Incidentally, how should I report this in the sndb?  Do you only want the first and last notes in the bundle?
Yes, first and last would be fine.  If there are any changes of FPN/BPN, then first/last for each run.

I just checked the SNDB and now it appears there is another note entered in 5$ M/C polymer which is higher than BWJM's note but less than the 5000000 unconfirmed changeover.  I wonder if it is a M/C or a M/P?
The member who entered that note sent in scans.  It is a M/P note.  I have adjusted the unconfirmed changeover.

Hey Wizard1, Is that what a brick looks like?
Is the "do not use box cutter wrap" from the printer, or do banks do that when filling your order?

Happy hunting!

Very cool, I understand why getting them wrapped up would be better...
I picked up a couple bundles today and they are not sequential, somebody has been through them already!

I can spend my way out of what I picked up today after I look through them, but a brick, that would take a while.
The bank would loose patience with me if I returned that much cash.
Seems bricks are out of my league, but I am looking forward to entering my first notes into the SNDB :)

Just because they are not sequential does not mean that they have been gone through....they are usually mixed

Yeah they come like... The notes are strong but once there's a small tear then it tears like paper

Impressive. First time I have seen bricks in this manner. Thx for sharing.

I must say however after looking at the picture, I do not understand how notes in the bricks would necessarily be that much different in grade than notes in individual untouched bundles. It seems to me that the corners and edges can easily get affected in the  bundles no matter where they are located within the bundle.

The other thing is that the straps on individual bundles do not have the CBN logo and are wider. Do they have the Bank of Canada logo?

Noticing the serial number on the $5 note it seems that they are not in the standard sequence in the bundle that is seen with the serial number in the picture.

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

Picked up these two groups of notes the past 2 days:-

   HBG 7352622 - 625    17 17
   HBG 7352860 - 888    18 18

Notice the Position Nos. must have switched between note 625 & 860, which is only 235 notes apart.
Wonder what the exact changeover would that be.

The new notes are believed to be skip-numbered by 200, so the likely change is 799 / 800.

Tip to all: if you get a run of sequential notes, watch the position numbers because they may change within your run.  If they do, consider each set of notes as a separate run and enter the high and low from each run into the SNDB.

Found my first Radar!

Also the plate (or is this the position) number changed on the 5's

There were lots of missing numbers in the bundle, 15 sequential then a note missing, then 15 more and another missing.
Other than that I really don't know what I should be looking for when I search.

Excellent!

Yes, you need to watch those position numbers.  They will change frequently (i.e. every 200 notes), so check your sequential runs.

Why are the position numbers important to a collector? Is there some info I should be reading to get a better understanding of this?
Thanks
