a nice project over xmas and boxing day, this brick was mostly paper:

after initial sortation of the 1000 notes:

the totals came to:

Jenkins-Dodge (2006): 4 (bottom centre)
Jenkins-Carney (2008-2011): 674 (left)
Macklem-Carney (2011): 56 (top centre)
Macklem-Poloz (2013): 266 (right)

sad to see all the birds have disappeared     :'(

notable finds in the J-K:

Two replacement notes in HPU:

two interesting serials (the first one SO CLOSE!!! to a 2-digit radar):

...and in the M-P polymers I found two notables:

this 4-digit radar with a big crease   :'(

and probably the best find of the whole brick was this super low note!!!              :P

Nice finds!  :)

Yeah I miss those birds too.  :'(  The birds series is probably my favorite series.

You seem to be having quite a bit of luck with these bricks, especially with M/C notes.  I don't brick but I was having a bit of luck in November with the M/C 5$ notes in change or in small amounts from the bank.  Now they seem to have all disappeared again.  :(

Wow, you're the first person I've ever heard say that! Most have said the Bird series, as a whole, was the butt-ugliest series ever released by the BoC.

Wow, that's a good haul of 56 MC 2011, specially the HAE which is so difficult to find.
I've seen HAF-HAL in circulations, but never HAE.

Lately there seems a few of them out in circulations, right before and after the polymer got out, but I can only see HAK & HAG in this location.

It would be nice if you can break down how many of each HAE-HAK prefix you got there. Thank You.

Yes, I like the birds series too, specially the nice red $50.  I still see a Birds in odd times here. Got a used $20 yesterday from a local Credit Union.

Sounds like you had fun!  I'm disappointed though that of all that data, only four notes were shared with the SNDB.  I again encourage you to enter all of the notes from your brick to the SNDB.

I didnt keep detailed records this time sorry. Out of 56 M-C there were 2 HAE and the rest roughly in proportion to the "Qty reported" in the SNDB.

I took a pic of the 674 Jenkins Carney's after full sortation. The piles on the left are HPB (at the top) thru HPY on the bottom (HPZ not in the picture). The 5 piles on the right are HAA-HAE. There were 574 CBN bills in 26 series plus (not in this picture) 100 BAI bills in 29 series (e.g. AAG). You can imagine how much time this took! I actually spent 6 hours on this brick from start to finish and found a grand total of only 1 UNC bill in 1000 (the rest running from AG to AU):

If you want to know, in the 4 Jenkins-Dodge bills I had 1 APL, 1 APG, 1 AOV and 1 AON.

Wow- thank you for sharing. I am glad that you are able to get your hands on old bundles. It is becoming tougher. I would have loved to get a hand on those notes for my stick-star analysis.

And if you don't consider this to be detailed :o I will wait for your next batch of analysis. ::)

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

Holy moly, someone lend me $5000 so I can get a brick and I will definitely enter the data into the SNDB.  O:-)

jeez, how long would that take? I'd be up all night!! If it takes 30 seconds to enter a note that would be 8.33 hours without a break.  :-[

I entered a few more notes and hope to hit the 100 mark soon. Plus I have another brick coming next week...I'll do my best to enter 50-100 of them!
