Generally speaking, they're not important to a collector.

To a numismatist, particularly one who researches printing and numbering methods, knowing the position numbers helps them first figure out the layout of the sheets, then where on that sheet any particular note comes from.

newbie here, referred to your site from CCF, had no idea your site existed, looks great! I've collected paper money since the 70's, never too seriously.

Last week I picked up a brick of polymer fives from RBC in Montreal and was thrilled to find 2 radars, a 3 digit and a 4 digit. A little voice in my head told me to record the serial numbers before returning them to the bank the next day (teller was not happy, takes about ten minutes to return a brick).  Unfortunately I failed to record the FP and RP numbers, which I see from this thread are useful to know, sorry! Since I kept 9 bills for my collection I have a few plate numbers.

The whole brick was HBP (plus I pulled a nice HBG7735777 FP35 RP35 a few days earlier). All of it Macklem/Poloz. Five notes in the brick were...what do you call them? position numbers? I thought they were replacement notes, what's the difference?

Anyway I'll gladly share my SN's with you but I can't find this SNDB of yours, where is it hidden?

Hi Bricker,

Lots of great collectors/researchers here.   So, I am sure you will get to know other members here. 

Enjoy and happy hunting!

Greetings!

I am FrontierMountie, call me Mountie if you wish, I am a new member to the forums  :)

About 2 or 3 weeks ago, I picked up 2 new HBH notes and 1 new FTD note from the bank, which I brought home and recorded in the SNDB. A week ago, in my change, there were about  3 or 4 new 5 dollar notes, and 2 new 10 dollar notes, which I forgot to bring home and put in the SNDB  :( I kept one though, since it looked special. It was HBH 9946699, FPN and BPN 49. A new high for the SNDB! Also, I have a few questions to ask. Do trinary notes have any value? Also, am I able to enter old Bird Series or Multicolored Series in the SNDB?

Thanks! -FrontierMountie

Welcome to the forum!

What exactly is your definition of a trinary? I assume only 0,1, and 2's?
If so 2001002, 1002001, 0000112, 0000102.......for example would all have extra value beyond FV   :)

No. But there is a note registry for certain scarce prefixes in those two series. See note registry for more detail.

My definition of a trinary would be any 3 numbers (i.e. 9946699). Sort of like a binary, but with 3 numbers of any sort.

I'd say face value only.

I would agree FV only

Ok then. I'll just keep on passing along my so called "trinary" notes, since they're only FV. Thanks for your input guys.

One of my Bird notes, a $10 Bonin-Thiessen "BDH" Prefix Changeover in AU condition is only what I want to enter in the SNDB. Though I don't think the "BDH" Prefix is that scarce. I'll check the registry. Thanks.

There is no registry for BDH as we all know the changeover point and how many were printed. The point of the note registry is to collect as many numbers as possible on prefix where changeover and qty printed are all not known. For example in the birds series you have all the AUG-AUN notes

I think at this point it's safe to close this thread... The SNDB accepts all of the new polymer $5 and $10 notes, and there's really only one unknown: the M/C to M/P changeover.

So if you find any Macklem/Carney notes and want to brag about your luck, please create a thread for it.  Otherwise, for the rest of the new notes, please use the SNDB.  Thanks!
