In fact, I would go as far as to speculate that the claim that HBG 0000000-3200000 exists may be fabricated to make Macklem-Carney notes seem less rare and thus less appealing.

You're giving someone at the Bank a lot of credit.  I believe that it's simply a matter of pretty much everything else you've said (ill-informed front line employees, etc.) plus a healthy dose of trumped up "security" concerns and a deep-running "we don't care" culture when it comes to the collecting community.

One of the key reasons why the SNDB exists is to collect data for situations like this.  The serial numbers reported via this website have been confirming (or in some cases disproving) the information given to us from the Bank of Canada for over a decade.

We have seen this before where confirmed ranges doesn't necessarily mean all notes within that range was circulated. A few examples... $5  HOH 2004 confirmed changeover 5970000 yet only notes under 0.2M were actually circulated. $10 FEV 2004 confirmed to end at 4310999 yet the highest reported was around the 1.00M range. In fact, the insert range for FEV is 0.36-1.035M and all FEV notes reported to-date have only been in that range, so no regular FEV note has ever surfaced. So very likely that the HBG will be the same, only a handfull were circulated all within the same range. Perhaps this might be the case with the $100 EKZ notes.

Correction to this posting, there was indeed one note found above 0.2M (5950855) and that was by kobecurrency in oct 2013 according to the serial number database, which makes you wonder even more just where the others are??? There may have been one sheet just before the changeover that got circulated.

Kobecurrency do you have a photo of the 2004 HOH5950855?

Even in the Charlton catalog up until the 26th edition it is written on the 2002 $5 page Highest reported HOH 2004 is HOH0187763. Is there still a note about HOH 2004 notes listed in the 27th edition?

Unfortunately I don't.

I do remember when I input it last Oct., it showed that the previous high was something may be in the  0.2 range.  I did double check the print date was right and if my posting was correct.  I held it out for a while to see if anyone would mention it here, but nothing happened.

Later when we were all looking for HBG M/C, I believe I inadvertently turned it into the bank within thinking. Now I don't have anything to prove I did have that note.:'( :'(

I'm curious about what parts of Canada these M/C Frontier notes have been found in. Anyone who has pulled one from circulation, please post!

I have been keeping track of M/C polymer fives, reported on the forum and/or SNDB, or sold on eBay. Here is where they have been found:

2 in Victoria
1 in Vancouver
3-4 in Edmonton
7-8 in Southern Ontario
1 in Mississauga
2 in Ottawa
1 in Montreal
1 in New Brunswick

I have looked for these notes since May here in Toronto, and have not found any.

Neither have i. From what i see, these notes seem to be equally as rare as the famous $10 BEL and BER notes. They're around but it will take some time finding one.
