Hi,

Do the Macklem-Carney HBG notes have a Charlton number yet?

The current catalogue lists them as BC-69a with the Macklem/Poloz notes being BC-69b.

Do you think the Macklem Carney HBG notes are worthy of a registry?  There are only 25 reported so far in the SNDB.

I'm still scratching my head over what happened between HAL and HBG. It's just such a huge gap.  How many more notes were printed in there (either Journey series notes that were unreleased, or Frontier notes with carney's autograph) that got destroyed? Having such a huge gap leads me to believe it's a lot.

I doubt we'll ever know.

I doubt that they really destroyed so many notes, it would be a big waste of money. I think they either never printed them (but that would be strange) or they were stacked in the very back of the vault at first and they started emptying the vault from the front with the newer notes first and the early ones are still waiting as they keep adding new notes to the front. Maybe we'll see older notes come out later in time.

I received an email from the Bank of Canada and they said the missing prefixes were never printed. They said that "timing of note production and the Bank's transition from former Governor Mark Carney to Governor Stephen S. Poloz" account for the gap.

Thank you for sharing the information. It is good to see that others are having some good response from the BoC.

But what about the full range of the prefixes that were printed, i.e. HAE to HAL ? Did you pose that question?


Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

It would be interesting to know the outcome of these notes as it would appear that all these notes were issued in full however it seems clear that many bricks were never circulated and probably destroyed.

Funny how these notes are still described as RARE and GREAT INVESTMENTS...more of these available than many common notes  :-D



Always looking for #1 serial number notes in any denomination/any series

At least 50% of the notes on eBay are "rare".  Well, if you go by the titles and descriptions.

I have yet to see these common HBG notes here in Eastern ON.  They are scarce if they were never released in your town.  They are even scarcer if you live outside Canada.  No matter how common they are, there will always be some appeal for them given that this is the first time since the 1937 series that a signature combination occurred entirely within one $5 prefix (Osborne-Towers A/C).
