick of HAK592____ in their weekly order from the bank. Perhaps there will be a flood of them over the next two weeks.

I think I know what's happening as of lately.  With the polymer $5 and $10 notes only a couple of weeks away from their first releases, and the BoC having so many crisp $5 notes in stock, I have a feeling that, during the final weeks of the Journey $5's, the BoC is likely aggressively clearing out as much of the unissued crisp $5 Journey notes as possible before the changeover to the new Polymer version.

It seems to be quite common that my local banks' final shipments of old issue notes are usually a shipment of crisp bills to close it off.  I have a feeling that my local Scotiabank will receive a shipment of crisp $5 and $10 bills as the official final shipment (if they do receive their final shipment within the final 2 to 4 weeks of the Journey era) pretty soon, if they haven't already.

I feel quite confident about the Polymer $5 notes coming to my local branch soon after its release, but the $10, I am totally not as confident, since the branch's shipment of $10 notes goes (much) slower, given the $10 notes' very low demand and how they don't buy anything except for Starbucks and The Second Cup items, items at a bar or pub, and fast food meals.

  Basically these last 2 weeks (and maybe a few after the polymer release) will be do or die for those unreleased 2011 M/C 5$ notes (if they exist).

I have a feeling that we are going to be seeing many more 2011 M/C 5$ notes coming over the next few weeks.  It can't be a coincidence that I just got 2 HAK and 1 HAF today in change from a few different places after never getting a single one since like the beginning of the year   ;D

Got another HAF today.  Weird anyone else seeing a sudden increase in the number of M/C 5$ they get in change/bank?

That's odd.  Since September 18th, there has been only 1 HAF note reported to the SNDB.  Whoever is finding them is keeping them a secret.

Now I wonder who that could be   O:-)  ;)

On a more serious note I finally got the time this week to post them go check it out!  I will usually enter notes all at the same time once a week or something so there may be a delay in what I post being entered in the SNDB  :)

Taking a look at the SNDB it appears the 2011 M/C 5$ paper notes now end near the end of prefix HAL as it says it is confirmed by the BoC.

I think the big question now is what they did with all the notes HAM-HAZ and HBA-HBG???

I hope they didn't destroy them.  If they did print them and destroy them, that would be a lot of notes and quite a waste for the BoC and it would also mean no M/C polymer 5$ notes  :(
