This was first noted by AZ last year (in GPM30 Typos thread) and still remains unrevised:

1. Page 304, BC-60a (first line). The denomination letter should be AJ, not AI.

-Going through the new Charlton Guide (with the new Viola Desmond note on the cover) I have to say that Steven Bell made the most of the suggested revisions to this new book (as new editor).  I really appreciate the new pictures that were added immediately following the Introduction to Grading (xxvii & xxvii). 

One portion of page 375 could be revised in light of our knowledge that insert replacements are no longer being used.  In the last sentence of the 2nd paragraph it reads:
"It is possible that the overrun was produced to replace defective notes,..." which could be changed to:
"It is likely the the overrun was produced to replace..."
- and later under "PREFIXES AND NUMBERING"
Last sentence: "Each series consists of numbers from 0000000-9999999, the zero note being removed and a replacement note substituted."   Omit: :and a replacement note substituted. 
(as this correlates, rather than contradicts information under "REPLACEMENT NOTES" below on page 375 & again on page 377).

This one is fairly significant & to my surprise occurred in last year's (GPM30) edition but we didn't catch it:

The price values for Ser.A and Ser.B have been shifted under the $2 heading
-when they are supposed to be under the $1
(GPM 29 stands as the last issue the BV chart was correctly printed and values were below the $1)

In addition to this error, there is also a typo with the French Text chart immediately below for $2
Sheet #1 shows a value of 1,800 but I believe it should be 18,000 (a zero was dropped)
[GPM30 French Text #1 note was 16,500]

bc-69bA 2013 $5 HCA 7.893 - 7.992 is a typo and should be 7.893 - 7.902M for a 9,000 range
