This is currently considered a rare note, one that many collectors are searching for. Range confirmed by bank of canada is 0000000-3619999. So far only a handfull of these notes have been reported and all within the 3M range. You have a nice find and you should hang onto that note. Personally i still think though this note is not as rare as it appears to be. I think that there are more out there and that people are hanging onto them. We will see as time goes on. But i have yet to find one myself and would love to have one as its the ONLY Macklem-Carney $5 note for that series in circulation.

None. One showed up once on e-bay and sold for around $200 if i remember correctly. Give it time. I expect them to start showing up gradually on the market.

There are now 27 M/C HBG notes in the SNDB.

Hi Claude,

I think many of us have searched thousands of polymer $5.00 notes and have failed to find a M/C signature combo (between 3.2 to 3.400,000 note). 

Mmars is the first to propose many good reasons why the M/C signature combo may be rare in another thread on the Polymer Signature change-over:

Hope this helps,

Hey Claude I found the "other" M-C HBG from Quebec, there are 28 in the SNDB of which TWO came from QC about a year apart. Now I'm inspired to order another brick...watch out tellers at RBC I'm gonna make you "work for nothing" again!

This is a really nice note! Out of the 28 notes recorded in the SNDB it may easily have the highest grade. Now after a year of circulation M/C HBG fives in this condition are less and less likely to be found.

After 6 months of searching through LOTS of fives I am finally giving up. There appear to be no M/C HBG notes here in Toronto. I did buy a VF-EF note from another forum member back in the summer.

I'm not so sure there are none left out there: if a few thousand were shipped and only 28 have been pulled (plus maybe a few found but not in the SNDB) I think the odds of finding one are the same now as they were a year ago. I have TWO bricks coming in next week, will post my findings!

Also I think 6 of the 28 were found in south western ON so the odds may be higher in your area.

Don't give up...I found one from a bundle of fives I picked up from a Scotiabank in downtown Toronto in October.  You never know when you'll find one...It's part of the thrill of hunting!

I have posted 3 on there from the Cambridge area and just got one a about week or so ago.  All have been very heavily circulated.  Finding one in EF or better is even more of a challenge.
